    My daughter's Toyota PU was the best discipline tool I ever had. The computer was a desktop in the living room (No laptops).

    As to Guy shooting the LT, He's just escalating the problem. Yea it looks good on Youtube but there will be retribution. That's a family that's coming apart and one upsmanship is a disaster waiting to happen. I know we went down this road until counseling put us on a sound footing.

    My daughters (and I) survived the teenage years and they are now successful young women. They both have come to apologize to Mom and I for those years.

    I tried the counseling rout, It didn't go so well ... In my opinion it was a rant session for my kid, The Counselor telling me what and how to do things and the counselor has never even raised kids ...
    I'm sure counseling works for some if you have the right kid and the right counselor and a parent that can digest some of the crap coming from people never raising kids ...
    I'm glad to hear counseling was the ticket for you , I talk to a lot of parents and I have come across more parents saying counseling was a joke more than a help, It empowered the kid and was a wast of time and money ... For Me over the years three counselors with two different kids none happened to be successful ...
    Five kids , Three Successful and two still learning they don't know it all and respecting adults and authority works better than that four letter word starting with "F" with authority following ...

    When I was a kid I landed on my Azz for disrespecting my father, Mother and Grandparents , Yea I hated it then... But,I didn't fear Police, A Judge or a teacher , I feared My father taking matters into his own hands and solving my delusions , He didn't in my eyes abuse Me he simply demonstrated do this and follow these rules and this happens and if you don't then this happens, The choice was mine ... I didn't walk around fearing my father, I only feared what was going to happen to Me for doing something I knew was wrong to do ... I was a hard headed kid and had no fear , I'm a hard headed Adult with no fear, The difference is now my upbringing forced me to really consider if that wrong thing your about to do , Is it really worth it ... Kids today are not held accountable for the wrong they do, It becomes a conversation and ends with a group hug ... If kids knew bad things would happen when they did wrong I firmly believe they would do less wrong things ... Dad coming home from a bad day at work and beating the kid is a terrible thing , Kids out destroying property and hurting other people financially or personally deserves a Azz kicking ... If destroying a kids favorite belonging to avoid kicking the butt works then so be it, Soon they will run out of things to destroy and then what ... I would not do or post any kind of reprimand with a weapon, But I have been at that wits end position and it really stinks ...

    I soooo remember the "Wait till your father gets home" thing. I think that was worse than him actually getting home. The PC environment has removed the teeth of that tool so now parents have to get creative.

    We went thru 2 Counselors before we found one the girls connected with. Stuck with it till results were made. It did sound like teenage rant but that was first year stage. After that they realized it wasn't getting them anywhere and behavior modifications emerged.

    I found the best discipline was the rotor of the Toyota Pickup. I would pull it when they were not allowed to drive. Also used a USB tracking device in the truck. Told them it was there and it would show me everywhere they drove. Insurance companies offer them (with built in cameras) for teen drivers now.

    I think part of the problem is the environment they are growing up in everything is fast and right now I can see it being hard to have to have patients with anything
