To gain perspective, let's count the babies who have been sent prematurely to their final rest.
- Globally, since 2001, due to problemtatic game use: 10? 20? (judging from news reports).
- In England, since 2001, due to abuse and neglect generally: 1,500 (3 per week times ten years; source).
- In the US, due to abuse and neglect, since 2001: 15,000 (about 1500 annually times ten years; source).
- In the US, since 2001, due to abortion: 12 million (1.2m per year times ten years; source).
Not sure what it all means, but I'm inclined to think that there is some root cause, or rather a glaring absence, or perhaps presence, of something, in modern culture, that produces both bad gaming and bad parenting. You be the judge!
