Even if you do not take time to reduce the time the child will spend watching the TV programs, the current research study on this course proves that the certainties can be achieved as initially perceived.

The objective of this latest study was to help provide clear information on the impact television content presents on the issuance of young children especially those between the ages of 3-5 years old. According to this research, it was confirmed that after a duration of six months, families taken down kid’s exposure to aggression and increased violence on the account of programs watched on the television sets, even without viewership hours alteration, behavior can be bent towards the right direction allowing your child to portray different characteristics as compared to what they portrayed when they watched those violence filled television shows. So what were the outcomes?

Well, for one, the improvements showed that there was declined aggression to the child and this would continue to soften making the child understanding thus improving the social health on the accounts of empathy, helpfulness as well as getting concerned about the wellbeing of other people if the exposure to violent television programming is decreased and more educative material introduced in return.

About the study and what it entailed

The study was conducted on a period of 12 months and 565 families were enrolled to participate. According to the published results, the amount of television that was viewed had not decreased, however, the viewership did not into the effect, contribute negative results since the overall behavior of the kids had improved substantially. This study was carried out in the US, but in New Zealand, a similar research procedure was conducted and it was substantiated that more television is normally watched during childhood and adolescence stages and this would later result to bad behaviors such as having the child convicted on criminal charges and this was associated with aggressive television programming especially when they were in those tender ages.

Why the results show benefits

Preschoolers in the US, in most families, are allowed to watch up to 4.5 hours of television a day, though this might sound like an alarming amount, there is the inclusion of age in proprietary, where the range takes up to the teen drama, child series to more complex and adult cable television viewing. The idea with young children unlike an adult, it is that they learn by imitating what they see on television and thus why the outcomes are constrained on the television programming regulations.

According to Jennifer Mangenello, who is an associate professor at the University Of Albany School Of Public Health, she argued that the innovative study showed that content changing and viewership time can indeed a lower risk of aggression. She was not part of the study though.
