As parents, we often fail in our efforts to help our children learn right from wrong for a variety of reasons. A father found out that his daughter had been making fun of a fellow student who was ill at school.
Things developed to the point that she took off the girl’s wig. The father became enraged by this and decided to take matters into his own hands by disciplining his daughter in a way that provoked debate and a variety of responses on social media.
After facing backlash for how he handled his bully daughter, the father eventually took down the post.
I share full custody of our 16-year-old daughter with my ex-wife, who has gone on to a new family. My kid was recently reprimanded for making fun of a fellow student who had lost her hair due to chemotherapy. even taking off her wig,” he wrote at the beginning of his post.
Although there seems to have been some animosity between them in the past, I don’t think that justifies her actions in the slightest.
It turned out that they didn’t get along because his daughter was now seeing the ex-boyfriend of the other female.
The father revealed that at one time the other girl called my daughter a sl*t and said that her boyfriend was only using her for sex. I was shocked to learn that my daughter was involved in sexual activity.
That’s what set off a chain of events that led to the wig incident. Since my daughter began seeing the man in question, there are rumours that they have been fighting in class. Basically, it was just typical teenage bullshit, “he said, she said.”
In an attempt to teach his daughter a lesson, he told her what had happened and what she had done, and then gave her two options to choose from. He had two ideas: one was to ruin all she had, and the other was to take her to a salon and have a bald haircut. The daughter chose the latter course of action, shaving her head in order to go to school.
“..Everyone believes that I went too far. Her mother lost it when I told her that she might become the victim of bullying (sort of
He believed he had made the proper decision, even though not many others shared his opinion. Many people took the time to discuss the situation and provide their perspectives. “Your daughter is a bully because you are a bully,” commented one commenter. I really doubt that you are using abuse and humiliation to “teach her a lesson” for the first time.
Another individual said, “What you did has a term.” It is known as child abuse. Removing her electronics would have been a suitable penalty. It would have been acceptable to ground her as a punishment. It is inappropriate to humiliate her and violate her right to physical autonomy as a form of punishment. It’s improbable that she will take anything positive out of it, and it might even continue the bullying loop.
Some, nevertheless, also complimented his parenting. “I fully endorse your choice. Since you are her father, you have every right to act in this way; it is not abusive and reflects reality. Someone who supported the father wrote, “If she’s comfortable attacking someone for something they have no control over, she needs to see how it feels.”
Another admirer said, “She will learn a very important lesson about the kind of impact her actions have on the victim.”
