I'm going to go ahead an copy something that somebody on Tumblr said that I agree with 100 percent.

No.

This is not ok.

If you have fucked up so badly at parenting that your kid is making posts like the above, property destruction and implied violence aren't appropriate responses. This is not how functional adult people behave.

Hannah, in the video, doesn't respect her father.

Given that her father invades her privacy, undermines her personal agency, and doesn't have basic trust for her....I fully comprehend why she doesn't. Respect is earned and taught. If Hannah posts giant, frustrated rants about her chore load, it probably implies that she doesn't feel that her efforts are appreciated or that she's an integral member of the family or household (alienation and over individuation is a huge problem for teens; it's part of the formation of adult identity separate from parents and kind of a huge trap.

Teenagers are frustrated because their lives are absurd. They're expected to have adult behavior with no adult agency. Maturity and decision making are learned skills. If parents don't like the way their teens are behaving, they need to ask themselves where that behavior was learned. If she feels entitled, what have you been doing -her entire life- to communicate the real value of what she has and should be grateful for? If she refers to the woman who cleans for you as 'the cleaning lady' is that because she's noted that you treat that woman that way? Asking for payment for work is not unreasonable; it's an understanding of capitalism. A less asshat response than 'are you out of your mind' would be a basic rundown of the costs of the household in terms of food, heating, etc and what percentage of that Hannah should reasonably be responsible for. Given that she has no economic agency of her own, expressing to her that her chores are a means of repayment for that.

I grew up -poor- and my parents were still giving me an allowance by the time I was ten because that's how you teach kids how to manage earned income. I received a dollar a week (upgraded to five dollars a week when I was 12) for completing a list of chores. If they weren't done, I didn't get paid. Just like you don't get paid at a job if you don't show up. My parents also stopped buying luxury items for me around that age and made me buy them myself with earned and saved income from my chores, babysitting, recycling cans, making crafts and selling them, whatever. My parents helped me find jobs and gave me suggestions about what I could so to earn money. If Hannah is fifteen, she cannot legally obtain most forms of employment; has she been educated as to what economic opportunities are available to her? Because as a parent EDUCATING HER IS, IN FACT, YOUR JOB. You got her an application and made her apply? Did you take her with you and teach her the process of how to obtain applications and where to look for places that are hiring? Did you make sure the place you got the application from accepts underage employees (most do not) or walk her through the application process in terms of how to make herself an attractive applicant?

'When I was your age I'd moved out of the house, lived on my own, went to college while in highschool, worked two jobs, was a volunteer fireman'.... Uh....huh. And you didn't manage to impart any of this work ethic on your children, apparently. Also: You grew up in a very different economy, as a man. I'm willing to bet you had parents or other helpful adults who made you aware of the opportunities available to you. You are judging your daughter for having a different outcome than you had, when she sure as shit didn't have the same input.

Hannah is acting out in the most trivial of ways: Ranting and commiserating with friends. and even THAT outlet is being denied her. All the people above who liked and lauded this: Would you think it was awesome if Hanna was an adult woman who'd posted a frustrated rant about her significant other, and this was the significant other's response? Or would you consider this to be emotional abuse and a redflag for accelerating relationship violence? Because that's what this is: Emotional abuse. This is abusive parenting (looks like it's in the wake of/a response to earlier emotionally negligent parenting, too).

If your kid is a spoiled brat? It is not the kid's fault. Kids aren't born spoiled brats. Parental behavior causes this. This man is reaping the seeds he has sewn, and because he's unsatisfied with what his efforts have yielded, he's responding with aggression and punishment and social humiliation.

That is -fucked up-. You are a -shitty parent-. You are not training your child to be a functional adult.If you child lacks life skills, if your child does not respect you, if your child cannot think critically or understand the value of money or comprehend the importance of maintaining a household THAT IS YOUR FUCKING FAULT. This kind of extreme behavior is SERIOUSLY too little too late, and an act of aggressive desperation because YOU FUCKED UP.

If I were advising Hannah in this situation? I'd be helping her figure out ways to get the fuck away from these people and hook her up with resources that would teach her actual life skills.

