"Should I stop my sons from playing violent video games?"

This week's Tips On Teens question centers around the controversial idea that violent video games may be influencing school shooters. What do you think about this possible connection?

"Hi Kent, I am so upset about the recent mass shootings. All three of my sons love violent first person shooter video games and the media is saying that it is a big part of the violence we see in America today.

Should I stop my sons from playing these games?"
