本文主要讲在道德恐慌的背景下对孩子成长的影响，Benson & Charsley(2016)也提出了在道德恐慌的背景下，妇女和儿童是如何被抚养长大的。互联网以一种高度耸人听闻的方式呈现了谋杀和许多其他事件，这会让父母担心他们的孩子。过度保护也会对孩子的成长造成负面影响。正如Tartari(2016)和Marsh & Melville(2011)等作者所指出的，道德恐慌所引发的恐惧有时是真实存在的。它们在一定程度上是真实的。因此，语境和负责任的解释在这里起着重要的作用。特别是在恋童癖的案例中，多年来确实存在一些担忧(Marsh & Melville, 2011)。因此，不能完全拒绝互联网上的道德恐慌。本篇澳洲代写价格文章由澳洲论文通AssignmentPass辅导网整理，供大家参考阅读。
Benson & Charsley (2016) also present how women and children are targeted in the context of moral panics when it comes to how they are raised. The internet presents murder and many other instances in a highly sensationalized way that would make the parents fear for their children. A sense of overprotection would also lead to negative consequences in child’s growth. As authors like Tartari (2016) and Marsh & Melville (2011) argue the fears that moral panic induces are real at times. They are real to a certain extent. Therefore, context and responsible interpretation plays a major role here. Especially in the cases of pedophilia there are some real concerns identified over the years (Marsh & Melville, 2011). Hence, moral panics on the internet cannot be rejected outright.
As an example of a moral panic situation and the ensuring mayhem, consider the Sony PlayStation2 game “Rule of Rose”. It is about a character that goes on to reveal the horrors in an orphanage. Jennifer the main character is the one who would find her way from one horror to another to find what is run in the orphanage. When it was released, the first coverage of it was presented by the Italian news magazine Panorama (Petley et al., 2013). This was followed by a severe reaction from the Mayor of Rome who wanted a ban on the game. With time, UK newspapers published their condemnation of the game with the same sentiments. The EU and the industry in general took up the situation, and banned the game and the first regulation called the “European Observatory on Childhood and Minors” came to be set up. While it seemed that the moral panics ensued were exaggerated, the intent behind them was to protect children from getting the wrong idea about social institutions like an orphanage.
Moral panics have existed always. The moral panic situations have their roots in true incidents. Over time they tend to develop with a sense of urgency. They become so exaggerated that sometimes it is necessary to make up instant laws just to handle the situation. The new media has introduced its own version of moral panics. However, the truth is that the moral panic situation is indeed focused on the vulnerable population, similar to how it was before. They also have some sense of purpose and fact in them and hence have to be interpreted and applied contextually and responsibly. One cannot simply reject them.
