A new survey carried out by the Kaiser Family Foundation has shown that parents in the U.S. are relatively unconcerned about unsuitable content within video games, when compared to other mediums. In the survey, 60 percent of parents said they were concerned about the amount of sex their children are exposed to on television, with 53 percent concerned about the amount of violence. Furthermore, 34 percent said they were concerned about inappropriate content on television, above all other media, with 15 percent citing the Internet as the primary area of concern, 10 percent movies, 7 percent music, and video games coming in last at 5 percent. A majority of 57 percent of parents also claimed that they were happy to keep current rating systems, rather than switch to a single system for television, movies, videogames and music. Additional information on the survey can be found at the Kaiser Family Foundation website.
