    My parents were like that until they found out that my career choice was computer science... So now they let me do whatever the hell i want on MY computer, They won't let me touch any other computer in the house because they think i'm going to esplode it or something......

    If you want to go into a computing career tell your parents that it's important for you to be around computer so that you can familiarize yourself with your future career, because it will give you a head start that most kids won't have, meaning you could possibly be at the top of your class in college.

    One other thing. I found that having a logical well thought out discussion/debate with your parents is a LOT better than yelling at your parents to let you do stuff. Try to think of some smart things to say. Works with my parents


    Please NEVER Buy a iPad, iPod Touches are OK, but anything else Apple made SUCKS. If i were you i would get a Motorola Xoom... Also never buy a tablet with lower than Android 3.0

    I got a zune

    And as I said to ded, homework or not, I'm not allowed computer in my room. I'm trying to buy a Xoom but I want to get a data plan with it which I can't without my bank info which my parents won't give me...
    Get an iPhone.
    Buy a shitty Symcard and get calling + texting for $15 a month.

    I mow lawns on Saturday's around the neighborhood for $20-$30 each and I got enough (from $0) for an iPhone in a month.

    Thats how I argue with them lol. Yelling at them seems to work better for my brother than debating with them for me...he has anger issues and freaks but seems to get his way in the end.

    Also, I'm looking into engineering or Comp Sci. They are like "Sweet" but don't do shit about it.

    I had a phone but it died, I don't really need one. The thing is, I have enough money to buy the Xoom tablet and 2 years of data right now but without my parents help, I can't buy it...

    Tell them if you can use the laptop in your room with the door open...It ain't like your watching porno...To also extend the time of your PC usage Just as long as your grades don't drop.
    Tell them even when your on the PC your grades will not drop once they start dropping you will use time etc..

    How the hell am I going to watch porn in my room without internet?

    I've even offered to let them install some shit on my laptop so they can see exactly what sites I've been to but they still refuse.

    Oh since you're thinking about going into computer science, ask your parents for books and shit on how to program, and then read the fuck out of them, this will give you more time on your computer because you need to have a computer to program, what are they gonna make you do, program with pen and paper? Also is the bank account your college fund account?

    So other rooms have internet but you don't? And porn is downloadable I believe, just like everything else is.

    Just prove you're responsible and trustworthy enough to have a Lap top/PC in your room.

    That's what I did, and my parents even bought me my own router and Modem so I can have a semi strong signal for all my Internet using devices
