I must take issue with your saying that the Fathers response was vengeful. We can compare his reaction (act of discipline) to that of a doctor doing radical extensive surgery to treat a major ailment, the surgery hurts but the result will make you feel better AFTER a time of recuperation. This young girl will now have an idea (theoricically?!?!) of what "value" is because those things that she took for granted are no longer hers! They are NOT her right but the PRIVILEGE that a parent gives to their child. Remember that with privilege comes inherent responsibility.
