Parental Advice- Re: Xbox 360

Alright, my 11 year old son said a friend of his "gave" him his copy of Black Ops 2, because he thought he had lost it... got another copy and gave this other copy to my son.

I don't want my kids playing these violent video games, as it is, so I wouldn't buy this game for him.

Well, my son's friend's mom just called me and told me that they couldn't find the game anywhere... and they last remember playing it when my son was there.

My son then changed his story when confronted, saying that he was "borrowing" it and that his friend said that he could.

This is the third instance of him grabbing something that doesn't belong to him. He used my stored credit card in the XBOX to buy a bunch of credits to download games about 7-8 months ago. He took a gold peace sign necklace from my mom about 4 months ago. And now this.

So, should I sell the XBOX 360 or not? My instinct says yes. What say you?

TL;DR my son stole something for the 3rd time in the past 8 months, should I sell the XBOX?

Be it noted that I don't have kids.

But I would take it away. Just make sure he goddamn sure knows why. Make sure you tie all the events to it.

He's deleting all of his progress files from the XBOX right now, as we speak.

I don't have kids either, but I say take it away. 11 is too young for all that stuff. 14 is a good age to start all that.

I won't let my son play Black Ops either, but I do let him play some violent games. he knows the difference between game world and real world. I would definitely take it away for some time as punishment for sure as well as a few other things but that's just me.

I'll add my voice to the list of those saying "I don't have kids, but I would take it away". Not sell, though. Ground. And make sure he understands why. There have to be consequences or he'll just keep doing what he's doing.

I would however also say 'listen to your instincts' in most situations. They're usually right.

Sit him down and explain the negatives of theft, and how someday it will effect him and the things he owns.

This, take his Xbox away, (don't get rid of it). While you're speaking to him, look at him as though he's repulsive.
This method should shame him into understanding that his underhanded actions are also repulsive.
Also, try to setup something where he can earn his Xbox back through positive behavior. Something that would take 2 weeks to a month to accomplish.
Problem solved. Your welcome.

I have to stop reading here at home.

When this photo came onto my screen, my oldest who can read now had walked up behind me...didn't know it...and started laughing, reading this sign out loud.

We used it as a 2 minute learning session....and had a discussion about about if it was ok to steal $.25 or $25 and what was the difference. There is none.

now they are back to reading and the wild man is singing some song about Jake and a pirate so we're back to normal.

1. Take away the Xbox for 3 months.
2. Password protect all purchases.
3. When he gets it back....the Xbox gets moved to where he has to play it where you can see.
