Children ‘acting out violent games’
8:50am Tuesday 8th May 2012 in East Yorkshire news
AN EAST Yorkshire headteacher has warned that children as young as four are acting out scenes from violent computer games in the playground.
John Killeen, who is head at South Cave Church of England School in Brough and is also an executive member of the National Association of Head Teachers, said he had become aware of pupils at British schools playing “inappropriate games they have seen on software”.
He also raised concerns that children did not appreciate the risks involved because they were used to seeing their computer characters “jumping back up and carrying on” after fights.
