Do you think dad overreacted?

I fail to see the humor.
Dbrad3693 saidI see it
Some kids need an extreme wake up call to get them on the right track
UofMGrad saidAbsolutely an overreaction on the dad's part. She's a freaking teenager she was venting her frustration was it the best way NO but her dad making a video, shooting the laptop, and then posting is way overkill and just shows his immaturity as well to do the same thing. The damage he might cause might not be repairable and I agree will further the rift with his daughter.
I can understand her cleaning up as chores like every child should have. However, seriously making her get coffee for them and work in her (I'm assuming) mom's garden is not right at all. That is her mother's hobby and shouldn't be something the daughter has to do on a daily or weekly basis. Her dad could clean the mud off his boots before entering the house that's just being a lazy douche then making his daughter clean it.
Now that said how much of this is her over-reacting to what they might just have been asking her to do, instead of forcing her, and her throwing a tantrum...there is always two sides to every story.

Yeah his daughter is being ridiculous, and unappreciative, but she was venting out of anger on the internet. I was 15 once, and I wrote things like that all the the time even though I knew they weren't how I really felt. Its just how kids are at that age. They do impulsive things based on pure emotion. And honestly, considering the fact that her father is doing the same exact thing by posting this video, ( and shooting her laptop, wtf?) where do you think she learned to express her anger in elaborate posts on the internet for everyone to see?
Obviously she needs to be punished. But he's only acting out of anger when he shoots her laptop, posts a video on her wall, and says that he's going to ground her for THREE MONTHS. I mean COME ON. Three months? All that is going to do is cause resentment and the entire message behind the punishment is going to be lost behind the punishment itself. She needs to learn that her parents work their asses off to provide for her, so she needs to do her fair share, but punishing her that severely is only going to put a rift between her and her father, and she will be less likely to even listen to him. Its just the way teenagers are.
It seems to me like he was embarrassed that his kid did something like that on the internet, and needed to defend his image, so he's coming down super strict on her, and on facebook right in front of her friends that read the post she wrote.
He's just so over the top.
RoadsterRacer87 saidI find it disturbing. Arguments about wasting a perfectly good laptop aside, this guy is setting a horrible example for his child. Anyone whose parenting methods in any way involve the discharging of firearms doesn't deserve to be a parent.

Your kidding me... what about all those other idiots out there who don't take responsibility for the children they breed ?
At least he stands by his actions, for what he did and for what he's trying to teach his daughter.
Most just push out the child feed it and take no responsibility for it
