Media Violence does absolutely have a negative effect on Today's youth. Research on violent television and films, video games, and music reveals unequivocal evidence that media violence increases the likelihood of aggressive and violent behavior
in both immediate and long-term contexts in youth.
Media violence doesnt affect todays youth. The media just basically recreates it, it doesnt actually happen. If someone sees a violent action take place on tv or on a video game they probably won't copy it, they will just watch it instead. As most kids grow up they learn to control thier anger and aggression even if they do watch violent tv and play violent video games. Kids can be influenced by other violent things in the world instead of media such as other people in real life. Or they could even be influence by their parents in some situations.
Okay, but kids ageing from 3-8 will watch these violent tv shows or movies and video games so young that if they do see in real life or from their parents they could believe what they've viewed is real and may happen to them and their family, creating intensified fear and anxiety. Making this kid grow up violently and misunderstood from the real world because of something they saw when they was a child.
But most kids don't get enough attention from their parents. Their parents don't give they the right parenting that they need. And this leads to violence because they think they can get whatever they want in life. But when they don't get what they want they can respond in anger and this can cause problems as they grow up. This would also be known as violence, so in conclusion violence isn't always caused by tv and media. It can be caused by parents and also other people.
