Raising Up Little Monsters Via Video Games.

I don’t remember which online newspaper carried this headline, but it was a headline for days. As you look at kids nowadays, you lack words to describe their actions. Nothing is wrong with kids these days. The parents are reaping the seeds they sowed. If you rebuke a child, they say it is abuse. Children are left to grow up as little monsters. You cannot correct your own child. One day I asked a colleague how the kids are treating her, and she said: "Oh, they are not kids, they are our little monsters." Perhaps she was not wrong when you look at what kids do nowadays and what monsters did yesteryears.

A child goes to school and does not do his or her work, but the teacher, school and school system are bullied into inflating grades to let the child pass. They make excuses for them how they are kids rather than holding them accountable. If one cannot raise up a child, then he or she should be responsible as he/she sows his/her wild oaks. Indeed one would feel sorry for what the kids do to their parents but again perhaps there is nothing bad in eating one’s own food. The society is merely reaping what it sowed! When a child does something wrong in school, you hear people say "Oh, you know he is just a kid and teens will always be teens." Well, he that trains monsters should wait for their turn; after they finish your enemies, you will be next.

September 4, 2007, a 14 year old student stabbed her 16 year old sister to death because she did not like her boyfriend . Destructive violence is the weapon of weak communicators. Today when you try to engage teenagers into an argument, they get very offended and tell you "I don’t want to talk about it". Any resistance results to violence. They have not been trained to communicate meanwhile it is through communication that we buy reason.

September 17, 2008 teen grabbed a knife and stabbed his own mother in the chest and her boyfriend on the arm for nothing they alleged . In December of 2008, Kristofer Beddar stabbed 15 years old Jessica Knight around 20 times for nothing . Can you imagine your sister or daughter listening to her ipod and walking through a park only for some disgruntled kid to fall on her and stab her 20 times? Who has told them they are the only ones with problems?

May 13, 2009, 14 year old teen stabbed and killed his own mother’s boyfriend . Are we surprised with such acts? There is no bond between step-father and step-son. Perhaps the father is somewhere remote-controlling the poor kid to be against the mother’s boyfriend so that he may have a second chance, or perhaps he is doing that to gain custody. One thing is sure; there is no bond.

In June 7, 2009, Arnold T. Ross was arrested on charges he raped an 8 month old child . On June 16, 2009, Daniel Petric was sentenced to 23 years to life imprisonment for killing his own very mother and wounding his minister father due to obsession with video games . June 17, 2009, Tylar Witt who is merely 14 years old and her 19 year old boyfriend: Steven Colver connived and killed her own mother: Joanne Witt by stabbing her to death . Imagine stabbing your own mother to death just so you can patch life with a boyfriend. She stood there and helped a man drive daggers into her mother’s body until she died. Are they the first to love? Are men or women finished on earth that if they refrain you from being with a given person you must kill someone? Here is a lack of family value and bond. Families are now torn apart with divorce in a way that kids are growing now with their parents as complete strangers. June 19, 2009 Tyler Hayes was charged for a month long killing spree of cats . Again violence!

The main reason is that the kids have been trained by monsters called video games and televisions. These are things that have no emotions and are not attached to any human being. Commercials and advertisements are created to entice consumers. When you watch a cold coke, you are tempted to get one and quench your thirst. So as kids drill their souls in the violence of video games and televisions, they subconsciously acquire those violent skills. The nearest cavies to test their skills are their parents and siblings!

A little girl of about 8 years old came to me one time to pray for her that she was having nightmares. I prayed and went away. Then last week she met me in one occasion and told me that those nightmares have started coming back. So I asked her if she was watching scary movies she said she loves them too much. Then I told her “that is the cause of your problem”. Those games kids are playing and watching on TV are turning them into monsters. They spend more time on the internet and television than with family and this has eroded the family bond.


Until then, a properly trained child will not go astray.
