My mom refuses to get a webkinz--she doesn't want one. How do I convince her they're fun, and what do I tell her? *UPDATE!*
 
Today I asked my mom if she wanted to go to Walgreens and get a webkinz.
She said no, because she doesn't want one !:(
She won't even try it--if I could get her on for 5 minutes she'd be hooked, I know my mom.

What do I tell her to get her to try them?


UPDATE: Well, today my mother tried it, because I promised I'd watch a movie with her. Suprisingly, when I asked her what I should name my cow, she gave me a straight answer and watched me adopt it! "Five minutes on Quizzy's Word Challenge" turned into an hour, and she got up to level seven and only quit because she had to start dinner, LOL. I'm going to show her more of the site on Saturday, which is her day off. Even if she decides not to adopt a webbie, I have a pretty good feeling she'll be on my account playing that game a LOT...LOL.

Even my dad said he might try it if my mom decides she likes it--which is a HUGE accomplishment, because my dad wakes up at 5, has work, comes home at four, relaxes for about an hour (which is the only time I spend with him), cuts our neighbor's grass/does side jobs until about 8:30, then relaxes until about 10 (but he's usually too tired for a game or something), and the day starts over again.....

I hope they both decide they like it---now THAT would be something.=]

Thanks Princess18 for the awesome idea!! :)

Remember you cant get someone to do something that they dont want to do easily. For me my dad likes webkinz so I let him use my account (he is obsessed with Goobers Lab). My mom doesn't like webkinz at all though! So why dont you let her try your account and if she likes it she can get her own!

Get her one for her birthday or christmas, or whatever is sooner! She can't not accept a present from you, so she'll sign up and then she'll be hooked! Or you can have her help design a new room for you, then if she thinks its fun, she'll get one! Thats how my friend got her mom hooked! Have her play around on your account and she'll realize its fun! Or maybe she is unconvinceable, and/or doesn't think its her thing. =( But just try!!!!!! =)))))

My dad doesn't even know how to work a mouse--LOL--so I'm the one who's always checking his e-mail.

Why do you want her to get hooked on webkinz?

Re: Mhy mom refuses to get a webkinz--she doesn't want one. How do I convince her they're fun, and what do I tell her?
 
Because we never spend time together, and I want to prove that they're not a waste of time & money.

well you can't force some one to do something when they don't want to do it.............so yeah

I know you can't, Labrador...I just want her to TRY it. That's all I ask, and if she doesn't like it I won't bug her anymore. You never know 'til you try.

well not all people like what you like...it's normal and perfectly OK for parents, or any adult not to like webkinz.

Ask her to come play on your account with you. I think you should be like ''hey mom, want to see my new room?'' then when she comes over ask her if she wants to play a game[on webkinz] or something
