What Is Causing Emerging Violence From Our Children

Jan 12, 2008
If you go back through history, would it be possible to find a time when there has been such violence instigated by children in their teenage years and even younger, as there is being reported today? There has to be something that has gone terribly wrong in our society that is causing such violence from our youth.

The many incidents that have taken place since the first reports of the Columbine tragedy, seems to only be growing. They do seem to follow a similar pattern. A troubled youth or perhaps two, descend upon unsuspecting people at school, or most recently, a shopping mall, and begin to kill and injure anyone in their path.

It is really silly for us all to stand back and wonder how and why these acts of violence are taking place. With the hectic lives of many parents today and the pursuit of the American Dream for their families, the children in these families are too often left in the shadows alone to entertain themselves.

It does not matter what kind of entertainment it is, cable, satellite, video games, and even music, can be damaging for many young and impressionable kids who are too often left to their own choices. These situations are only compounded in those youth who are already experiencing emotional problems of some kind.

While it is true that many parents today are taking precautions necessary to shield their children from inappropriate material, whatever form it takes. There are still many others who are so busy or simply think that the horrendous violence that kids are exposed to is not harmful. What are they thinking?

Any child who is already troubled, maybe ignored a little too often, and wants more attention, can easily see in the things they watch, even the news, that violent acts gains you attention.

They may not be capable of fully comprehending the end results of violence, but they comprehend the attention factor, which might be most important and necessary to them at the moment.

We all do not need to be psychiatrist or child behavior specialist to understand that violence begets violence. Adults should have the right to watch and listen to what they want to, but in doing so our children must be protected at the same time.

It is ultimately a parents responsibility to see that these precautions are in place, not societies, although less violent surroundings would be good for us all. With the parental controls and ratings systems that are in place today, there is no excuse for us to not know what our children watching.
