Everybody knows that late at night children want to see their favorite shows on Cartoon Network just as much as they want to see them during the day. But, late at night, on the same channel as Cartoon Network, Adult Swim comes on. Adult Swim is obviously a program not suited for children and should be switched to a different channel. It should be switched to a channel that is not viewed by as many children such as Comedy Central, TBS or maybe ABC.

It's true, some children are easily influence by television and other media. If they see this horrid behavior on TV they might just try to act it out in various ways. I know parents care about their children's future, but they are completely unaware of the misleading children's shows that change to inappropriate shows at night. Parents of young children should listen to this ideal way of solving this problem.

Studies show that long-term childhood exposure to acts of violence on television shows is a major cause of homicides, assaults and other violent actions. Topics showing this type of behavior and violence may scare children and sometimes influence them to sometimes act out what they see on TV.
