Fourth grader forced to wear thrift store clothes to learn bullying lesson
(KTNV) -- A Utah mom recently found out that her fourth grader was bullying another girl because of the clothes she wore.
So, the mom headed to a thrift store to teach her child an embarrassing lesson in fashion.
It all started with a letter from the principal saying that 10-year-old Kaylee was bullying another girl because of the way she dressed.
The mom decided to let her daughter find out what it is like to spend a day in some else's shoes.
The fourth grader's wardrobe was replaced with outfits that her mom picked up at a thrift store.
After several days of having to wear the clothes, Kaylee says she understands the lesson her mom wanted her to learn.
This isn't the first time that a parent has taken drastic action to teach a child a lesson.
A Colorado mother recently made headlines after forcing her child to wear a T-shirt to school that said "thief."
Experts disagree on whether or not these type of punishments are effective or damaging.
Some experts say that public shaming can damage a parent-child relationship.
