February 8, 2012. An angry father uploaded this YouTube video and posted it on his daughter's Facebook wall. A few minutes after, it went viral. Watch this video and share your thoughts.
One side of me says "Damn! He killed that laptop with a gun! Eeeeek!"
It's pretty obvious that this father is pissed. You could feel the anger.. and the disappointment he has towards his 15 year old daughter, Hannah. However, this video would only make Hannah more rebellious. This will instill fear, not respect. It would have been better if he just talked to his daughter, both of them attend counseling or something.. and about the laptop, remove and destroy the hard drive, then sell the remaining parts for scraps. Putting myself in Hannah's shoes, maybe I'm just scared to talk to my parents because maybe I know that they wouldn't listen. Therefore I post rants on Facebook for all my friends to read.. I see her point, but this father's move to upload this video on YouTube about the rebellious behavior of his daughter is a bit too much. He "killed" a laptop with a gun, for pete's sake. And worse, it became viral.
I'm only thankful that the laptop got the bullets, and not Hannah. The internet is never the best place to fix family problems.
But the other side of me says "Good job, dad! Serves you right for disrespecting your parents, Hannah."
Hannah sounds so spoiled and rotten. To ask your parents to pay you for doing the household chores, that's crazy. Some teens have it easy. Washing the dishes, doing the laundry, mopping the floor... these only take a few minutes to finish. Why be upset about it? When I was a teenager, I do all that AND MORE. I don't see why she has to think that the whole world's on her shoulders. And having help inside the house, doesn't mean that she's allowed to just slack off. Most kids today are little rebels and they lack respect because physical punishment is prohibited. I'm not saying that a parent should beat her/his kid. It is never good to beat your kids to death. But a little smack once in a while could deliver a strong message. Hannah really sounds like a bratty little rebel. I say, she really got it coming.
We all update our Facebook statuses and we sometimes say we hate this girl, we despise this guy, etc.. because it feels good to get things out of our chests. But to post such ridiculously hateful rant about your parents on Facebook for your peers to see, it was downright disrespectful.
This guy summed it all up. Though he made me laugh at the "Is this guy Chuck Norris? He is the bomb!" line, he did point this out.. "Care for your parents.. and don't write status of them on Facebook." Plus, he has the coolest accent. :p
The Facebook Parenting video received a lot of reactions from people. Different opinions. Different stand. What is yours?
