Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen. (NSFW video)

Summary:Want to see a father shoot multiple bullets into his daughter's laptop because of a post she made on Facebook? You're in luck, that's exactly what you're about to watch.

Update: Fake: Daughter responds to father shooting laptop over Facebook!

Remember the mother who beat her son for having a Facebook account? Well, this father shoots multiple bullets into his daughter's laptop (see minute 7:15) because of her behavior on Facebook. At the time of writing, this video has over 14 million views on YouTube, some 60,000 Likes on Facebook, and over 25,000 Shares on Facebook.

Here's what Tommy Jordan posted on his Facebook account when he first posted the eight-minute video:

Parents and Kids... watch. Today was probably the most disappointing day of my life as a father and I don't know how to correct the situation. Since I can't seem to make any headway with my daughter on Facebook, I chose instead to remedy the problem permanently.

Here's the video's description he posted 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!

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.

Every parent disciplines his or her child differently. I don't think Jordan's solution is the right one because his daughter will only think of him as an immature attention-seeking individual (assuming he's telling the truth, we now know where she gets it from). That's just my initial thought, as there's clearly more to this story than what you see in the video. My colleague Charlie Osborne has more to say.
