Video games are not the source of violence but they are consistently blamed; parents need to make sure that their own children are not exposed to media hype that would be considered as violent or damaging to their own kids. The media truly believes they are the scapegoat for anything that goes wrong with today’s society. Today’s parents are naïve and ignorant to the fact that they do not know how to regulate the things their children watch and they cannot control their own kids behavior so they immediately point the blame on someone else. They need to teach their children good morals and show them how playing with guns can change their lives forever. People who own guns need to keep them put away and out of the reach of children.
To solve this problem the developers usually release two versions of the same movie. A rated one for more mature and young audiences and an unrated one, which usually consists of vulgarity every few seconds. ! The consequences of censorship can be devastating to some people but not all. Some negatives of this are that it works against creativity, and it may intrude the privacy of some people.
In order to persuade them, he takes advantage of leading question to guide his audience to his way of thinking. “Did the sensibilities created by the modern, video kill games play a role in the Littleton massacre?”(44) The question assumes that the audience will believe such aggression associated with the simulated violence. By means of sentence words “Yes” and “No”, he makes a point of bringing up the rational arguments to his audience. It illustrates that “there isn't any direct connection between most murderous games and most murders,” but “responsibility for protecting children from dangerous games lies with their parents, many of whom like to blame the entertainment industry for their own failings.”(44) The use of “Yes” and “No” aims to deepen the audience understanding of the truth that “We are now a society in which the chief form of play for millions of youngsters is making large numbers of people die.”(44) With appropriate language and clear articulation, it provides an account of his ethics that the audience will give the argument as much
He states that it is actually ironic that parents let children watch these G-rated movies when they are “minefields of terror,” as he quotes. Why is it that children are allowed to watch these movies, yet not allowed a horror movie? Perhaps it is because of the animation and some of the historical prestige of Disney after all. I am not one to judge Disney movies, in my opinion I enjoy some of them, but honestly there is a fine line of subliminal messaging involved. 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.
Some people were against the idea of abstinence because they said this would put their kids at risk by “providing a fear-based program that gave children incomplete, inaccurate, biased an sectarian information”. A women from Planned Parenthood referred to it as a “trick” to the students (517). Limbaugh disapproves of this opinion, and says it is “absurd” since he believes that this approach is honest and provides student with information about health endangerment. Students will learn about the truth of a sexually active
That however has been proven untrue. Some parents are simply looking for reasons to medicate their children so that they do not have to parent them. This is when it becomes increasingly important to make sure that they child in question fits the criteria for what is needed for an AD/HD diagnosis. Contrary to what many believe poor parenting is not a cause of AD/HD. In addition to that playing video games, too much sugar, fast past lifestyle and lack of self control are also invalid causes of AD/HD.
Mandatory Vaccinations-by cnhuff “Does Jane know that she is endangering the population to not getting little Joe his vaccinations done?” This question could famously exist in many communities after parents find out that selected parents do not follow the doctor’s orders when it comes to vaccinations. This stigma may stand as the reason that vaccinations continue as medically necessary, furthermore, pushed as mandatory. The question for many individuals remain, just how safe are these vaccinations? The lion’s share of the public view vaccinations as safety nets that could prevent diseases and should stand as mandatory for everyone with very few exemptions in the population. However, philosophical beliefs, hazardous beliefs, and religious
Parents should regulate the amount of video games their children play because if your child regularly plays games with plots based on violence and aggression, research shows children at risk for increased aggressive behavior, it inhibits social interaction, and it is not always intellectually stimulating. First, parents, not government, need to monitor video games. Laws don't go far enough to help parents, argues Craig Anderson, a professor at Iowa State University: "The results are really quite clear; regardless of gender... regardless of culture... we know that playing violent videogames increases the likelihood of aggressive behavior and aggressive thinking, decreases the likelihood of pro-social behavior, and increases what you might think of as desensitization... Probably the best solution is to educate parents... but we also need to give parents better tools and the current rating systems don't do that." "One study reveals that young men who are habitually aggressive may be especially vulnerable to the aggression-enhancing effects of repeated exposure to violent games," said psychologists Craig A. Anderson, Ph.D., and Karen E. Dill, Ph.D. "The other study reveals that even a brief exposure to violent video games can
Alexandre Bardet Professor Searcy English Com 122 18 Oct, 2010 The MPAA should review the way ratings are completed in the terms of Sexual content in the films viewed. After viewing the movie “This movie is not yet rated”, you cannot miss the confusion moviemakers have about their ratings received. Any Sexual content in films has to receive a rating. Although it is totally understandable, a “R” rating would allow the moviemaker to extend its commercial use on TV or else; a “NC-17” rating will not allow them to project their film in most of the movie theaters. The “sex” issue in the movies should be reviewed by the MPAA, because how could someone rate an act of love and passion when we live in a society with violence.
They ban films that we find totally acceptable, even children’s films will be forbidden if seen as offensive in any way. Censorship is an alteration or deletion of a scene or line of dialog in a film that is seen to be harmful, or immoral. This is a much more favoured path to take as compared to the complete outlawing of a film, because this avenue limits the amount of potentially harmful material without totally interfering with freedom of speech. To ensure the right to freedom of speech in film, there is in place a rating system in the United States called the MPAA Rating System(Motion Picture Association of America).This system utilizes ratings G(General), PG(Parental Guidance), PG-13(Parental Guidance under the age of 13), R(Restricted), and NC-17(the most severe a film can get). In Canada we call it the Canadian Home Video Rating System, and the ratings we utilize are G, PG, 14A, 18A, and R. In Quebec they have a seperate method of rating as well called the Régie du Cinéma,with ratings ranging from G, 13+,16+, and 18+.
