I think that Media Violence is having a bad example on today's youth because have you seen the little kids sitting in their moms car screaming and showing violence by hitting out and thinking about zombies and killing they start to wine and complain and beg to play a game they will always be playing a killing game and talks to you about the violence game or even the movies some violence movies get your heart pumping and you jump and that has a bad effect on some of the little people and teens.

When kids lash out on their parents by hitting them, and screaming, it can be poor parenting, not necessarily media violence. Plus media violence theory doesn't fit-in with real world data. Plus, Meta-analyses of the research suggest that media violence exposure overlaps between 0 and 4 percent with aggressive behavior.

Yes it may be poor parenting but the parent need to understand that if the child plays violent video games or watches a movie then the child will start to get worse and want to hurt people not always but it is believed that kids who play or watch violence will act violent with or without a parent to guide them it really is all on the kid to stop the violence they can play the game but to much of it and they will want to play the play or walk the walk.

Parents can always tell them no, and/or take the movie/game(s) away. Most, (not if all) violent movies are rated R, and games are rated M, meaning someone 17 or 18 years old or order have to purchase them. Parents can easily avoid there kids becoming more aggressive by just not buying them, and buying movies/games that are age-appropriate for them.

Maybe but then what if they go to a friends house and they have the game or they beg a sibling to buy them the game and they get addicted and if you just take it away it will most likely make the child sad and resentful a child can't see they are changing to violence because there personalities are not completely there.

Reasons for voting decision: Neither side used sources, which really would have helped Con, who used some arguments that would have really been helped by a few links to corroborating websites. She also gets arguments, even though she skipped a round. I gave conduct for this. Spelling and grammar goes to Con. Pro used too many run-on sentences and too little punctuation.
