I cannot sufficiently express my appreciation for cute things
"The royal archmage can’t actually perform any magic. He just maxed out his Bluff and now he’s in way over his head."
No this is not funny.
Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.
These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.
No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.
For wanting to play games.
For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?
This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.
This is a sure fire way to get your kids to hate you.
do people not understand how much video games cost?
Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. Some people are good at it. Very good. Do not squander your child’s talents, help them realize them and strengthen them. There are other ways to get your child outside without destroying their games and everything they work for. This won’t solve anything; this will only set them back further.
do this to your childs anything and they will automatically hate you/not trust you
It doesn’t matter what it is
It doesn’t matter if its their video games or if its their smoking pipe
If you just destroy it/throw it away, you are giving no explanation as to why it’s bad/you don’t want them to have it
This can actually psychologically mess a kid up because you teach them that if someone doesn’t like something, they should destroy it
That can lead to some serious problems with socializing with others and other things
dont do that to people
I had a notebook I used to write in all the time. I did that thing that Margo did in Paper Towns where she criss crossed her writing, but I did it so I’d have enough room to write everything. I took it everywhere wtih me and wouldn’t let my parents even start the car unless I had in in my lap. My dad got really annoyed by this and said I needed to throw the notebook away, what was written in it wasn’t important anyway (it was to me, very much so). So one day he took and ran it through the paper shredder.
Ever since I’ve had an intense fear of losing my notebooks and currently have a colletion of 53 blank notebooks and 16 that have been written in because I’ve started hoarding them.
Long story short, don’t fucking do this to your kids. You think it’s harmless and some people even think it’s clever, but you’re really just an asshole and are causing actual psychological problems for your children.
I have a plush rabbit that I’ve had since Easter of the year I was born (I was about 2 months old when I got it). It quickly became a comfort thing for me and I used to go everywhere with it as a child. When my mum and dad split up was when I became kind of dependent on having it around.
If ever I did anything wrong mum always threatened to take it away from me, which obviously caused my 6-year-old self to kick and scream and cry because I needed it.
One day I lost it for 6 or 7 months (turns out it was in my room the whole time but shh it was very well hidden & neither myself or my mum know how it got there)
That was the point that my mum realised she couldn’t threaten to take it away because holy shit I changed so much in those months.
Seriously, if your child is dependent on something, or takes great comfort in having it around
DO NOT TAKE IT FROM THEM.
It does not matter how old your child is, what their comfort item is, if it’s a video games console - don’t take it from them. If it’s their phone - don’t take it from them. If they’re 18 and still sleep with a teddybear - don’t take it from them.
This also goes for if your child is self-harming. If they have a blade in their bedroom and you find it DO NOT THROW IT OUT. Talk to them about it, be as supportive as you can, but do not think “oh well if I get rid of it they’ll be fine”. It can be seriously distressing and also lead to them becoming creative with what they use.
There was a time when I came home from college and all of the history books I had collected that I left there weren’t where I usually had them. I nearly had a panic attack because I was afraid that my parents had thrown them away (sometimes they would complain that I spent too much of my personal money on books so that was why I was afraid that they had thrown them away).
My dad saw how upset I was getting and asked me what was wrong. When I asked him tearfully where my books were, he dropped everything to reassure me that no, no, no, they hadn’t thrown them away, they were in the closet down in the basement (they had moved them because they were too close to where our dogs could get them and they didn’t want them chewed on and that closet was the only place with enough space for them). My parents had to spend a good half hour convincing me that my books were safe at home and that I didn’t need to haul them all to school with me. And these are parents who have never, ever done something like this to me or any of my siblings.
So yeah, don’t do this to your kids. Ever.
I knew a kid in high school whose mom literally burned his pokemon cards in front of him.
I LAUGHED SO HARD I CRIED
THIS IS THE ONLY THING I CARE ABOUT OMFG
BUT THE MOM WHO DRAGS HER CHILDREN AWAY IN THE BACKGROUND OMG
I think this is a fair question.
Guinea pigs are affectionately known as pooping machines. Some pigs poop in a certain area of the cage, but others will poop all over the place. That said, they mostly poop in their cage (sometimes with floor time, but less so). I have personally never had a guinea pig poop on me.
I have been peed on. Some pigs can go for an hour or two without a potty break, but others just let things flow. It’s really on a case by case basis. If you have a leaky pig, I suggest using old towels to hold them, and you can also try to learn their potty signals (fidgety, aggressive nibbling)
We’ve always held our pigs on towels and that takes care of it pretty well. Most pigs let us know when they want to go back.
