I think he's a nutter
Effectively, this could have been any one of us, as we have all at one time or another used this forum or other social media to have a whinge about another.
Should we have our laptops shot??
I am really surprised anyone thinks this is an appropriate form of punishment I once snapped my teenager's sim card in half after he racked up a $1300 mobile bill and THAT made me feel like crap

While I can see the point you're trying to make, I think of it like that smacking thing people say, "Would it be okay if a husband smacked his wife?" etc. No, because it's not a husband's place to discipline his wife. Same with this really - he could have simply taken away the laptop which I'm sure a lot of people would be okay with (who are not okay with destroying it)... but a husband has no right to do that to his wife either. It's a different kind of relationship.
I'd think DP was a right pr*ck if he decided he could "ground" me and ban me from watching TV and make me go to bed early. All of these things I can do with DD though, quite rightly IMO, as her mother and as it's my duty to discipline her. We have a different kind of relationship than a married couple do... husband and wife and father and daughter are different relationships, and can't really be compared IMO.

You don't have to have a loud gun and a loud voice to be an intimidating, aggressive, confronting, inappropriate, immature and WRONG.
There was nothing brilliant about it.
Wish yesterday's post wasn't closed and I think made quite a valid point which I hope you took into consideration.

Why does everyone who has an opinion that's in the minority get attacked???

I don't think there is ever a good reason to pull out a gun. I also don't believe there is ever a reason to destroy property. It's wasteful. It shows a lack of respect towards his daughter (who may or may not have deserved it), it shows a lack of respect towards property, it shows a lack of respect towards the environment. It shows that he has no issue pulling out a gun. The gun part I find disturbing. Just because you are allowed to have one over thete, doesn't mean you have to. And owning one doesn't mean you have to use it.

Apparently the dad has done an update in response to all the attention...
I'm off to watch it now.
Actually, it's a written response from him.
There's a link to his open facebook page as well on the link to the site above.
He actually comes across as a pretty decent dad. Unconventional for sure, but decent.

Thanks for the link kalgirl!
It's interesting to read, and he doesn't come across as some horrible jerk parent. He comes across as a parent doing what he thought was best and most effective. Whether it works or has a long-term impact on his daughter... well, time will tell I suppose. None of us can sit here and say we know if it'll do her any good or any harm.
