headeriNFLueNce iN YouR RecLAim s p ec i a l a dv e rto r i a l GRANDchiLD’s LiFe Stand Up to Irresponsible Media By patty leonard, president & ceo of Family values cinema and tim Winter, president of the parents television council “Lisa” became a fan of TV’s Sex and the City when she was 14 and quickly lost her virginity, “graduated” to ordering cosmopolitans at bars, and repeatedly cheating on her boyfriend, she told ABCNews.com. A fifteen-year-old faces felony child-porn charges for circulating nude cell phone pictures. Every day, guns in schools or gang violence claim more young lives, and many perpetrators blame their actions on what they see on TV. These tragic, heartbreaking accounts are, sadly, not unusual. Where Did We Go Wrong? Popular Media vs. Our Children’s Futures it may seem overly simplistic to say our media culture is to blame, but it is impossible to ignore the mounting evidence. three major recent studies document the connection between exposure to violence, sexuality, and risky behavior in the media and corresponding real-life violence, teen pregnancy, drug, tobacco and alcohol use, and childhood obesity. turn on the television any night and you’ll find multiple examples exalting casual extramarital sex or grisly, gory violence. Take Charge with Responsible Family Entertainment: Using the Media as a Positive Force in Children’s Lives Media is here to stay. and when it comes to their own tv sets, adults often feel powerless against it.
