Kids are surrounded by Super Heroes in movies, t.v., comics and all the way down to their underwear. A new study says that might not be so good.

A new study says that kids are picking up on the violence but not learning the good lessons. This kind of comes as no surprise to me, but we'll get to that later. First, some facts. The study says kids may actually like the fact that the superheroes are kicking ass more than the fact that they're fighting for truth, justice, and the American way.  For instance, one kid responded that Captain America was his favorite superhero "because he can kill".

The experts say you should serve up the superheroes in moderation and let's be real, it wouldn't hurt to tell you "why" these heroes are fighting too.  Maybe, just maybe, if you told your kid the only time they should fight is to protect themselves or others, then they won't poke other kids in the eye for no reason.

Personally, I think this is all part of childhood that just comes uncorked at that age. When I was in 5th grade our school had a Karate demonstration. Do you wanna guess what the next recess was like? It was pure mayhem. Everybody was getting karate chops to the neck and sidekick nutshots. It was war next to the tetherball poles I tell you.

So, what did we learn from all of this?  Don't let the movies, t.v., or comic books raise your children. If you put in a word or two, things should work out.
