Dad shaves daughter’s head after she’s caught bullying cancer-stricken classmate

While we may cherish the idea of our children being flawless, the reality is quite different. Every child, regardless of how much we adore them, is bound to make mistakes.

This isn’t to imply that parents aren’t fulfilling their responsibilities; rather, childhood is inherently filled with trials and errors. It’s a journey where every participant, including children themselves, navigates through a learning curve, inevitably encountering missteps that they’ll later reflect upon with regret.

What truly counts in such moments is not the mistake itself, but the manner in which the child learns from it and progresses forward. Adaptability and resilience are essential traits that enable them to grow from their experiences and continue their journey of development.


The early introduction of punishment is a cornerstone in teaching children about accountability. When a child errs, they must face the consequences of their actions, ideally learning from their mistakes to prevent recurrence.

Punishments come in various forms and severity, ranging from mild admonishments to more impactful measures designed to leave a lasting impression.

In a recent case, one father’s response to his daughter’s misdeed certainly falls into the latter category. Upon discovering that she had been ridiculing a fellow student undergoing chemotherapy-induced hair loss, he took decisive action. The father chose to shave his daughter’s head, aiming to instill empathy by putting her in her victim’s shoes.

While his approach has stirred controversy online, the father remains resolute. He views his reaction as necessary to ensure his daughter comprehends the gravity of her actions.

The situation was further complicated by teenage relationship drama, with the daughter’s involvement intensifying tensions. Despite attempts to rationalize her behavior, the daughter’s lack of remorse deeply troubled her father.

Acknowledging the criticism he has received, particularly from the other girl’s mother, the father stands by his decision. He emphasizes the importance of teaching empathy and accountability to his daughter, regardless of public opinion.

“They were having an argument in class about stupid teenage gossip regarding my daughter’s boyfriend. At some point the other girl mentioned how my daughter’s boyfriend was just using her for sex (this was actually a big shock to me as I had no idea she was sexually active) and called my daughter a slut.

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.“Not how I’ve raised my daughter to treat people and it truly disgusted me to hear how she acted from her deputy principle. She showed no remorse. She tried to excuse her behavior by saying the girl in question deserved it. Again, I don’t care what she said, that behavior is inexcusable.”


The dad is open about the fact that many people – the girl’s mother included – believe he took things too far by forcing her to shave her head.

“I came up with the punishment because I thought my daughter had an extreme lack of empathy for the girl she bullied,” he explains.

“My daughter knows this, and that is what really disgusted me about her behavior. It demonstrated a complete and utter lack of empathy. I hoped that her going to school bald and walking a mile in the other girl’s shoes would teach her a lesson.”
