TV breeding 'mean, distrustful' children

WATCHING lots of violence on television and playing violent video games not only makes kids more physically aggressive - it also makes them meaner and more distrustful, according to a study.

The findings add to research linking violence in the media with violent behaviour in children and adults, said David Walsh, co-author of the US-based study and head of the National Institute on Media and the Family.

The report found a correlation between exposure to high levels of TV or video game violence and "relational aggression" - behaviour including name-calling, threats and rumour-mongering.

In addition these same children were more likely to view others with the most suspicion, the study said.

"Long before kids throw a punch or pick up a weapon, they're probably treating kids in a relationally aggressive way," Mr Walsh said.

"This is the kind of thing that becomes the breeding ground for more overtly violent behaviour as these kids get older."

The youngsters filled out surveys of their TV viewing and video game habits, and were evaluated by their own teachers and peers in terms of how well they got along with others.

They also took a test to rate their levels of trust and suspicion. Children rated the most ill-behaved reported more exposure to media violence.

haha what complete bollox. of course it raises your aggresion levels because computer games in general get you excited and agitated. but then so did playing games like cops and robbers a s a kid. and they were using guns you could actually touch. how many scapegoats do parents want before they start accepting the fact that it's their fault they brought up a sociopathic killer.

maybe kids who watch more TV are more sociopathic because there is a correlation between watching more TV and getting less attention from parents? hmmmmmm??? stupid tv bashers.

Two big problems with this "study":

1. They lumped together video games and television, which are two entirely different forms of entertainment. One is very passive and requires you to switch off your brain. The other is very active and requires you to observe and strategize. Apples and oranges.

2. It relied on self-reporting, which is a notoriously unscientific way to do things.

From personal observation, I'd have to agree that watching a lot of TV *does* make kids more aggressive, suspicious, distrustful, and manipulative - since it makes adults the same way. I watch *very* little TV (maybe an hour a month; who needs it when you have a PC?) and can definately tell the difference between watchers and readers - the watchers think the whole world is like Survivor, the readers are a lot more down to earth.

Funny thing that I've noticed about video games, even the violent ones, is that they seem to make people LESS aggressive and more thoughtful. Part of it, I think, is that video games teach you a lot about discretion, and part of that is that you learn that winning is the boring part. It's playing that kicks ass. Now go frag those lam0r campers!

Maybe the kids were already more aggressive to begin with, therefore they choose to watch more aggressive Tv and do more aggressive things.

Someone needs to do a report on how people who do studies make up results more often than people who don't do reports.

Hmmm...lets see, how about if we get involved with what our children are doing and talk to them about things so they understand that being violent is wrong...oh wait, that would require you to get off your ass. So lets just blame the industry that puts out the stuff we use to babysit our children cause we're to lazy...good call.

I am not parking my child in front of a tv to babysit. I will let him/her watch tv, with supervision and explanation where needed. Same with Vid games. When they are old enough to understand I will give them more freedom on what they do.

long halter dresses correct tools. strapless bridesmaid dress They every use screws inside the links for simpler changing. I do suggest even so having a top quality screw driver which is the proper size dresses cheap , else you may run into trouble. The screws are in tight (for a superb reason), and are of the very same top quality steel as the rest of the watch. An intriguing feature of the Tridente is that it provides a removable bracelet extension. Both watches have a bracelet extension (utilized to create the watch fit over a diving suit), but the extension may be removed on the Tridente in the event you don't strategy on utilizing it. This can be a nice choice to have (as I've admittedly in no way utilized the diving extension). A minor problem with the Tridente that I own because of the reality that I bought it new, cheap prom dresses is that the clasp on the bracelet is incredibly tight closing until you wear it in a bit. This is actually a recognized problem amongst watches that I've experienced with other brands including Tag Heuer. It fundamentally means that taking off your watch demands some prying power whenever you initial get it. Not a major deal, however it amuses me that like a automobile wholesale wedding dresses , you should "break in" a brand new watch.Both the Nettuno three and Tridente are versatile diving watches, but the Tridente can take you a lot more locations, and survive. The Nettuno three has the regular 300 meter (about 660 feet) water resistance of a "typical diving watch, evening wedding dress " although the Tridente is rated to go 1000 meters (about 3300 feet) below the surface.
