After reading this book I would make it required reading for every parent with small children. Working with many children and being in the law enforcement community I see the results of media violence firsthand. Dave Grossman is right on and backs up his statements with hard cold facts. A must read book.

A Perfect example of victimization

This book completely ignores studies and statistics. Rather than blaming irresponsible parents or retailers, it blames the gaming and movie industries. This is like blaming Islam for fundumentalist and extremist Muslims. Rather than blaming those who are truly responsible for youth violence, this book blames creators of these games, movies and shows. They are rated by their content, and games rated M (most, if not all games mentioned in the book are) and movies rated R (again, mentioned in this book) should be sold only to those over the age of 17, and parents should monitor what their children do and do not play/watch. 'Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill: A Call to Action against TV, Movie and Video Game Violence' is extremely hypocritical, uses these industries as a scapegoat, teaches its readers not to take responsibility for their actions, and gives parents an excuse for their poor parenting and, in some cases, total failures to parent their children.
