How come I have the best parents ever???
« on: September 28, 2011, 09:05:01 pm »
Most parents I have heard talked about on this forum are really against programming.
Poor buttsfredkin found that omnimaga.org was blocked by his parents one day.
Sometimes calc use is discouraged or even constrained.

My parents want me to have the best programming experience I can and to follow my passion. They recently agreed to fork over half the cost of a calculator just in case it would make it better for what I love to do. My parents let me compose and play music all the time, and don't make me. They are very supportive of non-conventionality.

Is this strange?
I'm not worried about SOPA creating censorship, that will not stand for long. I'm worried that they'll succeed in stopping piracy!

not really, my parents just don't really care what I do,. as long as it doesn't have a negative effect on my studies.

Not really.  As long as I have all A's they encourage me to do programming stuff.  I just don't ever explain my projects to them -- when I explained a project for Ruby I was doing to contribute a low-level parallel type array add-on to the language, my dad flipped out and is now forcing me to do it so that "I look good to colleges".  Just do well and try to take programming very seriously (i.e., I try to program 3 hours a day if humanly possible) and prove you're learning things, and you'll be left alone.

I think my mom only finds my activities weird, no constrainments whatsoever. She even went as far as meeting Omnimaga members IRL with me :P

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I only had constraints because my parents thought I was spending too much time on programming and not enough on school ( which admittedly I was not managing my time then constructively ). My last year of High School though till now I've had no real constraints other then having to go help with other stuff/go to school. In fact my parents know that I want to program for a living so they are being very supportive of me learning ( while at the same time trying to help me balance my time with other important matters in life that I shouldn't ignore ).

My parents always make me do my school work first, and then allow me to program. Also, they want me to not waste my time doing little projects - they want me to make something no one else has ever done before, something that will make people reading my college application really go "wow". I totally agree with them on this, and I've been thinking of what I could make, but I don't have any ideas :(

My parents made me do violin until last year, allowing me to quit because this year I'm getting a lot more homework.

My mom doesn't like me to constantly be on my calc, but she doesn't have too big a problem with it.

Like in 7th grade, they didn't let me date anyone...

My parents buy me anything that will help with my programming career, such as VS Pro, Dreamweaver CS5.5, and soon Photoshop O.o and they know that no matter what I do, I seem to always get by with at LEAST a B+, soo...

I also got a car for my birthday last year ;D

I almost always try to pay for things myself, but they almost always never let me.

I know right?
I say I need something that's over 100$, and my parents say I will buy it for you but you will have to pay back. Then, when I try to pay back, they say no...
I don't get parents
