COMPUTER GAMES ARE
AFFECTING BEHAVIOUR OF CHILDREN
Would you like your child
to see violence and inappropriate imagery? The answer for all parents goes
without saying is,"no". Computer games manufacturers produce games
such as Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty which promote violence and language
that is damaging to our children. These games are not positive for any age but
manufacturers do put age limits on the games for a reason. Within school we see
the impact of these games on those that have played them underage, particularly
on very young children. We have seen children as young as 6 talk about these
games and even bring them in for 'show and tell'. We then see them re-enacting
the scenes and violent behaviour and using the language on
the games and for some, the imagery comes out in their writing. Research shows
that children who repeatedly play brutal video games are learning thought
patterns that will stick with them and influence their behaviour as they grow older. Maybe
for some parents you have not looked at the games before buying them for your
children. For some parents maybe the 'everyone else has it' has worn you down.
However these games are damaging the minds of our children and so can I ask you
to consider carefully whether your children have them or play on them. I raise
this because it is impacting on their behaviour in school and on them.
