Video Shame

I'm watching my son
Playing his strange game
If we're not careful
Will he go insane?

He seems to enjoy
This World of pretend
It is just fantasy
Not real in the end

He's still the same guy
I don't see a change
You may wonder why
I don't think it's strange

He knows the difference
Between right and wrong
Through conversation 
We helped him along

Values that he learned
Didn't come from his game
If that was the case
It would be a shame

    Congrats !! I really comes down to talking with the children. Making sure they realize it's fantasy and not real, what's right and what's wrong. Enjoyed your poem.

    Congratulations on a well deserved win, Richard. There's no question, we need to put time in with our kids and the result will definitely be different. Have a great weekend. Always, Annalise

    They say the proof is in the pudding and Matthew is a sensitive artistic and articulate young man. Musician and on his way to becoming a pharmacist. As parents we still decide how much time is spent and what other activities our kids are involved with. We also need to talk to them.

    what a great way to do this contest. I really should try to think of something. It's a shame that this contest has so few entries. I just know ZERO about video games. I commend you for taking the challenge.
