    Personally I'd think they should have send the daughter to live with grandma as she's a little more compassionate.

  3. i dont think the punishment fits the crime, also the woods with wild boars sounds too dangerous

    I am all for the right to discipline your child how you see fit. But it sounds like abuse to me. or maybe abandonment?

    Nothing wrong with giving your kids the proverbial kick in the teeth once in a while and it does sound like a difficult teenager in the height of puberty but what they did was criminal.
    Like I said....gramma

    If the teen goes back with her parents, I see her moving out at 18 and turning into a fat hooker out of spite

    Yea, looney toons get my vote. I don't see a problem with a punisment fitting the crime, but if that punishment was for eating a pop tart, what would it be for something serious.

    Way overboard and criminal! Parents are nut cases from the sounds of it. Steroid rage?

    The parents sound like thugs who are revelling in their sense of superiority over their daughter. They aren't trying to teach her anything. Instead, they are scourging her out of contempt, and their behavior reflects not one iota of love for her.

    It's stupid as can be, and utterly contemptible, ...but I really don't see any laws being broken.

    Honestly...a week in a tent in the summer? Meals at home...a few hundred yards away? People pay money to have their kids do this, I don't see any physical abuse.

    Mentally though? These two idiots are well on the way to screwing that kid up as badly as they already seem to be. They seem to be threatening the girl with banishment.:cool:


    I also love the idiotic news media attempt to make it seem like abuse to force the other kid to use a hose for water. Not to mention...if she got "really hungry"...seriously? Like she might starve? In one day?:rolleyes:

    People on both sides of this story are pretty sorry humans.

    I still drink from the hose when I'm outside doing yard work, and I have a goofy kid who will actually go outside just to drink from the hose because he thinks it's cool. They should arrest me for making him come back inside to get a drink of ice-cold, filtered water from the cooler.
