Multiple video games on the market today include violence (for example: Modern Warfare). These video games cause or influence children that play them to become much more violent. Some resulted actions include physical fighting, poor word usage, or just simply yelling out loud. Video games become addicting after time; which is why violence has increased over the years in kids. Another device that affects children's behavior is television. Many TV shows have shown violence, including TV shows that are rated G (General Audience). For example, Nickelodeon’s show, iCarly use physical violence and changes some inappropriate words to appropriate sounding words.
