That was great. So many teenagers act like babies in this country and have absolutely no want to even begin to realize what brats they truly are. And who cares if this just drives the kid away. When she finally matures and grows up and becomes an adult, that's when she`ll understand her parents` frustrations and how embarassing her own behavior was. That goes for all you kiddies out there.

@Tomqil-
A. Not all criminals are rational human beings.
B. Parental punishment =\= criminal punishment. The goal of parental punishment is to raise the best child that you can, the goal of criminal punishment is the maximize the good of society. The state does not have the resources to reform all criminals in society, and does not attempt to do so. The state is not your parent. Instead, it isolates those deemed too volatile.
However, a child is a different matter. Even if your kid was a delinquent, I assume you'd do all you could to reform him/her because... Well... You`re the parent. It`s your moral responsibility.

ahh poo. as a 19yr old girl not far past that age, i can quite confidently say that this whole show will do nothing more than drive his daughter away from him. what 15yr old doesn't moan about their parents/ try to be popular on facebook? that dad is a complete drating loonatic, i actually feel sorry for the girl.

@lyonartime - By that logic if someone committed a crime they shouldn't be punished because they need to understand they did wrong on their own. Actions need consequences.

She got in trouble for similar actions before so she was well aware what she was doing was wrong. She is 15 and therefore should be able to grasp a simple concept like not doing something you previously got in trouble for. The father told her her punishment would be worse if she did it again, but being the brat she is, she did it anyway. She deserves what happened.

(damn character limits)

My point being, as sad as it may be, we cannot force people to willfully change their actions. The statement is a contradiction on its face. I wish I could teach children exactly how the world worked through extreme measures. But I cannot. She's going to have to come to the conclusion independently that she acted like a child, and these types of punishments won`t help that.

So just talk to your kids. Be civil. It`s the best we can do for them.
