Pro

I am speaking for the motion. Media does have many bad effects on children this is because now-a-days children are more attached to the media then the real people in life.
Adam2

Con

No, not necessarily. Violence in the media has a part in affecting a child, but the bigger picture is if the child has a healthy raising. If the parents that raise the kid have good morals, you can bet that that kid won't ever want to engage in violence, or extortion or any of those criminal activities. Media can be persusive, but a kid with good moral upbringing and good parents will not engage in such things.

Con

As I said it has more to do with upbringing than what is shown. If the child was raised in an environment where crime is the culture, then a violent image might encourage them to resort. But that has to do with upbringing. Violence can affect, but it takes a parent's upbringing.

As I've said
To edit violence on television, except for public airwaves, which are available to everyone. But to censor violent content and all would be censorship. Violence in the media doesn't cause violence but rather upbringing does. Studies have proven this.

Does violence in media *affect* the children.

Effect is a noun, affect is a verb

An impossible argument to prove, however I believe this to be an A Priori case that simply says violence will always be romanticised and has always been a huge part of media for centuries. I believe no, violence on TV is not warping the minds of our young, there are more shows about cookery, but do my peers drop their adidas for aprons? No.
