Warning on violent computer games

Have your say

Children are coming to school “frightened” after playing violent computer games, a headteacher has warned.

Writing to parents of children at Whitstable Junior School in Kent, Gill Moody said: “We 
are becoming increasingly aware that some of our children are playing inappropriate computer games and as a result 
are coming to school 
frightened by what they are 

“Please do consider the impact 18-rated material has on young children who do not understand the content and cannot cope with the feelings or images they are seeing.”

The headteacher added: “I appreciate that this is only a very small minority of children, but if your child is playing Grand Theft Auto and you have not checked out what this game includes –please do so.”
