    I'm looking back at my reply from way back, can't say much has changed. No, I don't drink coffee, but I will have some cold drinks sometimes.

    posted a message on I need serious help with my minecrafter son.

    From this whole thing, it only makes one think, 'who's in charge?' For the way I see it, the kid runs the household and the parent is just an exhausted servant. I mean, you're his father. If he's just going to be a spoiled whining brat about it, see to it that he gets some sort of punishment out of it. As another user said, take away the game. Maybe restrict access. Don't just stand there and let him scream his silly lines that have no sense or authority in the real world. It's a game, it's not real life. So man up and take charge like a true parent. If he cries, let him. If he whines, let him. It's going to do absolutely nothing for him in the long run. You are the one who has to be in control, no matter the circumstance here, or no matter how old he is. If he's older, he should know better and shouldn't embarrass himself, if he is quite a bit younger, he will only learn from experience, and if he knows that this behavior is wrong, he will eventually grow out of it.


    On a side note, many people would be inclined to believe that you are not the father of this boy. Maybe you're not an adult at all, or just maybe English isn't your first language. For the writing is more of a kid's to be honest. With the incorrect grammar and misspelling, not knowing what 'ban' means, (I mean, come on man, it's the same in the game as you'd see it anywhere else) Or maybe even the fact that the words are over exaggerated. By which I mean the excessive caps and question marks. Though in this case, I'll trust you in your statement, and will answer to the best of my ability.


    On another note, I'd not try to give out too much information on yourselves. It's not that good if the whole world ends up knowing your identities. I'm not saying you did anything wrong here, but names are not really necessary, even when asking for help in this scenario.


    On another side note, I'd be embarrassed as a parent to begin with. Here I am, not even out of high school myself, and I'm giving advice to an adult that needs help taking care of their own kid. There are a lot of places to go to, I mean, much better places than the very thing that's causing the problem. So how about you disconnect that computer, and sign your kid up for some activities. Placing him in a good soccer team, maybe a book club, anything that could take his mind off of endless gaming.


    Then again, it's not my decision to make, but as you got him the game, as he's your son, he's your responsibility.


    Cheers.

    Why are the middle ages sometimes called the dark ages?


    Because they had so many knights.

    At first I was intimidated by punning, but it’s groan on me.

    posted a message on Ever Think of Befriending Monsters?

    Having an enderman friend was always a big dream of mine, to be able to name-tag him and have him as something like a neighbor. For me, it didn't end so well as I ended up dying to the same enderman about 3 times.


    Either that or they teleport away before I can sometimes get close or when I'm not around.


    I always liked having snow golems as I had once dubbed them "cute". I still remember that one time when one had died. I was actually devastated about it. Even a few other people ended up sad to see it die.


    Witches are a pretty cool friend. Except for the fact they never invited you, but I like how much you gave for them to have the most comfort and giving them much to do. :) It's a cool statue as well. Maybe one day they'll be more welcoming.

    Honestly, when I had played survival, I tried to do a lot of things. One of those being a self-assigned mission to make a 'Monster Friend'. (Never actually worked out they way I wanted it to though) I tried to capture befriend many different monsters, though my favorites were the zombies and the snow golems. (The endermen and skeletons never worked out well).


    So my questions are these: Have you ever tried getting yourself a monster friend? If not, then if you could get yourself a monster friend, which one would it be?
