In U.S. ,basically every family has a TV. Meanwhile,fifty-two percent of children have television in their bedrooms.
Compare the Time
almost 1,500 hours of TV a year
TV must have a big impact. about 900 hours in school each year
Number of violence on TV
——Cartoons have more acts of violence than shows for adults. ——Cartoons have an average of thirty-two violent acts per hour. By the time a child is twelve,he or she will have seen about 100,000 acts of violence.
Immediate effects of TV violence
Children copy the violence they see on TV.
So the link here between what kids see and what they do seems quite strong.
Long-term effects of TV violence
Children who watched a lot of violent TV at eight were more violent at eighteen.
That watching violent TV has long-term impact on these kids.
