In the past generations, kids were disciplined with the belt, a tiny tree branch (I myself had to go grab one and bring it to my dad so he can hit me with it) and stuff like that. No matter what country you lived in, 30-40 years ago, the same disciplines were used pretty much everywhere. And as far as I am concerned, I consider myself very normal, I was not a spoiled little kid, I learned the sense of responsibilities, I did not turn into a violent psychopath or whatever the “professionals” say these days how beating a kid will turn him into a violent person himself or whatever. My parents, grandparents, all the people I know, were raised with the same values and disciplines.
Today, kids have more rights than anyone else. They have everything they wish. Mom and dad pay for everything, you don’t have to worry about anything, just the minimum responsibilities. That is the reason why they are spoiled. Today, they have “new ways” of disciplining kids which, if we take a look at our present society, “do wonders”. You can’t yell at him, he threatens to go and talk to the police, corporal punishment (not talking about torture here or anything extreme) is not even worth thinking about. How the hell are you supposed to discipline your kid, put him back on the right track if he knows that nothing bad can happen to him if he does something bad? If police would not exist, imagine the criminals, imagine how people would drive on the streets. Same applies for the family. Someone has to be the authority that put a certain order in everyday life, otherwise we are no better than monkeys.
Kids have everything they want today, all the technology, and they are still not happy. Back in the time, we were happy if parents brought us a chocolate bar on their way back from work.
I remember back then we had to get up when the class teacher would enter the class room and say Good day, and wait for him to tell us that we can sit back. Girls, already at the age of 15-16 knew how to cook, wash dishes, do the laundry, name it. Today, all they care is how good looking they are on their Facebook pictures, who will comment it, how many “friends’ they got on their lists, etc. Where does that type of life lead?
Don’t get me wrong, I know some parents do a good job teaching them good values and their kids are not like that, but some kids are, regardless of the parents. Some kids turn out being just like this little girl, no matter how good or bad her parents taught her. I wish more Americans were like this guy. Shooting with a pistol is a little extreme, but he just had to take it out, which is understandable. She will thank him when she gets older, once she is smart enough to understand that all her parents wanted for her is good things.
Sorry for bad English though, not my 1st language :0
P.s. No need to comment on how long my post is.
Completely agree with you. Kids these days are so spoiled and rotten. Makes me sick.
Amen. I know I was a brat when I was 15. I know that you won’t hear that a lot from 18 year olds like me. But I had to go through a lot to realize that.
I had to do the same up until my ma divorced my dad
I find that ofencive. I am not spoiled, nor will I ever be. SO SHUT UP OF I’LL PUT A BULLET THROUGH YOUR COMPUTER.
It’s all this bullshit worrying about self esteem- not keeping score in sports so their precious little egos don’t get hurt and giving everyone a trophy. Kids grow up with a sense of entitlement and no sense of personal responsibility. They think everything should be given to them regardless of their actions.
Payback’s a bitch x-]
A little extreme on the PC, though. Those thing always have a use, somewhere, sometime.
humanity got 15000 years old without a fucking laptop
I strongly believe that he beats her.
you’re an idiot
think you’re dad didn’t beat you enough…
This guy is a psyco. I do believe in giving kids a good whack once in awhile. Heck I smack my son when he deserves it and that’s rare. But this guy for one can’t even get the details of his own story strait. Going to college while in high school, working two jobs and a volunteer fireman!?!? I call bullshit on that one. Sorry. I think this one is fake.
Why is he a psycho? Because he gets backstabbed by his little spoiled daughter after giving her the world, roof over head, hot meals, paying for school, paying for her gagdets. And this is what he gets in return? Nothing wrong here. The fact that he used a gun on a laptop would not be any different than if he just smashed it on the ground, result would be the same. You missed the point of the message, who cares if his life story true or not. Anyways, everyone knows that kids used to work harder in past generations. Kids did chores, helped all around the house, had less technological gagdets that kids nowadays have, shit they still had tons of fun. this generation benefits from everything, they got cable, internet, console games, drivers license (which back then was not accessible as much to teens, same goes for the cars), their parents ask them a minimum of cooperation, they still are unhappy, find something to shittalk about, rebel against things that are not even opressing them in the first place, they try to be popular, spend time on facebook and similar timewasting stupidities, let aside school works, and so on and so forth, I could go on like this forever. Don’t get me wrong, I am refering to a majority here, exceptions exist everywhere. It is the image our society gives us everywhere, on TV, Internet, streets, name it.
totally agree with beEZ. this man is not a psyco. and yea beleave it or not people didnt sit on their asses all day back in the day.
