Its not fair to single handedly blame violent video games, when there are tons of other violent media sources out there. Karen Sternheimer is a sociologist from the University of Southern California and has been researching…

Effects of Media Violence on Children and Family

The National Television Violence Study defines “media violence as an overtly depiction of credible threat of physical force intended to physically harm an animate being or group of beings” (Bartholow, Dill, Anderson, & Lindsay, 2003, p. 3).
