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?

It was only free for the first few months it came out. It's $5.00 now.

Honestly, if he doesn't trust Nintendo, I dunno who he CAN trust.

Maybe he's not old enough to buy Wii points =O

Seriously if you have the money go to a store buy them yourself and buy the game.

We can not control your father. Given hes your father, he has higher authority and has every right to tell you you can not have wii-points

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.

thats not even funny.....

Also, I think you dad has better things to spend money, like food for the family, gas for the car, etc, intead of wasting it on silly video game points.

If you have an allowance, use that for the wii points, or do work around the house (ie; dishes, clean room, mow the lawn etc) your parrents may just give you some money. If your older then 16, then get a job.

...maybe you just caught dad at a bad time. It seems you have that communications going..so don't lose it. Maybe you can catch him during a more relaxed time and explain to him why you would like the points. Then ask him if he would hear you out to explain all about it and then have him make his decision. Sometimes it's important to let them know you respect their decision but you just want to make sure they know your feelings and thinking process.

Saying I don't have respect for my parents? Funny.

You should get your dad to buy you a points card?

He doesn't have to get his credit card out, and he doesn't have to do anything over the internet.

He can go into a game shop, pick it up, and pay cash. And give you something physical. Lots more confidence and trust in the product then.

I can't I can only get my money if I ask my parents I don't have money to hand I would have got peresants for there birthdays if I could surprise them!

Me: mum/dad can I have some of my spends?

Mum/Dad: what is it for?

Me: to buy you a surprise birthday present that isn't a surprise anymore!

We can not control your father. Given hes your father, he has higher authority and has every right to tell you you can not have wii-points

I know it is just weird that I have done stuff like this before with his permission and now he is saying completely opposite to what he has said before

If I were you I'd ask for weekly money or something. Justify it as teaching you money management.

I don't have a PayPal T.T are 14 year olds allowed PayPal accounts and I can get any money without my parents asking what I want it for!

Why don't you just apply for a debit card?

Pay for it yourself?

Or has that been discussed.

Those were popular when I was 10. (and that was over 9 years ago)
