Hm, I have to say I agree a lot with Harajukulover's original comment.

I can see how TV can influence SOME kids, but I definitely don't believe it affects them all. I would say the amount of control the media has on a child depends on their parents and how they are censored. When I was younger, a lot of my friends were censored from violent cartoons like Pokemon, popular music like Eminem, and movies that were not completely child friendly. I noticed that a lot of my friends (and kids like them) did things their parents had tried to prevent them from doing by heavily censoring them. I'm not sure, but I think that by heavily censoring your child, they don't learn how to really deal with reality. They don't know why they shouldn't do what their parents don't want them to do, they just know that that bad behavior is forbidden and therefore ~fun~. It seems that the heavy censoring, the lack of knowledge, and their own curiosity kind of combines to create a sense of ignorance that allows the child to be affected by TV and the media.

Of course, that's just my opinion on the matter. Sorry for rambling. >^<

TV can have its ups and downs. I mean... what can we do about it? We show ratings, we give warnings that the show may be disturbing to some viewers and so much more. I think this is a personal issues thing. Parents need to warn their kids about TV but all we can do is inform them. We can't force them or anything. In my opinion, TV is uber awesome and it indeed does influence people's and kid's choices...but so what? It's their choice and if there's a prob. with it...then the parents or someone else handles it themselves...lol xD I think I might've answered this wrong...
That's what she said...xD
