    Some violent programs affect children's behavior in a wrong way.


    Do some violent programs affect children's behavior in a good way?

    According to a survey, children who live in violent envrionments have more chance to commit crimes.
    Do you mean they have more opportunities to commit a crime or that they have a greater likelihood of committing a crime?
