Adoption In The News

Good Morning everyone! We’ve made it to the end of another week, I hope everyone has fun plans this weekend.

A North Carolina man is upset with the children’s video game “Portal 2.” This family has 10 year old daughter who was adopted from China, and when they were playing Portal 2, where the main character is adopted, the villain of the game said “”Alright, fatty. Adopted fatty. Fatty, fatty, no parents.”

In the video, the father said he had no idea what to do and immediately shut the game off. Their daughter has not brought up the subject, so the family is taking it to mean she is not ready to talk about adoption yet.

As a parent what would you do in a similar situation? Also, how much responsibility should the video game creators take in making sure a game rated “E” for everyone is not offensive?
