IHe's probably concerned that you will waste your youth infront of a computer screen
I have limited my kids computer use to 1hr per day after they literally spent the whole 6 weeks holidays
Watching YouTube and playing minecraft They don't like it but I know its for their own good
as a teenager these years are extremely important.
You need to consentrate on school to get a good degree or job to have a decent life you want to be earning
80k+ in your early 20's not stuck in a minimum wage job as a working slave which is what will happen if you spend most of your time playing games

Don't dis your dad

Pull up peer rewieved studies about how computer games improive congnitive skills, language, expose you to various cultures and improve hand-eye coordination in addition to not having harmful side effects that can be shown scientifically.

Gaming is awesome and helps people grow as people if you can moderate it.
Those that demand respect deserve only pity.

I think he is old enough to make his own decisions. I am not a parent myself but your parenting may not be the right way for him. So do not presume to know what is best for him. He is not your child.

Please read and have your dad read this report from IBM: http://www.ibm.com/ibm/gio/us/en/gaming.html

IBM and other major corporations also has other studies on how social gaming improves business skills. If you want to know why I know about this study, it's because I am a full-time employed grown up who does not work in games but has used my gaming skills and strategies in the workplace, and I have mentioned my gaming in interviews. At least once, a gaming story got me a contract position (profits were used to upgrade my computer).

My personal take: It is more of an American social thing - we use our games to be both cooperative and competitive. That's the part that carries over into the workplace. Read the report, and see if that will help you explain how your 'casual' gaming will help you get to 'business casual.'

Good luck! And of course, May the Force be with you!

It's not just Asian parents bro lol. I'm black and when I was your age (did I just say that? *shivers) my folks felt the same way your dad does. He felt I spent entirely too much time playing video games. I think what irked him most was the fact I worked & bought my own gaming systems. To him was a waste of money, but because I was spending money I made I got what I wanted. I was also an honor student taking mostly AP classes and I played basketball. Just like you, I didn't really have a lot of time to game. But in his eyes I was "always playing that Damn Nintendo". But the solution has already been mentioned.....a daily journal. You need to track your day.....everything you do. That way when he says "you're spending to much time gaming", you can show him that you're actually not spending as much time as he thinks. Also...I assume your dad pays for your sub. This needs to change. YOU need to pay for it with your own money that you've earned. And no...your allowance doesn't count as money earned. You can't get a "real job" at age 14, but you can get a hustle. There's something you can do for friends, other family members outside your house, or neighbors to make enough to pay for your gaming needs.

Trust me tho when I say "it's all part of growing up". Your only a couple of years older than MY oldest child. So I understand both sides. Good luck & may the force be with you.

No mate, I pay for my own sub. I usually only play in holidays so I pay for a month and cancel sub afterwards. I use swagbucks and usually by the time of a holiday, I have enough to get $25 in paypal cash.

Cool....well in that case, the journal will be your best option to get him off your back.

And If you think he's Trippin, wait till you try dating a female who's not a gamer.... everytime you look at a video game and she's like "you're always playing that game, you're not paying me any attention!" (Dang girl! It was a TV commercial! ) ROFLMAO


That's why I married a gamer lol

And yes I've tried talking to him about how I feel once when he told me to delete all violent video games on my computer, because "violent games are more addictive"; it just turned out to be a huge argument with him screaming at me at the top of his lungs.



By the way happy australia day
Be thankful you have a parent that cares about your future success and well being rather than just going along with today's "let kids do whatever the **** they want" trend.
