Breaking News! Parents Don’t Monitor Their Children!

November 30th, 2006 . by jb

In what should come as no shock to anyone, the NIMF is reporting that parents aren't keeping a close enough eye on their children's gaming habits.

A survey was given to both parents and children, and wouldn't you know it, the parents think they're doing a fine job!

The children, on the other hand, are reporting that they are getting away with murder, rape and theft.  Thankfully the former actions only take place in 85% of the games played by children these days…

Of the polled parents:  68% claimed that they had rules in place to dictate their children's gaming habits.

Of the polled children:  36% claimed the same.

Is this report supposed to be opening the eyes of parents?  Honestly, it's sad that parents don't monitor their children's actions.

If you're kid is shooting hookers in video games before they can read at the first grade level, then you've failed as a parent.
