International Nanny Association Responds to Video Game Baby Killing Achievement Called "Bad Nanny"

Organization Says Dante's Inferno Video Game Features "Poor Taste and Bad Judgment"
By: The International Nanny Association
Oct. 15, 2009 - PRLog -- The International Nanny Association (INA) has released an official statement regarding the Dante's Inferno Video Game which features a baby killing achievement, or trophy, called "Bad Nanny."

"INA feels this video game component of Dante's Inferno was created out of poor taste and bad judgment. INA is opposed to video games that promote and encourage players to "kill" babies, even in fantasy play. It is our opinion that this type of play may promote violence towards children. The name of the trophy or achievement, "Bad Nanny," is offensive to our association in that we strive to promote and educate the public regarding the selfless work nannies do to support families by providing quality in-home child care."

The International Nanny Association (INA), established in 1985, is a nonprofit and serves as the umbrella organization for the in-home child care industry. INA members include nannies, nanny employers, nanny agencies, educators and industry service providers. For almost a quarter of a century, INA has worked to professionalize the industry by setting high standards for industry professionals and nanny agencies. INA leverages the expertise of industry professionals from around the globe to help increase awareness about the industry, to develop the professional skills of nannies, and to educate parents about the benefits of hiring a qualified nanny to care for their children.
