The way parents discipline their kids now: with reactionary YouTube videos titled “Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen” filled with guns and hollow-point bullets and shot-up laptops posted to their child’s Facebook wall. That’s how some rootin’-tootin’ dude on Facebook named Tommy Jordan does it anyway (I’ve taken the liberty to kick off a “Crazy Cowboy Dad” meme above). Makes me kind of long for the day when my dad would come home, slide off his belt, and beat the snot out of me with it.
Allow Tommy to explain himself…
Warning: Since this video seems to have gone crazy, I figure I’ll post this notice. I’m going to read a letter my 15 year old daughter wrote. There ARE some curse words in it. None of them are incredibly bad, but they are definitely things a little kid shouldn’t hear… not to mention things MY KID shouldn’t say!
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.
Now please take a few minutes to allow a jackass to demonstrate how to not discipline your children. YEEHAW!
All that’s missing is a voiceover at the end saying, “I’m Rick Perry and I approve this message.”
(Thanks for the tip, Mark!)
