It can show kids self defense and gun control there is a lot of argument behind gun control but guns don't kill people its the people behind the guns gun games show gun control like if you are hunter the hunting games are shooter but those games can help with gun control in the woods.
They will get over it because soon they will know games like fortnite, gta5 and call of duty and others are just fake and will not come to be, some people may think that the games cause problems but they do not so give it up if you don´t won´t your kid doing these thing then don´t let them it´s really simple
Repeated studies show that playing violent video games leads to decreased moral reasoning, increased externalizing (aggressive) behavior, and lowered empathy. A number of studies have shown otherwise, but these studies have low subject sizes (meaning it will have low accuracy) or results are particularly low in precision (a<90%). Basically, reports that are conclusive have shown negative effects, and reports that show no effects are inconclusive. If you do your research and still don't think violence has an effect on children, then you probably also believe you shouldn't vaccinate your children.
Violent video games cause behavior problems because. Violent video games have a huge impact on kids and teens, they show blood and you are trying to kill as many people as you can. When you play video games its usually going to be something with guns and war, in the real world that's all true. The world is all death and destruction, you don't want to create more. Violent video games are scary to some people, but they can get over the fear and see the world. That is my oppinion
Just because games can be violent does not mean that the one playing them are. They might get frustrated due to one part in the game, This might come out as a yell or some commonly used profanity but more times than not a kid would not get into a car and start running people over. The reason violent games are fun is because you get to do things you would not normally get to do. In the low possibility that someone does run people over because they saw it in a game, Then they are either going to be traumatized or have a serious mental problem that would come to light later on.
The reason I say this is because of how the video games themselves MAY cause short-term aggression, But that's not the game's fault, It's the parent's fault for allowing the child to buy the game and/or buying the game themselves.
Also, As I have seen with most serial killers, They have come from abusive parents, Not from video games themselves.
While it has definitely been proven by several studies that video games do cause short term aggression, they do not have an effect on long term, with gamers and non-gamers showing little difference in violence in the long term. The studies proving aggression are often flawed or inconclusive as well.
This is not true because if kids don't understand the content of the game they shouldn't be playing them. They're supposed to be mature enough to play and have a certain age. If you think this is true then your wrong because kids should know that what is a game is a game and its not the real world.
Violent parents have gotten the violent genes from their parents and pass these down to their children. Thus violent video games aren't the problem. Well I am a bit violent because of my mom. Oh god... Why did I say that? Anyways, back to the subject. I've played a lot of Legend of Zelda games and I'm not violent! -From a user.
This question presumes a cause between behaviors as set by nurturing conditions, when the truth is that individuals raised who play violent video games and with violent parents can still turn out non-violent. The cause of a violent disposition and tendency to have such behavioral problems is a cause lying in genetic predispositions (this is not to say that genes are destiny, but that they are the causing factor) parents genetically disposed to behavior problems will often pass those genes to their children. Hence, a child from a violent family who is adopted will be a problem child even absent exposure to video games and violent parenting.
Video games are not real, and as kids get older they start to realize how much of a fantasy video games are. They are entertaining and fun, violent as well but not real! Parents who are violent are very real and need to teach by example. This is the real world and if parents who resort to violence and kids see that, they will become just like them in most ways. Parents are real, Video games are not!
Violent parents cause behavior problems in children. Mothers and fathers of kids who are systematically abusive to the other parent or kids create mental problems in children because of the constant negativity circulating in the home. These children suffer emotionally and become violent themselves in both childhood and their adulthood.
Generally when people play violent video game, they have absolutely no desire to do a lot of these violent acts to real people. A game is meant to be fun and fantasy for the brain. But violent parents are real life, this can cause major mental stress to kids leading to some major behavior problems later on.
I think that violent parents cause a lot more behavior problems in children than violent video games do. I think that a violent parent teaches their kids that it is alright to be violent to, and when they get older they will do the same thing to their kids also.
