s0LA1917dfor me personally, i would rather build a 'virus' which would teach him a little bit about tech.
force him on a site, such as codecademy, he has to do 5 lessons daily, then he'd be free to go.
Or make him learn stuff, give him challenges - school related - and when he successfully finishes them, he's free to go, as well!
Therefore, it is a fun-feature, you learn something and he learns something... Therefore it is a lot of profit for both of you!
As much as i like the idea, or appreciate the fact, that you both care; i also hate it, because i like the fact of pure freedom in even a young age. Afterall it is HIS life.

@s0LA I usually would agree, I too love the idea of as much freedom as possible at a young age, however, without getting into too much details, he really deserved it. My brother was/is a completely different case. He got himself kicked out of school because of things he saw online and found funny. Not a single thing, many things. Also we never completely restricted him, we just told him that it will probably work if he'd do his homework. Eventually I told him that actually it was my work, and he did not complain, he even said that probably he deserved it, which was VERY mature and totally unexpected for me. Anyways, the situation has become better since.
kenogo94556dWhy is everyone putting “virus” in quotes? Well, it isn’t a virus at all because it doesn’t spread, but I’m sure you mean that it’s malware. And it absolutely is, so that doesn’t need quotes.
