Art and the philosophy of life

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis soldier is a child’s TOY.  We TEACH VIOLENCE and WAR and don’t often think about it.  Children are around when the news is on, when people talk…they hear and see violence as a way of life.  It’s on TV, it’s in their SCHOOLS, on the playgrounds.  It’s everywhere.

  1. Yes and it baffles me why so many parents, like sheep, just follow the trends, buy their children the toys and let them watch movies and programs filled with violence. They think it has no effect on them? I am a preschool teacher and can verify that it does. Desensitization, lack of empathy and social skills are huge problems….don’t get me started!
    Thanks so much for posting this!! 🙂

    • I know exactly what you are saying and I agree completely. You used a very important word, “DESENSITIZATION.” It happens in other areas of life as well. Thank you so much for your comment. You are in the trenches right now and I don’t know why people refuse to believe that those things absolutely DO have a negative effect.
