Kids games and the repercussions , so many people today are of the opinion that the violent games that kids play on the internet lead to the kids growing up as violent kids . Only problem is that several studies have shown conclusively this is not the case , so if that is not the reason for so much violence in the kids today then what is ? The first reason I put forward is lack of parental control , parents do not discipline their kids at all any more , kids grow up knowing they can do what they want when they want and have what they want . How did this awful situation come to be ? Can tell you in two words ” political correctness ” since this insidious thing was forced upon society things have gone from bad to worse , parents are not game to discipline the kids for fear of the authorities , so what else can they do ? We should not be in too big a hurry to lay blame till we know all the truth .
So then having discounted violent video games what then ? A lot is just down to the lack of discipline but not all of it by a long shot. A lot of it can be put down to peer pressure at school at uni or wherever they get their education from . No amount of parental control can stop peer pressure the kids become too scared of of those exerting the pressure to go against them . Then of course as they get older and start going out at nights there is a whole nother world of peer pressure , do what we say or you will be an out cast and who wants that when your just growing up becoming an adult ? No young person male or female wants to be what’s considered a loner or Johnny no mates , so will willingly go along with the crowd to be in what they think is the ” In Crowd ” They will do almost anything to not be called an outcast not be left out of what they see as all the fun things , things that you cannot do alone .
One of the other big reasons for kids turning out violent is when they start on the drugs and alcohol , they start on this path to destruction and violence because of the peer pressure , because it is un cool not to do these things when all their mates are doing it , and if they are then why not them ? They are too young , too inexperienced to know better and feel that they have to because everyone else is doing it , so they slowly start the experimental phase , oh its all ok they do it and they are fine so I will be too . The only problem with this line of thinking is that not everyone is ok , some even die as a result of these experiments , if not they end up either disabled for life or in jail for years . The most vicious of the things these kids get into now is the ” one punch ” so many innocent kids have died or been maimed because of these and the ones doing it are jailed for years , thereby ruining so many other lives . People say why don’t they stop and think before they punch ? Seriously is someone tanked up on booze and or alcohol in any state to stop and think ? I don’t think so , do you ?
So after all this we can see hopefully that it is not the video games it is not the parents , it is the growing up without any real discipline , the ones to blame are the authorities who stepped in where they had no right to and and ruined life for so many . Kids soon learned they could do what they want and if parents tried to stop them they reported them to police , end of parental control right there no matter what the parents wanted , they were effectively neutralised in one blow. So before we blame anyone we need to look close and see what’s behind it all , not too many bother doing this they just get mad and blame all the wrong people and things , about the only thing parents really need to do to try and help is try and get the kids outside to play and or enjoy the wonderful outdoors , kids spend too much time attached to gadgets , they never go out any more unless they have to so they miss out on so much .
It is not the video games that is the problem society itself has done it , governments doing what they should not do and us as a community on the whole sitting back and letting them do it . Some people are born with violence in them and will be that way no matter what we do , but those thankfully are few and far between. Kids born before the advent of video games still turned out violent at times , so as the studies show it is not the video games , they do nothing except keep them glued inside so they will not go out unless forced …. Respect too died when the discipline did , no one has respect for anyone these days , it goes with the discipline hand in glove.
