I know this FML is old and I'm thread jacking but drunk driving is serious. I'm tired of irresponsible people's decision to drink and think it's ok to risk not only themselves but other people who could have families and loved ones life on the line. I know this from experience, and thank god I'm alive. You better teach your son about how serious it is.

you can't shelter kids from games or movies without incessantly monitoring their Internet access or refusing to let them visit friends. I was one of the last kids at my school to be allowed to watch rated R movies... so i just watched them at my friend's houses. I actually wanted to watch the movies even more since I wasn't allowed to. censorship is counterproductive.

sometimes people tend to underestimate age, if at that age he does not know the difference between game and reality, would a couple a years really teach him.

^ I disagree you don't neccesarily need to say that your kids cannot have them just don't buy them for your kids. and if they ask for it just tell them that you don't want them to play such violent video games because they hav bad effects on kids.. if your kids still go behind your back and lie to you just to play a game then you are raising your kids wrong in my oppinion.

You may not be able to keep him from playing GTA. But you had 14 years to raise him with a thought process that arrives at a conclusion other than, "dur, video game = life" So yeah. Parent's fault.

Are you fucking kidding me? Grand theft auto is a damn video game. I played when I was in 4th grade, and you don't see me going out killing people, getting hookers, and shooting up drugs. I'd be more worried about watching porn. That's more dangerous then the fricken video game.

Oh, and 46. You obviously are an idiot. You can raise kids the best you can but they're still going to sneak and do shit you tell them not to do, that doesn't have anything to do with how they raised them.

how many people do you know that are under 17 and play M rated games? people just don't give a crap about it anymore. I'm 15 and I play whatever the fuck I want. ( except GTA. I hate that game )

I was simply stating my view on the matter. I feel as though of your kids feel as though they cannot come to you about anything your way of parenting might be slightly flawed. excuse me, you might know better than I do, I don't have children, I was just raised in that a very open environment and kids at my school often say that they wouldn't sneak around if their parents were more understanding. I'm sorry if my comment offended you or anyone else. but nonetheless my view stands...

108- my parents would probably let me play it. I am 15 but I have the sense to tell the difference between reality and what is in the video game unlike OP's kid. I have nothing against violent video games but the results that occur from a child playing the game should be the parents fault. it's the parent's job to know what their kids are doing and decide if it's okay for their kids to be doing that. my stance is that the game is rated M for mature, so if your kids aren't mature don't let them play it.

omg 74 if you tell a kid a game is too violent and you aren't going to buy it for them, but their friends have it, they are still going to want to play it. If you have never gone behind your parents back and done something then you are a very unique person imo. You never cussed, got drunk, watched a movie, played a video game, snuck out, stayed out past curfew, stayed on the phone too long, did something before you completed your homework, cheated on a test, passed notes during class, or anything that your parents wouldn't want you to until you were 18 (or 21 for the drinking) years old? Just because you talk to your kids and raise them properly doesn't mean they won't defy you one way or another. A parent can't control who the kids talk to at school etc. You are a really smart person, your view point is so spot on. All the rest of us are just swimming in a sea of wrong while you are sitting in a tiny fish bowl with all the other people with your opinion. If your opinion is correct the majority of parents are "flawed" and apparently yours are perfect...

I have to say no to your question. I have never felt a need to do anything my parent told me not to. I care about what my mom thinks of me more than anything. I don't mean to be in a fishbowl among a sea of wrong but I am definately not saying that parents that can't do that are bad parents(it is far beyond me to say if someone's parenting is good or bad) I am just saying that their parenting is flawed. my parents aren't perfect by any means but they taught me right from wrong for a reason and gave me the freedom to decide whether to do the right thing or the wrong thing.

if the kids not mature don't let him play it. if he is then let him play it in moderation. every kid will defy their parents so how. *EVERYONE* sins. so just because he said this doesn't always mean the OP is a bad parent. I'm 16 and alot of kids play it, I don't cause I know it's not good or me and sex and drugs arnt very important to me

well 142 your either lieing or you had a very dull childhood, second yes the majority of kids will do what they want which for the record doesn't necessarily make it ok, and their is a distinct difference between your buying the game for them which in their mind condones them playing it and by proxy everything the game contains, as opposed to refusing to let them play it which associates it with a negative connotation, in addition I love violent video games I think they are a great outlet and I played them before I was 17 however I didn't play them until my parents decided I was mature enough to separate the practices in the game to those of life which this kid obviously can't

Dude. I was 15 once. My parents didn't care what video games I played, there wasn't a whole lot that I had to pick from, but I played what I wanted. When my parents told me not to do something, it made me want to do it more. When my parents didn't care, then I wouldn't normally do it as much as I wanted to do what they told me not too. You tell your kid that it's not ok to play video games, they're gonna do it anyways, end of story. My kids are 12, I would know.

yous are idiots videogames can be suitable for everyone judging on their capabilty of judging real life and fantasy .. if the child cannot see the line they shouldn't be allowed.. and introduce this asshole to FIFA maybe then he mite become a soccer player instead of a criminal ..

Please don't tell me you're one of those parents that blames video games and conveniently forgets that if a kid under 17 wants an M-rated game an adult (probably the parent) has to buy it for them.

60 - I kind of agree, it's up to the parent to decide whether the kid is mature enough to play OP's kid obviously isn't if he can't seperate video game from reality. I don't wanna say kids should or should because it really all depends on the kid but the game is rated M for mature for a reason.

I'm not saying that all fourteen year olds shouldn't be aloud to play mature games I'm just saying the ones who aren't mature enough to distinguish the effects of alcohol and drugs in a game to how they would actually affect them in real life
