take away the Samsung, and don't give her a phone. if that's how she's going to act, maybe she should buy one herself... I wonder what kind of phone she'd get when it meant saving up her own money.

Obviously it's inevitable. It's going to happen everyone but this kid doesn't get the seriousness of faking a suicide. So I'm saying see how she would feel if her parent drilled this into her, maybe then she'll stop trying so hard to have an iphone and appreciate what she has already.

Fuck the iPhone off anyway, I hate to be the one to do it but teach her Android superiority please?

It irritates me that parents are afraid to punish their children because its "abuse". When i was a kid and IF i acted like that i would have got the belt then sent to a corner. Its called discipline, try it on for size parents of the new generation.

#126 - Are you suggesting parents should use violence to discipline their children or were you speaking of discipline in general and just using violence as an example of how kids used to have it tougher? Because if you are seriously saying that parents should try using methods that most people are "afraid" to use "because its "abuse"", then maybe you should think about why those things are often considered abuse. Hitting a child with a belt is not okay and can leave serious physical and psychological scars.

#141, you mean scares like knowing to respect their parents or anyone at all?? It's not that we have had a tougher life growing up as kids, it's that we grew up on respect and hard work instead of being treated like fragile babies and had eveything handed to us on a silver platter. We didn't have the joys as these kids do when we were young but we were happy with it, these young bloods have all the joys in the world and still aren't satisfied, they're ungrateful and disrespectful, how is that better?

Some parents take giving their child discipline to the extreme. Where if they aren't "good enough" they get hit, so it's just a measure to make sure kids don't grow up with scars on their body. An example is myself.

if she wants to play around with a serious issue such as suicide, you should go the whole mile and have her speak to someone, maybe even commit her for her "own protection." allow her to understand how hurtful and wrong it is to mess around with death for the sake of a luxury item.

To be fair, a lot of parents who do discipline their children get in trouble now in some way or another. It takes one comment from the kid at school or online to open a whole investigation. Almost every week on the news there's a new story of parents getting in trouble for disciplining their kids in creative was (destroying the laptop or making them hold signs, etc). These are extremes that make it to media, but it happens continuously. Obviously, there needs to be a line where kids need to be protected from potential abuse- but we need to allow parents to discipline their kids how they see fit.

It honestly depends on the type of kid also cause my parents hit me and i just grew up to resent them i think trying alternatives out when they are younger is best and then using the most effective method whether it be a stern talking to or a swat on the hands with a ruler

Don't worry. If she and people like her are willing to take their own life for a cell phone or risk getting ran over by a train to take a stupid picture, then they will eventually kill themselves off.

Actually to #126 spanking your child isn't illegal. At least not in Canada. What's illegal is when they leave the house with bruises and cuts inflicted by you.

#239 do you no how insensitive that is? If a kid is getting hit he or she shouldn't have to worry about not being able to report it because the bruise didn't last.

I call people a liar on this app and I get moderated and yelled at. You can a teenage girl a cunt and that's OK! You're correct in your assessment though. She's a spoiled cunt and 10-1 her enabler parents went out and bought her the iphone

I'm 15 and I started put with a crappy phone at first and worked my ass off for my iPhone. Yes, my mom did actually discipline me and it fucking works. I can see it in most of my airhead asshole classmates that their parents didn't do the same. I am fully for discipline.

A ton of people buy their kids new cell phones. Most of the time they aren't cunts about it like OP's daughter though.

The worst part about this scenario is that the potential of an iPhone is seriously compromised in SA due to shitty signal, and majority of the country does not have the luxury of WiFi simply because it's such a hassle to obtain (infrastructural issues). So the child is better off with a Samsung and its lack of compatibility issues!

A friend of mine tried to break her nokia by dropping it down two flights of stairs. it worked perfectly. I once dropped mine in the toilet (thank goodness I hadn't done anything yet) and I just blowdried it afterwards (which admittedly wasn't the smartest thing to do). Again, it worked perfectly. No glitches at all. Those phones are impossible to break

I still have the old Nokia I got when I was fourteen. It's been thrown against the wall and otherwise mishandled by a two-year-old, dropped down the stairs, dropped in a pool, and works fine. Go Nokia!

And they are still rugged as hell. I've dropped my 920 so hard the shell warped and is visibly pulling away from the screen module. Screen itself is still pristine and the phone still works like a charm. My wife's has fallen in the bath twice and still works perfectly

My dad gave me a Nokia. Not to long ago he asked me how my cellphone was working. All I had to say/do was: "it's a Nokia!" And slamming it on the table. It's been a few yearS since I got it.

I got pretty pissed off when I read this too. I don't understand how people can be so ungrateful about these kinds of things. Not just kids but people in general. they should be happy that they actually have something instead of having nothing. It really is disappointing to see how people are so selfish

I'm especially disappointed because this girl lives in South Africa yet she's this ungrateful. In this country you literally see inhumane levels of poverty within a few kilometres of the upper middle class suburbs this girl probably lives in. You literally see starving children begging on street corners. So for her to be this ungrateful when she is surrounded by visible and obvious evidence that she's so much more privileged than the majority of people in this country is just disgusting.
