CMCH Synopsis: Researchers observed over 550 children when they were ages 6 to 10; then observed them again in their early 20's. Very detailed notes of the children were taken, including how aggressive they were according to their teachers and peers as well as how much television they watched. The study found that the adults with the most aggressive behaviors were the same children that watched a lot of media violence and who believed that television programs reflected reality.
