Since television is so pervasive in our lives , many researchers have come to study the connection of television on children's development. Research to date strongly indicates associations between aggressive behavior and viewing violent material on television . The present study looked, from the parent's perspective , at the relationship of television on their child' s behavior at home. The study examined the amount of television programming children are watching, the kinds of programming children are watching , how they react to what they see , whether forbidding certain violent programming had an effect on children' s interest in a program a nd whether gender played a role in aggressiveness.
