Parenting is hard work and it’s hard to get through to your kids sometimes in a way that’s meaningful that will help them to realize what they’re doing is wrong and to learn and grow from the experience. I am not going to expound on parenting methodology here, other than to say that I think it is a good thing when parents care enough to stay involved with their children’s lives and try to teach them respect and responsibility.
The father in this video had dealt with respect issues and problems with his daughter’s activities on Facebook and when it happened again, he decided to provide a lesson that she wouldn’t soon forget. It seems like the entire world won’t forget it either.
What do you think? Do you think that the father went too far or do you applaud him for his dramatic parenting style?
