    I'm the same. We had no tv until the year dd turned 6. Even now it stays off for days on end. We love books, board games, lego, hiking, swimming, and have very little interest in tv. My mum has a ps2 at her place and Wii. DD plays tennis and golf on Wii Fit, and plays Garfield, Singstar and other cute kiddy games on ps2.

    We don't allow them however our 8 year old son has friends his age who play grand theft auto and halo. His friends don't want to come here because we don't allow these games or m rated DVDs so we are boring to them pretty sad.

    Yeah probably when they're older and more mature.... When I was a kid I was always interested in horror movies and gory stuff and once Mum and Dad thought I was mature enough (around 11 or 12 from memory I was allowed to watch that stuff!)

    it is awful.
    I will not allow any kid that plays those games into my house.
    They are mindless violence..and I am sorry but for the first time I am going to be a judgemental cow and say...
    I do not understand how any parent thinks that GTA is ok for a growing mind.

    No way. As a teacher it is very distressing to watch innocent children get tainted by the video game content. They kill, prostitute and sell drugs to play these games and win. Sweet, pure minds are lost forever. Very irresponsible parenting and in my mind a form of child abuse.
