Lol, I'm 21 and my parents (mostly my mom) still wants me to get their approval before I buy anything above $100. However, I believe its ridiculous that I have to ask my parents what I can and cannot buy at this age. So I usually just go behind their back and tell them whenever they ask.

This situation might be weird, but it seems pretty normal in a Chinese family. The parents always seem to know what their kids buy, regardless of age, unless they are making quite a lot of money.

Chinese parents are nothing, did you hear what the Japanese government did to HomeFront?

Anyway, you're a Teenager - parents are almost always wrong :P Surprisingly, my dad is an engineer, and he loves Pentium 4's - therefore his opinion on my rigs are invalid... ^_^
