clockworkrobotic: bigancestorenergy: ouma-anti: whatjordylikes: danielle-mertina: blackqueerblog: Some parents really don’t understand the difference between actual discipline and hurting your kids. This teaches a kid nothing except needing to hide what makes them happy because they’re scared their parents will destroy it. Wow…what a terrible parent. Minecraft is A LOT of work, diligence, and creativity. The parent should have been encouraging that. And why does a 9 year old need to wake up every day at 7 am during a pandemic? What’s wrong with this person? I can foresee an estranged relationship in the future. Because this parent is out of their minds and more interested in exacting punitive control than being a loving caregiver. Y'all wonder why some kids are the way they are? This is it. why on earth does a NINE YEAR OLD CHILD has to wake up at fucking 7 am during a pandemic? also children may require up to TWELVE HOURS of sleep he’s not being defiant—without the threat of a ridiculous and unnatural hour he MUST be awake at he’s actually following his natural circadian rhythm which is actually HEALTHIER for him what they’ve done is broken his trust in a MAJOR way. he does not feel safe or in control. which is why he is refusing meals. honestly? if they keep this behavior up—let alone just not apologizing and finding the save file for his game—he’s gonna develop some dangerous coping skills like yknow. An eating disorder. Dissociation. Self harm. I’m not being hyperbolic. this is literally how it starts. This is the second time this week I’ve seen a story like this (the first being the boyfriend destroying his girlfriend’s AC island over an argument) and it makes me think – how is this ANY different to someone destroying a physical piece of art someone’s made: ripping up their sketchbook, breaking ceramics, cutting up cosplays? If this person had come forward with a question like “my son wouldn’t get out of bed so I broke the birdbox he made” there wouldn’t be ANY question whether this was abusive behaviour. There’s an inherent disconnect with how we talk about the “value” of virtual items/creations in video games: something about the way that these things aren’t tangible in the conventional sense makes them somehow less valuable than something everyone can hold and observe and appreciate. Think about the amount of “funny gamer rage” videos out there that are people upset over losing WoW saves and the likes: game saves are often things people have put hundreds of hours into, they have value to that person and are representative of their own dedication. Hell, I’m really bummed at the moment over not having access to some of my BL2 saves (I can’t travel to get my PS4 from uni), and I know I’d be upset if I lost them forever.  Video games are a massive escape mechanism for a lot of people especially right now, and putting time and effort into particularly building games is a constructive and creative outlet that gives people a feeling of accomplishment (and let’s be real it’s a lot more practical than having a house full of lego). Yet there’s still this weird stigma attached to them, this “it’s just a game” mentality that leads people to be easily dismissive of others’ feelings over losing progress. Destroyed your girlfriend’s AC island, which she put hundreds of hours into building? Whatever, it’s just a game. Deleted your kid’s minecraft file, which he spent an entire year working on? Whatever, it’s just a game, why are you so mad? It’s not a real thing, it’s just some numbers hiding behind fancy computer graphics! Actions like this are intentional, targeted destruction of another person’s property - property they have created themselves -  by an adult who knew what they were doing and we should NOT treat them as anything other than that, regardless of medium. : clockworkrobotic: bigancestorenergy: ouma-anti: whatjordylikes: danielle-mertina: blackqueerblog: Some parents really don’t understand the difference between actual discipline and hurting your kids.

8-Year-Old Underwent 13 Surgeries All at the Expense of His Mother’s Alleged Mental Illness-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ An 8-year-old Dallas boy has had 13 surgeries and appeared at 323 hospital visits, all due to his mother lying about him being ill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 34-year-old Kaylene Bowen took her son, Christopher, to another hospital visit last month, but this time, medical professionals noticed that something wasn’t right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Christopher, who uses a wheelchair, was examined by doctors who determined that nothing was wrong with the boy. The staff at the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas contacted Child Protective Services, which resulted in Bowen’s arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “She was always saying Christopher was sick. Every single week. Every single month. She would always say, "Something’s wrong. He has this. He has that,” the father, Ryan Crawford, told the Star-Telegram of Bowen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Despite the boy’s perfect health, he has been on a lung transplant list, connected to oxygen tanks and even had a feeding tube inserted in him. Bowen also alleged via a GoFundMe account that Christopher had cancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Crawford tried to get custody of his son but his attempt fell on deaf ears after Bowen accused him of not wanting to face the “reality” about their son’s health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Dr. Marc Feldman reportedly told WFAA that Bowen’s behavior is consistent with the mental disorder Munchhausen syndrome by proxy. The disease is characterized as a caregiver who makes up “an illness or injury in a person under his or her care, such as a child, an elderly adult, or a person who has a disability.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The cause of this is reportedly tied to low self-esteem, stress, anxiety or a cry for attention. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “These mothers tend to be master deceivers and liars,” Feldman said. “They’re very skilled at what they do.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Bowen is being held on a $150,000 bond after being charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury.: 8-Year-Old Underwent 13 Surgeries All at the Expense of His Mother's Alleged Mental lness @balleralert 8-Year-Old Underwent 13 Surgeries All at the Expense of His Mother’s Alleged Mental Illness-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ An 8-year-old Dallas boy has had 13 surgeries and appeared at 323 hospital visits, all due to his mother lying about him being ill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 34-year-old Kaylene Bowen took her son, Christopher, to another hospital visit last month, but this time, medical professionals noticed that something wasn’t right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Christopher, who uses a wheelchair, was examined by doctors who determined that nothing was wrong with the boy.
