Genius. Can't beat teaching kids that violence is an appropriate way to resolve issues. That aside from acclimatising young women to male violence so they'll be more passive about it when their husbands beat shit out of them. That's a woman's place, I assume, in Texas, judging from the Mother's response. Teach her to be a Good (obedient, passive, punchbag) girl.
(Don't know where you're getting the idea teens need up to 5000 kcals a day. The NHS disagrees
. Though of course, we are trying to actively prevent teen obesity, rather than encourage it)
