Hmmm. I’m not at all convinced that the whole incident where that dad made a big old YouTube video of him shooting his daughter’s laptop after she badmouthed him and his wife on Facebook is genuine. And if it is, I’m not at all convinced that his approach was a good one.
Sure, everyone likes to high-five each other and yell “Take THAT, you whiny spoiled ungrateful kids!” But is that really good parenting? I’d have to know a whole lot more about the situation before I’d say it is.
Anyway, I just saw over on Dean’s World (in the comments) that the laptop he shot was PAID FOR BY THE DAUGHTER. So after all of his blah blah blah about how she can have another one when she can buy it herself, he shot one she bought herself.
That pretty much makes him a jerk in Murdoc’s humble opinion.
FWIW, I pretty much agree with most of Dean’s thinking on the subject.
