American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. "Children And TV Violence". November 2002 - "Hundreds of studies of the effects of TV violence on children and teenagers have found that children may:

  • become "immune" or numb to the horror of violence
  • gradually accept violence as a way to solve problems
  • imitate the violence they observe on television; and
  • identify with certain characters, victims and/or victimizers"
