Kids that grow in an environment surrounded by violence also become violent. If a kid sees his dad hitting his mom he/ she will thing that it is ok to hit others. And they will imitate that behavior. Parents who punch and yelled at their children are only setting up a pattern. And violence only brings more violence. Kids should grow in an environment where they are treated with respect and with love.
First of all congrats for having dealt with such a hard decision without using physical violence. This situation made me realized that you used something we call the ABC model without even knowing. I want to show you how you were able to use the model. I was glad that he used a technique without even knowing, which can help him realize that he can react differently not just in an angry way. So I want to break down this particular situation. This way you can get a visual of how the ABC model works. I want to show you how you were able to use this model. It can help you approach situations differently in the future. Have you heard about this model before? I think it’s very important to ask inmates about previous knowledge or information they

Children need to be exposed to violence to understand it and to help prevent violent outbursts later on in life. Awareness is everything in this century, so better to prepare your children than to let them only experience violence when something bad happens. Violence is thanks to the human race and it is something that will be in our lives forever or until we can find peace within ourselves, so better have the knowledge than to be
Kids growing in today world are full of violence. Kids bullying kids, make them unhappy depressed and to the point of taking their own life. Kids getting abuse at home or domestic violence is taking place with the parents, making the kids lash out with frustration and angry , and taking it out on innocent people. This has to stop as well. You would think kids that that grow up in that type of hostile situation the kids who grow up to be total opposite. But that not true. As a matter of fact, more kids who grow up in that type of situation would more than likely grow up in that same situation or worse. Majority of these rebellious children grew up in home with violence, witnessing violent acts, and it is almost certain that child will adapt the same tendency to engage in violent acts. Growing up in a violent home can set patterns for children … patterns that can cause them to commit violence and abuse, and continue the cycle of violence and abuse (Love Our Children
Relational aggression (RA) is defined as nonphysical behaviors that aim to deliberately cause harm to another individual by destroying relationships, harming social status or self-esteem, or public embarrassment (Crick, Werner, Casas, O’Brien, Nelson, Grotpeter, & Markon, 1999). Examples include behaviors such as purposely ignoring a peer, spreading rumors, creating undesirable

Walking down your stairs as a 6 year old, you hear a loud powerful smack like a shockwave. Screaming, crying, and objects shattering as you watch your parents engage in a fight. Violence is an ongoing issue that has drastically mutated our course of living, which emotionally corrupts the mind,
This is not to say that the parents are bad parents or stupid, they just do not realize that children can pick up on things at a young age as they watch them. As parents they should monitor what they do around their children, so that the child does not have to learn bad habits. If the children does happen to do something bad they should take the necessary course of action to make sure that the child knows that the act is bad and should tell them the right course of action. Showing your children the way of life and how it should be lived could positively affect their growth as they mature into teenagers and eventually adults. Now I know everyone is not perfect and we may fail to be a perfect role model, but at least try to keep the negativity to a bare minimum around the child. Parental guidance is always necessary in life. As parents you have experienced the things that the child may be going through and can relate to them on matters because you have been there. I believe if more parents were to talk to their children and try to blend it into being their child’s best friend the problem with aggression can seize itself because every learned action can be unlearned.
According to the SIP model, the attention and interpretation biases are specifically associated with reactive aggression. For example, a number of studies showed that reactive aggressive behaviour in children is related to biased attention and biased interpretation (step 1 and 2 in the model) (de Castro, Merk, Koops, Veerman,
If we want to reduce violent crime we must understand why these crimes occur. According to biological and psychological Biological and psychological theories perhaps begin to explain why some individuals are more likely than others to commit deviance,
The sociopolitical conditions that serve to perpetuate the forms of violent behaviors outside the home are women interpreting that the violent behavior of their husbands or intimate partners is justifiable or excusable. They will make excuses to family members and friends to hide what he or she is doing to her, and to make her home seem as if it’s perfect. Some women may use an excuse of their husband or intimate partner being mentally ill and don’t know any better. Some don’t want to get law enforcement involved, because it will lead to an arrest and they may lose their job, which means more problems at the house. Religious beliefs can perpetuate a form of violence outside the home also(Humphrey & Schmalleger,2012). Spouses believe that their
Today violence has become an every day experience in life. Playing video games or turning on the television, and flipping through the channels at random, you will most likely stumble upon various forms of violence. Does it desensitize or help us tolerate violence? And the most controversial issue, does it cause violence?
Violence take multiple forms, many of which are covered in the nightly news. Murder, rape, familial abuse, bullying, workplace hostility, armed robbery—all of these are societal problems with far-reaching repercussions. There have long debates and discussions regarding whether nature or nurture influences individual violent behavior. People are concerned about what makes an individual to engage in violent behavior such murder or burglary among other types of crimes. They are also concerned about what makes people stop such behavior. However, there is no precise conception whether nature, nurture or both influence violence. Some people assume that, violent behavior results from individual’s life experiences or upbringing also known as nurture. Others feel that violent behavior is more complex and results from individual’s genetic character or nature. In other words, it is not clear whether violent behavior is inborn or occurs at some point in persons’ lives, but even it’s hard, emphasizing one and ignoring other influences is always an unwise way to go.
The nature versus nurture debate is an ongoing debate among social scientists relating to whether ones personality/personal characteristics are the result of his/her inherited genetic traits or the result of environmental factors such as upbringing, social status, financial stability, and more. One of the topics that are discussed among psychologists is the study of violent behavior among people as a whole, and in particular, individuals. Social scientists try to explain why people commit acts of violence through explanation of either side of the nature or nurture schools of thought. However, the overwhelming amount of research done into the relation of violent behavior and the nature versus nurture debate indicated that nurture is the primary explanation to explaining violent behavior because violent traits are learned from adults, someone’s social upbringing is a major factor to why some people are more violent than others, and finally influences from news media, movies, and video games enhance the chance for someone to exhibit violent behavior. In conclusion, violent behavior is a complex issue without a clear explanation that is overwhelmingly supported by the nurture side of the debate.
