Parenting: “Have you played a fighting game before?”
December 25, 2017 3:06am CST
The toughest job is being a parent. “Would you agree?” I had seen some parents who are having a hard time dealing with their own children. They need to give the best for everything in their family. Now, we are living in the modern world and things had changed at a fast pace. In this modern world, parents should cope up with the changes. Nowadays, children are so addicted in playing various computer or video games. It could be entertaining for them. But then, some of them are violent in nature such as a ‘fighting game.’ As a parent, "How can you handle or monitor this kind of computer or video games?" Image Credit: pixabay.com

No but I watched the big fighting game championship where they played Street Fighter just recently and this kid only 18 yrs old and Dominican Mena RD won some big money..He beat out a lot of Asian game players too. It was exciting to watch.
I am also curious about this. I feel a child can be offered all violent and scary stuff, AFTER he or she is oriented towards a goal. That way, the mind finds it easier to accept realistic command and differentiate it with unrealistic stuff. But if the goal and the child moving in that direction is not there, then it can be quite dangerous.

I'm not a parent but I if had this situation I would do take them and explain them they can't be forever playing games and spending hours a front of the screen. They should do more things, sports for example which it's important for their health, making sure they are socializing as well.
When my child was small, we didn't let him play brutal games. He is adult now and he knows what is bad and good. I know that hubby and I brought him up well. Last Christmas when he seen a child beauty contest in the tv, he said he doesn't like it at all. Why should small girls have to do this adult stuff of beauty pageant, makeup nd so on. Well, I said that's usually their parents who wanted their children to participate.
I think it is nice to guide them when seeing something new. In Philippines' schools, some children usually have the same activities with makeup and all. They showed their talents and best venue to showcase their talents. I do think that kiddies beauty pageant is another story.

I am not yet a parent but I play fighting games and Hell Yeah I will compete in a real tournament. So I am definietly going to be a cool dad. Most kids these days though dont like fighting games. They like first person shooters.
my son played some online games, but not the competitive ones. i play online as well, like monster busters. no fighting though. no, i don't monitor my son's playing online. actually, when we go out, like after eating, he opens his phone and reads. he is more of a reader than me. hahah!
