Media Violence

In reflecting on Piaget’s work on cognitive development, why would violence in the media be problematic for young children? Please explain. Media violence often leads to kids acting violently themselves or seeing violence as an acceptable form of behavior. Too much media time also exposes kids to racism, sexism, brutality, and other deviant behavior (The Cabin. 2018). Alcohol and drug abuse are featured in films, popular series, music videos, video games, and thousands of websites. When these behaviors and values are portrayed as ‘acceptable’ there is a real danger of kids taking them on board. The immature brain soon becomes ‘immune’ and kids begin to accept potentially addictive behaviors including drinking, gaming, or gambling as somehow ‘cool’ and attractive (The Cabin. 2018). List at list three related issues, health or otherwise, that correlate with the number of time children spends watching television, using computers, playing video games, or using hand-held devices. Please explain the correlation • Children who consistently spend more than 4 hours per day watching TV are more likely to be overweight. • Kids who view violent acts on TV are more likely to show aggressive behavior, and to fear that the world is scary and that something bad will happen to them. • Teens who play violent video games and apps are more likely to be aggressive. • Characters on TV and in video games often depict risky behaviors, such as smoking and drinking, and also reinforce gender-role and racial stereotypes. As a social worker, how would you address the issues discussed in question 2? As a social worker, I would suggest to the parents to talk to their children more. Perhaps engage in more activities involving the family. Outdoor activities in a group setting, such as, camping, will help with social skills and positive cognitive development. The Cabin. (2018). How Media Impacts Youth and Children Today. Retrieved From:   Pediatric Child Health. (N.D). Children and the Media. Retrieved From: https:// www.nbci.nlm.nih.hov Module 6: Family and Middle Childhood (graded) Carla Paisley Mildred Parten described six categories of play related to child development.  Unoccupied Play occurs when a child is present and observant about the activities of others around them. This type of play can be perceived as disorganized and random, but the child is exploring his or her space and navigating the space of those around them. An example of activity associated with unoccupied play would be the child moved from object to object, from blocks to toys to art supplies as their peers do the same. Allowing a child the ability to explore and engage with his or her environment is a healthy means for the child to be able to learn to establish self-trust and the ability to navigate group dynamics. This may occur in busy playgrounds, in schoolyards, or in parks as children explore and move through space according to their own interests. Independent Play is a focused activity in which the child seems disinterested in the activities of others while happily engaging in the activities which are interesting to them. This is a common type of play for younger children and important in developing personal skills and how to interact with others eventually. An example of independent play would be the behavior of a child in a large group who is content to read a book or draw quietly as activity continues around him or her. A child engaged in independent play is content to become engrossed in his or her activities while activity continues around. Onlooker Play is associated with children observing the play of their peers and activities of their caregivers. Children participating in onlooker play may engage verbally with their peers and converse about their activity, but they do not actively engage. An example would be watching a peer put together a puzzle and talking to him or her about the progress or about the image that the puzzle represents.  Adjacent Play occurs when children are content to play alongside one another with both engrossed in their separate activities. Little social exchange occurs during adjacent play and both children are content being parallel in their activities and minimal in their interactions. They are aware of the presence and activities of their peers but happy to play in proximity though not together. An example would be children together in a room playing side-by-side with different toys. No sharing or cooperative play, but an adjacent activity that is mutually independent. Associative Play involves a child using the social skills practiced and mastered in the previous stages. During associative play, a child demonstrates interest in the participants or caregivers present, but not the activity necessarily. An example of associative play would be a child choosing to spend playtime talking to the people around him or her, making connections that are personal and important. Associative play doesn’t even need to center activity for children. It can occur as conversation and information sharing.  Cooperative Play occurs when children can work on a mutually engaging project or toy while sharing and allowing the other to actively engage equally.  Cooperative play involves turn-taking, sharing, and cooperation that assumes that a child has successfully navigated the social skills inherent in previous stages. An example would be playing a cooperative board game and having the patience to take turns and wait for the other participant to understand the rules and expectations of play. Cooperative play is difficult for children while engaging with peers who may be in previous stages of play development. It requires an extraordinary level of patience and self-restraint for a child to be able to relate his or her peers in a manner that continues to be cooperative as opposed to defensive or insecure.  A comparison between Independent and Associative play involves understanding the similarities between the two. Both types are indirectly related to play, without centering actual activity that is organized and scripted. Both types of play involve communication and understanding that the activity is important to the other and mutual respect for the engagement of each person in their own area of interest. Differences between the two center the level of verbal communication. Independent play is relatively noncommunicative while associative play relies on information sharing and verbal exchange. Independent play occurs among peers who are content to disengage and participate in their own activity while associative play typically centers a goal. Lastly, a difference between the two involves the level of development required in order to successfully navigate each one. Independent play is a primary stage in relational development that requires that a child gain an understanding of the way that the objects within his or her grasp operate. Associative play is a more advanced level of understanding about the role of the participant and those around the child. Understanding Mildred Parten’s Social Behavior Theory of Play. (2020, August 03). Retrieved August 11, 2020, from Module 6: Social Justice for Women and Children (graded) Jerry Saunders I believe the shift in society’s understanding and views of sexual assault and harassment has to do with victim services and those survivors being public about the acts that have happened to them, this can be seen as the #METOO movement. In the work environment, it is addressed, if you work for the state you have it once a year mandatory training; this is believed that it will help reduce and educate those in the class to help see what sexual harassment looks like then what it is only seen as. The two major changes is education and survivors talking to the public about what they faced, at times some survivors of sexual assault go to training events to give their story and educate that this is how it happened and where it started with just a simple request that then is taken as a sexual requirement from a supervisor or co-worker.   “Social philosopher Margaret Crouch, Ph.D., wrote that the intention of all sexual harassment is to keep women in their place, subordinate in society, in public spaces—male domains (2009). Pinching, pawing, staring, whistling, remarks, sexual assault (some even add murder), are ways of communicating: “My street, my bus station, my train—I have power. You don’t.” (Great Valley Publishing Company, I. (2020)             Social workers are helping policy by bringing in employer requirements to respond to all reports of abuse and investigating them if the employer does not; they will face legal charges and lawsuits which are to protect the client. (Barusch, A. S. (2017) Even from reporting the worker is still protected because social workers put in a policy that if the worker is fired then It is seen as a form of retaliation which is illegal and can also face lawsuits, but the employee must file and do their diligences then and only then if no action is taken by the employer then this is where the laws and policies the social worker has developed will come into play. Social workers also help the clients with pursuing advocacy where to find support and help, fallowing with what legal options they have to protect themselves from the attacker. The other role of a social worker is to make sure they find services for physical and mental health for the client, without forcing it in the survivor. One thing I think is the most important is when talking to the client is referred to them as a survivor, not a victim, the word victim to a survivor isn’t inspiring or hopeful but the survivor is; survivor to live through a tragic life-altering event, I like this a lot more than being told I’m a victim. Because I choose to keep moving forward every day, I didn’t get to choose the actions that befell me but I have the choice to move forward and educate others.             This is a better mindset than being told repeatedly that we are a victim, I suppose it also comes down to the client you have but to show respect and honor the client’s ordeal they are coping with.     Great Valley Publishing Company, I.
