But we are talking about children. In their ages they don't have to be realistic or something else. But by watching horrors i don't think that they will become realistic. On the contrary i think they will be afraid of everything.And in the future it can be a big problem.

But what do you think about video games? As we can see nowadays many games contain fights, blood, death and murder. Is all that teach little child to be realistic? On the contrary they remember this, and in the future can be very cruel and malicious.

Then we can't miss the fact that watching too much Tv, sitting a lot of hours in front of the computer is really danger and bad for growing organism. For example for eyes, for body as a whole. It is the time when little child have to play with friends, read the kind books and watch only instructive films.

Video games and films not real life at all. Or for example if we take some heroes of the game. They look not very beautiful, they mostly like a monsters. And all this information postponing in a children head, which can have bad influence on them.

I don't say that children don't have to play video games and watch Tv at all. Yes, i agree that playing games helps to develop a motility. But my point is that little children don't have to watch films and play video games which contain scenes with violence.

children should close their eyes when they see cruel scenes)

If do this, children will watch films with closed eyes)

I agree with you at this point. Yes, children start to think, they create their strategy. But there are a lot of other games which forces you to think, and which don't contain monsters, blood and fights.

My opinion is that little children have to watch Tv and play video games, but they shouldn't contain violence. And of course children have to know limit, because they shouldn't watch Tv or play video games all day.

Violence in the media is a problem in our society today. Effect of violence can be severe and widespread. From my point of view humans have always been amazed by violence, but it was not until this century that it invaded the home on television screens, computers and took a hand in raising the young. The people that are exposed to media violence are mostly children. Mass media violence affects badly on young generation.

I’d like to say that media today is a part of the children’ culture. In my opinion, media is an integral part of child environment and violence in media sometimes is the main thing in aggressive behavioral development of children. Some serious actions should be taken by the policy makers to decrease the media violence or to limit it. There is “culture of violence in media” already and we must do something to stop it.

I stand for banning violence because I think that such type of cruel video games or TV shows provides violence in people's everyday life. It shows that violent actions are normal and gives absolute freedom of actions to everyone. So, it make people think that everything is allowed to do. But actually people must think about the things they're going to do much more. So, in general I want to say that violence must be under control, especially on TV, internet or video games because these are the most available and popular ways of getting information, communicating or entertaining for people

Yes, they should know what is a real life. But you see firstly children should learn to distinguish where is good and where is bad. Also parents should explain that violence only for plot of the film. Otherwise children will think that everywhere only violence: shooting,murders...!

However they are children, and i think they don't need to see all those scenes. Mostly children have very weak psyche. In the childhood person don't need to know about violence. Little children have to enjoy their lives, but don't seat and see all violence on Tv and video games.

And i want to add that our live doesn't consist only form violence. Violence not our live, it is only small aspect of it.

You know what influences a child even more than seeing a cat chase a mouse, PARENTS. The problem isn't that these kinds of media exist, it's that parents aren't raising their kids, they expect someone else to do it, more and more. Have you ever thought that maybe instead of making an unsupportable and unenforceable law, you could just, I don't know, maybe sit down down with your kids, explaining to them that there is a difference between the world where you can walk off being impaled and the one where it takes days to recover from a papercut. But that's just crazy talk, it's not like children are actually capable of learning anything, or seeing an adult, or just you know, telling the difference between reality and a cartoon.

I think that our society mind must be preserved from violence on TV,in films and in video games because it is firstly damage psychology of children and learned them to be bad and cruel.Our young growing generation will spoiled by violence on mass media. We must banned and avoid to children to see programs with violence etc. Surely,violence on TV not so interesting and beautiful show to us. Especially in some cultures (as in my country Kazakhstan) very old generation is not like look such programs about murders,porno,crime on TV, young people in room always are shy to transfer channels to channels with violence in presenting native old people as grandmother and grandfather,even usually my parents!

I am totally agree that violence on TV, in films and video games should be banned because children’s mind is not so developed as humans and can accept anything not looking at how bad or good it is. If government bands violence on TV and video games our next generation will be healthier.

Do you know how often a little kid says "NO!"? Especially when they have brothers...

Kids know what to accept and what not to, and violence on most forms of media are clearly not acceptable to them due parenting and social factors. IF a child hits another at school, they get reprimanded and they learn more from such interaction than the much more impersonal TV. This doesn't mean that they can't enjoy the fantasy world they are presented, children are given too little credit. They are smarter than they appear.

I agree that violent video games should be band because they are scary and its what a bunch of young teens think about. Did you know that 90% of kids under the age of 17 have played an "M" rated video game?!?! We should teach our kids about the violence of these games!

i agree with the statement that there are too much violence on Tv, video games and films. As we noticed today we can see scenes with violence everywhere. And my opinion is that we shouldn't allow children to watch bad films and play video games.

we shouldn't allow children to watch bad films and play video games.