Worth noting? This dude is shooting in what is clearly a residential area. That is unsound (though not necessarily criminal in his locality) behavior. This is not something to be celebrated. Property destruction and implied violence are not things to be celebrated. Emotional abuse in response to shitty teen behavior that results from bad parenting in the first place is not something to be celebrated.

This whole fucking family needs to get to family counseling STAT.

Seriously, why is it the daughter's fault? And why is the response that people applaud not 'Talk to your daughter' and instead 'Make a mockery out of how she feels on Youtube?'

Finally someone who gets it! There is not a gene that makes people spoiled or immature, it is not something that just happens. No, IT IS LEARNED! And it is a sign of bad parenting.

So when this guy was confronted with the fact that he and his wife are SHIT at parenting he could not cope with loosing the delusion of being a good parent and punished HER for HIS failure. And only retards and other failures applaud that.

Then they wouldn't be rights, they're be privileges, and that means it's a hell of a lot easier for the government to suppress people. This is the exact opposite of what James Madison wanted.

The second amendment was written at a time when 6 bullets per MINUTE was a fast shooter! I am convinced that it would have never been added if at that time modern weapons were around.

(start rant)
ok let me out this together an escapist post about a parent shooting something let me use my crystal ball to guess the response?
guns bad daughter bad chores good oh to my childhood it was better than hers
hot damn i was right how did i manage that? i cant be bothered to try and argue otherwise no i wont say that the gun is a meaningless inanimate object that could have been replaced by say a crowbar or a chair, or that maybe it was wrong for him to invade his daughters privacy, or that maybe he should cut her a break and let her have some down time or listen to her or respect her as a person no because none of you listen
sometimes this community really annoys me when they all start acting like arrogant bigots as thought their better than everyone else
(end rant)

Seriously have you watched the video? He mentioned on more than one occasion this has happened before, and the punishments didn;t work. He has tried the 'normal' way she didn't listen. So he now tries something that he knows will hit her where it hurts. Please watch the video first.

What I find mildly amusing is the fact that I can bet, had he smashed it to pieces with a hammer, many, many people in this thread would have given their support, but because he used a gun -hell no!. Personally I think he is a bimming hero - in my job I see too many children get away with blue murder because parents are frightened of standing up and being 'tough'. Over the top maybe, but deserved, hell yes!

To be perfectly honest I agree with him (the dad). And had he used a hammer I would have found it far more extreme. The difference between pulling a trigger calmly and flailing around with a hammer is massive, and I find the hammer to be a much more violent option.

Beautiful. Self-entitled bitch gets taught a lesson, $130 worth of software gets murdered, a couple of rounds of ammo got spent, and a dad got to thoroughly express his disappointment and anger at his aforementioned entitled daughter. Tough, an opportunity was certainly missed to take it out to a range and blow the living hell out out of it with an automatic, or even to put it into the skeet launch and see how many times one could hit it before it touched the ground.

Well done that man. The amenities available give an air of unearned entitlement. Personally, I'd just leave it on her desk, with a web address that she can look up at her leisure, on a post-it on top of it. If she wanted to discuss it, then we could talk.

That poor computer, though. It just underwent reconstructive surgery, only to be taken out and shot, execution style. Poor thing. It had just thought it would be stronger than ever, only to die.

Parents should shoot things when their child misbehaves, yeah that makes sense. Lets just have everyone shoot something when someone disrespects them. Im pretty sure thats where the phrase an eye for an eye comes from.

Fun fact to any parent wanting to do this to their kid's laptop:

Once you give someone something, it's that person's property. Even if you're a parent giving your kid something. The argument "I paid for it, so I can do whatever I want with it" doesn't actually hold water.

What we just witnessed was a guy filming himself stealing and destroying someone else's property - a felony offence.

Parents, please discipline your kids, but don't be idiots about it.

That is the most flat out wrong thing I have ever read. It was his property, he bought it, and allowed her to use it. You come off as just plain childish; I don't mean to insult you, but taking things away when a child misbehaves IS parenting.

