Welcome back. If you have a child who plays video games, it might be time to take a closer look at what they're seeing on screen. The American Academy of Pediatrics is putting out new recommendations urging parents to protect young children from on-screen violence. Health reporter Vik Adhopia lays out the research.
[V.A.] America's Army is a video game in which the player shoots to kill other soldiers. It was initially developed by the US military to train recruits 14 years ago, but its commercial popularity has led to newer, more realistic and immersive versions of first-person shooting games. That's what's troubling pediatricians.

CBC - where you can watch quality kids programing like "The adventures of Napkin Man!" and "Will's Jam" 5 days a week....
I guess Looney Toon's is too subversive, you know EVERYONE will jump off the cliff because the Coyote did.
I can only hope that more people will check out the game because someone said it is bad for you...

Best thing I can recommend is ignore anything the CBC says. It's a state-funded broadcaster, like Moscow's Pravda back in the day, and a proven arm of the socialist establishment in Canada.
