I completely agree with the fact that
violence on television has a direct
impact on children’s behaviour. Lot of
researches have been conducted on
this subject and time and again it has
been revealed that exposure to
violence not only in television but also
in video games, cell phones, and
internet increases the susceptibility of
the child towards violent behaviour.

Randomized experiments conducted
on children by exposing them to
violence in televisions and video
games had shocking revealing. It
suggested that there was the
likelihood of child’s behaviour
becoming aggressive in the short run.
Many psychological experts and
neuroscientists have given the
underlying reasons for the same. They
explain that children’s exposure to
violent electronic media including
violent games leads to long-term
increases in their risk for behaving
aggressively and violently. These
long-term effects are a consequence
of the powerful observational learning
and desensitization processes that
occur automatically in the human
child.

These acts of violence shown on
television have long lasting effects on
children as they find it very thrilling
and different from their regular life.
They like to ponder on these scripts
and start connecting to the acts in
their real lives. However, if the same is
not monitored, it can also change the
permanent behaviour of the child.
Sometimes, this threat is large enough
to be treated as public health threat.

Hence, it is very important that parents
monitor what their kids are watching
on television and how they are
spending their free time. This is
because children learn from both
experience and social learning or role
modelling. As a result, when children
watch violent acts, it is difficult from
them to decipher which ones are real
and to what an extent. This is where
the parental or adult guidance can
come to their help and prevent them
from getting misguided. It is sadistic to
note that even cartoon channels show
lot of violence these days.

Also, medical science says that if
violence is viewed for a long time,
there are chemical changes which take
place in the brain which are very
similar to those that happen post
traumatic stress disorder. Now, since
the brains of young children are still
developing, this can impact them
badly.

Hence, it is very important that
children get good guidance in choosing
which television programs to watch
and which video games to play. They
should be encouraged to watch the
inspirational or the humorous part of
television. Developing interest in
knowledge imparting channels like
Discovery channel, History channel
can be wonderful for their
development.
