Mom Auctions Xbox 360 After Teenager Rebellion

Remember the father who sold his pot-smoking son's Guitar Hero III game on eBay as punishment? The father netted $9K in that auction. The mom here won't get that much, but at least she's teaching her kid a lesson.

A 13-year-old kid in Virginia has backtalked to his mom for the last time. When he was told to do his chores instead of play Xbox 360, he went and intentionally broke the vacuum cleaner to get out of it. What'd his mom do? Well, she's selling his Xbox and all his games on eBay. And that was before she found out he was surfing porn sites by checking out his browser's cookies.

Porn on a teenage boy's PC?  No!  Let's hope she gets enough for a new vacuum.  eBay needs a new category: Good Parenting.

lol That's amusing. Good for her. That's a lot better than last weeks report of the dad smashing his kid's xbox for cheating. At least there's some income involved.

Good.  Teach the little punk a lesson.

Porn, well, that's not surprising.  I hope she wasn't amazed by that.

Though I can't help but wonder if its a gimmick to increase the sales price, and she's lying.  But who knows.

I didn't even hear of the GH III happening, how did he get that much?!

Good parenting from the mom. It seems these days there are too many parents that discipline by saying "c'mon honey thats not nice". What? This isn't helping the kids figure out right and wrong? Well maybe they should face consequences of their actions such as this young man

Now that the kid has no Xbox 360 to play with, he may spend more time looking at porn, and playing with something else.Embarrassed

While he deserved to be punished, I wonder if selling his Xbox will achieve the desired results? The mom should have temporarily taken away his Xbox and paid him to work around the house until he earned enough money to buy a new vacuum instead.

Getting enough money to buy a vacuum cleaner?  An Xbox 360 + multiple games will be over $300, which will buy a quality vacuum cleaner.Smile

Since the kid refusing to do chores in the first place caused this, forcing him to do more does make sense.  But why pay him, because after having his Xbox 360 sold I'm sure he'll be more willing to work, if out of fear.Cool

 I read somewhere the Dyson offered to send the Mom a $500 vacuum to replace the one the kid broke. Combine that with getting a fair price for the 360 on ebay and its a win win for the Mom..     Surprise
