Children and Teenagers have many forms of entertaining themselves. However, there is one popular form for entertaining children and teenagers and that is playing video games. There has been a huge debate that video games can influence a child or teenager’s behavior, more particular in a violent way. “Violent video games have been blamed for school shootings, increases in bullying, violence towards women, and other violent criminal behavior.” There were many studies conducted that researched if violent video games influence the players to act aggressive or violently. In contrast, there have been studies that stated that video games can help make you a better human being. There were studies done to observe effects on playing pro-social video games. It was concluded that the more they play, the more they learn and become helpful. At this moment, it’s up to the parents to watch over what video games their children play. Abstract Loyalties

I believe the parents have to do their job. if parents were to thoroughly explain these violent messages and discuss them and eventually challenge them, the kids will be able to cognitively think and create a rational reasoning as to why that specific violent act is wrong.
