Here’s just one image from a slideshow of many which you can view over at All Voices of a South Korean boot camp for ill disciplined children, many of whom have become addicted to playing video games. Apparently a crack squad of Korean military psychotherapists have discovered that by stripping children to the waist and have them rub snow onto their exposed flesh will in fact rid them of any further desire to play a games console. It’s science and you can’t argue with it.
Many of the kids who are forced to attend these camps by their parents openly confess that they’ve become obsessed with games and as one training instructor explained: “Nowadays, the children are selfish and really dependent to parents. They even become violent and disrespect the older. Moreover they easily quit whenever encountering problems. It can not be accepted in our country. For that reason, the parents would like to send their children to the military training course to help them to be better and win themselves”.
Here’s an idea, let’s just put this out there but how about a similar military boot camp for the work shy, lazy, reality television addicted parents? You know the ones who have quite clearly failed at bringing up their kids and are so idle they’d rather let the military take care of them? Just a thought.
