Children are vulnerable and easily swayed by everything around them Parents try to do everything in their power to protect their children from unhealthy environments They child-proof everything but they dont realize that thousands of strangers enter the home everydaythrough the television Television is in 98 of North American homes and the average Canadian child watches four hours of television every day Most parents do not realize that their children are watching violence-ridden television programs and that by the age of 18 the average North American child will have viewed over 200000 acts of television violence Children should not be allowed to watch violent television programs because children are easily desensitized to violence they are unable to distinguish reality and fantasy and they copy what they see on television Children are very impressionable and are easily desensitized to the violence they see on television Research has shown that young children are aroused by aggressive scenes on television and show higher levels of emotion when watching aggressive programs than when watching passive programs The arousal diminishes with repeated exposure to television and the violence no longer affects children When people are no longer aroused by violence they become less responsive to human suffering and may not be as quick to help or may not intervene during an emergency When there is a problem arousal levels are high and quick action is taken but when arousal levels do no increase then people are not as concerned about the problem and may not jump in to solve it Because society is becoming more aggressive there will be more violent sociatal situations and if people do not take swift action and help because they are desenstiaed to the violence many lives could be lost Young children have trouble distinguishing between reality and fantasy They cannot make objective evaluations cannot form logical conclusions and cannot sort out relevant data about the things they see on television
