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.

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.

bborchar: The parent is just as if not more childish than the daughter in this post.  I'm all for selling the tickets if the child did something wrong- but not blasting them in such a horrible fashion on the internet.  That comes across as petty and stupid.  I watched a father yesterday pull his 3 year old daughter (who wasn't listening to him immediately) and start scolding her in front of the other kids saying "We're never coming back here.  Take a look around you, it's the last time you'll ever see it!  Are you looking!?"  The girl was sobbing hysterically by that point.  Sick a**hole, she's 3.  That's how this parent is coming off, too.  Just sell them and save the sermon for the daughter.


as a father with a 4 year old, I'm gonna assume you don't have kids or they are out of control

1. by the age of 3 they know how to pretend they don't hear you
2. hysterical crying is the only crying a 3 year old does, being told they can't have 3 cookies only 2 will result in hysterical crying
3. going nuclear is sometimes the only way to get through to them that they do have to listen to dad, especially,
4. if some sanctimonious ass is there condemning the parent, even with only facial expressions, it is enough to empower a 3 year old into thinking they have leverage in the situation and will attempt to use #2 to get their way.

parents who establish a high standard for behaviour consistently get children that meet those standards, parents that let their kids get away with being little shiats because they are only 3, 4, 5 or whatever age result in children that cannot function properly in society.

I've done exactly what you described, once, and ever since if he started to get out of control all I have to do is make eye contact with him and in a lowered voice ask him " do you remember last time you tried this" and remarkably he stops acting out. Imagine that.

He is so well behaved generally that we get complements everywhere we go. He's that well behaved because he knows exactly what his limits are and what is expected of him. He knows that crossing us will get a response he does not like.

a 3 year old can be expected to stop and look at a parent when called, can be expected to use please, thank you and not have an explosive melt down when they don't get their way, as long as the parents are consistent and don't waver from their expectations. Assuming there is no other underlying conditions.

Yeah, you will have to haul them out of places, and you will have to send them to bed, take away dessert, etc when you say you will. This is what used to be called parenting.

Apparently, modern parenting now consists of neglecting your child's development towards being a functional member of society in favour of making excuses for their acting like wild animals because they're only ____ years old.

Why do you think it's socially responsible to allow a 3 year old child to behave in a manner less socially acceptable than a 1 year old dog.

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."

Actually, it won't be as much hell as you think it is. This is the stage of life where kids can understand and even participate in rule-building. You need to be a bit flexible, too--for example, if you're calling them at school to check up on them, you're probably going overboard--but including them in the discussion  really helps.

/I speak from experience
//Children are as good or bad as their parents
///Puberty screws it up a little, but not as much as people think--it really boils down to if the parents are willing to be respectful of the children instead of dismissive. Treat them like adults and they will behave like adults.

You seem to be under the impression these are serious bids.  The listing makes it clear the kid's friends are always aware of mom's plan to sell off the tickets, so they're obviously just bidding up astronomically with no intention to pay, thus thwarting mom's effort to regain any money on the tickets.  No, mom's still not going to let the kid go to the show, but at least the kids will have the "victory" of preventing any monetary gain.

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".

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.

FunkOut: 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."


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).

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.

Just sell the tickets if you must, but don't act like an even bigger baby and say "hey I'm doing this to get back at my shiatty kids". You are the adult. Have some restraint and dignity.

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,

For a while I tried to be all "stop liking things I don't like" with my daughter and One Direction, but that's a lost cause by now.  Now their images are all over her room, all five of 'em, Harry and Liam and Louis and Bobby and Skippy or whatever.

Absolutely, that thing was terrible to read. "Don't have addresses to send that fathers day card to" farking really? "Those reasons were half the reasons why some of you were conceived", so awful.

This. If you want respect, you must give respect. Yes, this even means parents need to respect their children.

I'm not opposed to punishing kids that step out of line, but  The brutally brilliant (somewhat excessive) product description reads: ... yeah. That.  I hope the scowl on your biatchy little friends faces Hmm? You're insulting her friends why, exactly? Her friends are not your concern, dad/mom. Lay off already. You're just making more trouble.
