There were researches conducted about this topic and almost all came to the conclusion that watching violent TV programs affect negatively the behavior of children. What is your opinion about this?

I think children will copy some of the behaviors they see around them.. For example a child wild do some things his father or mother do, or what their friends do, so I think it will also be possible for them to copy behavior from tv, violent or non-violent..

I dont believe in children watching violence on the television,its bad enough when they get older let alone letting them watch it when they are young!and its sad to see that there is so much violence shown these days,no matter where you turn theres no escape from it.But the idea of the children using the violent games is another very bad idea,the games like the new Grand theft auto

I do. Most children mimic what they watch without knowing whether its good or bad. So when they watch violent scenes more or less they will become violent too.

Child has not know the world around them completely and has not develop their attitude to the world. Most of thim they learn from others what they should do in certain situation. They imitate from others around, what others do impress a lot on their behavior. Be sure let kid be away from violence.