I had 2 jobs, volunteered with the fire service, lived on my own, went to high school, and took college courses. I also graduated in 05. its just how I was raised. It’s doable when you have to do it. I didn’t have ideal living conditions then and I HAD to do it.
now I imagine the expression on that girl ya sayin’ pardner
btw, that is a real man attitude, practically killing what he spent
Yep, it’s called a matter of principle. People taking this guy for stupid because he shot the laptop (as a waste of money), obviously don’t have a clue of what a principle is.
no but the idiot is trying to make her pay him back for his temper tantrum,… honestly id beat him up just because i don’t like his attitude, that’s not being a parent that’s being an asshole, just take the damn thing away and act like an adult
Alex you are 15 aren’t you? Because if you were an adult you would just shut the fuck up.
I think he has a stuttering problem -___-
he’s just pissed…extremely pissed.
Parenting you’re doing it right.
Come on. She’s 16 years old. She’s disrespectful. No doubt! But children are supposed to be annoying as hell in that age. Even 5000 years ago people bitched about how the youth of today didn’t have any respect.
And I read some of your comments …. smacking your children? Are you nuts? Would you hit your friends if they misbehaved? Would you hit your wife or husband? How do you explain to your kids that it’s ok for you to hit them but not ok for them to hit you or any other human being for that matter? It’s like telling them not to start smoking with a cigaret in your mouth.
If you smack your kids it’s because you have no clue how to deal with them verbally. That’s your responsibility as a parent! Deal with it!
BTW I live in Denmark, Scandinavia. In my country it’s illegal to smack your children. Your can go to jail for it.
Congrats. I’m glad you don’t live in America. If you did, you would be one of the many “modern” parents who raise these hellraising children. Granted, I do understand that a lack of spanking is not the sole reason for a misbehaved child, however, it sure taught me a lot growing up. Now, to clarify, there is a GREAT difference between being abusive to your child, and spanking them. I was spanked with a hand or a belt many times, when I was very young. Trust that I didn’t do those things again. I understood the meaning of “being in trouble”. Grounding me was not an effective method. Why? Because grounding me didn’t do any good when I went to school the next day and used all the devices that I was told not to. It didn’t do any good when I had the chance to talk to and see my friends. Being grounded meant nothing. Getting a few good whacks on the backside left an impression. It was never done out of line, and I was always told prior to it happening that getting spanked was going to be the consequence. However, for those hard headed moments, I still did it and dealt with how the situation played out. My mother did not yell and curse at me while doing this, she cried. It showed me that the action was not being done out of anger, it was being done because I was given the opportunity, and I continued to misbehave. My mother was VERY good at communicating with me and I thank her every time that the topic comes up that she spanked me. & I’m sorry, but smacking asses is a common thing. Including your friends and ESPECIALLY your husband.
How do you explain to your kids that it’s ok for you to hit them but not ok for them to hit you
Answer: Parents educate kids not the other way, even kids at the age of 2 know that
If you smack your kids it’s because you have no clue how to deal with them verbally.
Answer: If someone smacks his kids it is because the verbal does not work anymore, and they don’t give a shit about what you say. Yep, there are kids like that if you did not know.
In my country it’s illegal to smack your children.
Answer: your parents and grand parents were smacked, does that make them bad persons today? are they violent? are they less responsible than kids of this generation? I doubt it. It is because kids know that you can go to jail if you punish them, that they take advantage of it. The government is not doing a service to the kids if you want to know. In some cases yes, where there is child abuse, but in terms of normal discipline it should not be applied. They know they can climb on your head and literally shit on it, and you won’t be able to do shit, and if you do YOU get punished, what a society. It is of people like you, mixed with problematic tendencies kids that today we don’t respect the elders, teachers are disrespected because they cannot punish kids anymore as well, no respect for authority since they don’t respect the first authority that is the parents. Ask your grand parents about it they will tell you that nothing beats the good old ass whooping.
oh, and you cannot compare your wife and friends with your kids, they are not under your responsibility, they are grown men/women, on the contrary your are responsible to raise your kid and make him a normal person, you are mixing up apples and oranges
hey dude,respect!!!what was here re-actions like must ave been wiked!!!!!
I can only agree with him on the reaction and yes, it is a matter of principle. I had a step daughter in a past relationship and she stole and did anything to circumvent whatever basic rules there were and when she was caught via close circuit cameras she even then blamed anyone but herself.
And the excuse that people get in with the wrong crowd might be a good one, but at the end of the day parents are still parents. I had my run ins with my old folks, too, at that age, but there was always a fundamental respect towards adults when I was younger (and I was born in the 70s), and we certainly wouldn’t have done something like publicly going against our parents.
I would have glady done what this guy did and I bet putting those rounds through the laptop felt good. And I also think it’s good that he did destroy it, because otherwise she would have not given up asking for it. Ever.
