    That was a really sweet video, and yeah, that 26 year old dad has a lot more wisdom and compassion than so many people older than he.

    Publicly humiliating a child is abuse, full stop. There is no excuse.

    I saw that video a couple of days ago, Andee. I thought, here we go again with the public humiliation. Nope. Dude nailed it.

    I don't think this is a trend that's going away, I think this is the new normal and it's going to get worse. One day we'll have cameras embedded in our eyeballs so we can broadcast to the world in real time. Because someone, somewhere will actually want to see that shit.

    Not a fan and think it's shitty parenting.

    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
