This is of related... we have very few battery-operated toys and certainly no books that sing songs or light up or anything like that. When we go to someone's house that has toys or books that move and make noise, my daughter can get really freaked out.
Unfortunately, when she sees TV or a movie, she gets completely absorbed in it,
|One of the movies we had lined up for our homebirth to entertain her during that critical time was Heffalump (a Winnie the Pooh movie . I was shocked when I realized it showed Pooh and all his cohorts trying to beat off the elephant with sticks and stones. They were unrelenting! My daughter was beside herself!!! She could NOT understand why they were trying to hurt an elephant. Either could I. But she watched the whole thing -- it was gripping to her.|

I think that like anything, some sensitivity is organic and some is environmental.
There were very sensitive kids long before anyone watched tv, as well as kids like mine who aren't so much. I honestly don't think having a television has even the smallest correlation to empathy or sensitivity.
