Violence in the Media
The AAFP supports community and legislative efforts focusing on the reduction of children's exposure to violence in the media such as the media rating system already used in many states. Parents are encouraged to:
- set limits on TV and Internet use,
- screen the programs their children view to assure appropriateness for age and maturity,
- employ parental controls on media devices whenever possible, and
- seek alternatives for using the media for babysitting and entertainment.
