You Can't Fix Bad Parenting

The ESRB tells parents what isn't appropriate for kids. People tell parents what isn't appropriate for kids. What does it take to get it through to these people? (Culture, ESRB, Mortal Kombat 9, PS3)

The picture is misleading btw.

Not really. It's a picture from the article that's from the ESRB about game ratings and picking the right ones for kids. It's fitting seeing as some parents don't bother reading the ratings or don't care at all (bad parenting), which the article is about.

Violent games do not make kids crazy.
Mental Illness makes kids crazy.
Let them play Mortal Kombat it's not like they're gonna go outside and try to rip each others heads off.

I remember the old days when WWF came on the TV in New Zealand years and years ago.
Many a cloths line and powerdrive was delivered on a kid after that.
Kids if young enough will try and replicate what they see, so I do think parents need to control what they have access to.

If a kid is going to go crazy, there are a hell of a lot more important factors to that than videogames; upbringing, social exclusion, bullying, excessive stress and all sorts of other things are far, far bigger contributors to mental illness than videogames could ever be.

Bad parenting is about how you educate your kid understanding the world around him and videogames only will help him grow smarter.

Maybe there´s certain games a kid shouldnt play but that really depends on the kid.
