Do kids emulate what they see on violent films?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 07 Apr 2008

This is a topic of hot debate but scanning some websites on this shows that many psychologists believe that a percentage of children and even some adults act on what they see on screen.

Those who are influenced heavily by what they see on screen sometimes seem unable to distinguish between fact and fiction as readily as most people's brains do.

Many argue that even if just a few are influenced by what they see on TV and glamourised violence then that's enough for it not to be on our screens whilst others talk of liberties to see and do what we want and then decide accordingly.
