Facebook parenting for troubled teen


General Talk

thank you angel. ive been stewing on that reply myself. if calling a 15 yr old girl 'disgusting' for making a mistake makes you feel good, thats disturbing. we have all been young and dumb and made stupid mistakes. most of us have learned some very hard life lessons by way of those mistakes, at least i can say i have. just because this family may not have a 'warm environment', as you put it, in no way makes them disgusting. (actually you have NO idea what this families home life is like, so even making that assumption is ridiculous.) if you want to disagree with the fathers actions, thats one thing. but attacking the little girl is crossing the line.

like i said. "it all depends on the standards of discipline people are used to being held to."

That's not what I said, I said culture big difference. National identity currency boundaries and culture is not the same thing and yes it does have a lot (culture) to do with it. Wrong is not just plain wrong as you put it is a question of belief and is highly influenced by culture. I am not arguing that what she did is right or wrong or what he did is right or wrong ( like I said not enough info IMO) what I am saying is that how we react to the video (this is what thediscussionis about) is influence by back ground ( how we were raised) and culture is a part of each andeveryone back ground.

Angel Frye said

I don't think this has anything to do with national identity or currency boundaries. Wrong is just plain wrong. So is the reaction sound or over the top?

I don't have a gun but if I was in that guy's shoes I'd have taken a screw driver and taken the thing apart piece by piece right in front of her. We could always use the pieces for art projects. My husband makes custom toys for clients and man can he upcycle!

dreading my bangs??


Introduce Yourself

i went thru the same dilemma. at first i dreaded them. then undid them. then dreaded them again. now i have them undreaded and have decided i like them much better loose. when i want them up and out of the way its easy to just braid them and treat them like another dread.

well said angel. i just showed the video to my 12 yr old daughter. she couldnt believe there were actually people that think his response was wrong in any way. i guess it all depends on the standards of discipline people are used to being held to. do you guys do k12?

Angel Frye said:

If she grows and learns from the experience then in ten or fifteen years she'll look back and cringe in embarrassment and not in anger. We all do stupid stuff as teenagers and young adults. We're meant to push boundaries to figure out where they truly are. But part of growing up is learning to feel remorse for the hell we put our parents through so WE become better parents for it. If we never did some of the idiotic things we did when we were younger we'd be pretty crappy parents and never learn how to say no to our children until it was far, far too late.

honestly i think most of the negative attention its getting is because of the gun at the end. i was raised in the country in oklahoma where guns are a part of everyday life. anyone raised in a similar manner didnt think twice about him shooting up the computer. my dad would have done the exact same thing! would it have scarred me for life? no. would it have made enough of an impact for me to regain some respect for my father? absolutely. i love my dad for every bit of tough love parenting he ever instilled on me. tommy jordan was completely within boundaries by making this video. he has said he had no intention of it going viral like it has. he posted it as a response to HER bratty rant, and to the same audience. he was addressing the topics that she addressed (some of which she lied about) and he defended himself. he had every right to. this little girl learned a hard life lesson, and i guarantee she wont do it again.

firm believer in tea tree oil here. as for now i wash my sons hair with a tea tree shampoo and always add a few drops to my own bs wash. so far so good! 14 yrs. wow. *bows down*

princenoobsauce said:

I had lice once. I got them from a friend of mines little daughter that went to daycare. I got rid of them with tea tree oil on a cotton ball at full strength. I caught them very early so it was easy. It sucks if you wait cause I cant see how you would get all the dead bugs and dirt out. In nearly 14 years it had only happened to me once, and if you use the oil right away you wont have any problems. I think you could pre-treat with a strong teatree soak if you know you are going to be in a high risk area.

there wont be any horse pesticides touching my kid or myself any time soon ;) and i didnt say you couldnt kill them, but removing them is a different story.

Oneness said:

Lice can be controlled very easily even in dreaded hair.

heres where I get yelled at.

When my hair was straight I got the ol hair crickets and couldnt shake em, nix and rid just didnt seem to be effective.While googling some new prescription treatment, I found out in Europe they treat kids with lice with ivermectrin.Ive worked with ivermectrin for years with horses its safe enough(in livestock) to double dose and $5 a tube enough treat 1 person half a dozen times.Ive used it and lice are gone in three days,totally gone after two treatments(about a week)Its an antiparasitic pesticide so you'll lose your organic label but it sure beats rubbin hot sauce on your head if that even works.Now any product can have adverse effects so becareful.and always research any drug before you give it to your kid,especially if some goof on the internet tells you to do it
