Connecting games with life

The spring/summer issue of the Journal of Children and Media contains data  which shows the influence of video games on a child’s moral reasoning.

Although the sample size was small, researchers say that frequent exposure to violent video games impacts a child’s perception of what’s right and wrong.

We could see this as simply another reminder  to screen and filter what kids see.  But the more important takeaway is to make sure we help them develop a portable filter in their heads.
