The funny part is how terrible the spelling/grammar is on behalf of the parent. :)

Me too. Most parenting today seems to consist of little but hollow threats. More follow-through would improve things.

I think it's great that he started the auction for a penny. That thing was out the door if he had to give it away. :laugh:

It also puts things in perspective for those parents who complain about their kids when they are really quite well behaved.

We have our kids start each day with 0 points. If they have positive points they can do the things they like (play X-Box, have friends over, watch TV etc, ride bikes whatever) but they have to do something good FIRST to earn a point (clean room, wash dishes, play with baby sister for a while). Of course bad stuff knocks 'em back down a point... Makes them wake up each day determined to do something helpful :) Maybe I should start them each day at -10 points, heh

Any--who--velio, I'd say that dad is on the right track.

I've donated a few game consoles to the concrete a few floors below. Instant G.P.A and behavioral modification, I like to call it. Make them watch it hit the ground for best results. Then go play frisbee with their software discs.

interesting.
I think it was Buzz that was trying to make some kind of metal box with a timer so his son could only play PS2 an hour or two a day. I wonder if that ever worked out...

Oh, I've done that. Basically, what we did with a PS2 box was we put a timing switch on the bottom as a regulator for incoming power. 2 Hours, then it goes off.

One has to wonder how far along 13yo, uh, "Anakin" is to becoming a full-on misfit already.

I'd be curious to contact the seller to see if it did any good.:) Is little "Ani" a straight A student, well-behaved and well-spoken-of now?

Maybe he'll remember it was that incident that made him pull his head out of his rear that led to the discipline necessary to make it to the NBA?

Who am I kidding... The NBA is full of lazy punks he's going to think his dad was an a**hole :frowning:
