Your field note describes a very interesting event involving Alex.
How did you come to think that media/film may have contributed to Alex's acting out? Why do you think that Alex's acting out a strangulation is something negative and not entertaining?
Your observation raises an important question about the forms, roles, and functions of play in children's development (e.g, understanding reality).
