The subject of my project is "T.V and Violence". My research question is:
How T.V. programs influence on violence?

I choose this subject because I spend most of my free time in front of the television.
In addition, I want to know what people think about violence program on T.V., Moreover this subject is very important and its effect on us every day.

We all have the goal for less violence in our world, but there are many causes for violence like the T.V. that influence on our children.
In our television, there are programs that have bad or good influence.
The bad influence effect on violence, among children.

My goal is to find on who violence on T.V. effect?, what it causes?, and what can we do to solve this problem.
I searched a lot to know more about this situation, and what we should do to have a much better society and have less violence.


It has always been said that T.V. is a tool that millions of people use regularly in their everyday lives.
Television could be one of the popular technological invention of all times.
Millions of people now have at least one television in their homes.
Television is a great invention. Television has become a major problem, in our lives. Although television can negatively affect people, especially kids, it provides us with knowledge that we don't get at school.

Violence is the expression of physical or literal force against others.
There are kinds and differences violence situation.
For example: Physical violence, violence against women, violence in families, Emotional abuse and many more.
Physical violence is the intentional use of physical force with the potential for causing injury, harm, disability, or death, for example, hitting, biting, and kicking.
Emotional abuse can include humiliating the victim privately or publicly, controlling what the victim can and cannot do, isolating the victim in front of friends and family.

The T.V. full of programs that include violence, Television teaches viewers especially young children to act and be violent.
Children who spend their afternoon watching T.V., learn bad behaviors.
Violence on television influence children in several ways:
First of all, children copy the violence that they watch on T.V., second of all, the children identify with one of the characters, they admire them very much so they can copy and act like them, even if they are violent.
In addition, extended viewing of television violence cause children and made them more aggressive, scared, rude, and encouraged them to solve their own problems by violence.
All that happened because of the T.V. violence that has large affect on children.
Do you ask yourself "Does the media violence affect children more than adults?" yes they have more difficulty to do the difference between good and bad and between real life and fantasy, because everything looks real to them.
This is the big and the major problem; children act like their violent Heros and they solve their problems like their Heros, by violence.
To solve this big problem we can do many things:
We can limit the age for several programs channel or even block them, we also can create nonviolent characters so they will have a good influence on the children.
We, as parents have to keep busy our children in other things except for television, in order to expose them to another way of have fun.

T.V. is the invention that impacts upon mankind the most, since that we can change everything, even the violent.

Nowadays, children watch T.V. for most of their time.
They are wasting their time on the T.V. instead of go out and play or doing their homework.


In conclusion, in our T.V. many violent programs have bad influence on our children especially young children.
Most of the people think that T.V. is full of violent programs.
In addition, many people realize that our children became very violent because of watching television.
The children became very violent, aggressive, scared, rude, and bad behavior.
These kids who spend their time in front of the television are try to copy the characters’ actions, they identify with the violent characters.

In order to solve a big problem we have to pay attention for what our children see.
Try watching TV or playing video games with your children and talk with them about the things you see together, you have to make a good communication, encourage your children to think about what they are watching; let them know why violent programs and violent generally disturb you.
Moreover, even limit the watching of the kids.

Watching the news and discuss about events like war can provide an opportunity to reinforce the results of violence, and make them know that watching violence isn't good.
The worse thing is that we are ignoring from this big problem and let our children to watch what ever they like, instead of fix this and take care of our children.
We have corrected this; there are ways to do it we just have to pay more attention for our kids.


After l finished my project and after I found what I was, looking for I was very relaxed supplied and satisfied.

At the beginning, I decided what my subject would be.
Afterwards, I decided about my research question "How T.V. programs influence on violence?"
I started to research about my subject and begun to answer my question.
I answer my question by summarize all that information I had.

I enjoyed doing this project.
I have learned many new things, like:
Television has bad influence on children the most, still the parents let them watch what ever they like.
I truly want to know how children feel when they are watching these violent programs.
Because you can't understand their thoughts, and its very interesting.

During the survey, I found new information that I did not know before.
Most of the people, 57.1%, think that T.V. is not violent.
In addition, 85.7% of the people consider that watching violent programs has bad influence, and that reality TV is the most violent station.
Many people prefer to watch comedy instead of action.
I realized that the age rage 7-11 is influenced the most from violence on TV.
Many people think that it is right to limit the age of watching violence on TV.

After I did this survey, I realize that T.V. is very violent.
On every station even on children station, we have violent.
