To the Editor: The Entertainment Software Rating Board agrees with Dr Thompson and Mr Haninger1 that parents should be involved with their children in selecting computer and video games. We also agree that parents should discuss game content with their children, and that pediatricians can play an important role in educating parents about the rating system.
