Early Exposure to Media Violence and Later Child Adjustment
Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, 05/15/2012Fitzpatrick C et al.
This prospective study suggests risks associated with early childhood violent media exposure for long–term mental health in children. These findings, suggesting diffusive relationships between early childhood violent media exposure and negative socioemotional and academic outcomes, empirically support the notion that access to early childhood violent television represents a threat to population health and should be discouraged by adult caregivers.
