I died a little today. My kids want a PS4 and not my old PC.

I want to give them my pc so I can get a new one. I think they know.


Let's just point this out before we have more people jumping to conclusions. Lol, my kids would do the same. Luckily they both want a PS4, and don't mind waiting until there's multiple games they want before we buy one. Its less about entitled kids and more about... "yeah right Dad/Mom. You just want a new toy."

Decades ago a parent's biggest fear would have been "mom, dad, i'm gay" or "I got a girl pregnant"

In 2014 a parent's worst fear is "Mom, dad, I'm a sony pony", at least it's a sign the world's a better place...

Your kids are smart. You need to learn to respect other peoples opinions even if you think they are wrong.

Kids don't know anything about quality. It's all about what's cool and trending at the time. The kids in school are all yapping about the PS4, not PCs. So of course you have to have a PS4 to be cool. If you have a PC and say,"Hey, I have a gaming PC which is much better than a PS4." then other kids will just say you're a nerd and outcast you.


:sadface: its the truth

Get new friends lol. I'm a console gamer, but I've always been impressed by my friend gaming rigs. The only reason I dont game on PC is I'm attached to having a controller, and god knows controller vs mouse = me losing.

Get the ma part-time job and have them in earn it. Going to school is already like a full-time job. A part-time gig while working a FT job is how one earns money to spend on things you don't really need.

This is actually how I wound up getting my first computer. I had to crush aluminum cans, rake leaves, mow lawns and other menial tasks until had enough for half the computer and my mom coughed up the other half for my birthday.

The worst part of the deal was that it was a Commodore 128 and I had no disk drive so I had to wait another 6 months for Christmas before I could do it all over again for the disk drive (which cost about the same as the computer due to the way it was made).

But yeah, if they really want it, make em earn it. Of course, if they buy it 100% with their own money, it'll be worse when you try to tell them they're grounded from the PS4 for not behaving or whatever, but ultimately it's still "your house, your rules".

Then you get to hear them say "I can't wait till I can move out!" and you can say "Me either!"
