Roblox Warning!

This is one post that I wasn’t going to post, but I think is important. This one is hard for me to write, but I want people out there to be aware of what their kids are doing and how it could affect others.

Over the last few months, I have noticed a change in my 7-year old’s behaviour she has become quite angry and aggressive towards us. It’s not her usual behaviour to do this especially towards me.

Over the last few weeks, it’s become worse to the point where she is saying things like “She hates herself”. and if we say no to her she will say things like “You just want me to die”. This has lead us to seek medical help for her as we are scared for her welfare.

After talking through her emotions we worked out her problems have arisen from a game she has been playing. In the game, she stated that if she doesn’t look a certain way they call her “UGLY”, and they have said she should “GO AND DIE”.

The game I am talking about is ROBLOX.

On this game, the kids can be cruel. We have tried deleting this game, but our daughter gets angry and quite violent, so my husband will play it with her, and when they are mean he removes her from the game and reports the user, but our daughter still gets back on there, even getting up early and playing. This game is like an addition to kids.

We didn’t know how this would affect her. We are devastated about what it’s done. I wanted to share my story to let others know what this game is doing to children. What the effects of what they say can effect someone’s mind.

I couldn’t imagine losing my daughter. I know we have a long process of changing her mind process, but I’m grateful we worked it out now before it was too late.

To other’s out there with kids on this game please be aware of what they are doing and their Mental Health.

  1. Good to know about, thanks for sharing! I generally don’t play online games where there are real people I’m interacting with, but I can see how there’s always the risk of hurtful comments if someone does. I hope your daughter feels better.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. I understand what you mean I don’t like online games myself, but the kids watch these games being played on YouTube which makes them want to play. It’s crazy. Thanks for caring about my daughter she will be ok ?

  2. Good evening, to be honest am, I think you should remove that game and find some other activity some sports or dancing class with nice and kind people around her, I don’t have kids so I m not the best person to give advice, but I felt like maybe it should help??

    1. Thank you for your comment it’s much appreciated, but we have tried everything to get her off the game. The issue we have is she becomes violent when she doesn’t have it, which then entails us to get it back to stop her. In the end this is why I reached out for medical help, I couldn’t do it anymore she is becoming a different person, it’s like an addiction she is seeing psychologist to help her now. I do appreciate your advice thank you for taking the time to comment ??

  3. It’s good that you are monitoring their online activity. Kids can be pretty mean online, since they can easily forget that there’s another human behind that screen at the other side. They also do not yet understand the effects of their trash talk to the other person. It’s all fun and games to them, but the impact to others can be deep.
