    I can't see the stupid video but if all that happened was a cruel denial of a gaming system, then it's not that bad, assuming it's not a commonplace thing and assuming that it was a real child's horror to begin with! If I were that kid, I'd have shredded my dad's work papers! I've done it for less! Or maybe more. Hmm.

    There are loads of worse cruelties against children. Such as physical abuses and neglect and all kinds of others imaginable in which children dutifully(even rebelliously!) pattern themselves into the ignorant, assholing cyclical mold that their parents made of them or beat into them!

    Let's observe some better footage of foolish people trashing the world with their backhand assing off with procreation!: Worst Parents in the World Now see why that kid might've been a bit better off? If just a wee lil'bit!

    A fav commercial which always helps me reconsider having children...though I can't help but laugh hysterically ever single time I watch it or see such a thing reenacted for my viewing (horror) pleasure in RL... was the Xbox rejected kid any worse? I wish I could see!

    After reading the story, I can't even bring myself to watch the video!!
    I'm afraid I'll bawl my eyes out, and I won't be able to forget about him for weeks,
    and then I'll have to keep checking in so that I can find out when he finally gets an XBox.

    It really is amazing how cruel adults can be sometimes!

    I can't wait until they get theirs.

    I just figure home should be the place where you are safer from that BS not the center of it.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Unless that kind of joking is common in the family, and everyone gets it, otherwise, if you promise a child something, then, you should deliver it.

    It's not about telling them to 'grow up', 'this is the real world'. Cynicism sets in soon enough. Life always takes care of that.

    But the fact is, children learn by imitating their parents. And if you wonder why the younger generation is getting more selfish, and more self-centered, perhaps we should look back to their first role models.

    The way to treat a child is with respect. You speak to him/her as an adult. You deliver what you promise. And in return, ask the same measure.

    That's how you groom boys into gentlemen, and girls into ladies.

    One leads by example.

    Having said that though: an Xbox is rather a trivial thing. As DD said, there are worser cases of neglect. This should not, however, detract from the real issue: which is that of a broken promise. Think: what example are you setting for your child this way?
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    I absolutely agree 100%.
    Home is supposed to be a safe haven from all the garbage the world dishes out.

    I gave in and watched it.

    Did you see his chest cave in?
    I could tell he felt like he'd been punched in the stomach.

    I betcha he can't wait until the day he's old enough to move out and he doesn't have to be their victim any more.
    Vicious, cruel, inhumane, child abusers!

    Is there a smilie of someone ripping someone else to shreds with their bare hands?
