Explain how observing and experiencing violence can cause a person to become apathetic.

A: Observing and experiencing violence can often make a person insensitive to others who might be in harmful and potentially dangerous situations. For example, children who frequently observe teasing might consider the behavior as normal. When teasing becomes common, it is easier to be apathetic, or unconcerned, of others who have been hurt.
