Video Games and Violence

Video Description: 
Using as an example the anxiety parents have about violent video games, Byron Katie encourages the audience to explore their fears, question them, and see what's on the other side. A parent may be terrified that a child will become a criminal or go to prison because he is spending all his time watching video games. Once these fears are investigated, understanding replaces fear, and you can join your child in a place of love. "Once you write a Worksheet on what you fear will happen to your child and question your thoughts," Katie says, "you find words to say to your children that are clear and kind and loving. You know yourself, you know your limits, and because you're clear with yourself, you can be absolutely clear with your child."
