Is there really a link between video games and teen suicide?
Here is a perspective you may want to consider.
A Dangerous Connection
We’ve talked before about how teens today and suffering from entertainment overload. This is having unintended consequences as the stimulation in the pleasure centers of their brains is making it so that nothing satisfies them.
When you can’t find satisfaction you lose hope. When you lose hope you lose the will to live. Is it any wonder then that American kids now lead the world in teen suicide?
The problem starts with a lack of self-restraint and discipline. As parents, we need to start putting limits on our kids’ electronic play time. Let’s heed Proverbs 18:19. “Discipline your son, for in that there is hope.” Do not be a willing party to his death.
