Now THAT's progressive parenting! Hat's off to that guy! If more people were stricter with their kids, like this is showing he is, then we would be a far better place! BRAVO and  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up!

Perhaps if they had "parented" a little better before, their bugle, beer, and Dom wouldn't be missing...  Big grin

This guy is actually a woman, the mother.

It seems like they are more upset at the cost of the lost acolhol rather than the fact their kid is drinking at 13...

I don't buy the story because you cannot open a bottle of champagne with a corkscrew. And I doubt that a kid that sounds as brattish as this one wouldn't know that you PULL OUT the cork.

I can see the mother's point of view but let's face it-kids are kids. Anyone who says he or she didn't behave like that when they were the kid's age must have had a very sheltered upbringing.
I aren't taking the kids side...I have 2 of my own and I know what little b******s they can be but hey,we all were little b******s once!

Whether or not it is a true story, it is pretty funny. If I would have done that when I was that kid's age, I would have had a tanned bum and would not be able to sit for a few days! And if I had a bottle of Dom in my 'fridge and my child drank it,  Pissed we would have a very long, heart to heart talk,............. then I would have "Grandpa" talk to him!

yeah, its funny when it happens to someone else, but if it happened to me, id be totally pissed off. It wouldnt teach me to not do that shit, itd probably make me want to do more shit to terrorize them.

Sharing domestic problems on the internet is stupid. Yes, a little funny, but I am not sure of the maturity level of the parents.

As mentioned earlier, this kid wouldn't act like this if his parents would have done some parenting.

That 'parent' should learn some basic spelling and grammar. 'recoop'?

And yet another story adds to the reputation of Arkansas!  Smile Personally, I don`t think "kids are kids" covers that kind of behaviour. If kids are raised right, they don't pull that kind of stunt.
