Turning aggressors back into innocents

Switch from "Diehard 1" or 2 or 3 or 4 to "Rugrats."  It's as easy as one-two-three.  At least that's what a recent report has found, according to The New York Times.

The study published Monday has found that changing a young TV watcher's viewing habits can possibly change the child's behavior from violent to benign, the story said. Not sure this would have helped Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook mass murderer, but apparently the analysis found that "the experiment reduced the children’s aggression toward others, compared with a group of children who were allowed to watch whatever they wanted," as reported by Catherine Saint Louis.

Low-income boys showed the most improvement, according to the story, though it wasn't clear why.
