    The father is not a dick. If the kids don`t learn and spanking is a big no no these days... then what do you do? Time out is the most ineffective form of punishment ever invented by hippies. I have pawned my sons X-Box and tell him he has 30 days to earn it back through good behavior. No, not a dick... good parenting that doesn`t involve smackin` a brat.

    I don`t see this as good parenting. I`m 100% sure the parents knew the bathtub was being used for beyblading, but the parents probably didn`t think anything of it until the tub was ruined. Then they blame it on the kids, when they could have stopped the kids from using the bathtub in the first place. They do have the stadium thing for beyblades at Toys`R`Us...and I`m pretty sure it cost less than $500.

    You can always find the parents with common sense because they get publicity for inventive punishments. It`s the kids` fault that their bathtub was destroyed, so it should of course lie on them to replace it. They might be just kids, but they need to learn and this is a great way to do it.

    The only problem I see is the picture they humiliatingly posed for.
    Still, it`s not enough to make me upset.
    They are kids, but it`s better than smacking them upside the head or telling them "Hey it`s cool, you`re just a kid so you obviously shouldn`t know when to stop destroying our bathtub."

    This happened to me when I was young. My brother and I stood in a sink to wash our feet, broke it off the wall, and flooded the bathroom. Our parents cleaned out our savings accounts, and made us do chores to "earn" the rest of the money to pay for the remainder of the cost. It sucked, but we didn`t stand in the new sink.

    @ledgehead: That`s great. But think of the scale of the consequence here ;)

    Like most people here I can agree with them being punished (selling/removing the toys), but having them pose for the picture was just degrading.

    That`s not teaching your kid not to do something; that`s taking it too far and making them hate you. They won`t forget that.

    Making the kids pose may seem cruel, but no one here knows what happened to make the parents do that. They may have locked out their parents and destroyed the tub on purpose or cursed at their parents when they had their toys removed. No one knows the scope of the destruction or the circumstances. However, if they just got carried away, as kids do, then this may have been a bit harsh.

    BUT


    What the drat kind of parents have no idea what thier kids are doing for that long? It isn;t like the tub was destroyed in a couple of seconds, the guy is describing some serious damage here. Those little buggers must have been at it for hours and nobody thought to make sure they hadn`t killed a cat or something? pfft.

    Also, there is nothing wrong with the parenting in this video. Sure they might be upset, but they have other toys and need to understand you can`t just destroy something and not have some kind of fallout. My parents did it to me, they also taught me the value of money through harsh lessons and i`m very grateful for that. Now my parents run a business that turns over £30 million a year and I get what I deserve from that: nothing. I am completely financially self sufficient, and its because my parents didn`t give me everything and taught me values that this is t

    3: ...did it to me; they also... Can`t just have a comma there

    Sorry to be nit-picky, but my parents taught me to always value the concept of being grammatically correct when trying to act like a superior douche-bag.

    At least he`s not hitting his kids and he`s actually punishing them. Timeouts don`t work and these kids will make sure to respect their parent`s belongings next time they think of being reckless. My father would have done the same and he`s a great man.

    Parenting with love and logic. (google it) Natural consequences for wrong actions. If you break something of mine, you`re going to find a way to pay me back. I knew a guy that threw away bags full of toys because his boys wouldn`t clean their rooms. He went in their rooms and if it was on the floor, it was in the trash. IIRC, he filled a couple bags worth.

    That father is raising serial killers in the making. When in 20 years they are put in prison and asked why they murdered everybody at the local Toys R` Us they will both reply: "Because when we were kids, our father sold our favorite toys because he was a jackass."

    For cripes sake, set some rules, don`t let them do stupid poo, and when they do, blame yourself for being an inept parent.

    "approxamently" you say?

    Hope your parenting skills are better than your grasp of basic language, dad. But somehow I doubt it.

    I think selling the kid`s toys is only a good punishment if the parents had told the kids on multiple occasions (or even once) to NOT use the bathroom as a beyblade arena. If that was the first time they were doing it and therefore didn`t understand what they were doing, I don`t think it`s fair to the kids. When I was little and I was punished for things I didn`t know I was doing wrong it was upsetting because even my little kid brain was thinking "well if I knew that was bad I wouldn`t have done it and I won`t ever do it again now..no need to be super mad".

    Not a comment, just an observation. Noticed the same phenomenon on other posts on similar subjects.

