And in about two years when the kid outgrows it or decides he ins't into pirates or decides it isn't cool?

Dads, don't beat up on yourselves. Parents who do over-the-top shiat like this aren't doing it for their kids. It's up there next to driving a Hummer in the "I'm compensating" sweepstakes.

EvilEgg: Seems like too much work for something they'll outgrow in a few years.


Where will that kid be in a couple of years, when he's outgrown his room, but he doesn't dare say anything, because he knows that his parents spent thousands of dollars building his special place? But it's not right now--his friends laugh at him and they won't come over anymore. He wants to tell his parents that he just doesn't like his bedroom anymore, but he can't stand to destroy the hopeful looks on their faces every time they poke their head into his room, hoping that he's still playing pirate and sliding down ropes.

His FATHER spends more time playing in the pirate ship then he does now, and he has to play along, hoping that one day his dad will look up and realize that he's 14 now! practically an adult! and what kind of teenager plays in a pirate ship? He couldn't even enjoy the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, they just depressed him and reminded him that after the movie, he'd have to go home and play on his pirate ship, just like his mother and father wanted him to.

He can't wait until he's 18 and he can go to college and put posters of nekkid women on his walls instead.

It's possible the kid, rather than being spoiled, will grow up with the idea that being an involved, devoted, and enthusiastic parent is a good thing to be and will grow up wishing to be the same.

Uchiha_Cycliste: Why is it that many of the posters in this thread seem to think the kid having this pirate bedroom means that he is spoiled rotten? Is it just impossible to imagine that he's a good kid, or that the parents did their job as parents and raised a good kid? In my head I'm imagining a dad who cares about his kid and has fun with him/interacts with him and a kid who both deserved the room and appreciates it. Everybody is happy. Surely some families out there exist with this family dynamic.


It's the obvious lack of income issues.  How many kids have a 25' ceiling in their room? Never mind dad with the mad handy skills... My FP in this thread sums it up a little, I do okay, I'm even pretty handy, have an okay house, a wonderful 6 yr old and we do a lot with her, and what we can for her, including a new loft bed (yesterday) to give her more play space, but this is so off the table in my world and my daughter's 8' ceiling... How can you be a dad and not be a little jelly?

You sound to me like you have no imagination at all. I for one would have LOVED this all the way through high school and college. Still would, really.

We live in a rental so I couldnt do anything near this cool for my son when he was born. But our landlord still let me paint the wall for him.

sedgr: I'm far more impressed by the guy that spends time with his kid and builds a treehouse for them out of scrap, than the guy that pays to have an expensive pirate themed installation put in his kids bedroom.


Per the article the guy designed and built it himself after talking to the kid about what he wants.

Again with this.  What is the motivation behind squealing on repeats?  I'm honestly curious.

Just when I wasn't feeling completely useless and inadequate as a father. Thanks, subby. And I just reset my son's alarm clock and got it right the first time, too.
