Bravo to this dude, although I must say I always feel weird watching these things.

My dad for some reason did everything he could to discourage me from working. And as a teenager I actually wanted a job so I could afford to buy/do things without having to ask. I never quite could figure out what his deal was... maybe he wanted to make sure I had to ask..

i think this guys had a great idea

for some reason she seems really stupid for publicly posting this and secondly because he works IT i mean how stupid is that?
and lets not forget knowing what would probably happen..

props to him for teaching a valuable lesson

I'm sure to "get back at him" she'll go into porn.

Or become "an hero" and spark a huge national debate where liberals berate the dad for denying her the basic human right of using facebook.

Good for him. My parent's started that from the time we began earning money babysitting (age 13) We began paying rent (% of income so its not like I was paying a couple hundred a month or anything like that) chores we did because we were part of the family. We did not get an allowance. mom would pay for food, school supplies, pay bills ect. We paid half of clothes and shoes. Everything else we paid for on our own. If it was something we needed like a laptop for school we paid half and the other half would be for a birthday or something. College? We took out a loan from the bank of mom and dad and set up a plan to pay them back WITH INTEREST. Cell phones we paid for. If we could not pay our bills then oh well no more cell service for you. Cars we were loaned and paid the gas and insurance premiums and all maintenance costs. Tough love? yeah maybe but to be completely honest it taught us a valuable lesson in the way the world works. If you don't have an income you don't have the ability to get things you don't need for survival therefore you learn to live without. We learned to live like we had nothing so when we actually had excess we were smart on how we utilised it.

I can already see my son turning out like that Hannah girl. My exwife and her family have given him all the Wii, DS, and games he wants, plus huge tv in his room plugged into cable, and anything he wants he gets (currently an assload of pokemon cards w/ more arriving daily). When you want him to do something you have to fight him tooth and nail to get him to do it. I laugh when my ex-wife posts on facebook that he's not listening and refusing to do stuff (he's 6 btw). When I go over to visit and he starts acting up I just start shutting everything off and taking it away....all of a sudden he gets cooperative. Fancy that....
