I think it's a very solid reason to leave. Heck if I were a judge in a court, I'd support the reason to kill/divorce/disavow-child/child-custody etc over an Internet connection... Especially when diablo 3 needs the fucking Internet with a good ping 24/7!!! *takes long deep breaths* ... Sorry about the nerd rage....
Here is my ten year old brother's wishlist that he told my parents and I. "A decent gaming laptop with 2 gigabytes of ram, a recording software so I can upload things to YouTube and a faster Internet connection." Why does he need this? He wants to play Minecraft.. When I was 10, I wanted a cool-looking bike.
You deserve that. Lol it's that era where Internet is very important for young adults. I was walking through the local hospital and saw young kids 6 to 9 years old with iPads and iPhones. I still remember my old tonka trucks and sand box.
I understand maybe allowing your child to play on your iPhone/iPad when they were bored, but having their own? I think that's ridiculous. MAYBE an iPod touch, with Internet and YouTube disabled so you can only use it for the games, but iPads? Wtf? What's wrong with going outside and playing? :/
It's a shame, really. I'm almost 17; of course I love the Internet (I am on FML after all :p) but I also go outside and do stuff! I ride my horse, plant my garden, or even just sit outside and read. It's better than sitting inside on my ass playing on my iPhone or watching YouTube videos. :P
Ouch, why am I getting thumbed down? It's true, parents are more worried about their children being kidnapped, paedophiles, strangers, not to mention other kids. They can't spend all their time watching their kids, so why not just buy them an iPod they can play while near by?
Because we don't need an even lazier generation. Parents SHOULD get off their asses and go outside to watch their kids if they're so concerned. Too many parent rely on electronics to babysit their kids nowadays. Seriously, spend some quality time with them, rather than put an iPod in front of them.
52- Yeah, I'm almost fifteen and my mom gets paranoid when I try and so much as cross the street. I'm not allowed to play outside, really. I sort of did when I was younger, but my parents feel like if I even stick a toe out of the door, I'm going to get raped and murdered.
142- Well, I got my first phone when I was seven, but I only used it to call my dad when he was stationed away. And I had an iPod, but I only had stuff like Hannah Montana songs and Jonas brothers on it. I also had my own computer, but only really played games on the Disney Channel website. It's possible to give kids technology without them going overboard.
