Over 3,000 medical and sociological studies in the last 50 years have PROVEN CONCLUSIVELY that children are adversely affected by exposure to media violence; yet millions of parents allow their children to watch violent programs, go to violent R-rated movies, and spend hours role-playing in very violent and graphic video games. (see studies)

In October 2014, another study has been released confirming that there is a broad consensus that violent media leads to increased aggression in children.

While the PTC believes that parents have the greatest responsibility of the viewing habits of their children,  join tens of thousands of moms, dads, grandparents and regular Americans to hold entertainment and advertising accountable for what they produce and sponsor.
