YOUTH VIOLENCE EDUCATIONAL BOOKS AND VIDEOS
Many individuals relate youth or teen violence to school shootings but teen
violence includes many other activities including fighting, vandalism, crime,
and gang violence. Unfortunately, the victims of teen violence are usually other
youths. These individuals harm the victims and their families, themselves, their
parents and society as a whole.
Violent behavior usually starts among
children and adolescents. Youth violence
needs to be carefully understood by
parents, teachers, and other adults.
Children as young as preschoolers can be
violent while many parents mistakenly
dismiss this behavior as a growing
phase. Child violence can include
behaviors such as physical aggression,
explosive temper tantrums,
bullying, homicidal thoughts,
fire setting, vandalism, cruelty toward
animals, and use of weapons.
As children grow up to become teens, youth
violence can become more serious and
dangerous. Some factors that attribute to
teen violence are previous aggression or
violent behavior, being a victim of physical
or sexual abuse, exposure to violence in
their environment and the media, genetic
factors, use of drugs and alcohol, and
access to weapons.. Gang violence among
teens and teenagers exposed to violent
environments are a serious concern.
Teenagers who are in this situation are
subject to being shot at, stabbed, or beaten
to death. Teens that are involved in gangs
are likely to commit violence towards other
people, possibly even killing them. The
longer the teen is in this type of
environment, the more violent they may
