Japanese Teen Stabs Mother For Confiscating Video Game

I’m sure everyone have experienced our video games being confiscated by our moms. And most of the time, all we could do is just whine about it and sulk for the reminder of the day.

However, this angry 14 year old teen in Aichi Prefecture took things a little too far when he stabbed his mother after she confiscated one of his video games.

According to police, an emergency call was received at around 5:40 p.m. Sunday from a woman who told the operator that her son had stabbed her, TBS reported. Paramedics rushed to the scene and found the woman had been stabbed in the back with a kitchen knife.

Following his arrest, the junior high school student was quoted by police as saying that he lost his temper because his mother took away a video game he had bought without telling her, TBS reported.

Doctors said the woman’s left lung was punctured in the attack, but that her injuries are not life-threatening.

I’m actually quite interested to know what was the title of the video game. Wonder what could make him go crazy like that? I’m quite at a loss for words but I sure hope none of you would emulate his wrong actions.

I still recall when I was young my mom used to confiscate the power cable to my PC so that I couldn’t play games after school. In the end, I managed to figure out that the power cables from other electric appliances could work as well ^^

    First world problems, I guess. For a child to get that mad from his parents for disciplining him means that their relationship with each other isn’t really in a good shape or the parent spoils the child too much. Giving your child freedom and independence is a must HOWEVER you should know the difference between those two and just plain letting your child do what he/she wants.

    - LOL, that sounds like you took a power cable from other appliances in the house to power your PC afterwards :P

    My mom has done stuff like that before too when I was a kid, i.e. taking away my gameboy so I study instead of play games during the weekends. In the end, I found the gameboy in her room (and took it back without her noticing).

    I think the kids need to be taught that violence is not a good thing to solve a problem no matter the situation. I often get mad when I was a kid too, but the most I would do to retaliate is pull silly pranks to annoy the person back.
