Blame the parents, not the children.


There it is. Of course that is going to "hurt some feelings" but that is the truth in 6 words.

A lot of selfish folks shouldn't have children and when they do the end result is simply damaged goods.
 Quoting: Moses 29174219


Yea, unfortunately...

I play a lot of video games, I know the "peaceful escape" feeling all too well.

Re: Uncaring parents drive kids to video games.
Yea blame blame blame you goody two shoes. The rest of us gotta deal with the kid and his actions. i'd rather point and laugh at him...making fun of him and hoping one day the kid fixes himself...if not it's whatever. He soon realizes his own worth after blaming the adults, ha ha ha. That look is precious.

Oh God, where art though? Why must our souls be shards, is it a dirty trick or lesson or a test?

Gaming is fun, but if you do it every day it fucks you up. Parents should make sure their kids keep it to an hour a day and an adults should keep it to the same. Read a book or learn a trade or hobby with the rest of your time. I'm currently learning guitar.
 Quoting: Leslie Zevo


Guitar is nice. Children are awesome. You are not talking about the parents who are both unable to take care of them or talk to them reasonably due to the fact that they both are working away from home. What about the latchkey kids? What about the orphans? Who takes care of them?


Who?

So EVERYONE is addicted now and EVERYONE is in denial? That's what you are trying to say?

Re: Uncaring parents drive kids to video games.
What say you about the military and their "games"? You don't think they use video games? Oh, that's right, we know they do.

Life hurts...K?

Be nice to one another...K?

Make sure that those you want to play these games with are ready to play with you.

Re: Uncaring parents drive kids to video games.
The parents got a divorce when the kid was a teen - there was probably a lot of fighting going on in the home - a lot of back-stabbing between parents and placing the kid in the middle. You know it was bad if the 24-year-old brother hadn't had contact in a couple of years.

The kid was a goth - didn't that send up some red flags to the parents - especially when he has a history of mental problems? Likely, they had him on a number of prescriptions over the years without even trying to figure out what was causing his problems - merely taking the easy way out and treating with pharmaceuticals, some of which can have severe negative side effects well past when they are discontinued.

Then, what does mom do? She buys all sorts of guns which are available to the 20-year-old with mental problems. He lives at home at twenty? No training for a job? OK, tell me that these parents didn't screw up this kid.

Like I said, I've been working with such kids for years - it's ALWAYS the parents.

I think the video games are a tool to TPTB to get you to depersonalize killing.

I expect to see a sharp rise in this random kinda tragedy.

Re: Uncaring parents drive kids to video games.
We all grow up in different households with different lives. We go through many stages within our lives too. And when we grow up, we can make our own decisions based on whatever reasons we have despite how good or bad our upbringing was. What it really comes down to is what does our heart tell us? Do we follow the right thing or the wrong thing? Are we willing to let go of our own beliefs of what we think is right or wrong to follow a more loving, compassionate and peaceful life? Are we also learning to set proper boundaries among each other - including our parents, children, family members, bosses, workers,friends, neighbors,etc. - so that the other person who have pushed too far can step back and realize that they can't always have it their way? Are we willing to step back when we find ourselves pushing our own beliefs and will onto someone else? When we start to realize the real truth of what is right or wrong, we will know deep within our hearts. There won't be any anger, jealousy, arrogance, but just a knowing that it is the 'right thing to do'.
