Parents Not Supporting

Is it just mine or are nobody else's parents not supporting the idea of me playing paintball at all. i have been playing for a year and a half now and they still do not support me in it at all and they think its a waste of money. (Which it is, but its fun as hell.) And thats what they dont get.

Any ideas on how to get them to support me in this?

By supporting, are you saying that they are not paying for your paint/gear/entry?

Try something like this: "I was going to paintball this weekend, but you guys are right, it's just a waste of time. Instead, Billy and I are going to go behind the wood shed and smoke drugs."

Hey mom your right, so I'm going to sell all my gear, and buy 3 kegs, 5 ounces of pot, and some crystal meth and party it up this weekend!
Or would you rather have me play paintball?
Its your choice.

dont hate people who gets gifts, they are just spoiled. as a 22 year old, that will only be detrimental to them in the future. dont hate kids who get stuff for free, just be proud you've earned your own and in the end, your satisfaction will be much greater if you earned something

Ha, my parents never supported me, but thats half the fun. You take pride in the gear you worked hard for, and every day of paintball you know you made happen.

PLEASE STOP USING DUBSTEP IN ANY AND ALL PAINTBALL VIDEOS CAUSE REALLY ITS JUST HARD TO WATCH WITH THAT UNINTELLIGIBLE GARBAGE PLAYING.


On average NPPL and semi players can satisfy their girlfriends and wives much better than PSP and ramping players :)

My mom always supported me in what ever I did.

Honestly all through high school I played (and I guess I was addicted ) to World of Warcraft. Yes I spent all day playing video games like a loser, but my mom liked knowing that I was playing video games with my friends and wasn't out doing drugs.

On the other side, my grandparents don't like that I play at all because its "violent because you shoot at people" and its "expensive". That I should be playing something else like an instrument or a sport that is more respectable. Like I should be playing the piano/guitar/soccer/tennis/golf something that will still be useful (I suppose?) in 20 years or that could get me a college scholarship.

Lastly like people said... if your parents know you are spending your money on paintball you are staying fit (or at least doing phsyical activities) and won't be doing drugs.

I remember in an interview with Ken Bryson of Palm Beach Vipers he mentioned how parents would thank him because of paintball their lives has changed because they do that and have fun and aren't doing what they were before which was most likely going to land them in jail. Note that while typing this paragraph I walked away so I forgot what I was kinda gonna say lol
