“Average time kids spend watching TV each day: 4 Hours”

“Children younger than 8 cannot uniformly discriminate between real life and fantasy/entertainment… They quickly learn that violence is an acceptable solution to resolving even complex problems, particularly if the aggressor is the hero."

“62% say that sex on TV shows and movies influences kids to have sex when they are too young”

my input
My input:
  • Censorship, what should be censored, and what should not be is judged primarily case by case and person to person. I think that as I bring my presentation to a close, that it is necessary to share my thoughts and opinions of censorship and how my research on this topic has influenced me…
personal feelings

slide18

If you have your own morals, values, and life philosophy and are true to them –

  • media influence shouldn’t have any effect on you besides expanding your horizons and knowledge to different ideas.
  • You have complete control over what influences you.
slide19

I hope you can develop some feelings and decisions for yourself too. You have the choice, the power and the influence of what should and shouldn’t be censored and what you Choose and refuse to watch.
