How so? Video games are not reality and someone mentally healthy understands that.<quoted text>
I try real hard not to mention video games. I deeply believe they've a had a huge hand in the way the youth are being desensitize.
I still think meds are really really ...really bad for our children.
I also realize Wiki isn't fact, but will point this out. Is out there:
"The massacre sparked debate over gun control laws, the availability of firearms within the United States and gun violence involving youths. Much discussion also centered on the nature of high school cliques, subcultures and bullying, in addition to the influence of violent movies and video games in American society. The shooting resulted in an increased emphasis on school security, and a moral panic aimed at goth culture, social outcasts, gun culture, the use of pharmaceutical anti-depressants by teenagers, teenage Internet use and violent video games."
milwaukee, do you have children? Have you raised children?
Have you worked with children? How much do you know about children?
Our society today is safer than any other time in history. Even so, many are constantly whining about not being safe.
There is one major difference between now and previous time in history. Our access to information in unprecedented. That tends to skew our view by making it appear we’re at greater risk.
On children today we shield them from failure. We tend to manage their lives with structure. We’re over protective and don’t allow them to experience life by trial and error. I feel bad for the children, they’re missing so much.
