Dad faces backlash over unusual punishment for teenage daughter: ‘Think of how she must fe

A father is wondering if he punished his daughter too harshly. He went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” to get a verdict on the matter. His 15-year-old daughter, Lily, loves fashion, but when she was caught bullying other kids at school the father tried to put his foot down. the father wrote, “we were told that if not for Lily’s exceptional academic record, she would have been expelled from school”. “We offered Lily two punishments. 1) No phone and no contact with her friends for however long we decide 2) No nice clothes for the same amount of time. She chose the second” . “I got a call from my sister today, saying that Lily had phoned her up in ‘floods of tears’ about not being allowed to wear the clothes she loves,” the dad explained. “Obviously, Lily needs to be punished for what she did, but I don’t like the idea of making our daughter feel upset and vulnerable”. Reddit users felt the father’s punishment didn’t go far enough. “Think of the other girl. Think of how she must feel. Imagine if she heard that her bully got let off easy,” one user wrote
