Are You a Good SuperHero?
Today’s adventure characters that play out the roles of being superheroes can display good and bad values for your children. One game our teenagers bought and began to play had what seemed to be a good superhero, only to find out later in the game, the motives were to take other characters captive. It is important to know what your kids think about what is good behavior and what is bad, especially in the electronic world in which they spend so much time. By having a healthy conversation about a good definition of superhero, you may be helping them make good choices in what they watch or the games they choose. The following questions will start a conversation that will help you understand what your children see in the games they play.
Since many of the superheroes of today become part of video games, this conversation can help you understand some of the games your teenagers are involved in playing. Don’t leave any of this to chance. The biggest battle we had with our boys was over games they played. We did not turn our heads, but we were involved in watching. A few games ended up in the trash and they were not happy about it at the time but we were okay with that. Just because their friends are doing it does not make it acceptable in your home. Parent up.
