    I didn't agree with shooting the laptop, but i'm fine with the public shaming of a 15 yr old that had already been disciplined for the same sort of thing (grounded and priviledges removed).

    I don't think it would damage her chances with a prospective employee... I think it would improve them if she showed herself to have learnt.

    He didn't threaten her, he did call her lazy, but i think that was warrented.

    My opinion. I know lot's won't agree, but, meh

    I thought it was brilliant. He was not yelling, he was calm and I highly doubt she was scared of the gun, he seems to live in the country and she has prob been raised around guns a .45 does not make a loud noise and she is almost an adult.

    That's exactly what I thought too. I also wonder what goes on in private if he behaves like this in public.

    I don't give a toss if guns are more acceptable in America, that's a whole other thread. It is however completely unacceptable to use a gun in disciplining your child.

    I still think the same as when I saw it the first time in yesterday's thread.


    It was threatening and intimidating behaviour.

    I know we don't have the normality of guns here in Aus..but seriously - if someone, say.. put a kitchen knife through one of my laptops because of what I has said on FaceBook ..I'd be contacting the police for a restraining order.

    -- might be best you try a different parenting tactic dude

    I saw this last night. Honestly I think good on him! For creating a video publically embarrassing his daughter. What a spoilt little teen she is and how rude was she acting like a victim like she is a slave and they do nothing.

    Maybe shooting the laptop when a little to far, I obviously wouldn't do it for the fact that I cant afford to buy a new laptop. They dont come cheap. But obviously grounding her didn't work, so he took it to the next level.

    Teenagers these days are getting more distrespectful and out of control. So this is a perfectly reasonable way to teach his daughter a lesson since this is the second time she disrespected them on a public forum.

    Remember everyone has their own parenting techniques and this dad chose to shoot her laptop. Guns are apart of the American culture after all.

    Personally I would've just taken away the laptop, her phone and grounded her. Not shot up her laptop. Let her use the laptop for school purposes ONLY and watch her do her work on there and once she was done with her school work take it back and lock it away.

    I can't for the life of me think why she might not respect her parents. I just can't. I mean she should be so stoked to have parents who thinks GUNS are an appropriate parenting tool.

    What awesome life lessons she could learn if only she'd do what they tell her. For a start she'd learn how to use a .45. What every teenager needs. Imagine how cool it would be if she could show her friends how to use a gun!

    *insert eye roll here*

    I think it's disturbing guns are such a big part of american culture, and just bc they are, doesn't make it an appropriate or effective discipline technique.

    I dunno maybe I'm crazy but I got grounded for doing things then still made mistakes as a teen. So ground her longer, take away her laptop for a month, take her pocket money, remove transportation privileges for a month. I can think of a dozen more appropriate ideas than this....

    You're right. It's probably the first time he has shot something while parenting. But now he's had 2million hits on YouTube and feels like a bit of a star he'll probably do it again. Next time maybe not a laptop. Maybe one of her friends who stays too late? Or a boyfriend he doesn't like?

    Are you serious? You think this man will shoot someone for staying to late?
