Gotta hand it to this guy! Here, Tommy Jordan teaches you about Facebook Parenting: For the Troubled Teen. He's a father to his 15-year old daughter who is going through her rebellious stage in life. I totally agree with how he handled his tough situation of trying to educate and punish his daughter. Watch this 9-minute video and how he put 6-bullets into his daughter's laptop!
If you think this father is cool, you can check out and follow his original Facebook thread here: http://www.facebook.com/tommyjordaniii/posts/299559803434210
Quick brief on the video:
My daughter thought it would be funny/rebellious/cool to post on her Facebook wall just how upset she was and how unfair her life here is; how we work her too hard with chores, never pay her for chores, and just in general make her life difficult.
She chose to share this with the entire world on Facebook and block her parent's from seeing it. Well, umm... she failed. As of the end of this video, she won't have to worry anymore about posting inappropriate things on Facebook...
Maybe a few kids can take something away from this... If you're so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you're deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.
Would you agree with his method of punishing? Common sense has it that if your father bought you a laptop, he can bloody well take it and do with it as he please. Yay or Nay? There are times when teens forget how much their parents are doing to feed and send them to school, in the hopes that their kids would grow up and be successful in life.
House chores may be tiresome but heck, I have come to realize why it is important and how much care should be put into treating furniture and home appliances as in a recent post I wrote, "WHEN STRANGERS ENTER YOUR HOME & DRIVE YOU NUTS!"
I was once a rebel. Trust me. I, too can't imagine how did my mum ever managed to put with me. I have always wanted things done my way. Up til now, I suppose... I am still doing things my way. Especially, my being in KL alone. =P The rebel wants to try to stand up on her own two feet! Hehe! BUT, whenever I do go back home, I now have a deeper sense of appreciation for my parents, family and home.
All the things that used to bug me suddenly becomes a nostalgic memory. As my siblings and I are all grown up now, we laugh about all the silly things we used to do and how stupid it all seems now.
I guess what I'm trying to say is....
CHERISH YOUR PARENTS,
LOVE YOUR FAMILY,
RESPECT THEM &
