sigdiamond2000: It's so much easier to just not have kids.
washington-babylon: There is no need to document everything. Live your experiences. They will be stored in your memory for eternity.Ever hear of this little thing that happens late in life called Alzheimer's?/She's an overprotective control freak.//It's a wonder the kid isn't crazy... or is he?
Hyperbolic Hyperbole: So. Here is a magical piece of communication and information technology. Don't use it when there are people around. Don't use it to find facts and information when piqued by curiosity. If you find yourself alone and tempted to use it, go do something else. Do not use it for ANYTHING a 13 year old would be most likely to do with it. You can turn it on at 7:30am but most likely have school at 8am and you're not taking it there, and you get out at what. 2:30pm? 3pm? So for the next four and a half hours you have a phone, I expect you not to be using it for anything unless I call, or your dad calls, as it is not meant to be used as a replacement for human communication. But this is totally an awesome privilege and responsibility I'm handing you (which you don't really own btw so don't try pulling any of that "ITS MY PHONE" sh*t) and if you break it, you owe me $650.This seems like the sort of thing you hand an intelligent child so he can reason out the fact that there's no point to the gift you've given him so he can say no thanks BEFORE you buy one.Sounds like she meant to buy him one of these.[media.tumblr.com image 450x532]
JasonKY: I wonder how many of you who (rightfully) are criticizing this woman for the "it's a gift...it's still MINE" thing supported that laptop-shooting cretin for using the same logic.
Molavian: sigdiamond2000: It's so much easier to just not have kids.I bet it is. Of course, you become a developmentally challenged adult. Basically you remain a socially stunted semi-child for the rest of your life.
