Are you kidding.. what an ass hole you are. As a parent you should be mature enough to cut your daughter some slack. You should be glad that she took out her frustrations by writing then down. Next time she might vent her anger with drugs, alcohol or self mutilation. And what kind of responsible adult takes out his anger with a gun.. are you insane? Are you teaching by example? Would you like her to use a gun on the dishwasher next time? Choose your battles wisely. Believe it or not you might need someone to wipe your ass one day.. You will wish you had someone willing to put up with you.

The key here is respect. When "Dad" learns to show some, then maybe he'll get some. ohhh... I just got to the "stepmother" part... yeah, no respect.... Too bad he didn't have a round left for his self.

Heroic. Her disrespect of her parents was public, so I totally agree with this form of punishment. And, no, a fifteen year old ~child~ does not get to have secrets from her parents of this magnitude, especially not the kind that involve disseminating information on the internet. I doubt many would be so shocked if his 'invasion' of her privacy had uncovered a predator trying to trap her into illegal sexual activity.

Bit of an over-reaction but he's right. Kid's these days want want want but seem to think this stuff just magically appears and doesn't have to be earned. Having said that, she'll probably end up going postal and killing the pair of them. Happy days!

His critique of his daughter's behaviour is spot on, his manner of addressing it is wrong on so many levels. His vengeance only teaches that retaliation is right. His violation of her privacy and public shaming will not result in more compliance, but more rebellion. He is mistaking 'telling' for communicating. I think this could have been addressed much sooner and better with a conversation around why she blocked her parents from her facebook page. Best rule for parenting in this instance? Praise publicly, correct privately.

Well, ultimately this guy has just screwed himself. He will be under the watchful eye of Child and Family Protection services, unlikely to get a job or a promotion for his incredible lack of judgement, and in most jurisdictions, he will be either fined or arrested for firing a gun in the city limits. Thanks for the evidence, Cletus!

Top man! Don't know if i would have blown the laptop up having spent time and effort on it the day before, but each to their own i guess. Kids that show no respect need to be dealt with in this manner. She's lucky he wasn't putting a few rounds into her lol

I hadn't watched it to the end,but boy of boy, I like his style. If only more parents were that responsible and were parents to their children instead of "anything for a quite time" drones, we would not have a generation of kids that think that the world owes them a living and they deserve everything they want. He was obviously deeply upset and justifyably so. Good one guy. kat

Don't be a dick. The kid is 15 , still living under his roof, at his expense and obviously has a pretty decent life THANKS TO HIM. She seems to think that being asked to do a little towards running the house is like being kept in slavery if you believe what she wrote on facebook. She was warned about a prior event and now she'll respect the fact that he'll keep his word. I would say it is she who needs to elevate herself. Kids aren't always 'victims' and, since this girl's father almost certainly paid for the computer in the first place, he has the right to do what he wants with it when she abuses the trust he placed in her use of it.

Pwnd!! Fair play to him. The disrespect shown by some people can only be tolerated so far. Most of these people are a scourge on society and contribute little or nothing positive anyway. That girl should get a job, and start being respectful to people.

Well, the guy has basically just screwed himself very publicly. He will now be under the scrutiny and possibly investigation of Child and Family Protection Services, he will likely be denied a job or promotion based on his rash action, and if self-employed, he will lose at least some clients, he will not be able to be bonded for security clearance, and shows himself firing a gun in the city limits, which in most jurisdictions is a at least a fine, and in some indictable. Thanks for the evidence, Cletus!

Why is everything being lived out on the internet? Who needs Jerry Springer or Ricki Lake these days, when we've got our own media to embarrass ourselvles on? FYI, hurt feelings play a large part in retribution and retaliation.

I don't really see how the teenage girl is wrong. She does all the work and it's true that she would get grounded if she didn't do it, and she also has to follow school work. Of course she would think it's unfair to clean after everyone; everyone should clean after themselves. She was a little harsh when she talked about the "a$$ wiping" and nobody is supposed to do any chores around the house. Everyone should do their own thing. I don't really see why parents would ground her for EXPRESSING her opinion. It's just her opinion, and everyone has freedom to express opinions. Everyone's life is different, but grounding someone for an opinion? The teenager isn't going to learn anything. Really. If they were to learn something, you have to let them make mistakes on their own. Stating an opinion is not bad. Who wants to have their teenage daughter be a shut-up and too shy to express anything? NO ONE hires people like this. Employers only want to hire people who are not shy and who are HONEST about their opinions. She was just being honest about her opinion and she didn't say it straight to her parents faces SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO FEEL LET DOWN. About the laptop destroying part, I ALMOST CRIED. There are children in Africa who are hungry and you can SELL this laptop for at least $200 and donate that money to feed hungry children. I hate it when others burn money like this. Also, who is being revengeful here? It's the parent. The parent doesn't seem to be any different from the child, except for the parent tells the child straight up what would hurt her the most, AND destroys her laptop, while the child just secretly writes her opinion on facebook, NOT telling it to the parents face so she wouldn't hurt her parents. NO ONE is obligated to take care of their parents after they turn 18, and right now, I think this girl will ONLY THINK WORSE of her parents and will want to get out of the house EVEN FASTER. Punishment will not teach teens anything, it will only make them hate their parents more. If a parent cares for their teenager, they would not provoke them. Fight words with WORDS, not by destroying stuff! If she says something bad about you, then say something bad about her! Of course she is going to be even more hateful and revengeful after this and she will dislike her parents even more. Destroying her laptop was simply pointless. This is being said from a perspective of a 16 year old teen who attends college and started college at 15, also had a job at 15 in order to pay for college classes-- and I completely respect the opinions and choices of others; whether they want to be ambitious about school or they just want to enjoy their life; it's all their choice. I might not choose something for myself, but I would never threaten someone because of an OPINION. If I was the one who found this message written towards me, I'd talk it out with that person and find a compromise. I would NOT ground anyone just because of an opinion.

Get a grip. What is secret about facebook. The point here is Hannah disrespected her parents and shamed herself and her family in a very public way. I think dad simply gave Hannah a taste of her own medicine. It could have been worse. He did no more to her than she had done to them. That was the whole point of what he did. Now she feels the pain she has caused her parents. Obviously this was a second offense and she had made a similar post before. Dad stepped up and gave her what she deserved. Hannah won't make this mistake again. A hard lesson learned. But Hannah brought this on herself. Spot on Dad!

This man isn't trying to show you how to raise your kids and he doesn't deserve the criticism from all the amateur analysts on here. He's doing what he thinks is right, albeit a bit heavy handedly, for HIS daughter. How he does it is entirely his own choice and the consequences are his to carry. It doesn't matter how his daughter takes the news that her computer is dead; he's being a dad in the same way he is every day - the girl as good as spat in his face and we all saw how he deals with that.

Kids have it way to easy today....If you do not believe the respect level is at a low go hang out at any middle or high school for awhile! Some kids wants something for little effort. There are still a lot of good kids but they catch grief from thr loser kids who cut them down.
