I agree, #1. This girl sounds really awesome. 39, what you're saying is true but at least where I live intruders are way less likely to enter the house if someone is inside because they fear being shot.

haha if I lived in Texas I'd be scared too. At least it's not like here in Cali. If an intruder went inside someone's house and got hurt, jumping in through the window and breaking something or whatever, he/she can sue the owner of the house. What's up with that? -,-

If i was an intruder i wouldn't expect to get hit in the head with a metal rake by a 7 year old girl. But that's just me.

#94, to me it sounds like it was likely dark out and so he probably would have thought she was asleep. Or he very well could have, but since she is young, she probably didn't open the door (which is smart for a young child. Stranger danger and all that.)

Honestly, I would be proud of your daughter for having the courage to defend herself. You're raising a true spitfire!

Sharp pieces of steel is my choice, about 3 feet long with a handle on one end. Pointy end goes in the other guy.

Not more boring, just shorter. You would't be able to make a movie about this with an hour-and-a-half build-up and then the whole thing just ending with the dad coming home and bam, rake then stitches. Commercial though, maybe. "Send your regular-ass little girl to bad-ass little girl school-- BAM, RAKE THEN STICHES"

He probably did not leave her home alone. He just said "I locked myself out", he could have checked the mailbox or got the paper.

Plus 7 being to young to be home alone? What's she going to do build a thermonuclear space ready warhead and take over the earth if she's not supervised 24/7?

Ooor he could've been coming home from work and probably his wife/gf was sleeping but his daughter was still awake

Because, #71, the fml never said the dad left the property. It's entirely possible he was just doing something outside. And besides, as long as they're not alone for long periods of time, it's okay for a 7 year old not to be supervised 100% of the time. Otherwise we end up with people like my roommate, 20 and incapable of taking care of herself.

Well, since he got smashed in the head with a rake and was thought to be an intruder, I assume it was dark. So maybe OP assumed his family members were sleeping and didn't want to wake them. I've gone through the back door for that very reason whenever the front door was locked.

He also could have announced his presence instead of just entering. I know it was his own home but it wasn't an expected entry.
