Watch it in video

No. 

No this is not funny.

Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.

Doesn’t matter. 

These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.

No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.

For wanting to play games. 

For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?

This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.

This is a sure fire way to get your kids to hate you.

do people not understand how much video games cost?

Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. Some people are good at it. Very good. Do not squander your child’s talents, help them realize them and strengthen them. There are other ways to get your child outside without destroying their games and everything they work for. This won’t solve anything; this will only set them back further.

do this to your childs anything and they will automatically hate you/not trust you

It doesn’t matter what it is

It doesn’t matter if its their video games or if its their smoking pipe

If you just destroy it/throw it away, you are giving no explanation as to why it’s bad/you don’t want them to have it

This can actually psychologically mess a kid up because you teach them that if someone doesn’t like something, they should destroy it

That can lead to some serious problems with socializing with others and other things

dont do that to people

dont

I had a notebook I used to write in all the time. I did that thing that Margo did in Paper Towns where she criss crossed her writing, but I did it so I’d have enough room to write everything. I took it everywhere wtih me and wouldn’t let my parents even start the car unless I had in in my lap. My dad got really annoyed by this and said I needed to throw the notebook away, what was written in it wasn’t important anyway (it was to me, very much so). So one day he took and ran it through the paper shredder.
Ever since I’ve had an intense fear of losing my notebooks and currently have a colletion of 53 blank notebooks and 16 that have been written in because I’ve started hoarding them.
Long story short, don’t fucking do this to your kids. You think it’s harmless and some people even think it’s clever, but you’re really just an asshole and are causing actual psychological problems for your children.

I have a plush rabbit that I’ve had since Easter of the year I was born (I was about 2 months old when I got it). It quickly became a comfort thing for me and I used to go everywhere with it as a child. When my mum and dad split up was when I became kind of dependent on having it around.
If ever I did anything wrong mum always threatened to take it away from me, which obviously caused my 6-year-old self to kick and scream and cry because I needed it.
One day I lost it for 6 or 7 months (turns out it was in my room the whole time but shh it was very well hidden & neither myself or my mum know how it got there)
That was the point that my mum realised she couldn’t threaten to take it away because holy shit I changed so much in those months.

Seriously, if your child is dependent on something, or takes great comfort in having it around
DO NOT TAKE IT FROM THEM.
It does not matter how old your child is, what their comfort item is, if it’s a video games console - don’t take it from them. If it’s their phone - don’t take it from them. If they’re 18 and still sleep with a teddybear - don’t take it from them.


This also goes for if your child is self-harming. If they have a blade in their bedroom and you find it DO NOT THROW IT OUT. Talk to them about it, be as supportive as you can, but do not think “oh well if I get rid of it they’ll be fine”. It can be seriously distressing and also lead to them becoming creative with what they use.

Now, mind you, I have no issue with playing video games for a living, or writing in journals or plush animals or whatever… but FUCK… none of you have suggested what really needs to occur here:

PARENTS NEED TO TALK TO THEIR KIDS!

There needs to be a level of communication between both parent and child that allows the parent to parent and the child to grow. Destroying what your child loves will only result in one of three things: Deep hatred and distrust; A driving force to prove the parent wrong; and/or a fear of losing what is sacred to the child.

I could really give two shits if the lawnmower video is real or not, but what it demonstrates is that it was easier for the dad to destroy what he though was the issue, rather than sit down and talk to his son and find out what the real problem is.

Who’s at fault? BOTH OF THEM.

The dad is a shitty half-ass father. And the son could have made an effort to explain why these games are important to him.

It should NEVER have gotten to this point because probably neither of them talked to each other, and that’s what all of you should be addressing. 

the last comment has it right, parents need to talk to their kids, they just can’t pin a 20 dollar bill to their collar and wish them the best of luck.  That’s a recipe for failure, and the parent has no one to blame but them self. 

The father in this video has NO FUCKING CLUE was long term damage he has done to his relationship with his son. As soon as Junior here moves out… he is GONE. Never to be seen again, and Dad will always wonder “How come my son never calls me to say hello?”

'CUZ YOU DESTROYED HIS CHILDHOOD, YOU LAZY FUCK!

I personally like video games :/

This is 100% a symptom of a culture where parents feel entitled to their child’s past, present, and future molding themselves the parents’ ideals.  Said culture also makes ACTUAL ABUSE socially acceptable and, in fact, praised in cases like this one and the girl’s laptop.

Other symptoms include:

  • PARENTS BEING 100% WILLING TO NOT GET THEIR KIDS LIFE-SAVING VACCINATIONS ON THE OFF CHANCE THAT IT WILL PREVENT THEM FROM HAVING AUTISM (LITERALLY A “BETTER DEAD THAN NOT STANDARD ISSUE” SCENARIO AND THAT’S FUCKING SICK)
  • Parents acting like anything they have given their children in good faith can be brutally destroyed in front of them as punishment or at the very least held over their heads as ransom for “good behavior” (this includes everything from games, to computers, to PETS)
  • Parents beating their children at the first sign of acting out without taking the time to ensure that requests are completely understood
  • Kicking LGBTQ kids out of the house for not fitting into the parents’ worldviews
  • Denying the need for accommodations for their children’s special needs because that would be accepting that their children are not “standard issue” (i.e. parents of deaf kids refusing to learn to sign and parents of blind kids refusing to get their child a cane)
  • Denying mental health issues, especially ones which are heavily rooted in their abuse by their parents
  • Shaming children for their body shape and body type, especially in young children whose bodies are wholly reliant on their genes and what the parents are providing for them nutritionally
  • Shaming children for their passions and interests, including forcing the gender binary upon children who’d rather say fuck it
  • Not nurturing their children’s passions by forcing said children to do activities that they do not enjoy
  • Parents feeling entitled to getting grandchildren out of their kids and harassing their children for it
  • Parents feeling entitled to their children “paying them back” for “all the nice things they’ve done for you”
  • THE CURRENT CULTURAL FAD OF RAGGING ON MILLENNIALS FOR NOT FITTING THE BABY-BOOMER AND GEN-X-ER IDEAL
