His Daughter Bullied Another Girl Because She Bought the Same Prom Dress, After a Heart to Heart with Her, He Learnt There Was More to The Story

A single father tells the story of his daughter becoming upset because someone else bought her prom dress. It even strayed towards bullying, so he spoke with her about it and learned there was more to the story than met the eye.

He Went Prom Dress Shopping

“I’m a single dad to 3 daughters. This story revolves around my middle child, “Juliet” (17 years old). A few weeks ago, I took her shopping for her prom dress. She picked one that she absolutely loved and she truly looks like a princess.”

But Someone Else Bought The Same Dress

However, last week, Juliet became upset when she saw a classmate (not a friend) had bought the same dress in a different color. She tried asking the girl to change, but the girl declined. The man sympathized with Juliet and let her vent her anger to him. However, he did point out that the different colors made them look not that similar.

She Started Acting Out Of Character

The problem arose when Juliet started trash-talking the girl for the past week. The man said, “This is very out of character for her, she’s never been a gossip. But I’ve heard her venting to her friends about it. I let it go because what does venting really matter?”

Her Teacher Was Concerned

Then he received a call from Juliet’s history teacher, who overheard Juliet speaking badly about the girl multiple times. Although the girl wasn’t in the same class, the teacher was concerned it might escalate into bullying.

So, the man sat Juliet down and talked to her about what had been going on. He mentioned that it wasn’t fair to the other girl and that it didn’t seem like she did it intentionally to hurt Juliet. He even offered to return the dress and get a new one if having a unique dress was important to her.

Juliet refused to get a new dress and continued trash-talking the girl. At that point, he told her that while her feelings were valid, she needed to stop being so dramatic and let it go. This upset Juliet, and she left the room in tears, refusing to talk about it further.

Was The Man In The Wrong?

His eldest daughter, who was 22 years old, told him that he technically wasn’t wrong but shouldn’t have said it that way. The man was unsure if he was in the wrong for how he responded to the situation.

One person said, “You aren’t wrong at all, it is just a dress. I really thought this story would be going somewhere else, but trash-talking a girl for buying the same dress in a different color is horrible. And it is a type of bullying if she’s doing it to the point where a teacher calls you about it. Honestly, I’d tell my child if she kept this up then I’d cancel the prom because it’s not that serious at all.”

Another Person Commented

Another person said, “The only thing that would make me understand Juliet’s perspective a bit more here is if she posted the picture of her dress first. If Juliet had already posted (with the understanding that the dress style was claimed) and the other girl then came in and bought the same dress, I can see why she would be upset. Since it is so out of character to behave like this and Juliet is refusing to change her dress, I am guessing something like this happened.”

He Provided An Update

In an update, the man thanked people for their comments and acknowledged that something else might be going on. He had another conversation with Juliet, where she revealed that the dress wasn’t the real issue. She admitted feeling weird about prom and her senior year overall because she missed her mom and wished she was there for these milestones.

He comforted Juliet, understanding the impact of her mom’s passing when she was young. He held her while she cried, and he realized that she struggled with her mom’s absence more than he had known. Juliet agreed to apologize to the girl for even asking her to change the dress and promised to stop talking negatively. He advised her to speak with him about her feelings in the future.
