Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano offer incontrovertible evidence . This book is so important for parents of children of all ages.
This book is so important for parents of children of all ages.
Their book is a much-needed call to action for every parent, teacher, and citizen to help our children and stop the wave of killing and violence gripping America's youth. And, most important, it is a blueprint for us all on how that can be achieved.

This book doesn't even attempt to explain that phenomena, and with that regard, they've done a very poor job pinning America's problem with violence solely on entertainment. Although every chapter of Stop Teaching Our Kids To Kill is incredibly important, I recommend jumping right into Chapter Three – Murder, Torture, Brutality: Dangerous Games, and Chapter Four – The Story I Tell Myself About Myself.
Preface: Prior to reading this book, I heard Lt. Col. Grossman saw a Youtube video about the warrior training given . I was not aware to find out that this book was a call to action against media violence, including video games. Grossman saw a Youtube video about the warrior training given to law enforcement & US militar. As someone who cherish video games growing up, playing occasional violent games, and even writing a freshman English paper with the thesis, videogames does not cause an increase in violence, I approach the book with significant bias. To my surprise, it was well-written, and communicated effectively.
I wanted to give parents, professionals, and policy makers a comprehensive guide for understanding how the prolific use of sensational violence in television, movies, and in video games affects kids' attitudes and actions. The book includes the new brain science to understand how media violence affects children and adolescents, along with risk factors that put kids in danger of imitating media violence more readily and the protective factors that immunize kids from media violence's harmful effects.
Completely revised and updated, a much-needed call to action for every parent, teacher, and citizen to help our children and stop the wave of killing and violence gripping America's youth. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano believe the root cause is the steady diet of violent entertainment kids see on TV, in movies, and in the video games they play-witnessing hundreds of violent images a day.
There is perhaps no bigger or more important issue in America at present than youth violence. Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora: We know them all too well, and for all the wrong reasons: kids, some as young as eleven years old, taking up arms and, with deadly, frightening accuracy, murdering anyone in their paths.
