I dont understand how showing Itchy and Scratchy helps the kids stay away from violence. It most likely makes it look fun for the kids.

One must love our education system. Don't these parents remember what it was like for them during drivers training when they were forced to view the "gore and awe" movie about irresponsible driving?

Shock and awe isn't the way to go, sit down, explain to the kids and bam, they will begin to understand.

I'd say in regards to drinking and driving or even irresponsible driving it at least is true. When it comes to games and kids being shown how to stay from violence is a bad idea, it worries me that it will make violence seem cool, especially from GTA IV.
