It depends on how sensitive you are...the only hesitation I would have is when they make babies. The 2 married adults stand closely to each other on top of the bed . I think they are supposed to be kissing each other...but they mostly kiss air. The wife ends up with a baby in her arms if it's successful. I'm sure your 10 year old sees a lot worse on TV if he/she watches any.

very squeaky clean & peeps do not die suddenly & dramatically like in "the sims." nothing traumatic. lots of "normal" family training stuff like brushing teeth, homework, story telling, etc.

I think it would be great for a 10 year old girl. It gives her a chance to see the results of choices especially poor ones. The whole structure is based on behavior modification. Do something right and get praised and do something wrong and get scolded. Encourage her to always reward a good behavior especially right after a scolding for bad. I always put them to doing something that is age appropriate and praise them for it.

my 8 year old and 9 year old play it, I just have to remind them to pause it. Cause they don't always remember to check on their little people and I don't want them to come back to a dead family.

I love how the wife scatters petals all over the bed first <3 I think it is fine for 10 years, though my daughter (13) gets a little sad when they die.

My little boys loves to play and watch this game with me. He's only 4 so he doesn't do it all on his own, but he is catching on quite fast. My other son, who is 8, isn't really interested in it. LoL

i think this is very kid friendly.kids see parents kissing before going to work or whatever.and they know when gramma or papa passes when they get old same thing here.nothing outta of the ordinary thats not a part of every day life.this is just my view on it.plus before you buy it you can try it for an hour to make sure you approve.you just wont see them pass away.hope this helps have a good one :0)

I think it's a great game for a kid. The only thing is that you may receive questions regarding what they are doing when they are trying to make a baby or where did that baby come from. If you're prepared for that talk then everything should be fine!

My son is 8 and has his very own family in it's 4th generation. He doesn't spend too much time thinking about the baby part, he loves to watch what they do and help train them. He is doing much better than me on my families. He has almost completed the collections and only has one upgrade left on the home. He has made plenty of money, but spends it on clothes all the time, lol
He hasnt asked me HOW they make the babies, lol, he just knows to put them together.. I think what makes him the happiest is getting to rename the peeps, he can pick the weirdest names!! He has played the other Virtual Villagers games, but never really enjoyed them like he has this one. Virtual Families is a keeper in my home!!!
