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.

#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.
No one said beat them when a toddler is acting bad you spank them on the hand or use a paint stick on their legs you dont beat them until they are all bruised up same thing with the belt im sure your not a parent because umm how do you handle you kids behavior ??
#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?
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
Oh look at me I'm a privileged white girl who lives in a first world country my life is soooo difficult because my dad got me the wrong phone I should go cut myself because my life is so hard waaaa waaaa waaa shut your daughter the fuck up and make her show some god damn greatfulness
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.
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
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
Stupid ungrateful little piece of.... Oh sorry I'm just overwhelmed with rage and disappointment right now.
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.
Wow...Your daughter is a bitch... And reminds me of someone I knew...>_> Hm...OP WE NEED A FOLLOW UP
Take it back and give her a t mobile flip phone. Your daughter is a spoiled little brat she doesn't deserve an I phone or a samsung
