We cannot write essays for you on eNotes, but perhaps we can help you think about what to write and how to write it.

First, you should decide whether you want violence to be a cause or an effect (or both) in your essay.  Next, you will need to think about what causes and/or effects of violence you want to talk about.  It may be useful to reverse the steps in this process.  You might want to think about what the causes and effects of violence are.  Then, if you cannot (for example) think of enough effects of violence, you can make violence be the effect and then explore its causes.

For some causes of violence, consider the following.  Violence might be caused by poor parenting.  It might be caused by excessive exposure to violence in TV shows and video games.  It might be caused by the culture of the people who commit violent acts.  It might be caused by frustration on the part of people who cannot get ahead in society.  All of these are potential causes of violence.

For some effects of violence, consider the following.  It might cause a lack of trust among members of a society.  It might cause more racism if people of one race feel that the other race is more likely to be violent.  It might cause people in violent neighborhoods to have lower life chances if they are, for example, afraid to go to school.

Now, start to write your essay.  Pick a few causes and/or effects and explain their links to violence as clearly as you can. 

Essay on Violence As A Social Problem

649 Words3 Pages

Violence is a social problem that increases over the years. Violence is not so much shown in magazines and books as it is on television and the media. This does not mean that violence on television is the only source for aggressive or violent behavior, but it is a significant contributor. Children can also pick up violence from a parent or guardian at an early age. Peers are important in a child’s life. It has been psychologically proven that males are more aggressive than females. Therefore, if a child’s peers are being aggressive, their actions tend to be imitated.

     American children watch an average of three to four hours of television daily, which can be a powerful influence in developing value systems…show more content…

Some people fail to see that they are being imitated and looked upon as a role model from those younger than them. If a babysitter is listening to music that contains violent lyrics or profanity, they should not be shocked if the child copies it. Parents’ arguments are also taken in by the child. Parents should try not to show violence towards each other when around a child. They should also disapprove of the violent episodes in front of the children, stressing the belief that such behavior is not the best way to resolve a problem.

     A child’s peers mean a lot to their attitude whether one wants to believe it or not. It blends in with their need to fit in. Popularity is what one hopes and dreams for during their teenage years. Therefore, children try to duplicate others actions. This factor may tend to lead to racial or sexual stereotyping consequently making the child believe that anyone different from these characteristics should be punished. This takes the child into the stage of what type of music to listen to as spoken about before.

     Everyday we are all caught in a losing battle, the challenge of our society to preserve safety for children and protect them from violence and guns. The facts are that violence is everywhere, it is impossible to ignore them. It even seems as though no one recognized this as their problem
