Don't be like this parent
Dear parents that don't play games,— Rami Ismail (@tha_rami) May 5, 2020
You can discipline kids in a million ways, but if you destroy their digital homes, their creativity, or the things they love - you are being cruel.
They will never trust you with anything they care for again, and they'd be right not to. pic.twitter.com/zPpBCsjcPT
This is not the way to discipline a child.
Kurt Loder is older than you at least

Disney reports earnings, halts dividend payments
Disney reported a 58% drop in operating income from parks and cruises, but they did also announce they have over 33.5 million paid Disney+ subscribers. The company also made the tough decision to suspend their dividend payments for the next six months. Times are tough in the house of Mouse.

Asif Khan posted a new article, Evening Reading - May 5, 2020
Holy ducking shit. That is TERRIBLE parenting all the way around. It gave me horrible anxiety just to read that. 😳
Yeah that's, just so bad. I wonder if it'll get the kid to start looking into backup solutions or saving that stuff off to thumb drives or whatnot in the future. That's the best possible scenario from what his dumb fuck of a parent did.
Fuck yeah it is... one time my mom and I got into a fight and she ripped up one of my drawings and I had a fit like I had never thrown before... don’t destroy people’s works of art, especially your own kid’s. I was 13 and never forgot.
Yeah that parent sucks so hard and she should feel guilty for the rest of her life. Seriously.
This kind of "punishment" does not reach a kid anything but that you are an asshole. I try not to do this with my kid and so far it's working out. He's only 7 but his consequences follow directly from his actions. I'd never destroy something that was his or something he made.
Also, the parent is an asshole for making their kid get up at 7am during a fucking pandemic. Controlling much? 🙄🙄
Reading some of the comments in that tweet are really fucking horrible too... lots of bad people... ugh... :(
Would he have walked up and incinerated his folder of drawings too if he had spent a year on that?
I feel super bad for the kid.
Kurt Loder always looked old, though. I just assumed he was some kind of diversity hire
I appreciate the logo taking wearing a face mask seriously. Not enough logos are.
We are gonna stay our asses at home, wear masks when we do go out, socially distance, and play video games.
