Sociological studies on the impact of television programs on people’s lives have concluded that these programs exercise a significant influence on changing their ways of behaving towards others. But how TV violence influences on the audience of TV programs? F. S. Anderson in his 20-year study concluded that a large part of the alleged studies of links between television violence and aggressive behavior of persons who followed them. Another part had maintained that absolute conclusions doesn’t exist, and another part was of the opinion that watching TV programs with violent episodes weaken aggressive behaviour. Other studies have brought different opinions and conclusions from these.
The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between programs with episodes of violence that they watch on television, internet, in their daily activity, and aggressive behavior of young adolescents. Also, to analyze the impact of institutions such as family and school mitigate or promote the impact of these programs on aggressive or non-aggressive behavior of adolescents. In describing the study are used data from the thoughts and opinions of a significant number of adolescents and teachers obtained from interviews, conversations with them, and by the observation of their daily activity.
Family and schools play an important role in the lives of adolescents. But how these institutions affect their behavior? Results have shown that by involving young people in various activities, and making them feel part of a group can reduce the impact of television violence on them.
