The influence of violence in the media on adolescents and the family
; University of Zadar, Department of pedagogy
The topic of this paper is deeply rooted in actual problems of postmodern society that is markedby unprecedented development of information and communication technology. Through newmedia especially internet, bloggs, video games etc. the communication that develops, links theworld of the change and innovation. That world exactly, is the world where we witness the newneeds of the young generation. That need although appears as something already seen: a need forinformation, innovation, communication pleasure, now has a double meaning. On one hand itturns unimportant to important, unknown to well known, that supports the educational process,but on the another hand it promotes violence. This allows us to point to the importance of themedia education and family education.In the here and now, the media which is one of the most important agents of socialization,influences family as a whole as well as its members. The parents should be supported to retaintheir role as educators.Keeping in mind that media violence is seen through indoctrination, lie, discrimination, insultsand racial and gender segregation, that the youngsters encounter daily; we can see that throughuncontrolled exposure to such violence the youngsters are loosing their personal values andqualities in the long run.Our argument is that one of the possibilities for preventing too much exposure to media violence,is media education and family education.
