Wait till his favorite hour long show on TV is on, and at the 30 minute mark walk over and turn it off. "30 minutes of TV is enough for anyone". Maybe he'll get the point.
So I'm 16 years old and not so recently my parents bought Circle by Disney, a block that has direct access to your router and works as a filtering network just as facilitated diffusion works allowing some things through and filtering others. They got it because I have 2 younger brothers and they wanted to limit their internet access but at the same time limit mine too. I didn't really think much of it because to me, it really didnt matter because I was used to my parents turning off the wifi at 10pm every night because they did the same with our old netgear router. But recently, I've saved up months of working a job to build my own gaming pc which i feel quite proud of but my parents dont see the same. After building the pc, Ive seen more and more restrictions such as limiting online gaming to 30 minutes a day making me unable to even play a quick game of csgo, limiting youtube to 30 minutes, and a bunch of other restrictions. Ive read all the forums on how to bypass them by changing you mac address and etc but after doing that, my dad found a bypass to block any unknown mac addresses from accessing the internet so that's a no-go and I bought my own wifi card and tried switching from wifi and ethernet and that doesnt work either. I talked to my parents on multiple accounts on trying to let me at least get more time or just giving me more time on the wifi until 11 or 12 because to complete all my homework by 10 pm is starting to be a problem and they still wont listen thinking that i spend all my time on the internet talking to my friends and screwing around. They see facebook and snapchat as "screwing around" when i use those apps for communication with my classmates about homework and group projects. This problem has been going on for a while and i see no bypass for it other than somehow getting into my dad's phone to change my wifi time limits but even if i did, he would just change them back and give me less time as a punishment. please help
