You do realize that you're insulting someone in a thread about bullying, right?

I didn't make this thread to ask if she was being bullied. I asked if anyone else thought the father went too far to support his daughter.

Well that's the issue. If actual bullying was taking place than perhaps no. However, more than anything this seemed to turn into an argument between the parents and one parent outwitted the other (who sounded drunk).

Maybe the day your child commits suicide over bullying, you'll think twice about the "kids will be kids" mentality we harbor here in the US.

I do not. If the behavior of the offending people would have continued, it could have really taken a toll on the girl. I commend the father for taking action. However, if it were me, I expect that I would have gone to the school and spoken to the authorities there. These were children from the girl's school, so clearly it was a school issue. That said, I don't know that the school would have ever uncovered the atrocious issue with the father.

But the father went to school and they were investigating. Only it didn't help much. The bullies' father didn't want to talk with school authorities. So victim's father did whatever he could to help his daughter. He tried through the authorities, he tried direct approach with diplomacy. Not only didn't it work but became worse (with bully dad voice messages).

So no, Good Dad didn't go overboard. He did the right thing.

So many of you are missing crucial facts that have already been stated: 1. This all started because of a girl in his daughter's school - who didn't like her. This "mean " girl was over at the twins house and enlisted them to make those messages to the daughter. 2. Whether these things can be blocked or not - unfortunately kids don't do that - most just don't have the mindset to ignore these things. School and friends are their world, and this leads to the suicides we've seen in recent years.

Today's bullying is not the bullying a lot of us know from the past. We have probably all been bullied at some point in our life. I can remember going to school and just trying to stay out of their way - going to class using different staircases. But the bullying of today doesn't end at school. As soon as they sign on to the internet - it's smack dab in their face. A more mature child may shrug it off but most kids can't.

I don't think that the girl's dad went overboard. He tried to get assistance. He tried to talk to the twins dad thinking maybe he didn't know about their behavior - until he realized the acorns didn't fall far from the tree. He would have never gotten anywhere with the twins dad anyway - notice the KKK. https://twitter.com/deronpuro

It's unfortunate because I'm sure his kids are going to get the same type of treatment now - no matter where they move to due to the internet video but maybe they'll wise up. I also hope the mean girl's parents have a little talk with her.
