    Go figure.
    Didn't your younger kids have the non zombie killing version though? (Sorry I don't understand the game, I am from the era where Pacman was cool).

    Yes they do.

    But honestly there is no link between the type of violence the articles cheeeesecake is referring to and the "violence" of minecraft. I completely agree with what she's saying. It just doesn't apply to minecraft. Even if zombies are killed. You have to watch the game to get what I mean.

    I have not read the whole thread so sorry if I repeat myself.. I would of given him a time-in (rather than a time-out) and hsve him sit with me for a bit, I would of asked him what he did wrong and have him and I suggest doing things better (eg being nicer). Kids copy what they see other kids (and adults too). I would of said that the little girl has feelings and it's not nice and ask how he would feel. Then keep an eye on things from then on (not saying you weren't though).

    Play centres are such hyped up environments! My DD is 5yo and knows that hitting or kicking someone is wrong, and luckily it hasn't been an issue, but I wouldn't think it was 'abnormal' if she did hit or kick someone. She can be quite rough with her little brother (pushing him out of the way), she knows it's wrong but sometimes she gets frustrated with him and doesn't think before she acts. She's never played computer games or watched anything violent on TV, it's just her learning about how to behave and regulate.

    OP please don't stress! Let's be honest majority of adults still don't know how to behave. They may not hit, but they sure know how to belittle and be unkind to people. He's 4, he is still exploring the world around him. They will make mistakes their whole lives (I know I sure do). Doesn't make him a bad kid or you a bad parent. You managed the situation and explained it was wrong. That to me shows you are awesome and I have no doubt that your babe is going to grow into a fine young man. High fives for sorting it out and being an amazing mum!!

    I agree with everything @Sonja has said. I'd hazard a guess that many posters that think minecraft is violent have never even seen the game. DS has been playing it since he was 5 and it's never affected his behaviour badly in any way shape or form.

    My stepsons play it - they just build farms and stuff. I'm surprised it's so popular with its terrible graphics. I was confused when I first saw it, I thought it was from the 80s 😂
