Violence on children TV’s
According to, (world health organization, 2004), Violence can be defined as the use of physical force willingly against another person or group or community and may result to them being intimidated, threatened or harmed or even death. Violence in children TV shows like cartoons have become so rampant and is harmful. In the animation TV show, “teenage mutant ninja turtles”, that first air on December 1987, is one animation with an extreme level of violence. Use of swords, blood-shed and violent situation were so occasional in this cartoons, (johnson, 2014).
Remorse, criticism and most definitely consequences are some qualities that characterize violence situation, however, in this show, there was no sign of remorse. Actually as a matter of fact, the violence was accompanied by celebration and great joy since the turtles believed they were beating the bad guys and every successful violent act against the enemy called for celebrations. As well, the type of criticism present in this show is somehow sarcastic since, the violence acts here are criticized if they don’t go as planned, defeating the enemy. There were both positive and negative consequences from this show. From the show itself, the violence had a positive influence since it saved the lives of innocent civilians and stopped the so called “bad guys”. However on the other hand, it really had so many negative effects on the children enjoying and loving this show. It affects the children way of thinking and actions, some children develop a sense of aggressiveness, most don’t know how to differentiate what’s real and what they are just made to believe, they tend to emulate the actions on this shows. The children become violent, bullies, and use violent ways to solve their trouble rather than the peaceful way, (clark, 2009).
Violent shows will and shall never end and children should not be
