Watch any ½ hour television program meant for young children. Make a note of the television rating given to the program [where will they see this?]. As you watch, keep a tally of 1) aggressive acts by any character (including both physical and relational aggression) and 2) prosocial acts, and the results of each. Share your findings, including the following:
- In your view, does the content of the show match the rating given?
- What was the proportion of aggressive to prosocial acts?
- How do you think viewing the aggression in this show affects children?
