Warlordtrooper: Not an enabler but you don't just turn your back on family. Especially your own kids. No matter how much they fark up.


Agreed, but kicking her out and even cutting her off isn't necessarily the same thing as turning your back. That does happen sometimes -turning your back is the easiest way to cope with having done these things- but sometimes, it's the only option remaining.

It's best to let kids experience the consequences of their actions when they're young: give them practice in consequentialist thinking, in an environment where the consequences of their actions are not so severe. This doesn't seem to have happened, or else something undermined the teaching such that it didn't stick.

When it doesn't stick, it gets sadder. Now the consequences get more severe, but there's still no way to teach consequentialist thinking but practice. And so the only choice left is to allow them to hit rock bottom. This is traumatic, both for the person involved and for any loving parent watching it happen (and watching it happen is the duty of any loving parent who has decided to let it happen). But when people get older, the ways to induce change are traumatic.

That's why this is a lesson that needs to be taught early on, rather than just letting the kids figure it out on their own later. Sure, they will, if they don't die first. But it'll hurt them a lot more, and it'll hurt their loved ones a lot more, and it may pull in other people and hurt them too. To do this early on is a lesser hurt that protects them from something much worse. We've forgotten the use of such things.

Lady Indica: She's moving back home because she didn't get what she wanted in court and her friend's Daddy sure as shiat wasn't going to pay for and support her through college.

She accused her father of being a pervert and perving on her, and left vile voice mails that she wanted to shiat on her parents faces. She went back to get the money she couldn't get through the courts. Teens are nuts, but this one...wow. Sociopathic levels.

Parents are stuck w/ Hobson's choice. She hasn't graduated HS yet, has such a sense of entitlement and affluenza that she's unlikely to be able to hit the ground running and get a job (or two) and a place, etc. She's incapable of taking care of herself, and that means her options if they don't take her back are pretty obvious. Plus most parents love their kids and care about them even when they're ungrateful little shiats like this one.

She'll go to college and maaaaybe work a year or two to find and marry a rich man...may whatever gods he believes in have mercy on his soul.


For some reason I see her in her mid 30s on her 3rd marriage.

Fissile: Amazing how many of you are white knighting the parents.

Facts: Jersey Princess' dad is a retired police chief.    Chief of police in Jersey is a political appointment.   Dad currently is township administrator in a neighboring burg.   Township administrators obtain their jobs through political appointment.    Her lawyer is plugged big time into Jersey politics, and is a Christie crony.

Wanna bet there is more going on here?  That Jersey princess is just a pawn in the game?


It's entirely possible that there's more going on between the parents and her lawyer, but I don't see how any of it is relevant to the case at hand.

At most, one party offered to settle in exchange for political favors, and the other party refused. Such a refusal might be noteworthy for other reasons, but it renders any bigger political aspects of this case essentially moot.

Her father is a former police chief?

Now I have even less than zero sympathy for that biatch.
I bet daddy used his influence to never let her see the consequences of her actions and now she's a spoiled biatch.
I hope karma gets him square in the ass for ever single person's life he ruined as a cop and for covering for other cops that abused their position.

I nominate myself to carry out said punishment on this wayward (and hot) young lady.

I'm thinking it's to make the lawyer famous.

If my kid said "I don't have to follow the rules, I'm an adult, I can do what I want", then moved out, then sued me, the way she did, I'm not sure what I'd do.  But I suspect that if she wanted to come back, she would have to agree (on paper) to a list of rules, sign a lease,  and that she would have to pay rent.

Letting her be that big an asshole with no repercussions is a bad plan.

groppet: Buttknuckle: Maybe if the biatch wasn't so dumb, she might have gotten a scholarship.

She did get one from a school in Vermont IIRC, but I could imagine them pulling it after the little twunt pulled a stunt like this.


This story says that:
Rachel, who has a $20,000 scholarship, said the University of Vermont - a private college - is her first choice.
But Sean Canning said he is not refusing to pay for her college education.
"I reject the whole question on that - the whole premise," he said. "We have a college fund that's available to her - there's no doubt about that. But it's the equivalent ... of going shopping at a high-end store and sending somebody the bill."


Which makes it sound like she has a $20K scholarship from somewhere and wanted to go to UVM. UVM, by the way, is not a private college, it's a state university. The confusion, perhaps, comes from the fact that it was the first to charge differential rates of in-state and out-of-state tuition (back in the '50s, iirc), and the out-of-state fees make it nearly equivalent in cost to a private college.

Sounds like part of the fight here was her folks demanding she go to Rutgers.

I take offense at that.  I grew up in Jefferson Twp. and I sure as hell never would have pulled the shiat this kid did.  But then again, I was brought up pretty damn well by my parents.

Although I agree with you on the application of a wooden spoon.  Might have nipped this whole thing in the bud a few years ago.

