Parsons felt his daughter did the right thing, as he completely supported the Party and conceded guilt. He was actually proud of her actions in reporting him, a very proud Papa. 

"It was my little daughter,' said Parsons with a sort of doleful pride. 'She listened at the keyhole. Heard what I was saying, and nipped off to the patrols the very next day. Pretty smart for a nipper of seven, eh? I don't bear her any grudge for it. In fact I'm proud of her. It shows I brought her up in the right spirit, anyway."
