If children are exposed multiple times a day to multiple forms of aggressive behavior, it makes the learning process more difficult. Basically, children develop a much higher threshold for what they perceive to be acceptable aggressive behavior if they are exposed to it regularly. The idea of a high tolerance for aggressive behavior makes it difficult for parents to influence children differently, especially if they have engaged in similar aggressive behavior that the child has observed. Children will have a difficult time picking who is the better influence and may lead them to more punishment over time (Beresin,
