    The police are wrong. I hope it goes to trial. I highly doubt the charge sticks, especially with a jury.

    Luckily the police diagree with YOU.
    Punishing someone who doesn't do their chores with...extra chores. Makes complete sense.

    I don't care if it was multiple days or what time it happened. To me more 'old school' punishment would solve a lot of problems we have in society.

    Since you think it is 'abuse', which is above even 'cruelty', can you explain what makes it such, and perhaps what you would find to be 'acceptable' punishment?
    Understood, but next time at least warn us that it's one of those asshole sites that starts the video up at full volume commercial first with no sound controls available.

    I personally think it's a little excessive for what the kid did but there isn't much information except the kid was watching too many videos and not doing homework or chores. No word on whether any of the devices playing the videos were taken away or if the father had first done other disciplinary actions so it's hard to say whether this was the result of the kid breaking the rules repeatedly or not.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Not to mention, some punishments work with some children and not at all with others. Parents are generally clued into this for their own children.

    In my county the police would be dropping the charges with in day, that is if they were that stupid enough to arrest the man in the first place. If it EVER got to trial, the jury would toss it so fast it would make the stupid prosecutors head spin. We have dumb prosecutors but I doubt they are this dumb. This all presumes the judge doesn't toss it themselves.

    Your right I do have an emotional attachment. This is a bull**** charge though and through. This family is now being tortured by CPS and the judicial system. That's cruel and unusual punishment, for a nonexistent crime.

    Obviously not. We still have a lot of "California style" parents whose kids are public nuisances because time-outs don't work, and they're all out of ideas.

    I haven't yet seen any indication the child was physically harmed by this. In fact, it sounds like what we used to do daily for fun on our own as kids (we used to build the most amazing forts).

    Let's see, the kid wasn't doing his chores, so give him extra chores? Got anything stronger than that?
