I really want to get minecraft, so once my dad gets home. I want to ask him if he can buy it for me. Since I am expecting his initial answer to be "No!" How can I convince him to say yes? (In other words, I want to have my argument ready.)

I'm twelve, with no source of income. If I had the money I would.

Earn it then by doing other things.

Buy it yourself!

Your mummy and daddy won't buy everything for you all your life!

You could say that you will do chores that they want you to do for a week, and then as a reward they will buy it for you.

I think this is the best answer. Make a deal with your parents offering chores.

I fully agree with @Jackster1337 plus when you do that for a long time they'll actually buy more for you (at least that how it feels for me). My parents just bought me a new office chair for $~100 (€75 converted), two 4Gb RAM cards for $~80 (€55 converted) and they paid $~75 (€50 converted) for my trip to GamesCom, and all that in just one week while I'm the richest in the family :)

Lol, Lucky for me When I asked this question... Eid (muslim holiday) was just a few days away... So my parents bought it for me as an Eid present.

I have a hard time even getting my parents to pay me for chores. I usually go down my street and ask if I can do yard work for the neighbors. This can include mowing grass in the summer, raking leaves in the fall, and used to include shoveling snow, but I moved to Texas, and it doesn't snow here. It might take a long time to mow someones lawn each week for the whole summer, but it will be nice once you see how much money you make.
