Violent films and TV shows are often aimed at the younger members of the family, but a new study from Indiana University shows that kids do not enjoy the violence. According to the study, 70% of children’s TV shows feature some sort of violence. The kids who took part in the study (both boys and girls, ages five to eleven) were actually turned off by the violent programming.
This week, on the basis of free speech, a California law that banned children from buying video games was ruled against by the Supreme Court. While most parents agree with the decision, citing that the decision is one parents should make, not the government, a few people believe it is just an extra safety precaution and the ruling was out of line.
