Yes it does set a bad example on kids, therefore, there is alot of swearing and dangerous acts which will influence younger viewers who tend to believe anything and that are very gullible.

I argue that reality television does not set a bad example for children.
As mentioned, reality TV does contain swearing and acts of violence, but the changing age and time affects this statement direly.
Along with progress in general modern day society, there has always been an ever opposing argument between the Overprotection and Over extent of protection regarding children.
One can argue for the latter of the above by pointing out the extreme progression and savvy, street smart capabilities of the modern day Technology Age child. With new technology and inventions, opens up a whole new world to anybody, even children.
So the case of whether or not reality television sets a negative example for children must be countered by the question, 'How much technological access does the child receive?'
This question is vital as it answers the query of a young child's gullibility by posing the thought of how much freedom from other aspects of their media life a child receives.
Once this question is answered it will create further paths of discussion through the topic at hand.

You're kinda putting in a way if it was the parent's fault, even if it was the parent's fault, and even if the kid's were told not to, they will still tend to do it when they are not around. You're probably thinking, the parent's can just confiscate the device that the children are using to view reality TV, but if their at a friend's house or at school, they could just use another device to view it without the parent noticing, so you can't really blame it on parent's if kid's won't listen.

This is an interesting topic. I did one similar but it was about kids playing M rated games. I will watch this but as I agree with you I do not think I could debate this with a clear conscience.
