The article discusses children and the craze for TV viewing. For more than a quarter of a century, researchers have been studying the effects of TV viewing on both children and adults. Although controversies still exist, the data presents a pretty clear picture of increased aggression in all age groups, especially among children, following the viewing of violent TV. The effects vary from child to child, depending on differences in temperament and social environment, as well as age. For children though, the line between fantasy and reality is still easily blurred, especially when a child has a rich imagination.
