A man was shocked when he found out his daughter had bullied a girl out of school because of her skin color. But when he took away her social media, her 18th birthday gift, and her one chance to go to homecoming and senior prom, he was told he was being too harsh on her. But how else would she learn?
His Daughter Was A Bully
The man said, ‘My daughter, Sam, was a part of a group of students who bullied another girl to the point that she had to switch schools.’
They Couldn’t Believe It
Both he and his wife were shocked by his daughter. This certainly wasn’t the way he had raised his child. What made matters worse was the bullying was partially racially motivated. He couldn’t have been more disappointed.
She Had Been Racist
His daughter’s racism was by far the most disappointing part. He had raised three kids with his wife, and he thought they were kind and honest people. Clearly, his daughter had a lot to learn. But how could he appropriately punish her ignorance so she’d never do something like this again?
He Had To Punish Her
The man thought about how he was going to punish his daughter. He believed grounding her and removing her electronic devices was not harsh enough. That’s when he came up with an idea. One of the punishments would be that his daughter, Sam, would not be allowed to participate in her school’s homecoming event or go to senior prom.
He Took Away Her Car
He planned to gift Sam a car for her 18th birthday, which was coming up soon. But, after the event, he said she would no longer get one. Of course, his daughter was upset; not only was she not going to homecoming or senior prom, but she was missing out on getting her first car.
She Had To Delete All Social Media
But he didn’t stop there. The man told his daughter that she had to delete all her social media accounts in front of him or her mother. He wanted to ensure she deleted the actual accounts rather than just the apps on her phone. Sam couldn’t believe it.
She Was So Upset
His daughter was devastated. She begged her father to let her go to senior prom, stating it was a once-in-a-lifetime event. She also pleaded with him to keep her Instagram because she had invaluable pictures from the past that she would lose if the account were deleted.
It Was All Her Fault
But the man said no. The way she had acted warranted these consequences. She had been a racist bully, and he was extremely disappointed in her. He didn’t care if she lost some pictures, no matter how invaluable the memories they depicted were.
His Parents Were On His Daughter’s Side
During this time, the man’s parents were temporarily staying at his home while their house was being renovated. They told the man that they felt he was being too harsh on his daughter, and although she had acted terribly and had to be punished somehow, he had gone too far.
She Deserved It
The man said, ‘They think that making my daughter miss homecoming and senior prom and forcing her to delete her social media is far, far too harsh.’
Was He Being Too Harsh On Her?
He understood why his parents felt he was being harsh, but he wanted to teach his daughter a lesson. What she had done was awful; he didn’t believe she deserved to go to homecoming or senior prom. He was conflicted and asked the internet for advice.
And The Internet Had Something To Say
One person commented, ‘If anything, her punishment is not severe enough if she is complaining about being unable to attend prom.’
There Were Lots Of Opinions
Another said, ‘Give her an anti-racist reading list she has to complete (in addition to her school work).’
