A parent-daughter bonding experience
Imagine you are the parent of a teenage daughter and she is squabbling with a classmate. How do you resolve it? Do you get together with the other girl and her parents and have the young women talk it out?

If that's your course of action, you are not cut from the same cloth as Robert Gonzales and Monica Ochoa of Austin. These two thirtysomething parents got their feuding daughters together alright, but instead of having them settle their differences peacefully, they arranged for their daughters to duke it out mano a mano.

And because this is a high-tech age, they promoted and arranged the battle on Facebook, filmed the catfight and then uploaded the footage to YouTube. (The video has since been taken down.)

According to the arrest affidavit reported in the Austin American-Statesman, Gonzales, 34, took his 14-year-old daughter to an elementary schoolyard for a prearranged showdown with the 15-year-old daughter of Ochoa, who is 35. There, the two girls fought for two minutes and 43 seconds.

According to one affidavit, Gonzales was an enthusiastic corner man for his daughter, at one point urging her to go "toe to toe" with Ochoa's daughter. The same goes for Ochoa, who allegedly advised her daughter to put her hair up in a bun so her foe couldn't pull it.

Gonzales and Ochoa were allegedly heard encouraging the girls to hurry up and finish, as some in the crowd were worried that the cops were on the way. After Gonzales stopped the fight, he was said to have argued with Ochoa about hair-pulling. Gonzales then got in his car with his daughter, who reportedly had a scratched face and neck, and another man.

Ochoa took her daughter, who suffered a black eye and a scratched neck, to her car. Waiting there for the fight to finish was Ochoa's other daughter, who is all of six years old.

Gonzales and Ochoa were both charged with injury to a child.

Should have put boxing gloves them. Would have been OK and legal

It wasn't so long ago that fist fights drew a 30 minute after school detention at worst. It is weird parents were organizing a debacle of a teenage norm though. They should at least play the role of a concerned parent.

You cut off the last graf!"Both Gonzales and Ochoa were suspended from their day jobs as cockfighters."

Not to be racist, but c'mon.... What a way to force "15 minutes of fame" on your young teenaged daughter.

No guns, no knives, nobody got seriously hurt, and they got to settle their differences. It worked.

So after all of these hair-pulling and scratchings, who won?

There's nothing like a good role model.  I always wonder WTF the song "The Night I Called The Old Man Out" was all about, could there really be people who think like that?  Well, I guess there could.

Reminds me of the old days, the really really old days, before mankind could speak or hold an intelligent thought in mind.  Since then evolution and intelligence has led most humans to resolve differences by argument and compromise.

When you can't think and talk your way to a compromise, just be an animal.

My dad, who is 73, fought one of his 5th grade classmates on the school stage.  It was a boxing match set up by the school principal.  Each had heavy gloves.  Fight lasted one round after both agreed to give up because they were so tired out.

And would have eliminated the possibility of hair-pulling.

When there were disputes in the quasi-rural  suburb of Nashville I partially grew up in, the oldest kid in the neighborhood would arrange for us to fight to settle them. It was bareknuckle, but there were rules -- no kicking, no hitting below the belt, no eye-poking. But the thing was, he was 12 and we were about 7.

Maybe you should put a radio in your rest room?
