The American Academy of  Pediatrics has issued a new policy statement, reported by CBC,  warning parents of the potential damage which can be done to children who use violent video games and media.  Although the suggestions may not be new, they do reinforce the possibility that some children are more vulnerable to the impact of violent games and media than others.  The Canadian Pediatric Society is forming a task force to study the issue as well.
