Ya, when the skateboard came back the other way and smacked the kid.
Over protective moms are the reason this nation has been wussified.

So, what exactly in your parental opinion does that father's action teach his child?

Perhaps, however, does that justify the father's action?

No, that was a real douche move. The kid didn't even have a chance.

Don't give me lip service.

This kid is on that ramp weekly. They were talking about a new move and the kid was giving lip service to dad.

Shut up dad and let me do this... Bipp



Dads that are tough on their kids, tend to grow up to very successful.
Over protected kids, can't cope and need a therapist.
