Okay so this year (around janurary) I got a tablet and my own laptop using MY birthday/christmas money. So now I have it, and for the past....like...two weeks my little brother has found an interest in it. Every single time he gets bored, he goes up to my mom and says, "Can I use "the" tablet." He says it in a way that makes it sound like it's just there...like the whole family shares it. My mom ALWAYS says "yes you can use it". So then my mom kicks either me or my sister off of our laptops and lets HIM go on OUR laptop and use OUR tablet that WE bought. He always complains that he can't use the tablet in the family computer because it doesn't have the right "drawing softwear"(the family comp is a mac, and Easy Paint Tool Sai doesn't work on apple computers.) I ALWAYS say to him, "Just USE PAINT ON IT" and he's always crying and complaining saying how he doesn't like MS Paint.

So bacically I need help getting him to STOP USING MYYYYY STUFF!!!
 
Rub poison ivy all over it, so next time he touches it he get's a rash.
He'll never go near it ever again.

Or one of those little videos that a ghost pops out and scares the jeepers out of him.
I saw that on my computer when I was younger and didn't go near my computer for days.
 
My bro does that sometimes >-> I know how ya feel.

Oh Kalinn. You never fail in making me laugh. xD
 
You could:
1) Hide your Tablet/ Say you lent it to a friend.
2) Only use your laptop in your room.
3) Tell your Mum that it's your laptop/ Negotiate with her to buy your brother his own Laptop and Tablet.
 
how old is he?

you can maybe get him a sketch book and some colored pencils (the erasable ones would be best xD) if he likes to draw. Or you could introduce him to different things on the computer besides drawing like internet games. Even better, buy him a computer game for your mac that he'd enjoy and stop bugging you.
 
Delete the art software on your computer, or hide it somewhere he can't find it and then when he uses it and complains the art software is gone, rage at him telling him that he screwed up your computer and pretend it's going to take you days to fix it.
 
Yeah how old is he?
When me and my brother were small, dam I took his cars and played with them. lol
And he used to come to me to use my laptop [The desktop computer was laggy but its fixed now] ,but I let him on because he rarely uses the computer.
 
I feel you, except my whole family uses it. I won't let my sister on it unless it's for something important when I get my own laptop.

If I hide my table, my mom would yell at me and say, "GIVE IT TO ME!!!" and my brother is too young to buy stuff (he's 7)

Tell him no.

Then approach your mother as an adult and reason with her why he does not deserve to use it and shouldn't be babied.

Also, only child with a computer in my room 8D

My mom would just get mad at me and say something like, "Why don't you want him to use it?!"

When my mom asked me that question the other day....

Me: Because it's mine. I bought it with my own money!
My Mom: That's not a good enough reason not to let him use it. Let him use it now.
Me: I don't understand why he can't go on the other comp.

----few min later---
Mom: YOUR GROUNDED!

Ohohoho most American parents.

And what does he go on, anyway? Websites that have no knowledge of internet culture? I scoff at him.
