What he did is not discipline. Physical violence with a child is never justified. Period. If your teenage daughter is physically threatening your safety than call the police. Dollar claims everything is fine in his household. Really? You just got arrested. I’d like to know what your daughters think.

I have never punished nor ever physically abused any of my children yet starting last year my 28 year old daughter began pushing me and knocking me down if she did not get what she wanted. After the 2nd time I warned her I would have her arrested because she is twice my size and I am a senior citizen and it hurts. The 3rd time she body slammed me from behind, called the police, said I pulled her hair and slammed her head on the table. They believed her every word, I went to jail, tried to plead innocent but was told either plead No Contest or go to jail for 30 days. God is God is He knows I state the truth. In America a child can lie on a parent and they are already guilty. His child, like my daughter, will eventually recant their story making excuses but the damage is done. Guilty until proven innocent is the scariest feeling I ever experienced going to a cold jail cell and court and now a record of being physically violent to my daughter with only 3 witnesses to my innocence. It is not good to prejudge when we do not even know what per cent of the facts we possess. God help our children.

Hmmm. . . .not so sure what this is really all about but, with two sides to every story, lets not jump to quick assumptions. We're dealing with a young 15 year old that wants to party and a father that wants to protect his daughter, as any natural father would want to do. Lets calm down, not be stupid, and even be careful . . .please.

Do you even have children? How do you know all this is true?

Exactly Gaylon!!! That's why I say all these children need their behinds whipped, the old fashioned way. I'm not going to take it back either.

I know what thing, she's awfully calm for someone who was just attacked, choked, and assaulted!!! You all better wake up, before these children take over the world.

Now, if the daughter admits there is no physical injury, and no signs of physical injury - how did he get arrested? Corporal punishment is a parents choice, as long as you do not leave marks or bruises. The first responders in these situations need to be trained a little better. You can ruin someones life (career) if you arrest them for child abuse and they are not guilty.
