by Gloria Degaetano,Dave Grossman


Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano offer incontrovertible evidence . This book is so important for parents of children of all ages.

This book is so important for parents of children of all ages.

Their book is a much-needed call to action for every parent, teacher, and citizen to help our children and stop the wave of killing and violence gripping America's youth. And, most important, it is a blueprint for us all on how that can be achieved.

Start by marking Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill: A Call .

Start by marking Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill: A Call to Action Against TV, Movie & Video Game Violence as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. This book doesn't even attempt to explain that phenomena, and with that regard, they've done a very poor job pinning America's problem with violence solely on entertainment. Although every chapter of Stop Teaching Our Kids To Kill is incredibly important, I recommend jumping right into Chapter Three – Murder, Torture, Brutality: Dangerous Games, and Chapter Four – The Story I Tell Myself About Myself.

Preface: Prior to reading this book, I heard Lt. Col. Grossman saw a Youtube video about the warrior training given . I was not aware to find out that this book was a call to action against media violence, including video games. Grossman saw a Youtube video about the warrior training given to law enforcement & US militar. As someone who cherish video games growing up, playing occasional violent games, and even writing a freshman English paper with the thesis, videogames does not cause an increase in violence, I approach the book with significant bias. To my surprise, it was well-written, and communicated effectively.

I wanted to give parents, professionals, and policy makers a comprehensive guide for understanding how the prolific use of sensational violence in television, movies, and in video games affects kids' attitudes and actions. The book includes the new brain science to understand how media violence affects children and adolescents, along with risk factors that put kids in danger of imitating media violence more readily and the protective factors that immunize kids from media violence's harmful effects.

Completely revised and updated, a much-needed call to action for every parent, teacher, and citizen to help our children and stop the wave of killing and violence gripping America's youth. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano believe the root cause is the steady diet of violent entertainment kids see on TV, in movies, and in the video games they play-witnessing hundreds of violent images a day.

There is perhaps no bigger or more important issue in America at present than youth violence. Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora: We know them all too well, and for all the wrong reasons: kids, some as young as eleven years old, taking up arms and, with deadly, frightening accuracy, murdering anyone in their paths.

There is perhaps no bigger or more important issue in America at present than youth violence. Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora: We know them all too well, and for all the wrong reasons: kids, some as young as eleven years old, taking up arms and, with deadly, frightening accuracy, murdering anyone in their paths. What is going on? According to the authors of Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill, there is blame to be laid right at the feet of the makers of violent video games (called "murder trainers" by one expert), the TV networks, and the Hollywood movie studios--the people responsible for the fact that children witness literally thousands of violent images a day.Authors Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano offer incontrovertible evidence, much of it based on recent major scientific studies and empirical research, that movies, TV, and video games are not just conditioning children to be violent--and unaware of the consequences of that violence--but are teaching the very mechanics of killing. Their book is a much-needed call to action for every parent, teacher, and citizen to help our children and stop the wave of killing and violence gripping America's youth. And, most important, it is a blueprint for us all on how that can be achieved.In Paducah, Kentucky, Michael Carneal, a fourteen-year-old boy who stole a gun from a neighbor's house, brought it to school and fired eight shots at a student prayer group as they were breaking up. Prior to this event, he had never shot a real gun before. Of the eight shots he fired, he had eight hits on eight different kids. Five were head shots, the other three upper torso. The result was three dead, one paralyzed for life. The FBI says that the average, experienced, qualified law enforcement officer, in the average shootout, at an average range of seven yards, hits with less than one bullet in five. How does a child acquire such killing ability? What would lead him to go out and commit such a horrific act?

This guy knows his stuff. He is a trainer and has written extensively about how violence effects adults as well as kids. Pay attention to what he is saying, especially in the context of our current cultural issues.

Excellent book. Thought provoking! Highly recommend this seller.

Even though some things are outdated in the book, I still found it very relevant to the current times. Perfect supplement for a paper about desensitization to violence in children :)

Fantastic read from a gifted instructor.

This book presents a very interesting hypothesis. That exposure to simulated violence in media and games causes our children to be more aggressive and willing to act it out. The concept is well developed through the book. Many anecdotal stories are offered as evidence as well as several studies in the book. The writing style is easy to follow and held my attention. Rigorous testing of this will be as interesting to follow.

The one negative note I had was the footnoting used. There is no specific footnoting per se but rather a generalized system for each chapter at the back of the book. In the chapters you won't find alphanumeric footnote marks to correlate the passages to the references. I did search the internet for the references and found many of the ones available online but it was a lot of work to make the correlations myself.

My names is Dr. John Byrnes and I am the President of the Center for Aggression Management. I have followed the lessons of Lt.Col. Dave Grossman over the past several years because I have found them to be on-target and, in many ways, the root of human behavior in children. As I apply my Aggression Management Skills to children I have found it essential to understand a child's perception of "the consequence of their actions" and what is their "moral motivation for doing-the-right-thing." It is these elements that distinguish between a child who can rationalize through their anger and frustration and those who, often without understand, find themselves pulling the trigger and killing other human beings. I would like to commend Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano for their well documented work and clear message.

This book tells it like it is. It is a reality check for parents who let their kids play video games day in and day out.
