A friend of mine sent me this video and asked me what I thought. At first I thought I was going to watch a witty adult finding a fun way to discipline their child.
The first thing I noticed was the cigarette. For some reason, I just kept focusing on his cigarette instead of the words.
He starts off in the right direction, but takes a terrible turn for the worse. I've always been seen by my kids as a fairly strict parent, but this is out of control.
She's 15. She's going to rebel. Aren't you glad she was complaining about having to make her bed instead of ranting about taking her drugs away? Put it in perspective.
All teenagers dislike their parents, but they tend to get over it as an adult. If my parent did something like this to me, I would walk out the door at 18 and never look back. It seems to me that he drifted from punishment to revenge.
Facebook is full of chatter - People either LOVE or HATE him.
The only thing I think this video is useful for is showing my teens and asking, "And you think I'm bad?"
