He lives in the dream world with good parenting.
I was raised by parents who acted similarly to that. Worked fine on me.
Actually, I thought my suggested course of action was actually a hell of lot more realistic and reasonable than Yosemite Sam's. When you think about it, you can't really control your kids. All you can do as a parent is to show them the best way and hope that they follow. I knew of a situation where a parent kept doing this heavy-handed nonsense and all it did was made his kids go the wrong way just out of spite. I think this daughter would respond a lot more to kindness than to how he's doing it now.