Well I have to say that some of the things that girl said were rather bitchy...come on, chores? Guess what: everyone does chores. That part where she said 'We have a cleaning lady, just have her do it' did not endear her to me. And bedtime at 10pm? Wow, I used to work at night and didn't get home until 3 in the morning, I would have LOVED to be in bed by 10. If she had such a big issue with it she could have just, I don't know, talked to her parents about it.

As for his reaction...well...no. You want your kids to do chores? Get them to respect you. Even if you're the parent, you still have to earn respect, especially with teenagers. And I don't mean like pandering, but there's a difference between being a relentless hardass and being a good parent. You know how you lose the respect of your kids (or anyone for that matter)? Shoot their stuff. How he managed to get a job in IT I may never understand...

When she said "cleaning floors" I thought she had to go through the whole motions of vacuuming, mopping, steaming carpets, scrubbing tiles and I did find it ridiculous to expect that every day. But sweeping? Come on, I'm a complete bludger and I do more housework than this girl.

On-topic: He was responsible about the shooting; he did it in a deserted area where it was a certainty that nobody else was getting hurt. Technically it's his laptop too so it's kinda just an expensive, glorified target practice. My only issue with this is that the girl isn't going to get the message and will just assume her dad's crazy.

Read the law, it's there. Once you give someone something as a gift, it's that person's property.

As far as parenting goes, taking the laptop away from her for a while would probably do the girl good (and not a felony). What would be better: Family counseling.

Mortai Gravesend:
I'll repeat what I said in the other thread first:

Well it's his right to take it away and if she's being a brat, sure. But I think using a gun like that seems kind of irresponsible. I mean really, he's treating a weapon kind of like a toy there. And destroying it at all seems immature. Keep it from her, sell it, give it away, but why waste it? Out of some silly rage at a stupid comment?

As for your argument... Well I think that's silly. It's not as if there appeared to be any real danger to him firing into a laptop on the ground outside. Why would that change your mind? It seems a tad irresponsible as I said, but it didn't appear to be anything serious. No apparent danger really. If he pulled it out and started shooting at the laptop while she was using it, then that would seem problematic. This just seems... childish but not an issue.

Symbolism.

That's why he destroyed it. But I do realize that effigies aren't quite the rage for the average person as they once were.

He fired at a non-living object in the middle of farmland with no other living thing for a great distance away.

People fire guns every day all over the country at nonliving things within far closer proximity of other people.

Would I have been less concerned had he used a hammer, or a sword, or something else? Not really. He did something that would have been fairly commonplace a few generations back (just shooting something else instead of a laptop, wooden toys maybe).

He lost count? Well yeah...he's kind of doing a video and only has one take. I'm fairly camera shy myself and flub my thoughts.

My father and grandfathers were bother farmers, they take disobedience extremely seriously. I don't condone it but this guy acted like just about anyone I've known in his (apparent) profession.

I don't believe this is the case with kids. If it was then parents couldn't take away the money of child stars.

No I'm pretty sure that phrase came from maiming someone who maimed you, etc.

If someone punched you and you in turn punched a tree, that's not an eye for an eye, its not even on the same planet.

If everyone shot inanimate things to vent their anger I imagine we'd have less people getting hurt. I know personally getting into martial arts helped me vent out an incredible amount of internal turmoil as a young person, I ended up a happy and healthy individual.

Violence against nonliving things or safely with another willing person is a great way to help burn off steam and produce a fairly copious amount of endorphins.

I'm saying this also as someone who is deeply against war and violence against unwilling people. These things are some of the highest levels of horror in my eyes. People should be far more concerned with the reckless ejection of soldiers into foreign lands than a random guy shooting a portable computer.

This. My dad did a similar thing when I was younger, namely crushing my Game Boy Advance (which was all I really had at the time) with a hammer because he thought it was the root cause of my ADHD. Anyway, all I gained from the experience was a new GBA, because three days later he bought me a new one in a fit of guilt.

Yeah, I've always seen melee combat as much more visceral than guns.

That's part of the problem with guns, they make it easier to separate you from the damage you are inflicting. Though in that same way they are the better option for someone who is upset but not in a blood rage to express their disdain to a target, sign, laptop, etc.

