War had a major impact on war because children had to deal with the loss their parents or family members. Children had to adapt to their new life very quickly and children weren't use to it. Everything around a child's eye was about war, and they never really a break from it. It was like a world full of nothing but war. War is difficult to handle with an adult, but with a child it is so much worse. Education was hard and many children became uneducated very quickly. How would you feel if your comfort around you was just ripped from you. I know I would not like it. The environment influences a child's behavior and if it is surrounded it death and killing people, that is what they are going to do. Nothing says that every child in the war was absolutely fine. War definitely had a major affect on the lifestyle, happiness and comfort of a child. It was up to the parent to protect them, but unfortunatly they were participating, fighting for their country in war. They never had the chance to ask their child if they were okay or if they were happy. They barely got to speak to them.

A child is not exposed to information pertaining to war like most would think. My children were oblivious to the US being at war until I spoke with them about it on 9/11, and that was only because I was watching the discovery special on the twin towers. They may know we are at war, but the full effects of war are not impacted upon a child as much as one may think.

War might not be directly affecting children, war is still apart of the life of a child. Even if they don't know about it, war is directly around their eyes and nothing will ever happen to make them stop it. War is still happening in the world, and nothing will ever change it until war has gone forever. There needs to be peace in the world. Children's toys could influence violence as for guns etc. there will still be guns in the world, wars might not be advertised daily, they are still advertised and guns are still sold, whether it be plastic or real. Parents can have a choice whether or not their child knows about war more than others and they are parents who don't want their children learning about war, but the majority of children know about war. Children born in the time of war were directly affected and nothing can happen to change the fact that war had affected children. Physiological and physical damage has happened on children, whether it be from being at war or having war around their eyes. Your argument is invalid.

I could state more facts but you have failed to adhere to basic debating structure. I see no additional facts backing your initial statement?! Pretend Weapons a child plays with has nothing to do with war. Violence... Yes, but not war.

So, you're looking to have a debate with somebody who will say that war is okay for kids? That's not really leaving your opponent with much rational ground to defend, now is it?
