Shocking, but true. Violent video games that are highly popular in the market these days, may cause damage to the children's brain.

This is true and thanks for reffering to that. This kind of games really can hurt a child's mind. I will never leave my son to make use of these games. At TV when a movie has violence I try to take him away. If this is not possible then I will try to ridicule the situation or make him understand how bad this is.

I think it depends on a kid and the environment they're in. With children that are already violent, the video games help them be more aggressive. With kids that aren't violent, they understand that it's only video games and not a real life situation, so that they know not to be aggressive with others around them.

I think that violent video games condition children to violence and I believe that they are a lot more likely to behave in a violent manner. I don't think they should be exposed to these kinds of games. Unfortunately many children are and I am concerned about how much more violence will be seen on the streets and in the homes in the next few years to come as these children grow into adulthood.
