Let’s face it, raising a teenager is difficult and it is a lot of work. If you don’t believe me, just ask any parent who has ever had a teenager in their lives. They are at an age where they think they know everything but they still require some gentle guidance to ensure that they turn out well in the end. Teenagers will eventually grow up and the frustrations will subside, but the years that they are going through those hormonal changes is certain to make you rethink your decision of having a child in the first place.
Okay, so it may not be that bad, but there are some challenges associated with raising a teenager to be certain. Tempers tend to run high and teens can get rebellious, but if you stick to your parenting plan, it will likely work out well in the end. Sometimes, teenagers may make a decision at the spur of the moment that they will come to regret when the wrath of their parents comes out in full force. That is what this teen experienced after he slammed his bedroom door in his father’s face. Big mistake.
The teen’s brother received an image from the mother shortly after the outburst occurred. You can see the top half of the image above. It looks like he isn’t angry anymore, he is regretting his earlier decision.
Perhaps you have already noticed what is missing. If not, look at the hinges on the side of the opening. You got it, the door is missing! This picture was posted to Facebook and people were chiming in to say that their parents also used a similar parenting method and removed their doors. It turns out, however, that this teen didn’t lose the entire door.
Dad went and got his saw from the toolbox.
He did some planning
And before long, his son had a Dutch door and had lost his right to privacy. It may seem extreme, but I’m sure he will not be slamming the lower half of the door anytime soon.
In true little brother style, a picture was posted to Reddit with the title: “When your brother gets his door cut in half as punishment for slamming his door.”
The father obviously has a good imagination because losing half of your door is perhaps worse than losing the whole door.
Many readers said that their parents used creativity when punishing them as well.
Sounds like Donna’s parents also got a little creative.
Right or wrong, the deed is done and I think the lesson was learned.
