Their has been a game I have had my eye on called "Pokemon ranch" but I recently found out you can only buy it with wii points over at the wii shop I asked my dad whether I could convert my spends into wii points and he said he didn't want me playing stuff online he doesn't understand what I am talking about and I have been playing over wi-fi for ages and that doesn't seem to bother him so what the hell is he trying to get at I want to buy pokemon ranch that is 1000 wii points and the internet channel which is 500 wii points how can I convince him to let me get wii points It is out of my money after all!

Let him know what you want and how the point sale system works, and if he still says no, deal with it. If he doesn't want you playing stuff online, why is he OK with the wi-fi, or are you hiding that from him? :(

Perhaps you should explain to him how the Wii points system works. Tell him it's like buying the game with an extra, intermediary step.

Try to explain to him that it's just like an online transaction, maybe link him to the Wii Points FAQ etc. If he doesn't conform, then you'll just have to live with it.

Nah I have more complex problems but this one is bugging me because my dad just contradicted himself because I play over wi-if and he knows and has never had a problem with it

Stab him in the heart with your Wiimote.

Or a spoon. Either is good.

Mature communication is the key. Explain how it works, and that it is safe, especially with a Wii points card bought from a shop.

Start digging a grave outside your house and give him the stank eye. He'll get the message.

Show him the terms of service, etc. If there is a page titled "What are wii points" show him that.

How come you have to pay for the internet channel now I got it for free?

Tell him that the Muslim down the street has offered to buy the points for you if you convert, and spend a week in terrorist training camp.. Make it clear to him that you are seriously considering the offer.

Explain to him that it is perfectly safe and that only 1 in 10 people get raped when playing Pokeman.

That or ya you could just buy a Wii points card.
