Here goes blog quote #276...
"We found that the best single predictor we had as to how aggressive a young person would be at age 19 was the violence of the tv programs that he preferred when he was 8 years old."
-Leonard Eron, psychologist-
When talking of the shape of our bodies, they say we are what we eat. When talking about the condition of our mind.. the same pattern follows. We are what we watch, what we listen to, who we hang out with, and what we read. Garbage in, garbage out. Good food for the brain in, good results.
Ten to twenty years ago it was tv's, radios, movies in the theatres, and albums and cassettes. Today, it's ipods, DVDs, CD's , X boxes and MP3's. What are your kids watching and listening to? What types of other kids are they associating with? Are they reading good stuff or junk?
I'd be willing to bet that Dr Eron's findings still hold true today. HMMMM
That's my view...what say you?
