I find this article interesting. I like what it says about limiting the amount of violence children watch. This makes perfect sense to me. Although I am not sure about all the psychological affects of violence (in fact many would argue that there are no bad side-effects) I do know from personal experience that televisions, video games and movies are not good places to find moral values.

With that being said, I disagree with this article concerning the idea of presenting legislation to limit what young children could watch. This idea would allow the government to be more involved in the lives of our families. After all who would want child protective services taking your children away because you let them watch 'the Avengers' or 'Spider-Man' to me this doesn't make sense at all. It would be way to hard to legislate and keep track of this anyways.

What does make sense to me is teaching children to make decisions for themselves. This would include helping children understand how to make good media choices and use of their time.
