Sai King and Video Games

Long Days and Pleasant Nights, Gunslinger. You speak the truth.

Heck, I'm playing a video game with my son as I type this. Transformers. It's rated T for teen, but seeing how I've played through the entire game 2 years ago, I'd say I've reviewed the content.

And if there's violence to be had, the kids are gonna find a way to get it, just as they'll find a way to get all-day shooters like No Country for Old Men from cable if they want. Or Girls Gone Wild, for that matter. Can parents block that stuff? You bet. But most never do. The most effective bar against what was called ''the seduction of the innocent'' when this hot-button issue centered on violent comic books 60 years ago is still parents who know and care not just about what their kids are watching and reading, but what they're doing and who they're hanging with. Parents need to have the guts to forbid material they find objectionable...and then explain why it's being forbidden. They also need to monitor their children's lives in the pop culture — which means a lot more than seeing what games they're renting down the street.
