Violence and Video Games

Posted: Updated:

The Supreme Court recently ruled against a California law that would have banned selling violent video games to children.  That ruling just reinforces the fact that parents have to monitor what their kids are allowed to play.  Researchers from Iowa State University did three different studies and found that kids who played even mildly violent video games became more verbally and physically aggressive.  Doctors say the kids aren't just releasing aggression, they're practicing aggression which is something they use, once they get good at it.  That's why experts say it is so important that parents are very vigilant when it comes to the games they allow their kids to play.  If you have questions about the games your kids are interested in playing, you should go online and research the games.  There are many reputable websites that offer complete reviews of nearly every game available.
