    Default what must children say whenever their parents ask them to stop watching anime?

    well, my mom tend to nag at me whenever she sees me watching anime. she would always tell me that there's nothing i can get from it... and i find no reason to give her why i shouldn't stop watching...

    i always try telling her that i get lots of lessons from what i watch, but she would always answer me with this undying question: "is there an anime that can teach you how to be obedient?"

    You don't watch anime because it teaches you lessons. You watch anime because it is entertaining. Your mom is an idiot (no offense) if she can't understand that. And is also a total b*t(h (again, no offense) if she wouldn't want you watching anime just because you like it. I'm not sure exactly what you would say, but I would argue that there's something she likes that she doesn't necessarily get out of, but that she watches/does because she enjoys it, and then call her a hypocrite. However, I'm sure if you did that she would yell at you because you were being rude or disrespectful of her, even though you were just trying to defend your choices.

    Just ask her what her name is?... When she tells you her name be like "Hmmm.. Thats not -insert your name here-.. You have your interest I have mine obviously. What are you going to do when I move out?? Call me up every time you remotely think I'm watching anime?" and if it "keeps you off the streets" you can add that comment in as well. Because that's why my mom doesn't mind that I watch it.

    Typical way of thinking for Filipino moms, no offense of course knowing that I myself have a Fil. mom too. Though I'm guessing your mom watches telenovelas right? Just tell her, "Hey, I don't mind it when you watch your -inserts a Filipino telenovela-, and do you learn anything from it?" Yes, I know she'd say you're being disrespectful just like what @YokoKuwabara: said but you are just defending yourself and your opinion. If she really cares about you she'd understand, I mean she was young like you before so she must've experienced the same critics from her mom too.

    What I've learned from anime is an outstretched hand from a falling male protagonist will always come in contact with the bosom of a female. Always.

    But seriously, who watches anime to learn? Like said, it's for entertainment purposes only. As long as you are watching in moderation (And not spending hours everyday) I don't see what the deal is.

    "Really, Mom? Didn't you ever have something that you were interested in as a kid that your mom told you to stop doing? How did you feel about that? Didn't you just wish you could make her understand that it wasn't stupid or inappropriate; you did it because you enjoyed it."

    "And, tell me honestly, have you ever even watched a series of good anime? I'm sure that if you did, you'd find that there are plenty of things to learn and gain from it. Real-life situations that conflict with what it can mean to be human, heart-wrenching moments that have us questioning what is really right or wrong, etc. So please, before you presume that anime is just something for children, give it its fair shot."

    And if that isn't enough, have your mother check out a copy of Mechademia; a series of critical essays with countless anime and manga references dealing with some of the most critical and intellectually mind boggling questions of our time. Unless she's going into flat out denial, she can't look at this and say that anime doesn't teach you anything.

    You say, "Thank you mother, for worrying about my future and trying to promote the idea of pursuing things that are known to lead to success in adult-life. I am truly lucky that I have parents who care about my well-being, a luxury that many children around the world do not have."

    and then right after that, you have to explain your philosophy about non-contributive hobbies and the place they have in everyone's lives, and you have to reason it out well enough that she sees where you're coming from and begrudgingly accepts it. Hint: You're obviously never going to make someone agree with you if you have an indignant attitude and/or insult them.

    If your parents are getting tired of it, tell them its better than being out on the streets trying to "find something to do". Most parents won't mind that. But if they're nagging because you haven't done your chores first, well, that's another story.

    i always try telling her that i get lots of lessons from what i watch, but she would always answer me with this undying question: "is there an anime that can teach you how to be obedient?"
    whoa.... hold on now..

    There may be some sort of cultural barrier here I'm not aware of, but when I hear "obedient" i think of "pet dog"; soooo not cool. It's important to take your parents advice into consideration and always think through a decision, but you don't exist as some sort of projection of their will.. >_>

    You're almost an adult (should your profile age be correct that is), and when you are, you have to make sure your parents are aware that , 1. yes, they are looking out for your best interest, and it is very much appreciated, but that 2. they need to know when to back off when in fact you don't choose to use that advice.

    Besides, watching anime is a hobbie. the whole point is to relax and unwind. Humans aren't built to operate 24/7 @__@ they need breaks and down time too..

    Is your mom just nagging you about watching anime or is she actually physically stopping you from watching it? There is a difference.

    If she is just nagging you, as you say, then just ignore it. After all, moms nag all the time about lots of things (moms do this sometimes). Sorry, but there is not a darn thing that you are going to "learn" from watching anime that you can't learn somewhere else (and in a much more productive fashion), so your mom has you on that one. The only thing anime can provide is some stimulating entertainment, but once again, we are faced with the fact that entertainment can be found in many other ways besides Japanese cartoons. The only defense you have is that you like it.

    But like I said, if she is just nagging you about watching anime, then just take it at face value and ignore her. Do you really want to start some type of argument with your mother because she gets in your face about cartoons? I certainly hope that the answer is no. And besides, you're 17; depending on what the age of majority is where you live, she doesn't have much more time to boss you around anyway.
    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    Parents usually aren't always approving of their kids (what they consider) "newfangled" devices and or shows. Just tell her you enjoy watching it, and that it doesn't distract you from or disrupt your school work/job/whatever.

    Also, obedience isn't learned from shows, i'm sure she knows this.

    I didn't even know parents would ask their kids to stop watching anime unless the viewer was young and the anime they were watching went to some sort of extreme in which their was major violence or some form of suggestive themes built into the episode/movie/manga. I've been watching anime for longer than a decade now and my parents and family never had an issue with it.. If indeed they are telling you to stop watching anime then do you really think you need to listen? You don't need to do everything your parents tell you because sometimes you know what is the best for you and your parents don't ALWAYS have the answer in situations like this.

