Not really. Children's pyschees are easily suggestible and affectable, to expose them to obscene crap for no reason can be a problem.
it's not for no reason; it's to show them that that's what happens in the real world--it's better for them to see it so they can understand it properly rather than have it awkwardly explained to them by their parents after they've already known about it for years or have it even more awkwardly explained by a teacher that really doesn't want to take part in explaining it.
sex is a part of nature and a huge part of our society's culture, it's not something that should be restricted.
Children who've witnessed violence often go on to commit violence themselves, and children who've been abused often go on to be abusers themselves
...are you saying that there's a problem with children having sex when they've grown up? because that really doesn't make any sense at all.
notice how the people that you're talking about go on to do those things later in their lives.
and people have sex in their teens and as an adult really isn't a problem.
The fact of the matter is, *while it's just a movie, violence can effect a children's mind worse than an adult, and an adult who witnesses lots of realistic violence may become desensitized to it themselves anyways, so witnessing large volumes of obscene stuff is not a good idea.
there is that word again; obscene
sex and violence, as I said before, are both going to happen at some point in most people's lives, so it's best that they learn about it when they're young in a way that they feel comfortable with.
Since Cartoon violence is clearly fake, and stupid, it's somewhat more acceptable, but if all they watched was cartoon violence it would not be very nice; such as, didn't get Bug's bunnies other jokes etc.
what about non-cartoon violence in children's shows/movies?
like, for example, power rangers.
should children not be able to watch that any more?
and I don't know where you got the "all they watched" part since no one ever said anything about that before--you just pulled that out of thin air
You have yet to cite a reason why children need to be exposed to obscene graphic images and videos, particularly when their pyschees are fragile.
Learning about something isn't the same as being exposed to it.
My point is, even for adults huge amounts of exposure aren't good either, let alone for developing minds.
I watched Beavis and Butthead almost religiously, when I was a kid. I turned out A-OK. So I suggest it be left to the parents to decide what is best for their children, based on their understanding of the child in question's maturity and sensibility.
Because kids have a tendency to copy what they see on TV if what they see doesn't appear to be harmful or inappropriate.
that is a complete urban myth and complete bs
I watched ed, edd and eddy when I was younger and I didn't start scamming people
I watched south park when I was younger (as did a lot of the people I know) and we didn't go around flipping people off or spewing cuss words
I'm not saying that parents shouldn't have any part in their kids learning things like this, but I do believe that it makes the learning process a lot more comfortable for both the child and the parent if they see it on the television and then the adult simply explains what the child was watching to them.
and for the record, I find the fact that most people are more comfortable with children watching violence than sex incredibly disturbing
Check the bolded. In Ed, Edd, 'n Eddy, the characters would usually fail in their scams or face some other sort of punishment.
I guess it really depends on the kid. I don't care what people do.
