DOES VIEWING VIOLENCE OR PLAYING VIOLENT GAMES MAKE A PERSON VIOLENT. 2 I believe that viewing violence on tv or in a video game does not increase the chance that the viewer will become violent but plays a part or role. I believe it depends on that person mind set, the environment they are in as well as that person age. I believe if the viewer is an adult then it’s different because the adult should know better, but if that adults suffers from a mental illness then I believe they may perceive it differently. Children playing or watching violent things are different because that child is growing up and learning everything they see, so if a child is subjected to that type of behavior on the daily I don’t think it will make them become violent, but I do think that it de-sensitize that child and that child become unbothered by violence where a child that is not subjected to violence a lot would have some type of emotion or would think that it is wrong. Compared to a child that is subjected to violence a lot will have less emotion than the child that is not immune to it. So, I believe it does not make them violent, but I do think it messes with them emotionally, it takes part in their action or how they react in certain situations as well as their speech. In my opinion no matter the age we as human do what we see which could also impact our decisions or reactions, but for young children if playing violent games or watching violent tv shows, time should definitely be limited and you should be a certain age to watch or play certain things. I believe parents should follow the ratings of a tv show or video games because a child should not be watching or playing a rated R game or watching a rated R tv show.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
