Sadness: Video Of Mother Hand-Feeding 13-Year Old Son At Internet Cafe As He Games For Days Straight

February 27, 2019


This is a video of 37-year old mother Lilybeth Marvel going to hand-feed her son Carlito breakfast at an internet cafe in Nueva Ecija, the Philippines, as he plays his favorite battle royale style video game, Rules Of Survival, which, at this point, he's been playing for over 48 hours straight. Some more info while I wonder why his mother didn't teach him the REAL first rule of survival: if you don't stop playing video games long enough to eat, you're going to starve to death:

After the footage went viral, the mother took to the internet to explain that she and her husband had tried a rough approach at first, by banning Carlito from going to the internet cafe. That didn't work out as well as they had hoped, as the 13-year-old always found ways to sneak out, so now they're trying to do things differently.

"I used to just nag about his online games. But that didn't work. So I'm trying a different approach," the woman said. "I try to make him feel that whatever is happening in his life, I am his mother who loves him and takes care of him."

The two desperate parents have pulled Carlito out of school, because he had started skipping classes to play video games. They are trying to focus on managing his addiction, but admit that it is very difficult and have pleaded online for help.

Well that was a whole family-sized microwavable dinner of depressing. So what is the answer here? Like, what will actually work? I know you're used to me having all the answers on account of my keen intellect and devilish good looks, but I'm actually at a loss here. "Call Ralph, demand he breaks the internet again." *mind is blown, reforms like a star being born, is blown again* My God you're good.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Joseph A, who agrees breaking free from any addiction is a battle.

    This is sick!

    maybe this "helping" is actually a stealth punishment, trying to humiliate him into being less of a slug

  • lushkneebumbuild

    what game?

  • lushkneebumbuild

    i don't see the problem. nobody complains when some inner city parent pushes their kid into football or basketball in america.
    gotta train up for when korea gets their turn to pick an olympic sport and chooses computer gaming. this is literally her son's only chance to succeed at life in any form
    (i know they're not korean, but how else can you possibly catch up?)

  • GeneralDisorder

    This dude is not nearly embarrassed enough by this. If my mom tried to hand feed me when I was that age I would have gotten my ass kicked. By my mom first then by everyone else who found out about it.

  • Mysterio Don Lefluerflin

    WTF game is he playing. Also, lets be real, that family would be better off without that kid.

  • Bling Nye

    If he's gold farming, he might be a source of income for the family. I don't know if that's the case here, but just sayin'.

  • Kaizer Chief

    LOL at them and their "rough approach". This is the generation of parents who are taught not to even say the word "no" to their children, cos it will damage them somehow.

  • jimmycleaver

    I guess the old-fashioned belt isn't acceptable anymore to this new generation of parents. I might of been obsessed with video games at a young age and always dream of spending my life-time on playing nothing but games, but I can now see why there are restrictions for playing games for a limited-time, and these parents aren't being stern enough to their child.

  • Bling Nye

    Being a stern parent has fuckall to do with using a belt to hit a child. Hitting a child is just lazy, terrible parenting. Clear boundaries with consistent enforcement of reasonable penalties is far more effective parenting than hitting a kid.

  • MoonshineGFT

    Sure, try enforcing "reasonable" penalties to a generation of children who'll just refuse to abide, because "What are you going to do if I don't?"

    Delinquent children always find a way around you, and they know full well they've got nothing to fear, because one call to child services will put a swift end to your threats.

    The point is, fear = respect, and kids often get this way because they do not respect their parents, because they never feared them.

    Smacking your kids around whenever they disobey is just plain abuse, but having the belt as an ultimatum is responsible parenting.

  • sizzlepants

    Good god. Learn from you child and become the master manipulator.

    Do you want to play video games? Do your homework.

    Do you want to play more video games? Do a chore.
    Do you want to spend money to play video games in an internet cafe for days at a time? Learn to suck dick.

  • Douchy McDouche

    Philippines. That's the country where the president praises Hitler and has a death squad for eliminating anyone involved with drugs in any way. Something tells me he'll eventually see this video and we'll be reading news about gamers being lined up and shot in the streets.

    Drop an EMP just outside the Internet Cafe doorway...

  • Eric Ord

    If the bot keeps posting like this, I may have to give up my crown as the shitpost king!

  • bakuryu

    Has GW taught you nothing? Never give up. Never to bots, atleast.

  • James Mcelroy

    uneasy lies the head that wears the crown

  • Sashman1234 .

    Can't be that difficult to take all Money or game consoles away. But this is wrong. And might be dangerous. You Need to Sleep, Right?

  • Wooder

    They even let the kid drop out of school! WTF
    Parents have to help the child prioritize what is important to becoming an adult.
    Otherwise this child is lost and a burden on everyone.

  • This kid needs a swift kick in the ass.
    That being said, his mom's name is Lilybeth Marvel?
    Get her into the MCU stat!
