There is perhaps no bigger or more important issue in America at present than youth violence. Jonesboro Paducah Pearl, Mississippi Stamps, Arkansas Conyers, Georgia and, of course, Littleton, Colorado. 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 'smurder trainers's by one expert), the TV networks, and the Hollywood movie studios the people responsible for the fact that children often witness literally hundreds 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'ss youth. And, most important, it is a blueprint for us all on how that can be achieved. Dave Grossman is the author of 'sOn Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society's. As a West Point psychology professor and professor of military science, Grossman trains medical and health professionals on how to deal with and prevent killing. He trained mental health professionals in the aftermath of the Jonesboro shootings, and has been an expert witness and consultant in several murder cases, including that of Timothy McVeigh and Michael Carneal. Gloria DeGaetano is a nationally recognized educator in the field of media violence, and the author of the critically acclaimed Screen Smarts: A Family Guide to Media Literacy. - Introduction - 'sObservations from Jonesboro, Arkansas's by Lt.
