Opinion: It’s Time For The Kiddie Version of the Sims, Military Style

The Department of Defense has come up with a nifty way of keeping little boys and girls in touch with Mommy and Daddy serving their country. Only the whole thing just seems to be even more traumatic for the tykes.

Because of the six years of year the DOD has finally figured out that lots of little kids don’t have a parent around. Have no fear now kids, Mom and Dad’s image can come to a computer screen in front of you. Now mind you it’s just their image and that feedback they are giving you is pre-programmed. It’s fine though, after all it’s the thought that counts, right?

The program will allow a child to have a simulated conversation with their parent about everyday topics. It’s kind of like the Sims but scaled down to good nights and I miss yous.

Yep, you read right. The DOD is making a computer program that looks and sounds like Mommy or Daddy but isn’t. I guess now it’s okay to teach the young that the government doesn’t mind a little white lie here and there.

The program is aimed at three to five year olds.
