Video games bringing violence to homes

Postby Sōsuke Aizen » April 22nd, 2018, 8:23 pm

Secretary of the Psychiatrists Association of Trinidad and Tobago Dr Varma Deyalsingh has observed that children are experiencing more emotional problems than previous generations and advises parents to learn when to seek help from trained social workers and counsellors.

http://newsday.co.tt/2018/04/22/video-g ... nto-homes/

No statistics, no references, no facts and this man just correlate violence to video games. I been playing violent video games for years and I turned out fine. What bullchit did I read?
Why don't they get rid of that garbage alkaline, popcaan, etc nonsense that encourage youths to live the thug lifestyle. Why don't they flush the chit hole communities of T&T? (beetham, maloney, la horquetta, edinburgh etc.) Maybe that would help the situation.
I hate ghetto people.

That headline is very misleading. If you read what he said ,its totally different. He says that nothing is wrong with the games itself ,and it wouldnt affect some, but the ones that are pte-disposed and who have issues, to them its a problem.

Agree with your position on the music and music videos though. Anybody ever notice that even a lot of the children tv shows ,disney etc, is only one set of hyper/ bad behaviour?

Don't blame the games. Blame poor parenting. Though there may be a correlation with escaping into games and those with emotional issues.

Yea it's true..my daughter banned from tv for a while until she unlearns what we exposed her to. TV won't be introduced. I'll be downloading/buying learning material for her.

Not right now...she is on punishment. Have to learn that their are consequences for bad behavior, which is our fault since we are responsible for what she is exposed to via tv at home.

When she is allowed to watch TV next it will be more controlled.

Children these days get really addicted to to these media so it must be monitored and addressed from as early as possible. Alot of negatives in those cartoons and shows exposing children to certain material prematurely.

x1000

My 8 yo son is well aware of most of the 4 letter words, is fully engaged into Call of Duty, WWE,Uncharted and whatever is the gangster game he plays by his cousins...for a couple years now.....he is yet to act out any violence or use any of the language that is used in these games.

We watched Fastest Car together....and whatever movies we can get away with when the mother aint listening.

ENGAGED parenting is the key.Contextualizing all the stuff in the way kids are exposed to...
He knows time and place.

Parents develop issues when they use the gadgets as babysitters and foster parents.

Yeah I agree but also nowadays they need even more supervision outside as well. You can't go inside and cook and leave your children outside like before nah, is either somebody touch them or they go missing entirely. Times have changed in that respect unfortunately

Hopefully Imbert increase taxes on video games, so the children can be protected from these "negative influences"...

i think addiction to these devices is a genuine issue. people think only drug addiction is a problem but any form of addiction is an issue. when you take away these things from kids they behave as if they are in withdrawal. the arguement that video games begets violence is absolute nonsense as was the concern when tv was first intruduced and before that fantasy novels and so on and so on. parents need to stop relying on these things to keep their children quiet and actually do things with them.

Times have changed. In my teens there were many low or no tech activities in just going somewhere. See the cousins, go arcade, meet up with the fellas and just take a walk somewhere. There were many green spaces in arima to go: take in a river, lime by the velodrome and watch chicks, find a bushy spot to smoke the cigarettes that weren't yet prohibited being sold to minors since they assumed your parent sent you...

And I sure the cool kids or the ones with more money to knock about had something way better to do. Place was definitely safer. Place also wasnt densely populated so there were lots of areas to explore.

Now as an adult I look at the neighborhood and there isn't much apparent opportunity for the boy day experience of past days. Neighborhood is an off location so picking yourself up and going anywhere is out of the question. Its also a new community so a lot of things established communities enjoy are not in place yet. The youngsters mainly into football and small pockets of children ride their bikes. The teenagers congregate in front somebody's house. Lord knows what the odd kids are into. Probably eff around on the internet on some digital device.

Can't just throw general blame at devices for replacing the fun activities the older generation used to enjoy. This isn't the Trinidad of your childhood.

Sometimes it's cause the parents themselves are nose deep in their devices and ignore the child to the point that they just buy one for them and everyone zone off

Remember back in the 90's when Mortal Kombat first came out in the Arcades all the dip sh!t psychologists out of nowhere came and said that Mortal Kombat was the cause of violence among kids even though the same violence existed even before Mortal Kombat came out? For no other reason than their 15 minute of fame all the dip sh!ts came out from under their rock and claimed video games is the cause of all our problems.

And before that they blamed violence on movies. And before that? who even knows they probably blamed it on Lions and Crocodiles. All the failed parents and dip sh!t experts could never seem to know where to put the blame, too afriad to admit their failed parenting

Pretty sure kids learn more from video games than they do at school.. it improves your thinking, ability to multitask, reaction time, concentration and teaches street knowledge.

For example you have a child that watches TV vs a child who plays video games:
Child who watches TV is just absorbing information.
Child who plays video games always have to be on edge cuz they always looking around for the enemy and their hand/eye co-ordination have to be on point if they want to execute the mission.

Child who watches TV more likely to be violent than child who plays video games since said child will throw a fit and rage every time they die to the enemy and will work to be better so the mistake does not happen again thus releasing their tendency to become violent.

Video games relieves stress.

Actually , I beg to differ. My second son ,when he was younger, began having breathing problems. He used to gasp suddenly and his heart would race and his stomach muscles twitch uncontrollably. We took him to a paediatric specialist who found nothing wrong. She did many tests and reassured that he was ok,but it didn't stop. After two visits, she asked if he played videogames. Actually that was his middle name. She advised that we make him take a break from it. He returned to normal after a few weeks. She said that the anticipation, the flashing lights and excitement of the games cause hyperventilating and in some cases epileptic fits or seizures. He never had further problems.
