If the laptop was hers, then he had no right to destroy it and he certainly had no right to be aggressive as a parent or humiliate her. It's disgusting parenting IMO.

I'd have no hesitation in throwing away (thereby destroying) something that belonged to my child as a punishment if their actions justified it. I don't think that means I'm not treating my child like a human being. I wouldn't post it on you tube, but I don't think his actions were disgusting parenting.

I think there are obviously communication problems in this family. The fact he has to use YouTube to voice his opinion instead of talking to his child etc.. he comes across as one of those parents who puts down their kid in front of them constantly.
If he thinks that he is coming across as being "right" by posting this video he's failed. He doesn't do himself any favours. But that's just my opinion.

In referance to your second statement - the girl lost her property (which her father paid for) as a consequence of her poor behaviour using said property. Much like a hoon can have their car turned into a cube if they misuse it.

Mad an attachment parent and someone who wholeheartedly believes in gentle guidance the whole thing goes against everything I believe in.

There have been many groups of people throughout history who have been considered to be unequal in terms of their rights or brain function. They have been terribly used an abused within the systems that supported that unequal treatment. Take out 'child' in your example and insert 'Aboriginal'. Or 'homosexual'. Or 'wife'. Or 'African American'. Or 'quadraplegic'.
See how offensive it is?
Children are less mature. They are not less human. Being less mature requires that we given them more protection, not less.
I'm just astounded that apparently intelligent people can't see the glaring hypocrisy of this man's actions.
