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?

not related to stealing but one year when I was like 12 or so, I had savecd up my money for months etc, and bought a butt-load of fireworks for the 4th. Well, leading up to the 4th my friends and I were lighting off bottle rockets etc. My dad said to stop etc. Next day, I did it again. He told me to stop again.

I did it again, and he took my entire huge stash of fireworks; never saw them again lol.
He also did something similar to my nintendo. I was neglecting my homework etc, and he told me I need to get in gear or he'd take it.

I didn't get in 'gear', and I came home from school and it was missing. Never to be seen again either lol

We were so poor, the only thing my folks could have done to make my toy where I couldn't play with it was to glue my pecker to my leg.

No leverage.

Do it. Do it now.
I printed this out recently, added "and video games" and posted it on the fridge as a reminder to my soon to be off to college son. Being a professional slacker doesn't pay very well.

I kind of wish I had stolen when I was a kid now that I think about it.

My dad would have beaten my ass....and then I would have split enough wood and scooped enough manure that the transformation would have probably been like Conan the Barbarian pushing the wheel. Probably be wearing chain mail over my chaps button up shirt.

Hell, my dad might have built one of these just so we'd have to push it.

He needs to go apologize to the family he stole from. That will get him straight.

That's all it took for me. Even though it was 25 years ago, I remember it vividly. One of the most humiliating experiences of my life. I never even considered it an option after that, and I'm grateful my father made me do it.

As a Parent of teenagers (one pre Teen at 12 and another at 15), I have found that I have a pretty good tolerance. I tolerate their Music, although I think it's awful. I tolerate the fact that my kids are attached to their phones, but so goes the World. I tolerate attitudes that come with the teen years - I remember my own issues all too well. I tolerate the hair styles and clothing options - honestly, that shit has never mattered to me

What I don't tolerate from my kids? Lying, Cheating, Stealing & Bad Manners

Lying is awful. One small lie begets another, and so on. It is the precursor to a life that leads down wide paths to no where. IMO, lying is addictive and leads to other awful habits down the road.

Cheating is the easy way out with many kids. They cheat on tests, cheat themselves out of hard work, and cheat themselves out of doing things the right way. I get on my kids a lot about cheating themselves from doing things the right way all the time. You think it's okay to do things half assed, and you will continue doing those things half-assed the rest of your life - Family, Work, Morals, etc.

Stealing - never had a problem with this from my kids, but stealing is wider than just taking someone's XBox game. It's stealing other people's idea's, taking credit for shit you did't do, etc, etc. I hope I don't have to deal with this with my kids. I might beat them to a bloody pulp if I ever catch them cheating

Last but not least, Manners. From the time my kids were old enough to sit up in their High chairs, we were teaching them good manners. I never really learned these things as a kid, but somehow I was smart enough to watch my Parents and learn just enough to get by. Having good manners as a kid will get you a long way in life - meeting friends, getting that first job, relationships, and in everyday life. My kids aren't perfect, but we are working on it.

Sell it. He needs that to be the punishment for him stealing. I would also "take" something he likes that belongs to him and let him know that this is what it feels like to be stolen from. Eventually give it back of course.

In 8th grade I got caught stealing a Playboy from Harry's IGA grocery store. Not only did I have to apologize and return it. I had to return the other nudie magazines I had stolen from the Blaylock drug store next door.

I haven't stolen anything since then.

If kids aren't held accountable for their actions and learn that lesson when they are young, they aren't going to learn that lesson when they are adults and they can really get in trouble.
