Violence on TV freaks me out

 
My parents watch a bunch of crime shows like Law and Order, NCIS and CSI. I have a feeling they’re affecting me. I imagine violence everywhere. It makes me afraid to go places and fall asleep. I think I need a psychologist. Do you?

 

Dear Traumatized,

I think you need to walk away from the television. Ask your parents to watch these shows in their bedroom or after you’re asleep. Even if they keep watching in the open, you don’t have to. I never watch scary shows—they spook me, too. By the way, real life is nowhere near as dangerous as TV makes it seem. You should be smart and sensible and safety-conscious, but you should not be paranoid. Still worried? Talk over your fears with your school counselor.
