Some people are considering the man part of the problem, since he's undoubtedly had a hand in raising his daughter. Newsflash: Even so called "good" kids will occasionally act this way (still got that tee shirt in my dresser drawer). His daughter used a 21st Century means of showing rebellion, he responded in kind. He keeps this up and she'll probably turn out okay.
As a matter of fact I applaud his restraint.
