RJ Lavallee's curator insight, June 25, 7:34 AM

Interestingly, it's not just the reading but the interaction with the child that's making the difference. The reading is actually a red herring, but a useful one (the additional exposure to more words).

Violent video games: More playing time equals more aggression | eParenting and Parenting in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
A new study provides the first experimental evidence that the negative effects of playing violent video games can accumulate over time. Researchers found that people who played a violent video game for three consecutive days showed increases in aggressive behavior and hostile expectations each day they played. Meanwhile, those who played nonviolent games showed no meaningful changes in aggression or hostile expectations over that period.

Parent sorry for daughter's drunken assault on trio - NZ Herald News | eParenting and Parenting in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
A parent of one of the teenage girls at the centre of serious assault allegations has expressed her disappointment over her daughter's actions. - New Zealand Herald
Peter Mellow's insight:


Great that one parent can stand up and apologise for their children's actions


I like how she said;  ''I won't have this be what my family represents''.



People need to take more individual and personal responsibility for their actions. Hopefully she can persuade her daughter to do the right thing. Let's hope that these girls learn from this lesson and move forward in a positive way.
