I disagree with the statement. Just because a parent is involved in online gaming, it doesn't necessarily mean that they do it all the time, or that they neglect their children or parental responsibilities because of it. There are healthy limits to everything in life, which includes time spent online. If they have an addiction to gaming or being online then I could see THAT as a problem, but saying that all parents who game aren't good parents is a little too general.
I think its not nessecarily true. Yes, some parents will play a game instead of hanging out with their kid, my Dad does that. But I know he been working hard all day and deserves to play a game or two. And he takes care of me the best he can. So no, I dont think that statement is accurate. In few cases, yes, but most no.
I think who ever could say that may not have a clear, reasonable ,responsable state of mind nesecery to bring up a mentaly well balanced child ,and there confused state of mind may in fact harm that childs development...they would be better off playing games than making a strange statement.
I really disagree with this. While gaming can be hazardous to the child's health if the parent is addicted, many parents who are also gamers take great care of their children. Generalizing people into such a topic is like saying that girls who wear black every Tuesday are meth addicts.
Thank you for the response, everyone. One of my friends is now trying to make his study of social diseases. He is trying to pick up a topic on the correlation between parents who play online game and their attitude toward their children.
I agree - this statement says nothing about how often the parents are playing online games, but assuming they dont care for their children for the simple fact they play them at all.
