The relationship with a daughter and father is vastly different than son and mother, evolutionary and socially.
Rules are rules, someone's word is their word. He told her he would put a bullet in the laptop if she repeated her conduct, she repeated it, he put
a bullet in it. Good for him.
What the hell does any evolutionary b.s. have to do with that? In the past, it was perfectly acceptable for a father to impregnate his own daughter,
or sell her for some camels, or arrange a marriage for her with some other old man once she hit 13. Socially, evolutionary?
What does that
have to do with parenting? A parent makes some rules, and they demand those rules be followed, and they make some penalties for not following the
rules, and they make sure those penalties are doled out appropriately.
And for all the people stating it was a waste of a laptop, and this is the problem with society, get real.
You can't get rid of a laptop! I
have 3 at home right now! You can't throw them away, the 2nd hand stores won't give me more than $5 a piece for them. Nobody seems to want them
anyway, why not some target practice? And for that matter, I throw away the muffin off my egg mcmuffin every morning. I think about the starving
kids in Africa every time I do it, but I don't know their address, and I don't think you can mail a muffin anyway.