Just imagine in your head getting shot, then imagine someone hacking at you with a machete. Both would be terrible but one (at least in my head) is far more horrifying than the other (the machete).

Good for him. the only issue I have with this is the range, he was a bit close and could have been hit by debris or a ricochet.

Actually it is a right in America and that's not going to be changed so you're wrong ;)

Though I agree it was wrong to use a .45 like I said in the other thread. A 12 gauge with buckshot would've been about 20% cooler

Rights should be either taken away or made more strict when abused by an individual. When someone boycotts someone's funeral, they should be sued for disturbing the peace and harassment, when someone unloads an entire clip into a computer for the sake of being angry they should lose their right to use a firearm due to displaying little to no discipline with the tool.

So if he used a hammer to break it you'd be calling for a ban/heavy restrictions on who can own hammers? A crowbar? Running it over with lawn equipment?

A gun is not a plaything or a toy.

It is if you use it recreationally. Being used as such does not mean it's used in an unsafe manner though. Mine are playthings, but I follow all the gun safety rules, I don't haphazardly discharge it in a way that might injure or damage anything I don't want injured or damaged, and I don't let unskilled people use it.

So does my perfectly safe recreational use of a .22 to shoot tin cans and old, dead computers warrant a ban? Or are you just being silly?

Edit: Besides, the law states that American's have the right to bare arms. Not to discharge them under any circumstance.

The only thing he endangered was himself. He didn't endanger the neighbors or his daughter, nor any passer's by. And honestly, if he'd have leaned it against a dirt mount 10-15 yards out, he wouldn't have endangered anyone[1] He didn't put anyone's safety at risk so there's no need to start bitching about getting a gun ban.

[1] this is how I shoot electronics, by the way. They're a safe distance away propped up by an ample backstop for a rifle several orders of magnitude stronger than the one I have. No change of collateral damage.

The father definitely has the right idea, but the problem is he's just made his daughter absolutely despise him, now.

A Raging Emo:

If you read the response you would find that she doesn't despise him, she even wanted him to shoot her phone and put it on youtube so they could make money by selling the casings.

I have already posted about this. So I will just take what I posted and put it here:

What is wrong with you people? This man just put 9 rounds into a stationary object because he was angry. Let me repeat myself; This man just unloaded a -gun- into a computer because he was angry. He has every right to punish his daughter, but this shows complete and total lack of control and discipline over himself by using a firearm to teach a lesson.

He lost count in how many bullets fired at that, because of his anger! And people support this? A gun is not a toy, it's a tool. A last resort and used to protect, not destroy. I've seen comments on this saying "An all American dad!" Are you people crazy or just plan stupid? Comments like that is exactly why our country is looked down on as gun tooting/war hungry morons! His entire point goes out the window when he shows how childish (Retaliating to her internet post--it's an internet post for crying out loud) with the use of a gun.

And people say the young are stupid.

I once believed that a gun should be a right, however after seeing how he used his firearm and people's encouragement of his action, I now believe that having a gun should be treated as a privilege instead of a right. I am an American, and I DO NOT agree with this man's methods of use of a firearm, nor raising a child.

Edit: However, chores are fine. Go chores.

I saw this on facebook and quite frankly, I couldnt agree more. The daughter is a class C cunt and needs to be taght a lesson. its not like he beat the lesson into her like some priest did, so whats the big deal? He wanted to send a major lesson and point, and he wanted to send it to her. Just cause he did this once doesnt mean he has anger issues. you're reading WAY too much into an isolated event without knowing the guy personally.

I'm not wrong since our rights have been violated anyway, as our right to a fair trial when under arrest has been revoked anyway. (Which I do no see any positive outcome from and I do not support.) A gun is not a plaything or a toy. I'm not sure if you a trolling or you are honestly that deluded.

Edit: Besides, the law states that American's have the right to bare arms. Not to discharge them under any circumstance.

With all due respect, you are wrong. The right to bear arms is a right whether you agree with it or not. The WBC has the right to protest funerals and we have the right to protest their protests. And just because the government has done things to revoke or lessen our rights doesn't mean we should be okay with them revoking or lessening other rights. That is complete bullshit. You should be angry anytime the government decides that our rights are too strong. That isn't done to protect us. It's done to protect themselves from us.

