Why Satisfying Is Not Often Smart|
First of all, if we put bullets through every computer used to post whiny, self-absorbed rants to social networks, we'd run out of computers faster than China could build new ones.
Oh, amen! I'm 41 and I *still* post whiny, self-absorbed rants, so I tend to give a kid that age the benefit of the doubt. I can understand the dad getting mad, but he really overreacted. And I agree she should have her privacy. If I was a parent, I would only violate it if it was an extreme situation in which I was terrified about my child's safety.
I have to wonder if that guy has really taken time to think about how much control he actually has over his child or to life in general. Like others have said, I think he has control issues. I think if he gives her love and talks to her about why he wants her to behave a certain, sooner or later, she will straighten up. Her growing up and maturing will take care of her behavioral issues. Him being too angry and controlling is what might actually cause her to go the wrong way by her reacting to him out of spite.
