  1. what a wonderful bonding experience, 30 years difference and you still sitting on your arse playing a computer game instead of being outside playing with your son or sitting on the lounge reading him a story or some other healthy bonding experience

    This shows parenting hasnt advanced in 30 years, guess the one positive about it is at least its not a VIOLENT game and as such wont traumatise the child too much but i guess give it time and he will be playing them eventually

  3. Wow Jeannine.. Perhaps it was a rainy day the day both pictures were taken? Get over yourself already! Your judgmental self is not wanted here!

  7. Jeannine, you must have some daddy issues. I guess people can’t spend a few minutes doing something with a video game. Is the kid supposed to be outside all day? How do you know based on this photo they weren’t just outside? Judgemental much?

  9. I agree with Tim.. I going to guess that the only thing Jeannine’s daddy played with was her no no zone…

  11. Too bad the games didn’t teach him the proper use of pronouns.
    Dad and ME… son and ME. (Not “I”).

  13. Man, there are some truly evil people on this Earth. I think it’s a fun and creative picture that shows a beautiful bonding moment.

    And to Jeannine, go back from the rock you crawled out from!

  15. Jeannine is right. A generation of gamers do not make healthy parents. This photo is reflective of what he was taught as a child. Studies have been showing that limited TV time per day is better for the development of a child due to reading, stimulation of the imagination and interaction with parents.
    These are the core necessities that are NOT being met as kids are likely to have electronic overstimulation and fail to nurture the parts of the brain that are needed for proper mental, emotional and social growth and development.
    So, turn it off, get your kids some books and take time to interact with them. It will make a world of difference.

  17. THANK YOU pct2k, we have a generation of violent and illiterate children and wonder why?

    Most of those skills are learnt AT HOME

    So instead of sitting on your arse playing a computer game while your young child sits and watches you isnt really stimulating HIS mind is it? if ‘daddy’ wants to play the game do it when the son is in bed

    IF it was raining outside or any of the other ‘excuses’ some of you listed then some real family bonding time wouldnt have gone astray but that would require ‘daddy’ actually do something, perhaps ‘daddy’ cant read after having spent his youth sitting on his arse watching his ‘daddy’ play computer games

    And if it makes you feel better about yourself to attack my ‘father’ go for it…how do you know my father didnt DIE when i was a child and that your comments havent upset me? maybe i would have given anything to have sat on my arse watching my father play computer games?

    If your going to post this photo expect people to COMMENT whether you like it or not, sometimes the TRUTH HURTS

  19. Wow, the know-it-all self-righteous aholes are really at it on this one. They probably believe bombing Syria is a good idea, too.
