The effects of Violence on TV
Many people believe that television violence has a negative effect on society because it promotes violence, whether in children, adolescents and elderly. It would not hurt to say that people with certain mental health problems who are violent are more dangerous than people who do not have any mental disorder. It is for these and other reasons, which I totallyagree that TV violence has no positive effect to the society.
Early studies on the possible deleterious effect of television on human aggressive behavior originate in the United States in the mid-twentieth century. If you review all the studies done since then to date on audiences, we see time and again that most television viewers considered that television can cause harmful effects.

Other times they doharmlessly playing that mimic what they see on television.

One of the tasks of adolescence is to develop a sense of continuity and historical context. So this means that television is not the appropriate tool to promote the intellectual development that produces thoughtful adult. Teens should and need to know to be part of the continuing human process, this is one of the reasons why teenagers like to watch movies andtelevision programs that deal with careers, relationships and social problems it helps them not to isolate.
