The man is a narcissist and a publicity wh0re, when he started getting all those reactions on his youtube video he posted a link to his personal facebook page to promote his businesses and book, he is loving it. He just keeps writing his drivel to keep everyone interested, if he really wanted privacy he would shut the f up. He is giving no thought to his daughter's well being at all.
I just can't understand what people find funny about this gun toting hick.
A teenager's brain is not fully developed to the point that they are able to make fully rational decisions. This is why they are not allowed to drink, buy houses, get married etc. etc. It is a parent's responsibility to guide and discipline their child so they make good choices. It is perfectly acceptable for a parent to expect that their teenager will respect them. Disrespect needs to be dealt with. I wouldn't shoot a laptop, but I'd have no hesitation in throwing it in the bin.
Comparing a husband/wife to a parent/child is ridiculous.
Who said anything about hitting?
I found this (from the Dad's blog) interesting:
I told her about the video response and about it going viral ... and asked if she wanted to see some of the comments people had made. After the first few hundred comments, she was astounded with the responses.
People were telling her she was going to commit suicide, commit a gun-related crime, become a drug addict, drop out of school, get pregnant on purpose, and become a stripper because she’s too emotionally damaged now to be a productive member of society. Apparently stripper was the job-choice of most of the commenters. Her response was “Dude… it’s only a computer. I mean, yeah I’m mad but pfft.” She actually asked me to post a comment on one of the threads (and I did) asking what other job fields the victims of laptop-homicide were eligible for because she wasn’t too keen on the stripping thing.
I think kids are much stronger than some people give them credit for. Often on this forum people talk about how certain things will 'damage' a child, but I honestly think humans are not so easily ruined (for want of a better word). Not everything that happens to us in life is going to to awesome, but some bad things make us stronger (like discipline from a loving parent).
You didn't, but people use the same argument you used to justify his behaviour to justify hitting kids.
