I don't come to this site to discuss child rearing tips or how children should be raised or how they should act. I come here to discuss gaming news and what not and this most certainly doesn't fit into that.
It could be moved to off-topic. Would that not bother you then? You could just not read it.

Have you been reading these posts? How does he in anyway come across like that? The media always twist things for a better story. Hope everything works out for you.

Thanks to anyone who actually took the time to read what I wrote, even if you still disagree with what I've done. I don't mind if you still think I'm in the wrong, at least you got my side of the story and were able to make an informed opinion instead of just jumping to conclusions. I just got the xbox back a few hours ago. I don't even fucking know why, but it's back, I'm not complaining.

Thanks haha. People still seem to think I'm in the wrong there. When people hear about a kid lashing out against his parents they just assume the kid is completely at fault, although I would say this is true most of the time. It's kinda crappy, but people need to realise parents can be just as shitty and evil as kids can.

Hey, i'm glad everything worked out for you, tbh from the way you described the situation i didn't expect it to, but maybe there is a shred of decency in your father after all

As for the disrespectful part, I think it's kind of disrespectful to abandon your family and try and squeeze as much money out of them as possible.

As I have said before, I only called the police as a last resort. I sure as fuck didn't want it to come to this, but my mum and I both felt it necessary given the situation.
Like I said I am sorry for your personal problems. Still that is no reason for the police to get involved over a toy that your dad took away. Having the police come to your house has nothing to do with your personal issues. What you did was wrong. and no matter what your dad did, you had no right to call the police on his decisions as a parent.

your mom agreed with you calling the cops on your dad. Wow.

Good job on reading the first line of the post you quoted...The cops weren't called because of a parenting decision.

I believe the thread is called Father takes away kid's xbox, kid calls cop.
That is a parenting decision if the dad decides to take the xbox that is a decision that the parent made resulting in the kid calling the cops

If I am misunderstand something.. I guess tell me.

I believe you may not have read the three pages of the thread after that then...

You can't say a bike theft isn't a high priority. A decent bike is at least a few hundred dollars (NZD) and if he's anything like me, he might rely on that bike for transport.

Charming. So apparently, the ability to read is on the decline. That's just great. His posts are not that of a "pathetic fucking nerd".

What the hell is wrong with you? Are you mentally handicapped? Read the thread next time you dumb fuck.

OT: If you bought the Xbox then there's no reason for your dad to actually take it. I could understand if it was just for a few hours so you could work on your homework and whatnot, but since he actually STOLE it, then i would say that's a bunch of bullshit. I would be pissed off as well. At least you got it back though.

I'd teach my son to read, then when he didn't read threads, I'd kick the shit out of him and chuck him out of the house. DISOWNED BITCH!

He's using satire to show disapproval of people that are unable to read the entire thread.

"And what I was doing there, as everyone here in this room now understands, just in case there's anyone from the Mail on Sunday watching this, is I was using an exaggerated form of the rhetoric and the implied values of Top Gear to satirise the rhetoric and implied values of Top Gear. And it is a shame to have to break character and explain that, but hopefully it will save you a long tedious exchange of E-mails."

My. Fucking. God. You're retarded. Read the post I quoted. Then notice that he clearly hasn't read the thread AT ALL and I'm taking the piss out of him using a post similar to his to emphasize his stupidity. If you want to report anyone, report the guy I quoted, he was being serious about throwing his kid out of the house. Am I to assume you're both American, as Americans never seem to be able to understand sarcasm/satire?

@Ayx - Congratulations on using big boy words for once.

Better yet everyone stop quoting him so I don't have to read his posts and have my IQ drop a few points.

Maybe if your IQ drops a bit, then you might find some humor in the way he types.