    I actually can see where she's coming from but don't make an argument out of it. Just tell her you like this kind of stuff and when you want to stop watching it (if you ever want to stop that is lol) then it is your decision not hers.

    I don't know whats your mother's issue for you watching anime. Its not like you're doing anything horrible you know. ;/ I just think she should careless about it, as long you're not doing bad things. Fine.
    You know, my interest in anime is pretty low. I can watch it but I'm no super fan of it as I used to be. And it changed my life dramatically. Now my life is just okay that I'm not a super otaku as before. I browse through anime DVDs in a attire of Hollister, wearing pink and with an expensive purse and they have no idea that I have some interest in anime. It blows people's mind. When they see me, of course. But don't let people tell you to quit what you love doing because you know its not a bad thing to do. Being a good person is all good enough.

    If she hasn't watched anime she can't just say "Does anime teach you to be obiedent?"
    People can be like that, but if you can prove it to her then there's no way she can repeat her undying answer nor can it still be her final answer!

    Thats the same with my mom, she's Filipino herself. But sometimes she can be in the category of being the stereotypical Asian mom. She leaves my interest alone, and thats the good thing. After a while she learns to do the "American" ways and be lax about it. Its the same with my dad, too, but he's Chinese. x_x Its even better because he's all "Whatever will float your boat~" kind of a person. He jumps in if theres something wrong, of course. If they know there's something bad with anime, they would tell me. But they haven't, and if there is something bad with anime I shrug off and say "Whatever, I'm not a huge fan of it as before." xD

    "And, tell me honestly, have you ever even watched a series of good anime? I'm sure that if you did, you'd find that there are plenty of things to learn and gain from it. Real-life situations that conflict with what it can mean to be human, heart-wrenching moments that have us questioning what is really right or wrong, etc. So please, before you presume that anime is just something for children, give it its fair shot."

    And if that isn't enough, have your mother check out a copy of Mechademia; a series of critical essays with countless anime and manga references dealing with some of the most critical and intellectually mind boggling questions of our time. Unless she's going into flat out denial, she can't look at this and say that anime doesn't teach you anything.
    haha, good to know someone believes that we can get lessons from anime...and oh, thanks for the advice^^
    i'll have my mom see that mechademia you're talkin' about...

    Yeah, sorry about that. I wasn't sure if I was crossing a line there, but my dad is a lot like that. He hates anime, but probably for a different reason. I usually tell him he's being an idiot when he get's on an anti-anime kick, but I can understand that I crossed a line there. Sorry about that, I won't do it again. Or atleast not to you.

    I honestly don't understand why you mom doesn't want you to watch anime. I don't see anything wrong with it, and it's not like your doing anything wrong. I never had this issue with my parents. Why don't you just say to her:

    "Mom listen to me for a sec: I'm not mad or anything, but why is me watching anime such a issue to you? It's not like i'm harming you or anybody else. I don't complain when you watch soaps/telenovelas/(whatever the hell she likes to watch). This is how i like to be entertained. I need some down time too, and i see no harm in watching anime. There are worse things on T.V. to see. I could be watching some raunchy shows like Skins on MTV.(You can find some other show as an example if you want.) Do you want me to watch something like that? Is that a better choice than anime? This is what i like, and i think you shouldn't be so negative about it. You may not like it, but i do and your just gonna have to deal with it. I could be doing worse things, but for some reason to you watching anime is a really naughty thing to do. There's nothing wrong with this."

    Hopefully that can give you an idea on what to say.

    Millions of people rot their brains with The X Factor or (insert country)'s Got Talent every year and your mom's worried about your watching anime?

    Also, these are my general thoughts on the whole thing:

    You're almost an adult (should your profile age be correct that is), and when you are, you have to make sure your parents are aware that , 1. yes, they are looking out for your best interest, and it is very much appreciated, but that 2. they need to know when to back off when in fact you don't choose to use that advice.

    Besides, watching anime is a hobbie. the whole point is to relax and unwind. Humans aren't built to operate 24/7 @__@ they need breaks and down time too..

    Well my parents don't approve of the computer in general, they think it's dangerous and everyone on it is a pedophile, that's why I have to go upstairs and use my laptop to go on chat so they don't freak, they also don't like my graphic design mostly because that's all I do on my computer but if they were to get mad at me for doing to much graphic design I would say something like this "Would you rather have me outside were I could go and cause trouble or would you rather like me being happy with graphic design and doing nothing bad?".

    Yeah, exactly. o_o My parents hated my sisters and I being on the computer, watching TV, etc. But they don't go out with friends so much either, they hoard them in at home and tell them to do chores. And after chores are done, apparently its not "clean" or done right for them. Meh. And they're not rewarded either. I remember this one time that I felt very creative, my mother barked on me and b*tched how "messy" the house was and that the place should be vacuumed. Okay... members of AF, if you see my parents place when it's "messy", I swear you'll think that its friggen clean and it looked fine. Not for my mom. No, and it has to be done her way. Even until now I still wonder sometimes why she wants it exactly like that. lol

    yada yada, So my parents complain about my sisters being on the computer after they do everything and wants them to do other things. Now that they do, their answer is no. Uhhh... =__= I'm not in a mood now to complain about their reasons for whatever. I just want things to make sense to be real honest. But they say that they don't complain back then, but too bad. xD My folks are dealing with people who doesn't think or behave like the way they do back then.
