A dad has sparked a lengthy debate online after he revealed how proud he is of his daughter for retaliating violently on a school bully.
The unnamed father took to Reddit and explained that his daughter was bullied by another girl at school.
“My daughter has been complaining about some mean girl bullying her at school constantly,” he wrote.
“Telling her s*** like ‘don’t come to school anymore cause nobody likes you’ and ‘just die already’ and some other s***,” the father continued.
He also said that he had tried to end his daughter’s problem but because the bully was a ‘rich kid,’ they did not face any justice.
“Yesterday my daughter got harassed by this girl again and she ended up beating the s*** out of her.
“She slapped the s*** out of that obnoxious bully and said it felt sooo good. She’s of course now ‘in trouble’ smh. But I secretly keep cheering her on.”
He added: “If it wasn’t for my wife standing around, I would’ve high five’d her after we got home.”
The dad also said that he didn’t condone violence but said that it is sometimes ‘warranted’ and he hoped that it made the school bully learn her lesson.
But many Reddit users did not agree with him, with one person writing: “Parent happy their child assaulted someone…”
Another commented: “Go find a responsible ethical adult at the school and report that instead of assaulting someone.”
But others cheered for his daughter for standing up for herself, saying that they would also want their kids to do the same.
One person commented: “I would have to support my kid in this instance.”
Another said: “I’d encourage it. Who knows, maybe buy them ice cream on the way home? After all, the other kid deserved it.”
