    The Effects of Television Violence on Children 1.0 INTRODUCTION The effects of violence shown on television towards children may vary depending on the child's age group, how much television they watch each day and their reactions to what they have been watching. What children see, they tend to imitate. And what they see on both broadcast and cable television is violence, real and stimulated (Arnow, 1995: 12). There is a strong correlation between the viewing of violent images and aggressive beha...

  • Television Violence And Its Effects On Viewers
    3,949 words
    Television violence and its effects on viewers has been a controversial issue for many years. Some viewers believe that there is an increasingly large amount of violence on television and this widespread public concern has 'led to calls for stricter controls on the depiction of violence in programmes' (Gunter and McAleer 1990: 92). Exactly how much violence is there on television though? Many cultivation theorists have studied this, acquiring data in the form of content analysis. They agree on a...

    2,384 words
    Political Involvement Concerning Violence in Television Looking back in time, it is evident man has mastered his resources in an effort to increase his technology. This technology has had a measurable effect on society. To a certain extent, we have embraced, as well as feared, the growth of this technology. As far back as 390 BCE when Plato warned about the danger of storytelling (Cooke L 19), to the 1930's and 1940's when "studies warned of the harmful effects radio was having on children's abi...
  • External And Internal Violence
    1,555 words
    Specific time periods, such as World War II, and the Post-Civil War era bring to mind images of hate, death, and violence. Not solely external violence or violence that is carried out, such as murders, war, or blatant displays of violence such as those in Ellison's Battle Royal, but internal violence as well. Internal violence is more about the mind, a violence of emotion, though internal violence is closely linked to external violence. They are linked not only because external violence causes i...
  • Impact Of Television Violence On Youth Behavior
    2,950 words
    I came up with a problem that concerns many parents. It seems as though violence plays a role in the lives of many people. Even innocent children are affected by the negative things that go on in the huge world we live in. Television violence is often overlooked because of its ability to retain children's attention. Countless mothers and fathers put their children in front of the television so they can have time to themselves. As a result, the kids are subjected to unnecessary media violence. I ...
  • Effects Of Television Violence
    371 words
    Television is at the heart of American culture: its power and influence are unparalleled. Approximately two-thirds of Americans report that they get most of their information about the world from TV. Though influential, this phenomenon is relatively new. In 1956, only 4.6 million homes in the United States had television sets and no programming was available during many hours every day. By 1990, there were 92.1 million homes with TVs and the average viewer could select from approximately 30 chan...
  • Television Causes Violence In Children
    878 words
    Television has changed over time. It used to be a wholesome activity for the family to sit in front of the tube together. It was a new technology that brought the outside world into the living room. Now TV, as it has so lovingly been dubbed, has become a source of corruption for the nation's children. As the world becomes more and more violent the sanctity of the home becomes occupied with the extremities of violence. Television and other media have caused unnecessary violence and effected the c...
  • Variables Between Television Violence And Aggressive Behavior
    873 words
    This essay is based on the effects of television violence on children. More specifically, it deals with the relationship found between television violence and aggression found in young children. I chose this topic because I found it interesting to learn that many studies have found a connection between television viewing and the behavior of people, especially children. The first study found is called "Television Violence and Children's Aggression", by Wendy Josephson. Josephson begins her study ...
  • Violence On Television And Aggressive Behavior
    591 words
    There is still continuing disagreement and controversy on television violence and its potential effect on small children. Certain studies have frequently shown that television can in fact cause aggression and violent behavior, while networks such as ABC (the American Broadcasting Company) are confident and continue to argue that there are no scientific findings to show a link between television violence and unusually violent behavior in children. In either case, we have to wonder if we really ne...
  • Effects Of Television Violence
    1,999 words
    To find a realistic and logical answer to this question I felt it important to begin at the beginning. I wanted to know if this is a legitimate problem, or if this was another politically correct way of blaming television for a societal problem. So, on this journey I began with the introduction of television to the public. The official starting date for television in the United States was in 1939, at the World's Fair. At the time of the debut, there were mixed reactions to television because it ...
