Dad pays 14-year-old daughter $200 to quit Facebook
A father makes his 14-year-old daughter sign a contract that means for a mere $200 she will not be on Facebook for five months. He is paying in installments.If there’s one thing young people truly understand, it’s bribery.
From their very formative years, parents bribed them to keep quiet, behave, wear appropriate clothing — even, sometimes, desist from using rude words.
So it might seem utterly canny of Paul Baier, the vice president of a Massachusetts energy company, to find a veteran’s method to get his daughter away from Facebook.But this tale isn’t quite so simple.
