i totally agree with you teedoff. our society has constantly over time moved to the idea that video games and video content are responsible for everything. we need to start taking responsibility for raising the youth in our society and stop looking for asonine exuses. pawning off responsibility does nothing to actively combat these issues

I just wish the study was about more than just video games and tv. When us "old *****" played cowboys and Indians, it was simulated violence and I think our generation grew up pretty well. Why has there been no real study regarding lack of discipline given to kids or lack of discipline options leveled on us by our "We know best" government. Parents are trying to be their kids buddy instead of their parent and that is a problem. I have also seen too many instances of parents negotiating with their kids instead of simply laying down the law. And yes, Sen. Rockefeller will be sorely missed.
