Students from Waianae High School present their story, titled “Parental Guidance Required,” about Waianae High School wrestler Anuhea Hamilton and her challenging relationship with her father, Kimo Hamilton. Mr. Hamilton is a former wrestler and plays a major role in Anuhea’s development in the sport. He admits to pushing her hard, all in the interest of preparing his daughter for life after high school because, as he says, “it’s a cruel world out there.” Father and daughter often disagree and butt heads. Mr. Hamilton points out, however, “there’s a difference between overbearing and old school. I’m old school.” In the end, father and daughter both come to the realization that their differences stem from a place of love and mutual respect.
