How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

Hoping to keep this topic light-hearted.

Visiting family suggested "let's watch Pacific Rim: Uprising". Arguably one of the worst movies I've ever had to suffer through. The real killer is that while the movie blasts away, 3 out of 5 are gaming on their phones more than watching! What we do for family sometimes goes above and beyond, no? I think I'll leave it at that and hope for some funny ancdedotes from y'all while I get another Scotch to make this more tolerable.

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

When my younger grandson is here after school every day, I get off my computer so he can play some of my great old "shooter" games. However, we DO restrict him to gaming only when he has NO homework and hasn't gotten bad grades in the current six-week period.

The suffering is that I don't get to play them when he's on the machine.

You need some co-op! There are plenty of good co-op shooter games. How old is he?

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

He's 12 but the co-op shooters I have require a second machine and at the moment, that won't work.

And let's not forget that we were asked to "keep it light." I could go VERY heavy for this topic but that wasn't the apparent point.

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

When my girls were growing up, I suffered through many a TV show and movie for their pleasure. Almost as bad as riding through it's a small world at Disneyland (and/or) Disney World a number of times (and I mean more than 10).

That beats having to sit through a movie where those who wanted it are not looking up from their stupid phones! If you're saying you went on that ride 10x, there must be a special place in Heaven waiting for you. Thank God I had all boys!

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

OK, watching "Barney" with my 1st grandson, or watching "Teen Titans" with my 2nd grandson. All I can say is OMG - and I'm not religious so you KNOW it was bad.

I think it was named Teletubbies, but yeah. Some Barney, some Power Rangers and other odd ones. There were some that were much more tolerable - even a bit enjoyable (Sesame Street).

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

When my son was a toddler I had to suffer Wallace & Gromit and the Curse of the Were Rabbit on repeat...

After a week I knew it word for word.... Hell....

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

Now I get to watch shows with my grandson. Mostly into Paw Patrol now. Was into Puppy Dog Pals and a few Micky Mouse shows. Was watching the Cars movie each week (only have him on the weekend), but I think he finally got his fill of the movie. We have a lot of old and new kid's movies. Some of them are pretty good.

Re: How Did You Suffer For Family? (Keep it light)

I can't tell you how many animated features we have on the shelves for the "rotten kids." Some of them are fun, some are in the OMG category. But lately the 12-year-old has taken an interest in some of my sci-fi & action DVDs. Most recently RoboCop and RoboCop II (the Peter Weller versions). There IS some maturation after all.

A bit heavy for a 12 year old....
