Gaming. Moral Panic. Mainstream Culture. What to do.

If you have boys aged between 8 and 18 you might be familiar with the violent video game Call of Duty. Black Ops 3. But even if your children are quietly playing Minecraft, are they online playing with other kids. With strangers?

Parenting keeps getting harder. We’re here to decide if now is a good time to panic, or if we should pick up a controller and just join in. 

Our panel this week are:

Colman Noctor, child psychotherapist and author of Cop On, a must read for modern parents

Aphra Kerr, lecturer in sociology in Maynooth University.

Jamie McCormack, games researcher and admin with gamedevelopers.ie 

Brid Horan, Mother from Galway.
