May 01, 2022
so one of the most popular miniseries here on my channel is the

fault

of

video

games

, not my bad upbringing. I have made two of these

video

s. Two videos in this series so far. like I didn't know a kid would be playing video

games

too much and the parents just didn't know how to handle it they couldn't figure it out huh it's actually some of the most popular videos on my channel and I actually saw an article from a place called frag hero and the moment I saw it man I thought you knew this is going to be the third video in this series so today we're completing kind of a trilogy with everything we're about to do. take a look at this now, i think it's common knowledge at this point that video games have become a scapegoat for parents at just the right moment something goes wrong in their lives or in the lives of their children or in their realistic extended family or whatever is the first thing they run to. it's oh it has to be those video games man watch these video games destroying our kids turning them into violent sociopaths and destroying society oh what are we ever going to do you know falling to their knees throwing their hands up to the sky calling out to god but it's funny that in these situations very often you can just take one look at the

parenting

skills of the people raising these kids and you will instantly realize that everything that happened is more or less their

fault

, you know it is all their fault and they just don't know how to take responsibility. whatever happens and that's exactly what we're going to see in the current situation, today we're going to go over a larger discussion, but more or less taking a look at this specific example and seeing that you know exactly what's going on here, like so which seems like something that has become more and more common over the years as video games have exploded further and increased transactions and stuff have come along, and that would be kids stealing from their parents. credit card or use the credit card already connected to your playstation or xbox to buy hundreds of dollars worth of microtransactions now you can understand why this is a problem most people already go up from check to check at least here in the United States and when you have your kid here spending 300 bucks at the new biweekly store that could be the difference between paying the electric bill and going hungry that could actually mean a lot to a lot of people so it's a very stressful topic because I mean if you get into these people's shoes like you can see why they're upset but at the end of the day you'll notice a lot of different things about this when we look at it so I'm 40 foot 49 I'm going to get up get out get up get you i'll kick your ass why you got 49 thousand comments you better go to sleep go to sleep go to sleep it's ok for those of you who don't understand so the kid that's crying in the background or somehow he took his mom's credit card or used the one already connected to the system once again to buy almost 50 000 v-bucks in a fortnight so I went through and looked at this article and everything and apparently it's almost 300 real life bucks spent on v-bucks so you can definitely understand why dad is upset here that's a lot of money I mean it's like a bill for some people it's like electricity for a family or something so, so I understand why the mother is angry, but in this situation.

Let's be honest here, regardless of how it happened, it really does come back to haunt you and I know it's easy to blame the video games or blame the kid for doing it, but it's not really their fault either so I don't. I don't know if it's controversial to say, I mean, yeah, of course, to some extent, the kid is wrong, but from what I can hear, the kid cries and those things are pretty young, you know? We are talking as a seven. eight nine ten year old kid here me me kids do stupid things you know what I mean kids will go and do things even if they know it's wrong they will do things just because you know they lack impulse control and don't have a great decision making and I'm going to blame the mom in this situation I don't know if this is going to be controversial because you know everyone likes to blame video games and everything that's going on here but let me explain why she's interested so First of all, let's assume this. the kid stole the card right now that's a little bit worse because obviously the kid would have to go into his bag or something and take the card which would definitely be worse but still at the end of day number one he needs to pick up his kids they shouldn't steal number two, you need to make sure your kids don't steal such important things like your debit card or your credit card and spend money on that.

I don't have this problem like kids are always so prone to go and steal this kind of without outside influence, you know, steal their mom's card to spend money and everything, so how come more kids aren't doing it? good because as with me i grew up playing video games since i was like two or three years old, they have been in my life since the beginning, at least for as long as i can remember and i never took my family card and spent hundreds of dollars on video games i just knew better I knew if I did something like that mom optimus probably would have sent my playstation 3 through the roof of the house with one hand, but I wouldn't have a playstation or xbox after something like this happened if I spent that much money on the credit card from my parents, not only would they have taken away my games, but I would have been doing chores and saving that money, I would have been mowing the lawn, washing dishes, doing something nifty.

