My son and I have some of the most interesting discussions. It’s amazing what kids notice when you don’t present it to them first. We were having are usual afternoon chat when he pointed this out. His one friend who has no video games and is not allowed to watch anything with violence of any sort, is the nicest friend he has. Interesting isn’t it? Perhaps all those studies were right.
Don’t get me wrong, I love video games and I’m pretty darn good at some of them. I do not however allow things like Grand Theft Auto into my home and I’m shocked to find little kids playing a game and glorifies violence and killing and devalues women. As adults we are going to have to become the boss again and learn to say no if we ever want society to turn around from the violent greedy place it has become.
That’s my little ditty for the day.
