This is a terrifying but important read for parents. I only wish there was a less jackhammer effect of the agenda - even where I agree - the real world has more nuance and parents need tools to help manage the expectations and complexities of modern life.
I grew up with guns in my room as a kid and I own them now. I think there’s more to this debate than just gaming. It’s also about parental involvement and the movies kids watch which gets some coverage but not enough. That’s not his agenda here, and I agree that money and greed drive sad business outcomes.
So the book is hugely thoughtful and I’m going to ask my son to read it so we can discuss the topic more. In truth, we already limited the kinds of games as I don’t like some of the game story lines anyway.
I’ve read Grossmans other books too, as I’m a military person and he’s done a lot to advance our understanding of these topics.
