Children are prevented from seeing truly violent and unsuitable
content by the movie rating systems that keep children out of many films. Cable
television providers also allow parents to lock children out of certain kinds
of programming. These safeguards protect young children from violent and ugly
images. The problem is that rebellious teens sometimes find the prohibitions
enticing. A better approach might be to teach teens that violence is actually bad
for the people who watch it and that performing in unsuitable scenes can actually
damage the lives of people who are induced to do it.
There's no way we could possibly ban children from viewing shows that contain violence and adult content. Even child filters don't work on cable boxes, so parents should simply take other measures to prevent their children from viewing such content. Then again, some children are mature enough to view this content.
I do not think that shows containing violence and other adult content should be banned from viewing by children. I am not sure how that would work anyway without banning the shows from everyone. However, I think it is up to a child's parents to regulate what they can and cannot watch.
Children are not mature enough to watch programs with adult content. Television networks should broadcast warning to parents about the content of television shows before they are played. Responsible parents should not let their young children watch inappropriate programs. Otherwise, kids could grow up being violent or with other mental problems.
We shouldn't ban violent media from the eyes of children because it's impossible to enforce such a ban. Rather parents should actually take some responsibility for once and parent their children properly so that they know not to watch these shows. Too many absentee parents allow their children to watch whatever they want.
