Media Violence IS a SERIOUS Threat to Our Youth

Growing up in the Sixties and Seventies, our age group was sold on the Make Peace, Not War messages that were in the Media during that era. Flower children told us Love was the answer. We were greatly influenced by the media as young people are still today.  Unless you are blind as a bat, it's hard not to be affected by the overwhelming evidence of violence and coldness in our young people today.  Television programs based on fact, Killer Kids, can attest to the attitude of anger which has arisen with this generation. Never before have so many young people been killing their parents, their families and even their friends when they disagree.  There is mounting evidence in Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano  updated version of "Stop Teaching Our Kids To Kill; A Call to Action Against TV, Movie & Video Game Violence" that children are greatly affected by what they see and hear.  Lt. Grossman compares this media with the army's conditioning techniques used to overcome a soldiers' aversion to killing.  This book will take an in depth view of how parent's must have greater involvement in censoring their child's books, movies and games.  Learn how to take action to prevent future violence.  It's never too late to get on board for a more positive future. I was given the opportunity to review this book for Blogging for Books. For more information on Book
