Movies – A negative impact on children? Watching movies is a favourite pastime for everyone especially children. Children are greatly influenced from watching all sorts of movies and try to act on it among their family and friends. Children can learn a lot from watching certain movies but not controlling the type of movies they watch have a great impact on them. As a result these children end up being violent, dishonest, committing illegal activities and misbehaving and yes it could be agreed that movies do have a negative impact on children.
Children who encounter media violence on a daily basis are more violent then those who don't. Violent TV craves attention from it's young viewers and gets just what it wants when kids begin to replicate what is broadcasted. "TV violence sometimes begs for imitation because violence is often promoted as a fun and effective way to get what you want" (KidsHealth). Children imitate violence because it's an "effective way to get what [they] want," meaning that in order to get what they desire they need to act out violently. According to child behavioral therapist James Lehman, "Children…use violence to get what they want" and when the answer is no "the child gets frustrated and angry and hasn't learned any other
Children Make Terrible Pets One of the most read books in my household has got to be Children Make Terrible Pets, written and illustrated by Peter Brown. This book is visually and humorously appealing to children 4 to 6 years of age and of both genders. The main characters are of a male and a female, so both sexes are represented. Most children this age are attracted to humor that thinks “outside the box” so to speak, and this book delivers on that. Children at this age are becoming more mature in terms of their physical development.
Being a Bully for Self Gratification? Research into a Bully’s Emotions Abstract Why do Bullies Bully? There have been many studies in the past that look at bullies and behavioral problems. But isn’t bullying actually a behavioral problem in of its self? In my research I suggest that we look at the emotional response that the bully receives from their actions.
With the increased rate of working parents, most children come home from school and are left alone or with a babysitter who may not care what the children watch. With no supervision nearby, children may end up watching shows with violence, sex, and bad language. The journal then goes on to say that TV allows us to create a national culture because it gives people something in common to talk about. I hear it everyday, most people are talking about their comedy shows that they watched the night before rather than what they saw on the nightly news. In this generation we have to many choices.
As parents, school educators, and a community, we need to stand up to bullies and give kids who are being bullied an outlet to reach out for help. Most bullies do it to feel better about their selves; they believe their peers think it’s funny when they put down other kids. They have low self-esteem and are driven by jealousy and anger. Bullies are people who have not learned the lessons of consequences, that if they behave well, there are good consequences such as rewards, but if they behave badly there are bad consequences such as restriction, sanction, punishment. Since childhood, bullies have learned that they can avoid the unpleasant consequences of bad behavior through the instinctive response of denial, blame, and feigning victimhood.
Although television is loved by children and has helped children a lot, it can also influence children in a negative way. Some people can argue that children should be allowed to watch a lot of television because it can be educational. Preschoolers can get help to learn the alphabet on children’s programs such as Super Why, and grade scholars can learn about wildlife on nature shows. “A 2003 national survey of children, sponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation, indicates that the average child between the ages of 8 and 18 watches 3 hours of television a day, and the averages are even higher among younger age groups (8- to 14-year-olds watched an average of 3 hours and 16 minutes)” (Hersey and Jordan). Therefore, with the increased rate of working parents most children come home from school and are left alone or with a babysitter who may not care what the children are watching.
There has been a wide spread of bullying all across the globe especially in the United States. The educators, lawmakers, and researchers are trying to behead this epidemic as it has a major impact on adolescents’ lives. Many adolescents think that bullying is fun and amusing until it happens to them. The three components or types of bullying behavior as observed by researchers are as follows; it must be intended to cause bodily harm, it must done intentionally to a person, and must be done on an ongoing basis. A victim must also recognize the difference of power between him or her and the bully.
