Extreme Parenting

Obviously this young lady lied to her father and was caught.  Dad decided to teach her a lesson and this was the result.  Now, we don't know what she lied about, nor do we know what other types of issues he is experiencing with his daughter.

This photo will outrage many.  Others will stand up and applaud that he is taking the bull by the horn and teaching her a lesson she will soon not forget.  I think it is safe to say she will at least think about it the next time she has the inclination to lie to her dad.

Would I do this?  Maybe, maybe not.  It would depend on the circumstances.  He at least still has enough control over the situation that she did this.  If she were one of those very sad cases where the child is totally out of control he never would have been able to get her to do this.  Maybe he sees signs that is the direction she is headed in and wanted to nip it in the bud.  Again, we don't know.

It is possible that she lied about going to party where there were boys and/or drugs.

In any event I hope everything works out for this family, and I do kinda give the guy some kudos.  He is there, he is trying to instill a sense of right and wrong as well as a sense of personal responsibility.  Sadly many children are being raised by single parents and don't always have the involvement of both parents.  So good for you dad in trying to be a positive influence to your growing daughter.

Would you do this?

What struck me about this picture was that she was being made to take responsibility for lying and, by standing with her, he is taking responsibility for the punishment, even though he will probably get some negative responses.
