Hi there guys, I know that there are threads with children committing crimes over video games or technology, like that one by the guy with that Mii avatar. I think that this is a very interesting topic, to discuss with each other. I just want to see your opinions on children that have access to technology. It's annoying to see, and they're spoiled, pretty much by their parents. I'm blaming parents for how most children from ages 5-13 are spoiled. I would see my mother's friend, forcing his own mother to buy him a tablet, which he doesn't need for his age, or kids playing and raging on COD. Don't you ever feel like spanking children over this? I'm 13 years old, I have access to a PS3, 3DS... Whatever. But these are just gifts, and I appreciate that fact, but I never ask for pieces of technology, since I saw what children turned into. My parents never raised me being spoiled, since I grew up from age one, to age four in a country where there isn't that much access to technology in my village. But when I moved here in Canada, there were those flobby TV's and shit, and I gotta admit, looking at them made me feel excited to play with them. Yeah, every child would like to experiment with these, and I have. But when I learned about the rights and wrongs, and became more mature growing up, I realized that I don't really need a computer, or a tablet, for a primary/or junior kid. I usually use my laptop for my studies and with free time, I temp, or play a quick 30 minutes on the computer on a game that is downloaded. I'm glad i'm not spoiled I see people in my school holding S3s and shit, my age, and kids that are ages below, and they end up getting trouble, lol. It's stupid. What's your opinion on these kids having access to technology, as well as how video games, and their parents?
