TV Violence and the Future of Our Children In recent years the news has seemed to mimic violence that appears in television and in movies Several incidents support the majority of peoples assumption that TV violence effects a childs behavior in many ways A childs judgment is hurt badly by viewing TV violence which can have some serious long-term effects First of all when children see characters on TV or in movies triumph by using physical force they begin to see violence as an acceptable way of resolving conflicts As a result children use physical or verbal abuse toward others on the playground or at school Some parents often worry that their children will not fit in with their friends if they do not watch popular childrens television programs The same 20-year research tell us that children who watch more violent television are actually rated more poorly by their peers Also according to Dr Jeanne Beckman children who spend more time watching violent TV programming are rated more poorly by their teachers their peers have few problem-solving skills and are more likely to get into trouble with the law as teenagers and young adults Take for instance the young boy who opened fire at his school in Pearl Mississippi The movie the Basketball Diaries had the most effect on this boy Children who view too much media violence may have more difficulty getting along with others If children do not see acts of kindness between other children and adults they are less likely to be kind or resolve their conflicts peacefully This makes other children less eager to play with them Along with verbal abuse violent TV programs do not teach good language skills Young children tend to repeat things they hear as they begin to develop their own vocabularies Violent movies and TV programs show children a very limited way to talk about their problems -- and to solve them Children
