While reading a second article from the same publisher, several important ideas were brought up. Before I get into the details, I first want to state that I agree with the fact that there should be restrictions on the games kids play. These facts may seem like common sense, but they can’t be over-looked. Children are, by definition, vulnerable and immature. “They haven’t fully learned to make decisions that are healthy for them. And, by extension, we’ve decided as a culture on a group of things that are unhealthy for children. These include alcohol, tobacco and X-rated movies”. I think that Is an excellent point, we already have several restrictions on what children under the age of 21 can do, why is restricting overly inappropriate video games any different?
