However, there's something to be said for taking care of your family business in private.
I get that the girl put it all out there but, personally, I wouldn't put up youtube videos to put her in her place. That just seems (to me) like you're reacting with your hurt feelings and throwing a bigger tantrum than your kid did. I completely get how hurtful and rude she was. Maybe that's what it takes to get through to this kid.
Plus, the frugal person in me is in horror of shooting up a perfectly good computer. Couldn't he have given it to charity or something? I guess that wouldn't have been as good a show, though.
Admittedly, I seem to be in the minority on this issue, judging by the feedback I see her and amongst my friends IRL.
I agree. Embarrassment is not the way to punish a child.
