She openly disrespected and insulted the people who cared for her and raised her, and she is too lazy to do simple chores. As an IT student, I think he should've kept the laptop, rather than shooting it, and that was a waste of money. However, he has reason to be angry at her. Yes, freedom of speech is one of the main points in the U.S. Constitution, but she isn't getting arrested for a crime, she's being punished for embarrassing and insulting the people who care for her and love her the most.

I understand that, and I think he should've tried talking to her, but maybe he did multiple times before, to no avail. She could've told her friends in person if she felt the need to tell someone, not post it where her IT-experienced father could find it. I think what he did was the right thing; maybe she wouldn't listen to reason, so he had to result to shooting the laptop to get her attention. All I'm saying is that it must've been more serious than what he explained, there had to be more to the story; an IT professional would not just blindly shoot a laptop for one small incident.

While I can't say that I've gone through something similar, I can say that I haven't had to. My parents see everything I post on Facebook, they comment, and they question me if they think something is suspicious. I don't have to freak out on Facebook because I respect and behave around my parents. I know that if I did go through something like this, having my dad shoot my laptop would shock me into stopping the disrespect. None of this would've happened if she would've been respectful and kept her insulting status off of Facebook. The father reacted to the daughter's misbehavior, so I don't see any problem here. He is the parent. He makes the rules.

I realize that, but not all kids listen to reason, and not all kids react well to any parenting. My parents never beat me or did anything harsh, I just knew that certain things shouldn't be done or said. Kids need to learn respect somehow, and it seems to me like this man's daughter was not responding to a more peaceful type of parenting. I see your point, and wholeheartedly agree with it, but I'm also looking at this from a parent's point of view. As you said, kids aren't just respectful; the parents need to teach the kids respect. But, you also have to realize that everyone is different and everyone reacts differently to certain stimuli. Not every parenting situation can be solved immediately by talking it out. Some kids are too immature or rebellious to even consider liking their parents, and if the parents just sit back, it only gets worse.

And while that is a possibility, it can really go either way. While I do disagree with quite a bit of what you are saying, this debate really isn't going anywhere. We clearly have two separate ideas of how parenting should work, and while neither are necessarily wrong, we aren't bettering ourselves by arguing about it.

Well I'm glad that if we can agree on something, it's to stop the futile arguments. :)