At dinner, I wish I had been doing something to pay off that debt and instead of taking the video game or, as you know, telling her kids to work with the money, the mom is like freaking out and just yelling at the threatening kid. to kick his ass and everything and it's like at the end of the day you're responsible for this situation, I mean, either you've raised your child to think it's okay to steal your card whenever you want and spend money on it or you put unsupervised access to your personal debit or credit card on your kid's playstation or whatever and basically hoped and prayed they didn't spend 300 on v-bucks anyway most parents don't have the problem that your child does something like that it really comes down to liking your home, whatever is causing this to be influenced outside of your home, that's fine, it's not really your child's fault that you didn't.

I always knew where my dad's wallet was and stuff. I always knew where the money was. If I really wanted to, I could have stolen it, but I never did because I was raised not to do that. of a father that you are in his life actually influences his life. I know this is a shocking moment for some people where they now realize that actually I have to be a parent but not like you really have to put in some effort to teach your kids not to be jerks and ruin society and i know it's not that deep as this kid didn't abolish democracy or something by spending 300 bucks in a fortnight but it's crazy to me that the mother is like blaming the kid like her eight year old is responsible that she doesn't use parental controls on a playstation so i don't know if you guys know this but at least on some game launchers and the like some consoles and stuff i'm pretty much its now a standard feature but as i've been seeing a lot more in recent years but now there are parental controls so you can put your debit card or whatever on your kids xbox or nintendo and everything else the only thing is you have to enter as a four pin digits or something or so to use the card to make a purchase or do you have to enter your email address or something to make it happen like they have these features where the parent has to authorize the purchase i'm pretty sure they even have similar apps where you can do it remotely with your phone but parents instead of using these features instead of you know how to do this or like to teach their kids not to do this they get mad when it happens and just act stunned with surprised face from pikachu like they weren't partially responsible for that so you'll get eighty bucks crazy because how did you get 49,000 bucks real bucks. use my card no more remove my card this is real ok so there is something in there i really want to focus on i think this really highlights the issue here ok so at the end of this you hear her say don't use plus my card remove this from your playstation of course not in such a nice tone but that's what it says now let's get this straight ok do you think that was enough to encourage this kid to never do this again further? off your playstation do you think that was enough to discourage your kid from doing something like this do you really think those were the perfect words that were going to make your kid say maybe i shouldn't do this anymore if i'm a rude kid who spend 300 on my mom's card in fortnite if she literally does nothing to punish me and then says you don't know how to use my card anymore that's not enough to stop me personally the first thing i would have done when my son spent 300 bucks on my debit card or whatever uh in a fortnight I'm taking the console for a good length of time you can spend that three hundred bucks but dammit if you use it on in game skins for the next five months like video games are a privilege, I understand that, for some reason, they have become a lifting mechanism for your children, where you can sit them in front of it for eight hours a day and that's how you do it. raising your child but it's a privilege you know you don't have to play video games to live a happy and fulfilling life so if my son is doing something like this I'm sorry I'm not filming a ticking over and telling him no use my card, your playstation is now my playstation and you won't play that until you get the money back with some tasks.
I don't know if that's too hard for the parents, but no, my son is mowing the lawn. he's helping with laundry he's cleaning some dishes or something until he gets that 300 wo upset because there's absolutely no way he's just going to let this go now people are like oh dispute it with the bank dispute it you know get your money back yeah that's great that works great and all but at the end of the day what does that teach your child you know exactly what you are teaching your child when you don't do anything you like to give him the consequences for his actions shrugs he says that don't do it again and then just go get your money back from the bank even if they are willing to refund your money or whatever some banks aren't going to refund that money because well you should have been a better parent and made sure that your child wasn't doing this it's ridiculous to me that people defend parents like this right people defend them without giving enough to do anything right I mean you can threaten Arrive with hitting your son's butt all you want, but if at the end of the day the punishment is to tell them not to do it again. you and each of your kids as I'm starting to see maybe the reasons why this happened in the first place through these videos and you know I've had parents email me or comment or whatever on these videos and they said oh optimus you're just a youngster bro you don't know what you're talking about you don't know how to raise a kid you probably don't even have kids of your own well i don't have kids of my own.
You're right about that, but to be honest with you, a lot of these hard

parenting
