Hmmmmmm so many good points :S I don't know which side I'm on now.... I think what we don't know about him is a big factor here,this one video clip doesn't really sum up his whole parenting style,he seemed warm and honest,I didn't feel it was done in a vicious way.He did rant and vent but what he said made sense.Sometimes when your a teenager and you try and have these conversations the heat of the moment makes it hard for both people to get their POV across. The young girl sounded quite bratty,I don't think this means she is spoilt and nasty for all we know they have done a really good job as parents and the teenage years have turned her nasty! I don't see why "public humiliation" is so bad,kids tend to behave very differently at home then in front of other people,my mum always use to threaten me with "What would your teacher say" etc.Its GOOD for children to be aware of how their actions affect their inner circle but also what society will make off them! As for paying a child to do the chores NO WAY,I was brought up in a household where we were all expected to pull our weight and help out,we didn't even get pocket money.In the long wrong it's the right thing to do,the value isn't on the money,the value is contributing to your family. I'm sure this girl got a taste of her own medicine and realised what she had done wrong.I think he doesn't seem like someone who is going to hold a grudge against her for that mistake but move on together.I think she's lucky to have him as a dad.
