I have not done one in a while and this really caught my attention. A 10-year-old girl from Utah was bullying another child about how she dressed to the point that the little girl no longer wanted to attend school. Her step mom had a little talk with her. Apparently that didn’t work very well, so she took it one step further.
One evening she drove to the local thrift store and bought her some clothes and shoes. The next morning the little fashionista was told that was her wardrobe for the next few days. In school she was ridiculed, laughed at, and whispered about. The young girl came home to tell her stepmother that she now understands what she did was wrong. Although she still had to wear another outfit the next day.
Good for her. When she realized that talking wasn’t enough, she decided that step daughter needed to shown the hard way how damaging this is to others. This may have been the hard way to learn the lesson, but sometimes that is the only way to show your kids the lessons that must be learned to be a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted adult.
I would do this in a heartbeat.
