Desensitization in Children
Media violence can develop desensitization in children, which can potentially develop anti-socialdisorder and violent behavior.ByDavid Caban, MBA
Desensitization in Children
Media violence is a social role model that tends to cultivate the minds and social behavior of children. This can result of children developing desentization to violence, which affects prosocial development. Also, children can develop aggressive and violent behavior at an earlier age. This can affect biopsychosocial development (Jarrett, 2005). For instance, it affects the brain, the heart and the central nervous system (CNS). In addition, this affects children’scognitive development, which impairs social skills, and critical skills development, whichimpedes social development (Chory-Assad, 2003; Jarrett, 2003). Media violence causes seizures,insomnia and impairing any interest in educational development (Anderson & Bushman, 2002).
