‘A righteous dude’

10 February 2012

That’s what Vinnie at The Jawa Report called this Father of the Week. We saw this video on Facebook at 0’dark-thirty this morning thanks to David Burge, known to us mortals as IowaHawk (and a Dad himself), who wrote: He will be added to the Mount Rushmore of parenting.

The Dad explains this video on YouTube:

Warning: Since this video seems to have gone crazy, I figure I’ll post this notice. I’m going to read a letter my 15 year old daughter wrote. There ARE some curse words in it. None of them are incredibly bad, but they are definitely things a little kid shouldn’t hear… not to mention things MY KID shouldn’t say!

If you want to see the original Facebook thread, it’s located at:

My daughter thought it would be funny/rebellious/cool to post on her Facebook wall just how upset she was and how unfair her life here is; how we work her too hard with chores, never pay her for chores, and just in general make her life difficult.

She chose to share this with the entire world on Facebook and block her parent’s from seeing it. Well, umm… she failed. As of the end of this video, she won’t have to worry anymore about posting inappropriate things on Facebook…

Maybe a few kids can take something away from this… If you’re so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you’re deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.

Now cue the predictable, politically correct, touchy-feely-sensitive parents who want to be “friends” with their kids who will be writing to the Wordboss protesting the inhumanity of this video.

Snap out of it.

The girl was warned and she thought her old man was an idiot. Clearly he is not.

Now she’s learned what we tell everyone we know: Don’t write anything in an e-mail or on a website if you don’t want to see it published on the front page of tomorrow’s newspaper. It’s not your diary. It’s a public place.

Actually, we laughed out loud watching this because, if momzilla had been a gun-carrying woman, she would have done something just like this if one of us ended up standing on her last nerve.

Thanks, IowaHawk!

Well done to this father. He is a righteous dude.
