Television and children’s values

Children who watch violent television shows may come to feel that violence is acceptable behavior.
Marvin O. Kolb, M.D. moderated a special presentation on children and television violence at the 60th Annual meeting of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
He reports that television watching may have long-lasting and dramatic impacts on the behavior of children. Children see so much violence that they come to consider it normal behavior and an acceptable way for them to behave. (Medical Tribune 32(23)11, November 14, 1991) Copyright 1991 Phylis Austin
