Read the chapter, watch the videos and then develop a
list of recommendations (supported by the research) for the television
industry to consider. Some that have been suggested include:
• Reduce the number of violent portrayals in childrens cartoons.
• Show the short-term and long-term negative consequences of violence.
• Show more alternatives to the use of violence to solve problems.
• Entertainment programs with substantial violent content should be scheduled later in the evening.
Find the articles below and one current study, state your recommendations and discuss with your course mates.
