Great parenting? Or paranoia? Actress Denise Richards sets up hidden cameras to monitor teen daughter

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

Hollywood actress Denise Richards has taken extraordinary steps to make sure her daughter isn't sneaking around. 

As a childless woman, I am definitely the authority on parenting, so let me tell you if this is too much or not enough.

The news of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills actress Richards using the hi-tech option to keep tabs on her daughter comes along right at the same time that Attorney General William Barr is feeling emboldened to go after the wiretapping of Donald Trump.

Are these more localized invasions of privacy really all that different?

Has eerie echoes of why digital media development gurus don’t let their own kids “play with the toys” they themselves created… Richards obviously knows what passes for “morality” in Hollywood and has been so for decades now…

I’ve read horror stories where Denise Richards is at the opposite end of the ‘great parent’ spectrum. Hollyweird and its sickos.

Parents have a problem, they wait until the crime has been committed to teach their kids a lesson.
If you don’t potty train your puppy, you’ll have a grown dog that piddles in your house.
If you don’t train your high strung colt, you’ll have 1000 pound aggressive, dangerous animal when it’s full grown.
Problems have various levels of consequences, but all problems should be addressed before they happen.
The security system is a good idea though.

Good for Denise in having the correct instincts on this issue.

Maybe it wouldn’t be a battle if the messages sent to the kids were consistent. Hollywood loves to encourage teen promiscuity but then Mom wants to curb her daughter’s promiscuous proclivity that has been enhanced and encouraged by her very own media.

“In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”

― C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

P.S.
“We promote promiscuity and are alarmed that our kids are sexually active.”
