It is not a secret that teens enjoy playing video games, but the statistics are still surprising. According to the Pew Research Center, around 72% of teens regularly play video games.
Mom asks for help
The desperate mother asks Dr. Phil for help, as she's afraid her 12-year-old son may become a school shooter because of video games.
The woman claims the teen spends all the time sitting at the computer and playing video games. He can do it without any pauses for more than twenty hours. She claims the boy doesn’t come out to eat with the rest of the family. Instead, he yells asking his mom to bring him a plate.
Teen’s mother also described two video games, he likes to play the most, claiming he gets really excited about the number of kills because the more kills you have the further you go in the game. The woman believes all that situation can result in the future school shooting.
She is the one to be blamed?
Nevertheless, people claim she is the one who is responsible for such a horrible situation, and the boy just needs a proper parenting example. Twitter users keep leaving messages, writing that the teen needs rules, boundaries, and consistent behavior from the parent.
This is definitely the parents responsibility! The child is a child, but she needs to "parent" this boy!!— Julie Gorman (@jgorman62) 1 February 2019
He needs rules, boundaries, responsibilities & consistent behavior from the parent! The key word here is PARENT! Stop the excuses, stop the kowtowing. He'll NEVER become a functioning/contributing member of society without mom providing him w/the proper tools!— Theresa Wedemeyer (@theriw) 1 February 2019
His mother’s negative thoughts expressing the expectation he might become the next school shooter is equally alarming. Negativity is so dangerous. Glad to hear they’re appearing on your show so you can help them both.— Jan Anderegg (@Janilou) 1 February 2019
Duh mom...take the brat's video games away! I don't doubt he will be a school shooter some day if you don't step up! 😡 I'm sure it's easier out of sight, out of mind. He will end up in juvie or jail eventually. Listen to Dr. Phil.— Norma Swanson (@SwansonNorma) 1 February 2019
According to the Psychology Todays, there are lots of negative effects of playing video games. One of the most horrible ones is that players learn to associate violence with pleasure and practice violent behavior thousands of times.
