Dad uses Facebook to teach daughter a lesson | Chicago - News

Via Jo who blogs at Jo On Food, My Travels And A Scent Of Chocolate came the link to this video. Dad uses Facebook to teach daughter a lesson | Chicago - News: A 15-year-old puts up a Facebook post bashing her parents for making her work too hard, dad reacts by posting a video response to her grievances on her Facebook page.

There's been some controversy over whether the father is a bad parent and over-reacted. I'm not entering into that side of it because I don't know anything about the family or its history but I'm pretty sure his daughter won't forget the sight of her laptop being destroyed in a hurry. And, purely as an aside, it did make me grateful to live in a country where guns are illegal except under very strict guidelines. This man is not threatening anyone with his gun but just the thought of pretty much anyone being able to arm themselves with a 45 and exploding bullets is quite scary.

Edit: There is an update at the bottom of the page where some additional details are filled in including how the girl's post was seen by her parents - and it has nothing to do with her father hacking into her page and everything to do with her posting to a page anyone could read.