    The people who tend to side with the authority-figure/dad and proclaim him the epitome of parenthood, kid got all he deserved etc are usually youngsters (13-17 or 18-29) who themselves (many of which) don`t have kids. While the people who tend to side on the "wow, dad was a bit of an asshat there", are mostly older, most of them parents.

    I`m sure there`s a pattern there somewhere. F*cked if I can figure it out though. Maybe someone smarter/more qualified than I can shed some light on why kids joyously whoop the public beheading of other kids, while parents of kids are more mellow.

    Beats me.

    Selling pooty bathtub to replace DESTROYED economy.

    See dad, your generation has pretty much raped any chance your kids had to have a good life, a decent job and an habitable planet. So sell your pooty bathtub now to start paying them back. I`ve got a quote for $500 trillions. There was $254 in your piggy bank, so there`s that.

    @davymid

    Well, I don`t know about a pattern, but I don`t think humiliating your kids online would be considered good parenting.
    Selling their toys is neither right nor wrong. Its called parenting. There is no side because you don`t know the kids or the family so no one here really has any say whatsoever.

    But when you post pictures of your children online along with a back story explaining the fiasco, you`re humiliating your children on a public stage as a form of punishment.. Again, I have no say, but I think that`s bad parenting. It just seems the parent did this in a fit of anger.

    My guess is they regret their decision to post it, as the ebay post is gone. They probably realized it went viral, and will have to live with it. Who knows for sure though, it could have been flagged for harassment and been taken down.

    meh I think the problem is consistency. He spoils them (I never had anything close that that kind of savings or toys) and then he disciplines and humiliates. I believe those kids are going to have a difficult time learning boundaries.

    I think he did a good thing, the taller boy looks old enough to know better, and I guarantee you he won`t do it again!

    Aside from how sad it is that you can punish a child by taking away their toys.... I give the dude kudos! (I mean sad in a "we have become a materialistic vanity focused society" way)

    he didn`t just post this up on the street corner to embarrass them in front of the neighbours, he posted it on the internet for the whole world to see, also as i said before i have no problem with him taking away the kids toys or as he has done sell them. the kids have to learn that there actions have Consequences but to put the pic up as well, that was going to far ,to me that just seemed cruel and unnecessary.

    deceit and zombunny: I hear ya, and I generally agree. But I actually saw these boys first in a thread on 4chan and didn`t click the link because I thought it was going to be all sorts of kiddy porn/gore/horrible death and destruction.

    I was actually relieved when I saw it on here and got to read the actual story. Anyway, the point is, once it`s out there, there it remains... for better or for worse. You should see some of the sh*t people do to photos on b.

    Fleaman1797 must not ever have had to replace a bathtub...or ever played with these things. We`re not talking "a few scratches". Beyblades come with their own arena for a reason. I should know...there`s a set sitting on my living room floor belonging to our room mate. He and my fiance still play with them. Yay for grown men and their toys?

    And, I have to agree with meganmakeart: Sooo full of win. Better than beating the crap out of them, right? Though, I`m sure that if they live in California, CPS there will consider this "child abuse" anyhow.

    I am a "superior douche-bag" because my parents are rich? I get none of their gains yet this makes me a rooster? I am sorry that you feel that way, however it got me thinking...
    Why did you take so much offence to what I said? What drove you mad enough to reply in such a "not an non-nice individual at all" manner? There are a few conclusions. First up, and the most likely, is you saw my post and instead of seeing the message behind it, you read "parents are loaded but im k cos im independent so drat you all". The second conclusion is that you`re parents rich and you get given loads of things by your them but feel angry that you aren`t independent and this is how you express that anger. To be quite honest I think it`s a healthy mixture of the 2, but to be even more honest I couldn`t give a toss, really, about what you think as you are definitely still living at home, wondering if you are going to get a GF / if your gf isn`t sucking

    Although I`m sure the kids probably didn`t mean to destroy the bathtub, it`s still a reasonably fair lesson.
    My teenage sister has a JOB, and when she wrecked my mom`s car, she refused to pay to get it fixed OR to pay for the higher insurance. On top of that, she`s also still allowed to occasionally use the car when she wants.
    So... yeah. I guess rather teach the lesson early than risk ending up with a child like my sister.

    I suppose if they were warned NOT to do this and they still continued then this is a reasonable punishment.
    But $56?? You can find these in Value Village secondhand stores for $2.99.
