I was watching the Today show this morning, and they had a segment on a father (Tommy Jordan) who replied to his daughter (Hannah’s) post on Facebook in a very shocking way ‘Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen!’ Wow go Daddy! Apparently the daughter posted some very harsh things on Facebook about the way parents treat her. Thinking that that they wouldn’t see it by blocking them. Oh boy was she wrong! The father is computer saavy, works in IT, so naturally he was going to find it, especially because a few months earlier she had done the exact same thing. It’s an 8 minute video the father made in reply to his daughters post on facebook, here is the video, see for yourself.
The response from teens is astronomical, agreeing with what the father had done, not to mention how many parents agree with what he did. Yeah it’s SHOCKING but it’s sends a message I believe she won’t ever forget, and when she is older, and mature, she is going to recall what happened that day. I completely agree with what he did. I’m sure he had tried many times, different ways, but nothing ever worked. I’d rather see him do that to her computer than to do it to her.
Some may say that ‘next time’ he’ll be putting bullets through her head, I believe that to be exaggerated, if that was the case, there would of already been signs of abuse in the home, and I really doubt there are. It’s a father that needed to send a message to his daughter in the same way she tried to send to him (excluding bullets) a message via Facebook. There are those that don’t agree with what he did, but I agree with what he did, and that is my opinion.
This video has gotten over 25 million hits, mine being one of them. I’ve listened to a lot of replies of teens agreeing with what the father did, agreeing that sure sometimes they dislike their parent’s for different reason, but no way would they disrespect them, the way she did. Basically stating she is ungrateful and spoiled. There are a few young adults I know that when they were teens, acted in a similar way, I hope they see this video, and let it be a reminder of the way they acted when they were that age. It needs to open up their eyes, and learn to be grateful for what they had/have in thier lives. And also a reminder that parent’s aren’t perfect.
In further viewing the replies to Jordan’s video, I’ve seen animated versions, and a spoof that just made me laugh, I don’t want to make light of the subject, but I did want to share this video with you, because I thought it was entertaining, and we all love to be entertained right? Enjoy.
