These days, we are seeing an increasing amount of violence on television, and this is having a negative impact on children's behaviour. Do you agree or disagree

Violent
content
in the form of video games, media channels, and
television
dramas has seen a rapid increase over the
last
few years.
This
form of
content
, when exposed to children, could have negative consequences on their personality and
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
. Some children might be more prone to the negative effects of
violence
on
television
than others might, but I do not agree that all children would demonstrate violent
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
due to exposure
toof
in the direction of
to
too
tough
brutal
content
on
television
. Studies have shown that children, particularly in their early years, absorb and retain a lot of information from the
television
. The famous
television
serial, ‘The
Seseame
Suggestion
Sesame
Street’ has proved to influence the
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
and personalities of many children across the world.
In addition
, children need reinforcement from their surroundings for their
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
to shape.
For example
, a child living in Ghana would most probably demonstrate violent
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
if he/she watches violent
content
on the
television
and observes
violence
in his village when he goes out and witnesses gunshots and blood from the wounded regardless of
content
displayed on TV.
Hence
, I believe blood and gore on
television
, by itself, does not necessarily alter children’s
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
. Children in many countries play violent
videos
Suggestion
video
games
such
as ‘GrandtheftGrand theft Auto’ or ‘Call of Duty’ but that does not result in them expressing violent
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
.
This
is because they know it is just a game and consequences of
violence
in a game and in a real world are very different.
On the contrary
, children in many villages in Pakistan domestically abuse and beat their sisters even though they do not have any
television
sets or exposure to violent
content
.
Therefore
, violent
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
is not influenced by violent
content
on the
television
only; there are many other factors that affect
such
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
. In conclusion, I would like to say that I do not agree with the statement that violent
content
on the
television
negatively affects children’s
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
, as there isn’t enough scientific evidence to back up
this
hypothesis.
However
, it is better to limit exposure to
violence
to children as other societal factors could reinforce violent
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
in them.
