Prof. Levin Featured on NECN
November 17, 2010
Wheelock Professor Diane Levin was featured in a NECN report about the dangers posed by the sexualization of young children. The news piece, which aired November 15, featured Levin and several other child development experts. Levin, co-author with Jean Kilbourne of the book "So Sexy So Soon," noted that popular culture and technology inundate children with an onslaught of mixed messages at earlier ages than ever before. Corporations capitalize on this trend, and without the emotional sophistication to understand what they are doing and seeing, kids are getting into increasing trouble emotionally and socially.
