An issue facing schools and educators today is that of children being desensitized to violence because of their many contact hours with the media (Carlsson-Paige & levin, 1992). Media becomes a powerful tool in the socialization process, when children are constantly exposed to the idea that violence is an acceptable and effective method of solving problems. When children are exposed to violent models for conflict resolution, whether firsthand or through the media, this becomes part of their repertoire of developed responses to conflict. Building on these responses, more violence is fostered. Other positive social responses that should be part of the child's developing social cognition, are crowded out.
