Jack: But I’m just watching videos!
me: Take a little break and use it later or tomorrow please.
Jack: But why?
me: Because if you have that glued to your face all day you’re not giving yourself a chance to be creative and use your own imagination. It’s doing all the thinking for you and you’re not creating anything with your own brain.
Jack: But I get all my creative ideas from the videos I watch.
me: I … Uh… Sigh.
Sometimes I just run out of arguments.
