Everyone deals with stress and frustrations differently. However when action is taken upon the frustrations and stress, and the action is taken out in anger and aggression. The results may be very harmful to both the aggressor and the person being aggressed against, mentally, emotionally, and even physically. Young children are more likely to confuse fantasy violent with real world violence, and without a framework for ethical decision making, they may mimic the actions they see in violent video games. Playing violent video games increases aggressive behavior and arousal.
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.
What impact does violence have and which view do people believe more? Which point of view or study are people relating to is it The American Psychological Association, Diane Swanbrow, Gerard Jones or Stephan King’s view, not saying any one is better than the other? First, The American Psychological Association (APA) has conducted studies that have determined that children may become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others, they become more fearful of the world, and may become more likely to behave in aggressive or harmful ways toward others (161). The APA suggests that parents should view their child’s show before allowing them watch it. By limiting the amount of time children watch television it is less aggression they may be viewing.
I think it is clear that young people are not deterred from bad behavior by just the fear of punishment. Kids know then a person's “bark is bigger than their bite.” At the same time,if a young person sees someone else get punished for problem behavior, this might deter them by proxy. The idea of general deterrence is that just one punishment is enough todeter other people if the situation is taken care of quickly enough. General deterrencerelies on the idea that, if young people believe that society both intends to punish criminalacts and that they are able to, they will be deterred from committing a crime by thesefactors and this awareness. One example of this is that more police officers can go onto the police force, so that the young person sees them everywhere and believes that they mightcatch them.
Sometimes people feel the defendant has too many rights and has more benefits, which could help them get away with criminal activity. All these points are valid, but they are forgetting about the rights of people and what they stand for. I would think people would want defendants to be punished fairly and not have an opening, where they could possible get their case dropped because of something illegal done on the prosecution or law enforcement
Even though there are advisories and warning before shows sometimes it has to do with addictiveness. When a person watches a T.V show it can stagnate in their memory very quickly. Mostly ending up learning far more than needed for the age. It has a negative influence on any age group for this matter. Censorship certainly helps those who might think it is inappropriate to display information.
Whether or not violent video games and films influence someone’s levels of violence is a much debated topic, some people believe that it does where as others believe that it doesn’t. There has been much research into the topic by psychologists such as Craig Anderson, who wanted to find out what effects violent video games and films have on children. From results of studies like his and many others we have been able to get a clearer view and opinion on whether or not it does affect these things. Craig Anderson, stated that “young men who are habitually aggressive may be especially vulnerable to the aggression-enhancing effects of repeated exposure to violent games," and also said “that even a brief exposure to violent video games can temporarily increase aggressive behaviour in all types of participants.” He completed a study which involved 227 college students who reported their aggressive behaviour in the past. They also gave information on their game playing habits in their past.
It is necessary to take a closer look at whether or not violence in the media really is responsible for this development and then to examine what censorship may entail before taking such a far-reaching decision. Many concerned people, ranging from worried parents through to reputable psychologists, deplore the ever-present nature of violence in the media, claiming that this is the reason why people are increasingly prepared to commit violent acts. They argue that violence is being propagated as normal or even entertaining. Violence is in the newspapers, on the news, in film plots and in cartoons. Violence is a source of laughter in children's programs; films present it as staple fare; it is served as pseudo-information in sensation-hungry newspapers and on reality TV; and it is even glorified by some musicians in their lyrics and performances.
Games about war and games about crime life, even games about fantasy violence are all over the market. It is thought that Children are affected the most by the violence they are exposed to. I tend to agree that violent media affects children the most. Children are less likely to separate right from wrong like most adults can. It is easy for me to see something on TV and know that it wouldn’t be right to replicate it.
Many people argue that censorship within the media is necessary to protect vulnerable people or sensitive information. Other people say that we have a right as human’s to have freedom of speech and many people argue that censorship deprives us of this right. Media censorship may be seen as positive as it can protect young eyes from seeing pornography online, violence in games or on the television and the varying ways that drugs
