    Because then he couldn’t play the game?

    my dad would have pulled off his belt and add more violence for the disrespect.

    No matter, it’s still nowhere near “Grand Theft Auto”.

    In the spirit of the game, wouldn’t he be going to bop Adam with it?

    And, if he threw that bag o’ chips, he’d only have to clean up the mess himself. So, why bother.

    Isn’t the game actually teaching him to release pent up anger through a virtual and non-harmful form of entertainment? Wouldn’t a good counselor or parent guide a child to the conclusion that it is good to release these emotions, but to do so in a manner that is either productive or not harmful to either the target or the child? Why are these games seen as the genesis of violence as opposed to a response to real world violence? and can they not in truth work both ways?

    It’s called discipline.
    A great many of the moms my age were into drugs and just let their kids do whatever. And so the kids ended up not respecting people and were frequently violent, often ending up in jail.
    Discipline can definitely be overdone, though. The punishment has to fit the crime, so to speak.
    If it’s done in anger, it’s not discipline. Before she mellowed and figured out that she couldn’t use temper to get her way, my mom would knock us kids around when she would get in “bad moods”. No excuse for it. Anything would set her off.
    It shows how the Lord can change someone, though, because the moderate person of today is nothing like the person I knew as a kid.

    I played a lot of Mortal Kombat as a teenager. I have yet to rip out someone’s spine. I’ve played a lot of Grand Theft Auto as a young adult. I have yet to steal a car, murder a hooker, or challenge a kid to a RC helicopter race.

    But you grew up with the funny papers, loonie tunes and Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote. You understand the violence and what not.
