Abstract
In this article the authors present research findings indicating that the consumption of violent media contributes to youthful aggression. The authors also suggest that recreational facility administrators take steps to deal with this problem. Strategies for developing a coherent approach to regulating media content are discussed including educating youthful users of recreational facilities, and monitoring and evaluating media policies.
