addition the question that is of paramount importance to this whole
piece of investigative work is:

sites, books, newspaper articles, magazines and of course watching a television program on the issue to enable me to gather information on previous research that has already been written on the effects of television violence

Before we move into the discussion of the effects of television
violence and whether or not children imitate what they have seen on
television, it is important to offer a definition of violence. The
following statement gives a clear and concise explanation:
“Violence is a general term to describe actions, usually deliberate,
that cause or intend to cause injury to people, animals, or non-living
objects. Violence is often associated with aggression.”(www//
There has been a considerable amount of research into
inter-relationships between the viewing of violent films, videos and
TV programs and aggressive behavior by the viewers of such
material, in particular the behavior of children.
The range of media to which children have access to has grown rapidly
in this generation. Take the books, newspapers, magazines, films,

going to look at previous research to see if I can find the answers to
my questions.

representing all regions of the world.
Under the supervision of Dr. Jo Groebel of Utrecht University, the
study aimed to understand the role of media in the lives of children
and the relationship between media violence and aggressive behavior
among children in different settings.
The study found that 93% of children watch an average of three hours
television a day. This is at least 50% more than the time spent on any
other out-of-school activity, including homework, being with friends,
or reading. This evidence leaves little doubt that television is the
most important medium in the lives of children almost everywhere in
the world today.
In addition the study revealed, television, expose’s children to high
levels of violent images on a daily basis. Furthermore it revealed, in
many countries, there is an average of five to ten aggressive acts per
hour on children’s television programs.
The study found evidence that media images reinforce the experiences
of children in their real-life environments. Almost half (44%) of
both boys and girls reported a strong overlap between what they
