His reaction is so unnatural - every parent in the world would freak out when discovering that their daughter changed into a mythical creature that happens to crave their blood!!
At least I would have expected him to be devastated for several days, weeks, months or years.
But he's just like "Ah well, Ignorance is bliss..." and ends up visiting his vampire daughter with her vampire husband and his hyperintellectual half-vampire granddaughter (that he didn't even know about) the same day he finds out. All happy family...

Of course the kid thing, yeah that should have made him freak more than he did. Then again, maybe he just loved her so fast that he didn't even care what she was. He was just happy to have her as a part of the family.

I mean, Bella didn't freak out about Edward being a vampire and being close to dying too many times to count. Maybe Charlie is the same way.
Well said. I agree with you. He kinda just takes it for what it is and rolls with it. It's very Bella-ish. I think that pretty much covers the issue of his reaction...