Kudos is what I say. Kids need to be put into their place the way it really hurts. Not by physical violence or by constantly shouting at them, but how this guy did it; by publically humiliating them in front of their peers making them look like a whiny bitch instead of tough.
Now that is what I call some great parenting! Wish he uploads a follow up video.
Kids are very disrespectful these days yet expect adults to respect them for being the spoilt brats they are! We’ve grown an entire generation who are narcissistic and believe everything should be given to them on a plate.
Beat your kids people, just look at how society is where kids have more rights than adults, it’s chaotic. Kids dont fear adults, their parents or even the police; they know the justice system will just let them off (unless you are in the USA and are black, cos africans are still slaves, society pushed them to commit crimes to survive and when they are arrested they are forced to work in prisons so the USA can compete with China).
But back to parenting, do some you lazy “parents”!
this guy is a great father.
wish there was more parents like him
Great parenting!! i live in Mexico and my respect for a father like that, but really? was it really neccesary to use a GUN for that?? i mean do all americans have a gun and use it for the fun?? other than that, great job from the father!!
well…better for the fun than for the use that is given to thenm in Mexico.
GOOD MAN , DID A GOOD THING , KIDS ARE STUPID THESE DAYS , WEAK PHYSICALLY BUT STRONG ON ‘MOUTH OFF”
I FOR ONE SUPPORT THIS MAN
i wish i could be as srrong as him, my kids dominate me
Step up to it, don’t let them do that. Your the adult, you have the power. Why waste time, if they are failures when they grow up your gonna do nothing but blame yourself for that. Your kids need a healthy respect for their elders.
so lemme see if I have this right:
The Dad is angry at daughter for pissing and moaning on the internet about her “chores.”
He creates a video and….
POSTS IT ON THE INTERNET to show her how wrong she is.
And he is subsequently lauded for his “amazing parenting skills.”
I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
I call this fair exchange.
What was he supposed to do in your opinion? She was already grounded for a similar reason. She obviously did not learn. Maybe she needs some good smack to learn, at least I learned that way when I deserved it. Humiliating her in front of her friends is a good way to bring the stupid kid down to earth. Now she cant bitch about her family anymore because all her friends saw this video and know she made stuff up to look cool\rebellious.
What you are trying to prove is that making a video as a response to her video won’t teach her that it was a bad thing since daddy did it too. Same thing like when ppl say dont beat your kids, he will grow up and become a wife beater or whatever else. Hell if it was that way, we would all be violent dangerous psychopaths since our ancestors were all raised that way. Ironically, they are the ones tho who still hold this society straight, because the next generation brings few hopes.
Our prisons are full of people with fathers like this! He’s a moron, and should be arrested for violating her right to freedom of expression. He seems to think he owns her. He doesn’t.
As long as you live under your parents roof, you are a 15 year old kid and still in high school, as long as you don’t pay for shit and at the same time get everything, and as long as his parents are responsible legally for him, the kid’s freedom of speech consists of doing what he is told to and saying “Yes sir!”. You are trying to take the constitutional rights where it does not belong. It is like saying FUCK YOU POLICE to a policeman in the street continuously and hoping he does not arrest you because you have the freedom of speech, Please! Not to mention that in this video, freedom of speech was full of crap and lies against someone who really cares about her (her family). And it is because prisons are full with people like this that kids do whatever the hell they want. I for one wish there was more fathers like this one.
If she is not happy, she can always grab “her” things and GTFO, if she thinks it would be nicer to live somewhere else where SHE would have to WORK and PAY for all her crap, and that someone else would care as much about her as her parents did. Stupid kids don’t realize how lucky they are.
Prisons are full of fathers who have molested or raped (your preference) their daughters. NOT fathers who DISCIPLINE their daughters. You may wanna check your logic there. She is fifteen, and you have no rights until you are 18. And technically, the PC may have been hers, but who was it that bought it, and who was it that got the PC upgraded? Check your logic please.
Who went and pissed off Forrest Gump?
Well obviously his daughter did dumb ass, that’s what the whole 8 minutes of the video was about…..
My mother spanked me, one time I dangled my little sister over a cliff when I was five, and my brother who was four, held her other hand, that was the worst spanking of my life and ya know something? I deserved every second of it. Parents need to stop coddling their kids, and law enforcement needs to stop seeing abuse where there is none. Chances are pretty good that man could get in trouble for doing that if someone really wanted to press charges. Fortunately he has enough money for a lawyer. How you might ask? The child is 15, and thus what belongs to her is hers; if someone decided to press suit against him for her they would have to wait until she was 18, but it could be done as that laptop was a “gift” and what is a gift is that person’s property. Believe it or not children can get whatever they want, parents willing to give them or not.
