When you act like a two year old throwing a tantrum how can anyone, let alone a child, respect you? She most likely paid for that comp so throwing it is really more a punishment for her than him and it sets a terrible example for her child.
Thankfully, the puppy was a nice unicorn chaser :)

sb: .uhhh, ok. one large cappucino.
