    Think I said it earlier in thread but its generation gap, I can see why he would be annoyed and why the girl in return is too but many people are just sheep and I say that in the nicest way!

    I.e its the "everyone else does it, so if someone has a problem with it they are the ones at fault not me"

    I think the girl was dressed provocativly in some scenes though "normal" for a girl her age so I guess I have some faults too in thinking that.

    But in these sorts of things it a bit of a no win situation since kids will love it if their parents let them do anything but others will say they are letting their children run wild.
    Obviously your children are going to love it if you let them do as they like but I think it's a parents responsibility to look after and guide their children. The dad only had his daughter's best interest at heart. What you've said in your 3rd paragraph is what the dad realised in the end and I thought he compromised really well. It would be weirder if her dad didn't care (like some of the parents on the show) and I think his approach has worked on his daughter - she did tone down her original outfit and she thought of his knickers rule when he wasn't there. Your last paragraph is right but being stricter (not crazy, just having boundaries etc) on your children will benefit them in the long run and he did let her go on holiday in the first place so wasn't stopping her from having fun.

    I'm surprised so many people on here think he's a strict dad. I know people whose parents are far worse and he genuinely seemed to care about the wellbeing of his daughter and was teaching her about self respect.

    Seeing the way these kids behaves actually puts me of having kids. Especially the girls (I know it's a double standard but as someone that would be a dad I'd be heartbroken to see most of this stuff)

    Good episode tonight, that guys parents were so strange I feel sorry for the guy. Also, did anyone else think it seemed like he hardly knew his 'friends' shaking hands with them and so did his parents, also they weren't exactly similar! First 2 people who reacted somewhat how I expect someone to react in this situation would be so embarrassing. Blatantly left the phone in the girls room on purpose without telling the parents though haha!

    Next week looks like it should be a good laugh with angry parents and nakedness

    Those lads were definitely not James' mates. I found it hilarious when one of them was going 'I WANT YOU TO GET ******' really aggressively - I thought he was going to rape poor James :'(

    Felt kind of sorry for the guy, so much was made out about him being a complete failure with girls, even just the hug from that girl was highlighted as a major success.
