Profanity in Media/TV affecting Children

An educational study recently concluded and published by TIME magazine states that children who are exposed to profanity on television are much more likely to show negative consequences. What a shocker, but it is nice to see evidence of what many of us already believe.

“Using statistical models, the researchers calculated that exposure to profanity had about the same relationship to aggressive behavior as exposure to violence on TV or in video games. In addition, they found that the more children were exposed to profanity, they more likely they were to use swear words themselves, and those who used profanity were more likely to become aggressive toward others.”