That video cracked me up. Well i guess two lessons have to be learned: privacy on facebook is the biggest myth ever. Never post anything you wouldn't want someone to see.
And secondly: don't act like a spoilt brat. Now off course the dad might have been sugar coating things but based on what he said his demands from her weren't that unreasonable. And while many teenagers most likely have it much easier than that one chick, it ain't a reason to act like a bitch on facebook.

To be honest i found the whole using a gun to shoot the laptop rather amusing and original.

I see nothing wrong with this really. Maybe using a firearm on a laptop is a bit much - a blunt object would be cheaper and easier, but hey, whatever works. A parent has a right to discipline their child providing it is within reason, and taking away their luxuries certainly is within reason.

While I do think discharging a gun into the laptop was a bit over the top and posting the video on her facebook as way over the top, I can't exactly blame him. His daughter obviously didn't know her place in the house and, from the way the post was worded, thought she was Queen in the house. I've had chores since I was around 12, and while most teenagers I did shirk them I never acted like made me a slave to them, I knew if I wasn't their child I would've over-stayed my welcome 1 week into staying there.

Slightly on topic, while I know I'm guilty of this, kids now a days act like their parents owe them something, and this isn't just a general statement to be a dick, I know first hand. I don't exactly know why this is, I think it's because this generation is focused around digital objects. More comes to us so easily than any other generation; information, entertainment. A huge second world can be accessed by most American teenagers, so most don't really know the value of real world objects, and don't know really how much work can go into getting something. Especially if they haven't had a job yet.

I'm 19 and I've just recently really learned the value of a dollar and how much effort it takes to obtain it, and I've had a job for two years lol.

I'm sorry, but you are a part of the cancer that is killing your country. First off, he was angry, but in total control, he didn't do it in blind rage, it was a calm and collected method of punishing his daughter. He didn't just whip out his gun and start unloading rounds all over the place, he did it in a completely safe and responsible manner ensuring that the only thing that got hurt was the laptop.

Since he wasn't using the gun dangerously or out of blind rage, how is it any different than any other method to break the laptop?

You say guns aren't toys, well how do you use that logic to justify that things such as hunting, shooting ranges, skeet shooting and such are all socially acceptable forms of recreational entertainment. Guns are to all intents and purposes just expensive toys for those pastimes.

As for the punishment itself, his daughter is a brat, that was a very brutal message she left in public view for everybody to see. He said he grounded her before for a similar offense, he said he warned her that the next time she would do more than just lose her laptop for a while. She went ahead and disrespected her entire family over some trivial bullshit, and she paid the price.

He paid for everything with his money, so it's hard to even call the laptop hers in the first place, he was just destroying his own property.

The dad shouldn't have shot the laptop. He should've destroyed it with some other method that's less reckless, and less dangerous to the people in the area.

The way the gun was used wasn't dangerous for anyone. He didn't shoot in the wild, the laptop was on the ground meaning that no lost bullet that went through could have hit anyone. So how is that dangerous? Worst case scenario he killed some ants that crowled under the laptop.

I also heard wal mart banned a scissor sisters CD for it's lyrics, doesn't the same store also sell guns and CD's from artists like 50 cent and eminem, who swear, use words like "nigga" and aren't exactly woman friendly.

The way the gun was used wasn't dangerous for anyone. He didn't shoot in the wild, the laptop was on the ground meaning that no lost bullet that went through could have hit anyone. So how is that dangerous? Worst case scenario he killed some ants that crowled under the laptop.

Don't you know bullets-especially holowpoints like he was using that are designed specifically to expend most of their energy on impact can fly through the ground, rocket out and lock on like heat seeking missiles to anything with a pulse within a five mile radius?

Really guys. He shot at the ground, with only himself present, using holowpoints. The only way he could have possible done this safer is if he first put on a bulletproof vest, police taped his entire property, and put up fliers throughout the neighborhood warning everyone to take shelter at specifically the time he was filming. Alright, so I'm being overdramatic. Maybe he could have put it on a stand to eliminate any risk of riccocheting bits from the ground, but he did not in any way pose any imaginable danger to anyone but himself, and the danger to himself was less than we experience every time we walk on slightly uneven ground.

