You don't get to leave her out

My boyfriend and his son have been glued to a stupid video game for like the last 4 days. Our daughter wants to play with the. And they keep telling her no. I finally went in and took the power cord for the Xbox and wouldn't give it back until they let her play too. They don't get to leave her out because he is here. It doesn't work that way. She isn't a toy he can put on a shelf until his son goes home. She is a person and she deserves her Dads time and attention too. *end rant*

Thats silly. Most likely she'd be in the way. Maybe you should play with her.

7 Days to Die. She is 7. She is perfectly capable of playing it too. She actually does a very good job.

Why'd you let that go on for 4 days? I'd have ripped out the power cord after the first day.

She's 7 not a baby and she wants to play video games with her Dad and her big brother.

I would have taken the cord away period, no one plays now. If they want to act like assholes and be stingy, you can also

I should have. I was trying to be nice but I'm done being nice now.

I'd have done the same thing. Your husband should make sure the three of them are having fun times together.

I would use it as an opportunity to have mommy-daughter time, but that's just me.
