2021.10.22 01:17 ellee79 My brother plays video games all day, and I think it might be a problem.
My brother is 12, and since lockdown (and even before that, but he would have to go to school) , he’s been sitting in his room playing minecraft with his family friends from 9am-10pm (his family friends doesn’t play the whole day). He only ever comes out to eat (when he does, he eats as quickly as he could then leaves to go and play), or go to the toilet, or if he needs something.
I feel like he is starting to be more rude. When my mum calls him to have dinner he’ll shout “wait!” in such an impatient voice. Then if he gets very annoyed, when he is having dinner with us, he has an angry look on his face.
When my mum asks him to do something, he never does it, and it makes both my mum and my brother annoyed.
If my mum wants us to go out to a mall, if even just to drive around while she gets stuff (because covid), he would always say no, and when my mum reprimands him, again, he has an angry look on his face while we’re in the car.
Lately, I haven’t been talking to him much, because when I tell or show him something he’ll sometimes ignore me even when I’m right there or say “that sucks” “that’s lame” when he only looks at the thing I’m showing him for 1 second then goes back on his phone. It discourages me to talk to him and I think “what’s the point, when HE doesn’t even make the effort”. When I talk to him it honestly feels like talking to a wall.
For school, my brother doesn’t take action to do his schoolwork. My mum always have to tell him to do it, and my brother will say “I’ll do it later” but only does it if my mum pushes him to. I think it’s also because since I’m the older one (and he’s the youngest), I’ve always had to do my schoolwork independently, while my mum always helped my brother, which might lead him to think that my mum has to guide him on this.
I also think my dad has had some influence, as he has a quick temper and procrastinates and shouts. Although my dad hasn’t been with us for 2 years because he’s overseas (my parents aren’t divorced and my brother and I call him often), and lately he’s been quite alright.
Another thing, in primary school, when he was 10 and I was 12, I said something sarcastically to his friend (that wasn’t super personal about my brother, don’t worry) and he looked at me with murder in his eyes and mouthed “kill you”. I knew he wasn’t going to do it obviously, but the way he said it scared me.
So basically, he isn’t interested in anything other than gaming with his friends, and his manners are lacking, and I’m not sure what to do. I’m honestly worried that he’ll turn out like my dad (when he’s angry) when my brother gets older.

Are there any active classic servers out there or are they all pretty much dead? Thinking of creating a Horde toon on Whitemane but am unsure how alive the communities are on any of the servers.
