Hey guys, I'm feeling down these days... My mother told me that I'm wasting my time on the internet, specially on mylot. She told me that I won't get any benefit from mylot. No matter what kind of explanation I gave doesn't matter to her. She's giving me a deaf ear on it.. What should I do?.. I just wanna explode for a moment..

I think that what she's saying may be true IF you are spending all of your waking hours on the Internet. She may be just telling you that there's a life outside of the Internet. It's important to live a balanced life. Real life should always take priority over the Internet anytime. If you understand this and practice a balanced life then I commend you. If your mom is just saying this to simply belittle what you are doing then that is wrong and it's her problem. Don't worry about it and just keep doing what you are doing. Also, you don't necessarily have to be so open toward her about how you spend your time . We all need to keep certain things to ourselves. Oh..........don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying to lie to your parents. When asked a direct question from your mom and dad you should always answer honestly. What I'm simply saying is, if what you are doing doesn't hurt you or anybody else there is no need to VOLUNTEER the information. It is alright to keep some things to yourself. Another words, we all need privacy. I hope you don't misconstrue what I'm saying here! LOL! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija (my furangel)

Two hours isn't all that bad. It's not as if you're spending your whole day on myLot. Do you spend anymore time on the computer other than myLot? Take care. Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

she sounds similar to my mother, all mothers are like they, they say it for your best. just tell you mum i will set a limit like 1-2 hours everyday and comprimise with her, tell her ill do the dishes and hovers and let me go on the computer for certain hours, with my mum i told her ill do some maths and science revision everyday for 1 hours if she lets me go on the computer for 30 minutes and then she'll be happy as well, Happy mylotting mate!!

Hello AltheGreat your mother is a typical mother. That is usually mother said when they see their kids always infront of the computer. Maybe because they think kids really wasting the time in the internet doing nothing but just playing online games and chatting to people they don't know. And for mother there's a lot of things to do rather than doing internet surfing. We can't blame them they are just very concern of their children. Just show her that although you do your internet activity you are still productive in your offline life. Goodluck...

Yeah, I've actually proven that. I was a Dean's Lister thrice and I maintain good grades. I'm a member of various groups and organizations in our school. I once ran for president of our school's student council (only I lost by 32 votes). I was a member of the school's most outstanding students. And I was always an officer in most of the groups and organizations that I'm with.

I can understan what your mom said. It is because that your mom, as well as my mom, doesn't believe that money can come from t he internet. They just believe in real job that can earn you real money. Belive me, the real job really gives you more money than spending your time here in front of your computer. But afterall, this is good because not only gou got extra earning, you can also broaden your knowledge about world around you... tell that to the moms good luck and have a nice day

Yeah, I do believe that too. But it isn't really really about earning money for. It's socializing and interacting with people. By doing that, then you'll get you knowledge broaden... Yeah good luck to me...

I know real jobs are better than online jobs. I've already applied for a job and I'm on the waiting list. what I do on mylot is socialize and interact with other people, that's all. I don't even spend a lot of time on mylot. Around 2 hours a day I guess..

I do not agree with your mother, unless you spend all your time on myLot. I think this is a good part-time thing to do, plus it earns you for that, and hence not a waste. But if you intent to stay at myLot throughout a day, i dont know how worth that is. My suggestion will be that its a good part-time stuff to do. So that it doesn't hurt you even if that times goes wasted.
