Run Flyer – Parentas Against Media Violence

Register online for Nov 15 – WALK AGAINST MEDIA VIOLENCE

Objective of this Run:
– To create awareness among parents and children about adverse health impact of media violence targeted at children.
– To protest violent content in TV, videogames, movies and other multimedia products targeted at children.

Did you know:
-American children between ages two and 18 spend an average of six hours and 32 minutes each day using media?

-Children, by an early age of 12 would have viewed more than 8,000 killings and 100,000 other violent acts on television alone?

-The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry with hundreds of studies of the effects of TV/media violence on children and teenagers have found that children may:

  • Become ‘immune’ to the horror of violence;
  • Gradually accept violence as a way to solve problems;
  • Imitate the violence they observe on television;
  • Identify with certain characters, victims and/or victimizers.

-Research has associated exposure to media violence with a variety of physical and mental health problems for children and adolescents including aggressive behavior, desensitization to violence, fear, depression, sleep disturbances and nightmares.
