Recently, my husband and I got into it because he has a friend whose G/F lets her 4-5 year old son play call of duty an hour every school night IF he does all his homework and chores first. She claims that it makes him do it so it's perfectly normal. Her 13 year old also plays the game quite frequently. He believes it's perfectly okay and wants to do it with our son. I believe that someone should slap her and take her son's game away. (kidding!)
After that, I got on here and saw a ton of posts about allowing kids to play grand theft auto, call of duty, and others that are heavy in violence. Young kids too, ages from 2-9. I don't think that's ok. To me, there's no reason why a child, especially a young one, should be purposely exposed to that level of violence.
What do you think and why?
