As we brought up in discussion this week was how watching a certain show or playing a certain video game can bring out a calming or "violent" behavior. When I was growing up the Power Rangers were one of my favorite shows and having a lot of experience with this topic, yes after watching the show I wanted to act out what the Power Rangers were doing, but that didn't mean that I went and punched a random person off the street. Children learn a lot by observing, but they also learn a lot when their parents tell them what's wrong and what's right. At a young age children need positive role models, like their parents or a family member, and I don't think that shows like the Power Rangers will make a child become violent. I do think that video games and T.V. shows have become more violent, but if the parents make it clear to their kids it's just pretend and there's a certain boundary you cross when you karate chop your sibling's arm. And the game of being a Ranger usually last for five minutes anyway before they get distracted by something else. There is nothing wrong with a little imagination.
