It is heartbreaking when people don’t have enough kindness for one another. Our world is full of such stories where someone gets made fun of or hurt by someone because they decided to.
Such is the story of today’s post which has since been deleted. The story is about a father who found out that his daughter made fun of a girl with cancer, and went as far as to pull her wig. The father decided to teach his daughter a lesson in humility. He shaved her head to make her feel better.
He shared his post on the internet:
“My ex-wife and I have a 16-year-old daughter together of which I have full custody (she has moved on with her new family)… My daughter recently got in trouble at school for making fun of a student that lost her hair from cancer treatment. Including pulling off her wig.”
“Apparently there is some pre-existing bad blood between the two of them, but I don’t think that even begins to excuse her behavior.”
“At some point, the other girl mentioned how my daughter’s boyfriend was just using her for $ex (this was actually a big shock to me as I had no idea she was $exually active) and called my daughter a sl*t. That’s what escalated the situation and resulted in the wig incident. Supposedly they have been arguing in class ever since my daughter started dating the guy in question. Basically just stupid teenage ‘he said she said nonsense.”
He gave her two options, one was to throw all her electronics away, and the other was to get her head shaved.
“I will throw away every single piece of electronics she owns and never buy her another again (this was just to coerce her into choosing option 2).”
“She will go to the hairdresser and get a cue ball haircut. As in, a completely shaved head, as bald as the hairdresser can do.”
“Everyone thinks I went way overboard. Her mother went ballistic at me saying it will make her the target of b*llying (kind of the point, teach her some compassion),”
What do you think about how this father handled the situation?
Do you think the father did the right thing in his lesson, or did he take it too far? What would you have done? You can share your thoughts in the comments.
