ABSTRACT

In the present world, there are more than plenty reasons for anxiety. The 21st century witnesses anxiety level of the general masses akin to those of asylum patients of the last few centuries. The present study was conducted to assess anxiety level in school children who watch violent serials and to assess the anxiety level in school children who do not watch violent serials. Sample of 40 children was taken, who took the test- in those 20 children who watch violent serials and 20 who do not. The sample was collected irrespective of their gender. Results indicated that those children, who frequently watched violent television shows, were more anxious regarding academic related tasks as compared to those who did not watch such shows.PK
