Maryrrf BS: Facebk Parenting: for the troubled teen (28) RE: BS: Facebk Parenting: for the troubled teen 12 Feb 12

I thought the Dad's reaction was OTT, but I'll bet he had just reached his limit with what appears to be a very self absorbed teenaged daughter that probably mouthed off and rolled her eyes just one too many times. Her comments were obnoxious and would've had most parents steaming, although it should have been handled in a more mature way. I think a stern, matter of fact talk, taking away the computer that had been provided to her, replacing the fancy cell phone with an extremely basic model for emergencies only, and letting Miss Spoiled Brat know that she could have those things if she got a part time job, saved the money and bought them herself (since she obviously didn't appreciate them when they were provided by her parents) might have been the way to go.
