      Just seen this video and after reading some of the comments he is getting praised for punishing his daughter like this.

      *WARNING, CONTAINS SOME FOUL LANGUAGE*



      What are your thoughts?

      lol, I think the dad has got some rights to complain about his daughter, although, if I put myself in his daughter's shoes, I'd see why she'd get really mad about her dad finding it out on FB. I mean, I really would dislike the fact that my parents would discover the things I posted on my fb wall. My FB wall's kinda private and intimate you know? XDD

      Absolutely agree with this man. If she is going to post something like that on her wall, she should have made sure they couldnt see it. Her fault. And keep in mind she is dissing the hands that feed her and put a roof over her head. Its not much to ask her to do chores and by the sounds of it, her chores werent that hard. She just wanted something to whine about, she was most likely PMS'ing. Lol...But she did and tried to make s*** out of her parents, I think what he did was very appropriate. My husband and I talked about this video also and we would have done the same thing if we had thought of it. HOORAH!!! to this dad. :)

      And the father was right, a cleaning lady would work 10 or 20 times harder than his own daughter by the sound of it. XDD And I think the punishment wasn't harsh at all.

      I was thinking the same thing myself and so where many others when I saw this video and viewed the comments. Only way I can think of is if she manages to gain internet access away from home, saying that though I am guessing her friends would have seen it and either told her about it or shown her it.

      I think he mentioned that he knew she wouldn't see the video but was just making a statement toward her for her friends to see.

      Message was edited : removed the video because it's in the first post and added my feedback of the video.

      Let's begin, :)

      In the video he said that she might not be able to watch the video ever or maybe when she goes to college.

      Anyway, the girl should have known this would have happened. Honestly, I don't feel sorry for her, :)

      it is a common mistake.

      people think they can hide behind their internet identity.

      but often we witness problems because of the things people say on their blogs or FB profiles...

      Yes but if you are a juvenile under their care, they are responsible for you and your welfare. If you were to meet someone on FB that isn't what they claim to be and they were to do horrible things whether online or offline with you, then your parents would have failed to keep you safe.

      I think the dad should not have shot the laptop, I think he should have got rid of it though. He should have disciplined her for her actions simply by banning her from electronics and making her (while watching) delete her online social network accounts.

      You're kinda right on that too, put it that way, I see that you're right on spot. But still a wee bit too radical of the father to shoot her lappy.
