Most of the teens prefer to watch a movie or drama at home on “Netflix” rather than going out to watch the same thing in cinema. The worst fears of Hollywood includes one thing more which is the decreasing demography of youth to consume entertainment from cinemas. The other factors are online video streaming and verity of other plat forms such as exposure of the content at smart phone, the down loading apps, so everything is there to deviate people from cinemas and let them to be at home. According to a website “COS”, “Paramount Pictures” a few time back changed few things. What they did was that they started
Television can not influenced all of us, but it can definitely influence young children, who are, “curious and easily influenced. They tend to mimic and repeat what they hear and see on television without knowing of right and wrong” (Simmons 149). These influences depend on what kinds of shows children are watching. Parents are the one controlling theirs children, but without parental supervision children will watch what pleases them; that is were the problem lies. For example, if a child is watching a movies that contain violent acts, that can have some bad side effects.
Violent Video Games and the Effects on the Youth Today our world is surrounded by technology and new inventions that make our lives better. Some of the most popular of hobbies among children and teenagers are video games, but what many people don’t know is that they are bad for them. Violent video games in particular have been proven to not be appropriate for the age groups that play them and to have a negative effect on school, social behavior, and increase aggression. Kids who play violent video games are influenced to ignore the consequences of violence. Anne Harding from CNN says that “when your exposed to violence day in and day out, it loses its emotional impact on you” (web).
In recent studies by American Psychological Association (APA) and Brown University that violent video games like shooters can boost children's learning, health, and social skills (washingtonpost). Many parents tell their kids “playing video games will rot your brain.” This is not true because APA researched and tested out kids playing violent video games and found that kids who play violent video games can improve a range of cognitive skills in their abilities ( Washington Post). A Category that is considered the most violent video games are shooter games.

The Effect of Hollywood on Youth “We have got to quit fooling around with this. I know this stuff sells, but that doesn’t make it right” (Clinton). Bill Clinton is right about this. Some movies have so much action in them that kids are becoming violent because they have watched too many bad movies. Some parents are even letting their little kids watch rated R movies, when they are supposed to be seventeen to watch them, even though they can teach you to do good things.
One in particular is when at home, you have the convenience of being able to pause, fast forward and rewind a movie whenever you want. That is such a benefit in my household.

Just remember the amount of time your children are watching TV, regardless of content, should be moderated because it decreases time spent on more beneficial activities such as reading, playing with friends, and developing hobbies.

I feel that society has placed the blame on these mediums for the violent acts, however serious or trivial, that children commit way too easily, before they even begin to examine the parenting of today’s society. Television, movies, and video games are not the primary causes for acts of violence and other crimes committed by kids. They are only singled out due to the violent images and plots that they depict which leads one to believe that since children view these violent scenes they will imitate unconditionally for lack of better judgment. When a kid commits a violent act, the crime is often blamed on the television program that the child watched, the movies the child saw, or the video game the child just played. But if one were to actually go about censoring television shows, cartoons should be censored first.
If movies are so bad for children, wouldn't it be easy to just not allow children to see "violent" movies? This seems to be a simple solution, but one that cannot work for many reasons. The main reason is, mainstream movies that do well in the box office tend to air on public television. "We now view movies on television replete with graphic sickening violence. Some television stations now show these movies in the early evening, when children could be watching"(Raising PG Kids in an X-Rated Society Tipper Gore 60).

Parents can limit the amount of television their child watches, and by simply doing that, their child’s behavior would change to being less aggressive. Along with the violence in television, people around the world are also becoming extremely dependent on technology and this would greatly increase in the future, for the simple fact that human’s believe technology makes everything easier.
