Children have their own needs and interests. Stainton Rogers identified two images of children in the 20th century, the sinful and wicked child, whose behaviour is anti-social and, therefore, it should be controlled and disciplined and the innocent child, who should be protected from the violence of the adult world. This 'welfare view' was supported by many social policies, such as the Children Act of 1989, where court is obliged to make decisions based on interests and benefits of children. However, nowadays the position of children is changing as well. Neil Postman suggests that the childhood is disappearing because today children are not protected from the adult world and this is mostly because of mass media, which destroys the boundaries between childhood and adulthood.
Therefore In this essay I intend to put across both side of the arguments and then conclude with my own personnel opinion. Some people are against smacking children because the research evidence shown is overwhelming; smacking children is an ineffective way to manage children's behavior and damages their development. We have laws that protect adults from being assaulted by other adults however many people still believe that smacking children is a legal form of discipline. Is this therefore not ironic? As an adult can be protected by violence but a child does not have the same right.

Spanking and Aggression in Young Children Can spanking really lead to aggressive behavior in young children? In my opinion, it can and usually does. Have you ever gotten a spanking from a parent or adult, but then were told “hitting and slapping are not okay,” by that same adult? You probably felt confused or angry and asked them, “why is it ok for you to slap me, but it’s not okay for me to slap you?” This is one of a few reasons why I do not believe spanking is an effective form of punishment and can lead to aggressive behavior in children. It can cause confusion, which can then lead to stress, which can then result in aggressive behavior from the child.

I believe king did not mention this to state he is against Disney movies, I think it was just to defend his idea that most horror themes and Disney movies are alike in many ways. I say most because he also does state that children need not to be watching the Texas Chain Saw Massacre because children still do not differentiate reality with fiction. Upon understanding this point in his text, I could then clearly identify that is exactly why children are the perfect audience. They cannot effectively differentiate fantasy and reality. Adults will get scared temporarily, but then will get over that feeling.

It seems as if the people making the illegal act of pedophilia “virtual” are not taking all of the dangers and aspects into consideration because of the root to all evil, money. But then what about the actual children? Continuing virtual child pornography seems to down play the severity of the ethical morals and is an immoral act on many possible levels. As adults, the rights of children are always supposed to be in our best interest.

Johnson would not see anything valuable in the exposure of children to advertising because he would e completely against it. This is because it manipulates children.

Violent video games can lead to an increase aggressive behavior in children if parents do not make it clear that the behavior exhibited in these games is inappropriate. Children and adolescents need to be made to understand that the way people act in these games is not reality. Parents need to monitor the content of games their children are playing, as well as the amount of time spent playing them. Aggression is defined by the (American Psychological Association, 2012) as “behavior that causes psychological or physical harm to another individual.” This means that not all aggressive behavior is physical; it can also include insulting, obnoxious, and rude behavior.
