Children who converse with their parents during television viewing are better able to evaluate and make sense of content. This research describes a system, called the parent trap, which sends messages to model dialogues that promote more fragment and longer conversations, which include inquiry and explanation. This paper suggests ways television shows can be authorized with additional, digital information to help parents learn strategies for conversing with their children.
