The effects of television violence on children and adolescents have been the subject of debate since the advent of television and have involved a complex interplay of communication, policies, politics, research, commercial interest, and public advocacy.
Numerous studies have been conducted on the effects of television violence on young viewers. Findings have shown that children watching a lot of aggressive programs are more likely to be aggressive during play, and will accept force as a solution to the problem, and likely to become a victim of violence.
We can take responsibility for our role in perpetuating television violence. Writers, directors, producers, and executives can all work hand-in-hand to change how violence is portrayed on television. Advertisers can request and support non-violent programs that also get good ratings.
Lastly, parents also have a vital role to play by taking charge of their televisions and monitor what their families watch.
