My parents watched Oprah once, they force it into my eyes, and make up a new rule on the spot: 1 hour of computer and 1 hour of TV a day Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
(just because they saw it on Oprah, where she was dealing with a family that was insanely wasteful and the 5/6- year-old kid was always playing video games)
Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
P.S. Anyone else having to deal with (having to put up with) this type of crap? Rolling Eyes

Am I allowed to laugh?
They restricted you from watching TV because of something they saw on TV? Laughing

Well, sorry about that.
Too much time spent on the computer is definitely bad, but... I mean, one hour? Seriously? What about Saturdays?! You must be very bored.

That would probably ware off. I doubt your parents would care for something they learned on TV for long.

@Maxaxle: Duh. That sounds craptastic. Shocked
My parents always tell me that I'm sitting in front of my computer way too much, too, but all they actually do is say that. Nothing else. They say that, after all, it's my own decision what I want to do.

Soon your eyes will bleed and you will cough up pixels.

I'm sitting 5 hours a day in front of my computer, since about 7 years now. And I'm still fine. Rolling Eyes

Pfsh. Your siblings are the nerdy ones, I bet!
My little brothers call me goofy names no matter WHAT I'm doing. It's their job.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that sees the irony in this.
You just need to be convincing and explain it to them that you're old enough and you're not a little child.
The children they saw on Tv shouldn't be playing that much at their age, If a 5 year old boy is playing video games all day long, it's his parent's fault, not the fault of computers or televisions.
