THE INFLUENCE OF MUSIC AND MUSIC VIDEOS
No. 40 (Updated MAY-16-2010)

Unfortunatley, only a relatively small amount of research has focused on the impact of music or music videos with violennt or antisocial themes. Randomized experiments indicate that exposure to violent or antisocial rap videos can increase aggressive thinking, but no research has yet tested how such exposure directly affects physical aggression.

As always, pay close attention to what your children listen to and what music videos they watch. They look to you for guidance and will listen to you when you suggest that certain music isn't appropriate. Obvioulsy, this is easier to do when your child is young, but it's never too late to take a proactive approach to raising your child!
