So Random Saturday: IM A MEAN MOM!
Im the meanest mom!
It all started a few years ago, when I let my oldest son start playing "war" games on his xbox.
I knew that his friends had these games and he enjoyed playing them. With him wanting to be a cop and interested in being the army when he gets older I didnt see any harm.
Well over the years and after spending lots of money on games like "Black Ops" and "Socom" and seeing a huge change in his behavior and one day watching him play one of these games and actually hearing what they say in the game and the actual content of these video games I finally said NO MORE!
Me and Joseph (my significant other/daddy) agreed to get rid of all the war games and any game with the rating of Teen or Mature.
My son who is 9 of course is upset and now I feel bad cause I feel like he should have never been able to play these games in the first place. Its been about a month since hes been able to play any of these games and I have seen a huge change in his behavior, for the better. We turned in all the "bad" games for "good" games.
I do feel though now that I am isolating him but in my heart I know I made the right choice!
Super random I know just wanted to share this emotional time as a mommy and maybe see if other mommys have gone through this?
