Parents often get a bad rap when it comes to video games. If they aren't complaining about how violent games are and then ignorantly buying their children the same games in the quest for pacifism, they're on a crusade to get their children to go outside and enjoy the real world. However, nothing you've seen, heard, or read before will prepare you for the latest parental concern regarding video games.
National Public Radio posted a commentary from Kelly McBride, a concerned parent, regarding her children's frequent use of the Wii. Rather than relishing the fact that the new toy has them off the couch and swinging their arms, Kelly worries that her children are equating the game version of the sports with the real-life counterpart; that is to say, the children are gaining "a false sense of what it's like to compete in the world."
