My 14 yr old son Christmas gifts. Most of his list is for his ps 4. One was a the ps4 vr.
Well tonight he was swinging his phone changer the end flew off and hit his tv.. now his tv won't work. I told him well you choose, do you want the ps4 vr or a new tv. Because I am not getting both. He is mad because I am making him give up a gift. Without the tv the vr and most of his gifts on his list are useless. The t.v. he just got in March. So if he want another he is going to have to give up his expensive gift and go a month without a tv and playing his game . I said sorry. It is consequences. Don't be swinging shit in your room.
So the TV would cost under $100 to replace and you had planned to spend upwards of $500. Plus you are taking away any of the surprise of getting gifts...so why bother to get him anything? Talk about a ridiculous consequence. Why not have him earn half the money for the television and then go about your holiday per usual?
