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?

I stole a little fridge magnet from the ace hardware at ranchmart on 95th once when I was like 10 with my mom. The bitch found out and drove me all the way back and made me hand it back and apologize infront of a full line of customers. lol. It was very demoralizing but I learned my lesson. I still steal food from my friends fridges from now and then.
Sell the xbox and make him return the game to his friends family in person. He needs to learn right now that that kinda sh*t aint acceptable

When I was 6 or 7 years old, I stole a little Gobot toy from K-Mart. When we left K-Mart, we went to TG&Y across town. In between the two, I started to feel super guilty about what I'd done. I was so scared of punishment from my parents, that I ended up leaving the Gobot at the TG&Y store. So I effectively reduced K-Mart's Gobot inventory by 1, and increased TG&Y's Gobot inventory by one. I always wondered if that mystery ever showed up on some silly inventory report...

Don't take the XBOX away permanately, just hide it for a couple/few months. When he asks where it went, tell him a friend of yours got his house robbed and lost his XBOX, so you're letting the friend borrow yours.

Shame the shit out of him, make him go over and apologize to their whole family. My mom did something like that when my brother was like 6 and stole a pack of gum. Squash it now.

Game is already returned to his friend. And I told his parents beforehand to say that they are very disappointed in him and that he is not welcome to their house for awhile. But, that they think he is a good guy, but that he made a bad decision.

I really think the XBOX should be sold. So, it's going on Craigslist.

The only problem is, is that my daughter gets vicariously punished and she didn't do anything. She loves playing the dance games on the XBOX kinect.

Punishing the other kids is the one part of smashing it I hadn't really considered.


I think you don't take it from them....you ban him from using it for a month for each instance of theft.

Option #1 happened immediately after my son's friend's mom called me to ask if we knew where the Black Ops II game was... my son lied to me, and that is unacceptable behavior in my house.

I immediately planned on going over there with him to return the game, as well. And we did that.

Option #4 I deleted his gamertag... and deleted the other gamertags except for his sister's. Her gamertag is an offline tag that is also locked down with a password that only I know... and have a timer on there for 45 minutes max.

STILL WEIGHING the selling of the XBOX. I'm trying to minimize the scar tissue that parents instill in their kid's psyche...

I would take away the XBox indefinitely. Tell him that if he ever wants it back.....he has to earn it....and that it's not going to be easy.

I'd also make sure that you don't just give into him after a couple of months.

Part of this has been a lapse in parenting and establishing consistent boundaries coupled with the fact that the child is too young to be playing "M" games. You say he is too young to play those games and won't pay for them but you allowed him to keep and have access to one when one magically appeared. Plus he has had access to the internet and your credit card and the Xbox with improper supervision. And yet he is the problem here?

Take away the Xbox and make a plan to start making better parenting choices.

Hold the kid responsible for his choices but some introspection on the parents actions is also needed.
