  •  what do the kids do when they are alone? (0+ / 0-)

    As a grandmother, former teacher and social worker, I worry a lot about all the kids in our Country who spend way too much time alone with video games as their mentors and companions. I do believe that what kids absorb in those long hours of video murders and assaults either makes them numbed to other human beings, and/or distorts their sympathies and ability to empathize with others. I know this is not a popular idea, but I think violent games are a cause of sickness and well as a symptom of the adoration of violence in our culture.