Sofa King Smart: ManateeGag: what_now: Sean Canning blamed Inglesino for escalating the conflict, but the best friend's dad says he supported the teen because she is a "terrific, extremely bright young lady.

are you insinuating he was banging her like a snare drum?  plowing her like a corn field?  giving her the ol' high hard one?  slipping her the salami?

/you're probably right.

Just to help everyone understand what a helpful, caring, totally not banging his daughter's friends kind of guy he is... this is the bff's daddy that is bankrolling her lawsuit.



totally legit... not banging the teenager at all... certainly not an epic douche.


You feel pretty confident that photo is indicative of a whole slew of awful personal traits why? Peach colored pants? Based on his actions the guy sure seems like a dick but that picture could be of the nice uncle that takes everyone to the water park every summer. Whatever.

The angrier a person is about this news story, the less reasonable a person they probably are. If you're so upset by this family's problems that you're spewing out insults like "biatch" and opining that she should become a sex worker, you probably need to take a step back and adjust your priorities.

Take the trash out, and try not to sue us on the way back.

it's supposed to snow Monday. that would be a good time.


I am late so this may have been covered but she accused her dad of being kinda pervy tword her. I love my daughter but that would be pretty difficult to just get over. I am not saying I would not reconcile with her but it would be difficult to have her living back in the house again, those kind of accusations can ruin a guys life.

I'm not sure there's a direct correlation here.  I mean, I don't give a crap about this story either way, really, and I'm a raging asshole.

Warlordtrooper: Not an enabler but you don't just turn your back on family.


After I left home, my parents be me to a bloody pulp and left me in a ditch, and during my three-month stay in ICU they unplugged my life support machine twice.

Do you think I made the right decision by having them convicted of attempted murder, or should I have dropped the issue and invited them over for dinner?

Really? Because I don't feel much of anything about it. People are products of their upbringing and genetics -- e.g. apples don't fall far from the tree. This new story sounds like your typical rich family bullshiat.

Don't worry, Farkers, your kids won't sue you -- they know you're broke!
 
2014-03-14 10:29:22 PM  

Mystery Vortex: Oh, you want to go to college? Get a job and save up for it yourself you dumb coont.

No wonder so many kids are living with their parents into their 40's now. Coddling and paying for everything for them doesn't teach them shiat about how to survive on their own. There's a reason birds push fledglings out of the nest.


How? A minimum wage job isn't supposed to be a "living wage" -- remember? And without a college degree, minimum wage is supposedly all you can get. So how does one get the kind of job to save for a college degree without a college degree?

You can't. So you need loans. To get decent loans (or sometimes any loans at all), you need a decent credit score. That means you need credit. Or you need a cosigner (a parent). If you don't have either of those, you'll have to build credit with your minimum wage job (somehow).

My bet is that you're not a youngster. Upward mobility no longer exists; college is way more expensive; and wages haven't risen to match inflation. People are poorer now than they used to be.

College isn't for the kind of people who have to work their way through it. Our society has seen to that.

Who expects that?  I don't even have kids.  But that also isn't written into law.  Outside government programs, your kids are not legally obligated to support you any more than you are legally obligated to provide them with a college education.

Plenty of people. Just lurk in the next 'breeder' thread and you'll see quite a few people promoting children as an alternative to a retirement plan.

Lsherm: Outside government programs, your kids are not legally obligated to support you any more than you are legally obligated to provide them with a college education.


And I fully support people paying their own bills rather than mooching off of their relatives, in both directions. That said, if you demand that I give your son half my house and a quarter of my income for the next four years, "because we're family", then you better damn well be there for me when I need help, or at least put me back in your will before you croak.

My bet is that you're not a youngster



My bet is that you don't have student loans.  They are backed by the Federal Government so you don't need a co-signer and your credit score doesn't matter.  Any citizen going to college is pretty much pre-approved for student loans.

So you would just cut your daugther out of your life forever?  You sound like a horrible parent.

How did you get your comment from Walker's?

But I'd do the same, and tell her she is not going to have a second chance to sure me by establishing that she lives at my home and having a much stronger claim to my being responsible for her.

Horrible parenting would be to reward her for her actions. I've seen firsthand in my own family how that works out.

You sound like an enabler.

Not an enabler but you don't just turn your back on family.  Especially your own kids.  No matter how much they fark up.


You sound like my wife. Why can't you turn your back on family? Your family members can be dickheads too. Why keep that nonsense in your life?

Meh, I'd probably let her move back in too.  Now that she's been knocked flat on her ass by her scheme her parents will hopefully be able to leverage this to instill some boundaries and maybe she'll grow as a person a little.

Tossing her out on the street would feel immediately satisfying but would ultimately just destroy any chance of a positive parental relationship with her.  Most parents don't want that and it would probably just make her worse.
