What an awesome mom!

I love to see stories that involve a parent not being a politically correct wimp, or one of those “my child would never do that” mentalities.  I’m happy to see that the school didn’t try to stop the mother from the punishment.  The mother understood that her daughter was no angel and took action.  I applaud this mother.

From Fox News:

A Utah woman forced her fiance’s 10-year-old daughter to wear an unflattering wardrobe to school after a teacher said the girl was bullying another classmate over the way she dresses.

A teacher at the Viewmont Elementary school in Murray last week emailed Mark, the father of Kaylee, and his fianceé Ally, explaining that she was harassing another student for three weeks, Fox13 reports. The last names of the family were not revealed to protect their privacy.

“She would take her out on the playground and call her names, and tell her she was a slob and tell her she dressed like a sleaze,” Ally told the station.

As punishment, Ally went to a local thrift shop and purchased around $50 worth of clothing that she thought her daughter wouldn’t want to wear. Kaylee said she cried when she first saw the clothes, Fox13 reports.

Kaylee added that students talked behind her back about the clothes when she wore them to school last week. Her teacher was notified beforehand and the punishment lasted two days.

“We did it because we wanted our daughter to learn something very valuable that touched home and touched her heart,” Ally said.

  1. I saw this on the news!!! That is the exact punishment the child needed. A dose of her own medicine. I bet if more parents were more pro active like this, there would be far less bullying going on. The mother did exactly the right thing!
