It’s common for parents to wonder whether regular exposure to violent acts in the news can influence their children. That concern is why some parents shield their kids from continuous coverage of school shootings, and why advocacy groups issue regular reports about the damaging qualities of violence in the media. But research suggests parents should be less worried about what children are watching and more concerned with what they’re posting on social media – and who’s “liking” it.
