scottydoesntknow: tin_man: Reading that, whichever parent it may have been written by, it doesn't take long to figure out where the child's shiatty attitude comes from.

Yea, everyone kinda comes off as douchebags in the story.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great parental move, but man they all sound biatchy.


No. They sound fed up over the entitled, slutty, lying antics of their typical teenage daughter. Appropos, I believe.

Yeah, I totally feel sorry for the Dad.
 
2013-09-20 01:45:48 PM

Chinchillazilla: cgraves67: Following through with your punishment is good parenting, but there's no need for public disclosure of your child's bad behavior. Now everyone knows she is easy for "older guys". Good job on that one.

Ew, you're right.


I picked up on that right away. Working on tracking down her name and address as we speak.

Dancin_In_Anson: tin_man: it doesn't take long to figure out where the child's shiatty attitude comes from.

Most teenage kids (and I'm going to assume these fine specimens are in the 13-14 year old range) have shiatty, self absorbed attitudes by default regardless of how good their parenting has been.


A lot of kids can get like this just from absorbing it from one shiatty friend. They follow the one asshole kid's lead in an attempt to impress them because that one kid plays mind games on the rest. You get a kid with a some sociopathic tendencies and it won't matter how good a job the parents are doing, the kid only sees "How much can I get out of them? How far can I push them? I can hurt them emotionally but I don't feel anything when they try to guilt or shame me into behaving. Any punishment will be met with more extreme misbehaviour and I will make their lives miserable.Therefore, I have all the power."

SuperNinjaToad: dahmers love zombie: My kid tried something like that, I'd do the same goddamn thing.  I wouldn't have gotten all self-righteous in the description, but you can bet your bottom dollar that behavior like that would get the kid's ticket sold in a New York minute.  She'd also find out that her cell phone didn't work and that her Facebook password had been changed.

And Sprint Family Locator is a great, great tool.  Even if I only ended up ever using it to find lost/stolen phones.  The knowledge that I had it was enough to keep 'em where they were supposed to be.

hate to break it to ya pops but odds are your kid is smarter than you or at least more tech savvy.. probably has duplicate or clone FB accounts only her friends know about and her friends probably extra phone that she'll borrow and clone the SIM card etc,


Yes - thirteen year olds have extra phones and cloned SIM cards.  Seems totally plausible.

That's where you screwed up.  You should have started singing at her.

I know your initial instinct is to complain, and sometimes it's overwhelming to overcome.  When she argues and starts telling you why the band is awesome and that you don't get it, you can start agreeing.  Then become obsessed.  Wear the t-shirt when her freinds come over and make sure you get the new album in iTunes before she wakes up that day.  Hell, wake her up for breakfast blasting the new single in an iHome.

Not trying to be a smart-ass, honestly curious.  Is your child's cell phone so important that it can't be ditched at opportune times?

This letter indicates that the mother and father have done an absolute shiat job raising their kid by their own standards, and have no idea how to properly mitigate their mistakes.

So public slut-shaming it is.  Surely this won't have any disasterous consequences.

I predict pregnant before college.  Probably by a guy who's in their grade, since the fact that it was an "older guy" was a bigger hang up than "you're sleeping around".

Basically, fark this idiot mother right in her puckered asshole.

NightSteel: Oh, okay, AUS.. wonder if it's any different there?

Also, looked at the auction.. $12K (AUS) for 4 concert tickets that don't seem to be particularly prime seats? Right now, AUS $ are worth slightly more than US $. I'm betting the kiddies are bidding up the auction to ensure the tickets don't sell in time.


So you think that if the tickets don't sell in time, the parents will just let the kids go to the concert?

/ are you one of the kids?

Other Direction confused by all the Hip-Hop-La.

If it were the U.S., there would be a 50 percent chance the daughter would sue. The judge would rule that the parents had to buy 4 tickets to whatever she wanted per year.  And the father would be ordered to dress like One Direction for a year.

ManateeGag: the animated gif is unnecessary, but this line is great: Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived


Mom's been there, done that, got the daughter to prove it. Slut is a learned behaviour, taught from generation to generation by example.

.....And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!!

This will not be awkward at the next school/social event.  Not even the least little bit.

stuffy: Tickets to a Boy Band? Nothing of value was lost.


The boy band may not be of any value but, I can assure you, tickets to see said boy bad are very valuable, For my daughters birthday we got 4 tickets (we got lucky and got them about a minute after they went on sell) to see 1D (that's how the cool kids write the name I'm told) in Dallas. We paid about $300 for the tickets and fees. We gave her the choice, take 2 friends, or sell the extra tickets and use the money to buy an iPad. We sold the two tickets for $800. She got an iPad and we ended up not paying a penny for the tickets.

It took me until I was 17 to figure out that when my parents wanted to know where I was going, it was out of concern, not control.  if only they had voiced that.   Would have saved them those three years of hell after I got my first period and started mood swinging.

My daughter became friends with another girl in pre-school and they participated in various activities together... dance, etc. After 5 years or so, I really started noticing problems. After sleep overs, my daughter's attitude would be awful and every time that kid came to my house they would always end up getting into some stupid fight over something. My daughter played great with just about every other kid she would have over. I've had enough and while we haven't just come outright and told my daughter she can't see that other kid anymore, we've avoided seeing them pretty well for quite a while now (they live about 20 minutes away and she goes to a different school, so that helps).  Anyway, the point is that I agree with you. I saw this other girl have a bad influence on my daughter and I wanted to nip that shiat in the bud while she was still young (she turns 11 tomorrow).

That is the sort of punishment people imagine doing when they don't have kids....the 'if it were my kid (not that i have any)i would totally do that!'...not a real response that a parent should actually do. 

But then, idiots all the way down.
 
2013-09-20 01:57:41 PM
Wow, I am betting that this child won't rebel at all!  Mom admitting she did the same thing, dissing her daughter's fatherless friends (not the kid's fault, it's the Mom and Dad's fault). I have a 15 year old daughter going to a concert this weekend.  Luckily the tickets were under $30.00.   She knows I would have sold that ticket had she screwed up, but I would not have been a screeching biatch about it and publicly humiliated her.  That just raises tensions in the house, when there are so many already.

gonzoduke: The bidding is up to Au$16,300. Either the daughter and her friends are trolling the parents or thems some crazy O.D. fans


Classic revenge would be if the daughter bids it up, steals their debit card and uses it to make the transaction. If their paypal is linked to a credit card, that potentially could result in some hefty overdraft fees.

2013-09-20 01:58:25 PM
Usually with stuff like this I'd prefer a charity giveaway, including making the kid physically hand the desired object over. But that's tough to do with concert tickets, so eBay will do.

The ranting and raving is rather much, though. "These tickets were purchased for our daughter's birthday, and are being sold as a lesson to her" would be more than enough to get the message across. There's no need to make the whole lecture public, and it wasn't even a very good lecture.

Who knows. If I had children, and could have afforded to buy the tickets. I could certainly afford to make a point by setting the buy it now at 1 dollar, then showing the history to the daughter after it was over to prove I'd sold them.
