Last week I was fortunate to sit down and spend some time catching up with a friend who has twin girls who are exactly, and I mean born on the same day exactly, as Mason. While they were playing we noticed a number of similarities in our parenting styles and had a brief discussion of what it means to be a good parent.
Then a couple days later I saw a video of a Dad who was reacting to a disrespectful post his daughter put on her Facebook wall. At the end he took out a gun and shot her laptop. I will say that it was the second time his daughter had done something like that, and I agree with consequences, but the way he dealt with it and the whole gun thing really didn't sit well with me. The video has, of course, generated a ton of attention (feel free to read about it & view the video here)
