I have a lot of difficulty dealing with hostile mobs. How can I prevent hostile mobs from spawning?

@Wolf Is english a second language for you? I cant understand what your asking in this comment. – Ender Jan 16 '12 at 7:10
oh i am speaking english – Wolf Jan 16 '12 at 15:19
@Wolf You want the wolves to remain friendly even if you hit them in the game? Are you hitting them on purpose, or do are you having difficulty with accuracy? I dislike dealing with mobs, too, so I play on peaceful, but even then, you can't get rid of the danger. Even without any critters, there's still the risks of falling, burning and drowning to contend with. – user15636 Feb 17 '12 at 20:02
This probably should make some mention of lighting. – Ullallulloo Jun 25 '13 at 18:15

I heard lighting torches in caves scares the monsters away.

illumination prevents mobs spawning there, but it doesn't stop them from walking there from darker places – Zommuter Jan 15 '12 at 21:40

Set to Peaceful. Small slimes and the Aether's Zephyrs will remain, though.