Why? What harm do they do? The gaming community is made up of MILLIONS of people, and we aren't exactly the most aggressive people in the world? It has also been proven that playing games improves peoples' reaction times. Furthermore; it is human nature to be violent - and playing video games is an excellent way to channel anger and frustration; rather than taking it out in real life.

Playing violent video games, and watching movies hasn't been proven to do anything. It is just stupid, over-protective, hypocritical parents that think these things are wrong. The majority of parents that oppose these forms of entertainment more than likely watched the same movies and played the same games when they were younger.

So with all due respect; stick that in your pipe and smoke it :)

In TV, I guess it is much better because they are filtered unlike the video games that they are not monitored as the TV programs do. http://www.debbieirwin.com/

People kill people because they have seen how "easy" is it on TV and films. I have seen behaviors change from happy and fun to angry and mean after watching violence on TV. The trite sayings implies that there is no influence in people - only their instinct.

Perhaps you would like to explain the occurrence of killing before the invention of film and television?

Okay, clearly you are a misanthrope, because when you actually look at murder cases, you see that television never comes up as a motive. You know what does, money, harassment and mental illness. You assume that human beings only have the ability to copy what they have seen, but then how did we come up with fire, the steam engine, electricity.

Are you an idiot? Not all killers watch TV. Some killers prefer books! But it doesn't matter because the media is not responsible for what people do! The people are!

I have seen behaviors change from happy and fun to angry and mean after watching violence on TV.

Coincidentally, I have seen the same thing happen after somebody has read a specific book. We should totally burn books then, shouldn't we?

I agree with your statement that some action scenes, playing action video games too much leads to spoiled behavior and spoiled mind. But violence on TV shows really life When children watch only good films and cartoons they can’t imagine that our life is full of violence, and by watching action films they know that our life is full of violence. We see different peoples, who have watched violence on TV very often, and who haven’t watched. Those people who have watched horror, thrillers in the childhood, they can be aggressive very often, but they are realists. Other people, who haven’t ever watched horrors, and always watched cartoons, they are always optimistic, but they don’t think like realistic people. Also,playing action games develops critical thinking, especially when they play strategic game like DOTA. Youngsters think critically and improve their critical thinking. While playing DOTA, people have to think about their strategy having to create an army and conquer other realms. By doing these things, youngsters improve their critical thinking.

I agree that there is violence on TV. And children see it. But you see that every flm, every video game had a restriction in age. And if children see some violence on TV or video games it doesn't mean that violence should be banned, it mean that parents should carefully look after there children, after what they see and what they do!

But there is no evidence for that. Conversely, those people who haven't ever watched action films in the childhood, they become very timid. For example, in our society of young people, most of people think that people who don't watch action are very strange.

Of course sitting in front of computer screen for a long time is very dangerous for health, especially for eyes. But I don't say that in the childhood children have to sit in front of computer so often. I'm saying that we should allow children to watch action films and play video games. At first, children can see real life and get something useful experience from some films. Secondly, playing action video games develops critical thinking, especially when they play strategic game like DOTA.

if consider the game DOTA, it is full of aweful monsters, but while playing DOTA, people have to think about their strategy having to create an army and conquer other realms. By doing these things, youngsters improve their critical thinking.

And these mosters don't look like alive. Every child realize that these heroes, characters are like in cartoons. Every child know that they don't alive,. We can say, children create thamselves in the game. They create powerful hero, suggestive of fear.

There should exist upon this land no form of Censorship or other infringement on the part of the Government on the People of these few States with regards to violence, obscenity, Blasphemy, racism, and all other forms of Speech and Expression.

In other words, I am 100% opposed to the very notion of censoring absolutely anything. If parents don't want their kids watching such shows, then they should exert more power upon their children and their TV watching habits. It is NOT the duty of the government to tell us - especially those of us who have no problem with violence - what we may or mayn't watch!

look I know this has been discussed constantly for years, and that i've made this exact same point already, but there is simply no evidence of the connection you seem to think is self-evident. In fact, from experience, I can tell you that these games may actually lower violent tendencies. Back in Kindergarten I would attack someone new every other day, then I started playing video games and now gone a full 6 months without thinking about actually murdering someone.

Also, without violence films are not interesting. The best movies are full of violence. For example, such films like “Godfather”( Francis Ford Coppola, 1972), “A Beautiful mind”)Ron Howard, 2011), “Matrix”( Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski, 1999), “Lord of the rings”( Peter Jackson, 2001) are full of violence, but these films are the best ones and these films got Oscar. If consider “A beautiful mind”, it is the best movie and it has a very deep meaning, but this film is full of violence. Also, some films show us our history, but they are full of violence again.

The violence on TV and in the films and in video games is just fantasy. Children should be explained that the violence that they see is wrong and should never be re-enacted in real life.