He'd be more likely to hurt himself swinging a hammer than shooting the gun like he did.

You also pick some really weird things to ban ...

I also heard wal mart banned a scissor sisters CD for it's lyrics, doesn't the same store also sell guns and CD's from artists like 50 cent and eminem, who swear, use words like "nigga" and aren't exactly woman friendly.

Anyway more on topic. Going redneck on a laptop is little "typical American" but FPSRussia does shit like this all the time.

What??
The Kinder egg is BANNED in USA??!
Poor children will never know what they're missing out on :,(

On Topic:
I don't know what to say, doesn't sound like my methods of choice for an upbringing.
I am really stunned, really.

Wait till you find those bars of kinder egg chocolate....

OT: I understand he did it to make a point, but it seems like he responded with equal measures of childishness.

Oh phew, at least you have those, then it's OK, no need to worry anymore xD

Yeah, there's a wall of text up on page 3 which sais most of this pretty clearly.
And I guess childish is a way to explain this, but hey, if you have problem there are 3 ways of fixing it.
1) solve the problem
2) wait untill the problem solves itself/goes away
3) make sure the problem doesn't excist anymore

He clearly went for optio number 3 althou Facebook and all her updates are still there so he made number 3 like 50% done, I doubt he will shoot the kid...

I'm going to go ahead an copy something that somebody on Tumblr said that I agree with 100 percent.
....

Seriously, why is it the daughter's fault? And why is the response that people applaud not 'Talk to your daughter' and instead 'Make a mockery out of how she feels on Youtube?'

Finally someone who gets it! There is not a gene that makes people spoiled or immature, it is not something that just happens. No, IT IS LEARNED! And it is a sign of bad parenting.

So when this guy was confronted with the fact that he and his wife are SHIT at parenting he could not cope with loosing the delusion of being a good parent and punished HER for HIS failure. And only retards and other failures applaud that.

People should understand by now that a loud minority (I dont want to believe its the majority) on escapist applauds bad parrenting and hates kids. This is why such things here are so supported, they hate kids. Therefor they dont need to hear about kids being treated like normal human-beings. Actually, the more mistreatment it seems the more they like the story. Im pretty sure back when the video of the father that 'hit' his daughter came up like half those people were supporting it because (OH, IT WAS ONLY WITH THE BACK OF HIS HAND)

You know how I was punished?. . . well, alright. I wasnt since I didnt misbehave ever.

But you know how my SISTER! Was puinished? They cut off the internet for a while and took her phone and didnt let her see her friends. No contact to friends for a couple of days is a really good, unharmful. Punishment.

Ramzal:
Rights should be either taken away or made more strict when abused by an individual. When someone boycotts someone's funeral, they should be sued for disturbing the peace and harassment, when someone unloads an entire clip into a computer for the sake of being angry they should lose their right to use a firearm due to displaying little to no discipline with the tool.

Edit: Besides, the law states that American's have the right to bare arms. Not to discharge them under any circumstance.

The right to bear arms against an unacceptable government. Other words we reserve the right to overthrow our government if we see fit. People alway forget that last part.

Eggs!

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's so kids can't somehow swallow the giant toy in the middle of it mid-snack.

No.. I don't get it either.

Yes i totally hate kids because i don't think it's wrong for a parent to punish his child after she made a mockery of him on the net. Oh the atrocity! As far as i know there was no abuse here, just a piece of her own cake. He destroyed a laptop he most likely paid for and than proceeded to put his angry rant on her facebook (which is basically what she did). This isn't a parent beating his child up for no good reason.

And while yes there may have been some bad parenting along the lines it's not always that easy. The social environment has a huge impact on teenagers and her acting like a spoiled kid may just originate from that and not the parenting.

Whatever lesson there was to be gained here is lost in the method this brain-dead hick decided to use. I'm properly going to cop some flack here but if you support blatantly destroying something of significant worth to try and teach your child "a lesson" then you are a bleeding idiot.

Not saying there was not a problem that needed solving, just that the method used here is easily the worst I've heard of in living memory