Her right to “freedom of expression??!?”
She is a child who’s life has been provided for and has the nerve to disrespect her parents and lie on a public forum? Kids don’t post stuff on Facebook to keep secret…that’s what diaries are for. And kids don’t post stuff on Facebook to challenge parental authority…that’s what face-to-face talks are for.
Was it excessive to shoot her laptop? I dunno…I don’t own a handgun so it seems excessive to me. But, even by the shake in his voice, you can tell that the guy is F’ING LIVID! If my daughter ever did something like that when she was 15, I may have reacted the same way.
Allowing a teenager to express her individuality is one thing. Allowing her to tell the world that she’s an oppressed slave of her parents in an open forum is outright disrespect and childish entitlement.
I thought it was a funny video.
you go Dad you did the right thing, i hope she gets the punishment she deserves, she must learn to appreciate the life that she as,,,,, good job Dad she will be just fine,,,,,
totally fake. I’m in IT and I would NEVER destroy a laptop, especially one I claim to have “upgraded” (psst you can’t upgrade laptops). Funny how he said software was the upgrade, I kinda doubt there is something worth 130 bucks on his daughter’s laptop that isn’t on his own machine. This is a parent that is incompetent at raising kids, how do I know, my wife and I babysit for children this unruly, but we can ALWAYS get them to do what they don’t want to and with a smile cause we know how to make them feel like adults doing adult things.
A bragger and obviously a small dick with his gun talk, guaranteed that is a broken laptop he just shot.
WTF IT person guy are you? You can upgrade a laptop mamory, or HDD. You so full of shit.
Please, for the love of God check your logic. You seem to know nothing about computers much less parenting. -_-
lol stfu ding
Respect to this dude, I guess no matter how good the parent are and try to teach their child the right things it doesn’t necessarily work out. I believe that its harsh to see your child write something like that about you when you try to do everything that he would have the best life possible, and when you actually see that…that is the moment you snap and realize that you have been too soft on him/her all this long.
Once again respect to this guy and more parents should be like these since there are too many retards in this world already.
the part with the cleaning lady , BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO all my respect for fathers like this man
That laptop got AlCapwned
Ungrateful little kids nowadays, I admit i’m only 14 but I am disicplined and I respect my parents and other people who help me out through my life. Before I was a gaming nerd who never went out with my friends, and I used to not bothyer about school, until one day my mother turned around and said to me ‘Listen Kurt I know you won’t want to, but you need to get some work done, and go out some more’ Then after tat point I realised what my mother meant, and today I do an hour’s work of revision a night and on the weekends. I don’t have any little comebacks. I just do it because my Mother is trying to help me. And I did it with a smile on my face. Today I’m 14 years of age and I have already passed to GCSE’s with a C-grade. You won’t know how much you need your parents to help you and discilpine you untill they’re gone, so kids out there, you neec to respect your parents and listen to what they say. I do, and I did it with a smile on my face and you kids out there had better aswell. You can change your ways instead of being ignorant little shits. So do it now !
Love this, finally a real man to step up and take control of out of control brats. How rude his daughter was on a public forum to her family. Poor thing, has to make a bed and bring a cup of coffee.Good for him. Tired of soft parents who let their kids run the house or run wild in public. This guy is the man.
Lol this dad is awesome! xD
WOW! this man is a WONDERFUL father! as long as that kid eats his food, uses his electricity, water, heat, he buys her clothes and puts a roof over her head, she needs to respect and obey her dad. he gives her chores to do, HE WORKS, HE makes the money. he buys her things that she wants and she has the balls to post that trash?? nope..i think he rocks and i wish more parents would grow a pair and show their kids that PARENTS are the boss. you cant put kids on the same level as you. she goes to school and does her ‘chores’, i think he should make a follow up video…id watch it lol. and as for the gun thing, i would have done the same thing. Good job! total parenting win!
To all the people that didnt agree with this guy’s methods: I will be more than happy when I become a cop, to throw your future punk ass grown up children in jail for being the brats with no respect, morals, and/or human decency that you raised them to be. Then lets see if any of your so called “loving” children, come to your funeral, or even remember any of your lame parenting skills after your dead and gone. This guy is simply trying to teach his daughter not only respect for elders, but self discipline as well. So then maybe after he is dead and gone, she can hold her head up high and be proud that she had a parent that actually wanted to be somebody, instead of having a pansy ass parent like some of you are or will be…..good day
hi im a 14 yr old girl that has to do all those chores and then some and i take care of a farm and i watch three toddlers and i don’t ever complain oh and imm searching for a job to better help my family and buy things that i want that girl had no respect if i ever did that i can not even come to comprehend what would happen to me
