Whether or not you'll agree with Tommy's response to his careless daughters behavior no one got hurt except a laptop. I say its a good lesson learned so why go against it.......Heck many of you are saying that he shouldn't have resolved to the use of a gun but what the hell would you know 50% of you have guns but against it.........does that make sense??????
@sneakerbean.....I was a brat like this kid when I was her age. Had I have had a laptop and Facebook I likely would have acted out the same way. I assure you that taking the computer away, grounding, counseling.....would NOT have changed me much. I was already being counseled for an eating disorder and had fun messing with my counselors.
Now. What this dad did? Oh hell yeah that woulda got my attention. The laptop--property of the parents--was made useless. Not taken away, not sold, but destroyed.
That kid had it pretty easy. Not only did her parents provide her a laptop, dad was gonna update it for her. All while she trashed them on Facebook. She deserved every bit of what dad dished out to her. She wants another one? Work and buy one then. Really, I don't believe counseling would have had the same effect.
@Sneakerbean.... I will agree to disagree. However, read Jen's comments.
@Just me....simple question: What guarantee do you have this daughter will never post negatively on facebook again? Computers are available at school and elsewhere. Did they get their issues resolved between them? No. Will this ensure their communication skills will improve between them so that they work out the differences? No. Thus, don't be so quick to say, "Lesson learned." You don't know that yet. Sorry, but these two including Mom need to sit down with a professional and work out stuff. The girl is posting this stuff because of a bad attitude, granted, but also this family has got some barriers here that need to be worked through. A few bullets into a laptop certainly isn't going to solve 'em! Discipline needs to be handled properly to be the most effective....I very much question this was the effective approach. If it was? I'd think you'd using it as well, yet you stated YOU wouldn't do it! And there's a reason for you saying it...isn't there!
That's the best thing I've seen a white parent do so far. I guess spankings aren't always the answer. At the end of the day, a spanked bottom will heal. But this type of embarrasment will never die down. Not to mention the way she should feel to hear her daddy say I'm disappointed in you. WOW! I bet they play this on BEST WEEK EVER on E primetime
I would hate to feel the tention in that house. Just behave for the next year and all will be good. Worst case because you are grounded put the focus in your studies get a scholrship to a far away university and start over lmao.
@sneakerbean....counseling? I dunno......I think the brat needed this kind of wake up call, not 'counseling', which is often a joke in my experience. The same way some criminals need jail ('talking' to them doesn't always work), some ungrateful bratty children need more jolting consequences.
Why the argument over the gun? What difference does it make on how he destroyed the laptop? Destroying something requires the use of force and some kind of 'violence', another thing many of you are arguing over. Whether he stomped it, hit it with a baseball bat, used an ax, who cares? Oh. No. He SHOT it. By sayin shooting the laptop was inappropriate, I could just as easily say baseball bats should be for baseball only. And axes for chopping wood or firefighting only. Come on people. So he shot it.
I'm in law enforcement and really do not see a problem here.
@Sneakerbean.... I support his decision because he disciplined his daughter. She won't put stuff like that on facebook again. Lesson learned. All parents have a method to the way they discipline. It truly is to each their own as long as within the law. I would rather a father like this than one who lets their daughter go wild!
ok..ok.. would you rather have him shoot the gun as a punishment, or punish her by spanking/ hitting her?
he should have used a 12 guage that will teach her for disrespecting her parents
