The video games I played growing up are nothing like the ones now. I can't imagine what it does to a young child to play those violent games.

We don't do video games or television. At all. One thing that hit home for me was an explanation from a trusted friend, doctor, and pediatric psychiatrist. In real life we don't move 100 frames per minute. It is much slower. In cartoons and video games they do - and it gets faster and faster with new technologies. By continued use a brain is being rewired to that high paced format. It is theorized that too much television and video games contributes to attention issues. So it is not just a matter of aggression or violence but also addiction to the pace set, the action, and rewiring our bodies/brains reaction times to stimuli. Not something I want for my child.
