Does she explain to you why she is against the idea?

It is likely that she is either concerned about the expense or worried about your spending too much time on the cpu.

Perhaps you could explain to her that you will save the money for any webkinz you would like and you will set a time limit every day with her for play time so that you're not spending too much time on the cpu?

Sorry, wish I had better advice, good luck!

Try explaining to her that it teaches you how to be responsible because you have to take care of your Webkinz. It is also educational, there is trivia to help you learn. Good Luck!!

Beg.
Beg, beg, beg until she says "OK FINE I'll BUY YOU ONE SHEESH!"
That always works!

Default Re: I Want A Webkinz!

save up your money untill you can buy one. then make up a schedule for each day you go on, and how long you will play. for example
monday 4-5 pm.
tuesday 3:30-4:00
. . .
this will show her that you can be responsible.
tell her about all the great things about webkinz and how it's educational and all it teaches. Say that you will only go on after you have done all your chores.
hope you get one

Default Re: I Want A Webkinz!

I would do what the others have suggested - show that you can be responsible and map out your time. If you show that you can balance things out by caring for your other pets, then perhaps she will be more open to it. Another thing to try is to see if she will let you try the trial of webkinz, if that is still available. (I'm not too sure to be honest - but it allowed you to access webkinz world for a day, I believe - that way you could go through it with her and show her the avenues for learning - Quizzy's world, the job office, etc.) Do you have any friends who have webkinz? Maybe you could ask them if you could have your mom see their account and she might be more comfortable with it if you were able to walk through it with her.

Keep showing your responsibility - Moms take note of these things

Some of the games are educational too--Booger Gets an A helps you learn math; Quizzy's Word Challenge helps you with learning words and spellings. It's a good mental exercise.

Webkinz World emphasizes eating healthy foods and exercising. And caring for others.

Whining and begging are not likely to get you ahead with your mom, it doesn't sound like. Showing responsibility and working out a contract with your mom on how much you will use the computer sounds more likely to be successful. Good luck!
