WTF? A twelve year old girl sued her dad for grounding her and won. And this was not one of those things where she spilled some milk and he forbade her to ever leave the house again, damning her to an eternity of Cinderella-like slavery and forced confinement. No. The girl, and let me stress this point, 12 years old, was posting photos on a dating site. The father had a bit of an issue with that.
I would have a bit of an issue with that. He told her not to. She did it anyway. He grounded her. She said, screw this, I’m going to manipulate the situation between you and mom (divorced) and go live with her. Which she did. The thing ended up in court, where the crazy-assed judge says that the punishment, to forego a field trip into Montreal, was unreasonable. Unreasonable? WTF? The judge said the girl had already been punished. They don’t say how.
I am praying there is more to this story than this. Because the way it looks now, any kid who doesn’t like what their parents do to keep them in line and safe until their brains grow some rational thinking (which is every kid) will be taking their parents to court to sue. And how does this involve the law in anyway, except for the fact that a twelve year old girl is manipulating the court and her parents custody agreement to have her own way?
