Father shoots daughter’s laptop

This post is a little delayed. I somehow missed this story back in February.

This is the story of how a rant about her parents on Facebook cost a disrespectful teen her laptop…

Try as she might, blocking her parents from the post on her profile was not enough.

Watch the video to hear what she posted. Skip to 7:20 of video to see how her father and his .45 responded.  “Facebook parenting”, Tommy Jordan called his actions.

Regardless of how we feel about his reaction, can we blame him for how he felt after reading what his daughter wrote?

Would he have reacted the same way if he came across this in her private diary? I don’t think so.

This is what we need to realize about Facebook — that the things we say and do on Facebook impact every aspect of our lives, psyches and relationships.
