Transcript of Negative Effects of Media on Teens

Violence and the Media Video Games By Carly Bohnen Negative Effects of Media on Teens Television Magazines Magazines Television/Movies Playing violent video games can make some teens more hostile.
Research has shown that this violence comes out in kids with certain personalities.
Teens that are easily upset, angry, depressed, emotional, offer little concern for others, indifferent to others feelings, cold, break rules, and act without thinking are the ones most likely to become violent from video games.
Only certain personalities can be affected by violent video games Television Television can cause teens to become desensitized to violence.
Kids are exposed to violence at a young age when they watch cartoons
Teens catch a glimpse of violence on reality shows and even talk shows.
Kids get comfortable to what is on television because it is so often used as a teacher or baby sitter.
When a teen then watches TV where people use acts of violence to get what they want, they don't see that line between right and wrong because they trust what is going on.
The criminal is usually made out to be smart while the police are made out to be fools.
Sex and the Media Facts 46% of high school seniors have had sex
about one in six have had sex with four or more partners
The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the Western world
A quarter of teenagers have had a sexually transmitted infection
one in ten girls who have had teen sex say that the first time was against their will.
15 to 24-year-olds contract nearly half of all new STIs every year. Shows like The Bachelor are showing teens that when a bunch of girls live in a house with one man, the ones that are most willing to kiss are the most likely to get the guy
most television aimed at teens and young adults doesn't connect STIs and pregnancy to sexual activity
it won't stop because "sex sells" especially to teens Popular shows like true blood make teens believe they should live a life like them. It gives teens the idea that sex is fun and an everyday activity. they convey adolescent girls as boy-crazy
Forty-four percent of the articles in teen magazines focus on dating or sex
magazines like Cosmopolitan, which are made for adults and women already married, are now being read by teens Still don't believe sex in the media is affecting teens? Body Image and the Media a recent study showed that the total amount of television that teens watch is related with their overall body image dissatisfaction
girls attracted to thin female TV characters are more likely to view their bodies as being heavy
TV shows girls being too thin and males being too muscular and then praise them as being most attractive
one study showed that over half the female characters in movies or television had comments made about their appearance, while the commercials being shown during these shows also focused on improving one's physical appearance [Source: Teen Health]
. the weight gap between women in magazines and average women keeps getting larger
according to Eating Disorders Journal, women shown in magazines weigh an average of 15% less than the average female
when two groups of college students were shown pictures of girls from magazines, the group shown the thin and made up girls had a decrease in self esteem and overall mood compared to the group shown natural pictures Facts 40% of girls 9 and 10 years old have tried to lose weight
at age 13, 53% of American girls are unhappy with their bodies and goes up to 78% by the time girls reach seventeen
37% of articles in teen girl magazines include a focus on appearance, and half the ads appeal to beauty to sell their products
56% of commercials aired during popular TV shows use beauty as an appeal to females to buy their product and only 3% used beauty aimed at men shows like ANTM show girls that this is what you need to look like to be pretty School and the Media Students rely too much on the internet for answers and don't think that actually knowing or learning the information is important anymore
Students that check social media sites like Facebook and Instagram while studying, show reduced academic performance. Social media is a distraction to students.
Students lose the skill of good communication. when there main form of communication is via Facebook or texting, when put into a face-to-face situation, they don't know how to communicate effectively Social Media/Internet Social media doesn't practice proper grammar and uses many shortcuts. Students write in class the way they do online or rely on spell check to fix their paper when they mess up.
Kids forget that everything they post online is public and can be seen by anyone. Many colleges look at these things before accepting a student. What you put online today can effect you down the road in life. Conclusion Television Television can affect teen violence
it shows violence as acceptable and a way to solve a problem
body image is unrealistic on TV shows and cuts down girl's self esteem
sex is portrayed as fun and an every day activity
the consequences of unsafe sex are rarely shown on television
Video Games video games desensitize kids to violence
killing other people is rewarding in video games
Magazines Sex is a main topic in many magazines that young teens read
Body image in magazines is false and makes girls believe this is normal
more than half the articles in magazines are based on beauty or sex
Social Media/Internet social media distracts kids at school
the internet gets kids away from real communication
students rely too much on the internet for information and answers
Media negatively affects teens
it ruins their body image and how they perceive the world
