    Wow...the dog did it.. too funny..hasn't petted the dog all day.

    We as children and adults don't seem to realize or care just how much our words hurt others.

    My 4-year-old son has been using a computer since he was 2 and something. For his 4th birthday, I built him his own computer because when he used mom's or dad's, he messed up our desktops and lost our open tabs in the web browser.

    Now that it's HIS computer, his desktop stays nice & neat, he goes to his learning websites or watches kid videos on Netflix, and he's already learned to turn it off before he gets up to do something else (most of the time).

    Sadly, I can see this entire scenario being me in a few years (tomorrow); I actually have played it out inside my head a few dozen times long before this happened. And truth is, the only difference was that I gave the computer to the nearby library "so that it could be used by kids who'd appreciate it".

    And then, of course, will come my daughter.

    I read,
    I watched.

    Congratulations, Tommy J!

    Hopefully she learned something from a lesson she will not forget.

    Where on earth did the daughter get such a bad attitude? Where? Impossible to fathom given the Einstein she's got for an old man.

    He is lucky that it was not a Toughbook, a .45ACP might have bounced off that and have killed him!

    But seriously, I approve of his message to his daughter!

    Not the place for a debate on parenting, I'm sure, but I take it as given that anyone who has to resort to a handgun (and I say this as a hunter and gun owner) to send a message to his teenage daughter has a cretinously crude notion of authority. I suspect he's reaping what he's been sowing. Back to TBs!

    Shouldn't this thread be transferred to the HP subforum?

    I think it's deplorable that this "IT professional" demonstrated such a complete disregard for gun safety. What sort of responsible adult destroys inanimate objects? What sort of responsible parent takes personal offense at the musings of a teenager? What sort of example does it set is you destroy a child's personal property?

    Does anyone want to see children pattern their behavior after this man? Rambling about "respect" while smoking a cigarette, wearing a cowboy hat and shooting holes in an inanimate object? Is this an example of a responsible male adult? Nope.

    I wish his daughter the best of luck. Maybe a child can succeed in life with this sort of upbringing. If she does, it will be on the basis of other adult role models, not this very disturbing and disturbed "father."
