Taylor, Your dad is a wonderful role model for you. Do not pay any attention to
bullies as they are all loosers and have nothing good going on in their life.
This bullie is also a coward, does not have the guts to post their name. I can
tell that you are a WINNER and headed in the right direction. You are very cute
and have a fabelous smileGood luck to you and your family!
Often when we see our children or people we love being attacked our first
inclination might be to bite back, to find a way to stick it to the bully and
give them a taste of their own medicine. It's human to feel that way. I
know because it's happened to me before. Luckily I have never caved in to
those impulses and acted on them but the angry feelings fester for awhile. From
now on I am going to avoid focusing on the bully and instead focus on my child
or loved one like this father did and find a positive solution. The focus is no
longer on the bully and it's on the victim of the bullying in a positive
way. She now is feeling loved and valued. In addition, a lot of friends became
involved and were able to do a good deed and learn a valuable lesson. I love
I've said it once, I've said it twice, I'll say it once again,
Winner's never bully dawg, and Bullies never win.
Taylor, Sitting in my office in England, this story brightened a grey, foggy
morning. As the song, says, "(You) are of worth, of infinite worth, I know
that my Saviour loves (you)..." Remember that you are a child of God. He
only creates beauty, and you obviously have it. Always believe that. Brother Taylor, good on you. You did exactly what was right and good.
Sometimes it is better to just let the person learn that the lesson is,
"positivity always wins out in the end."To the bully, you
are also of infinite worth, and your Saviour loves you too. There is a
"Balm in Gilead," and it comes through the Atonement of a loving
Saviour. Please take that spiritual journey to your own Gethsemane, and feel
it's cleansing power. As one who has taken that journey, I can promise you
that the end is truly better than the beginning. He can heal you. He has
healed me on several occasions of different maladies.
I loved this story. What a wonderful dad this young lady has. She's very
blessed to have supportive parents. Keep your head held high Taylor.
Taylor, you must be one of those girls that has it all --- the great parents,
athletic skill, level head, and good looks --- and that is what this cyberbully
finds threatening. She wants what you have, and rather than emulating your
strengths, she tries to tear you down. I hope you recognize these tactics for
what they are. Don't ever buy into the unkind things she or others say,
because what they are really admitting is their own sense of inferiority. Come
to think of it, maybe this cyberbully needs 300 positive tweets sent her way to
cheer her up...
Bullies are usually people with feelings of inferiority and low self esteem.
They feel a need to tear others down in order to feel better about themselves.
What if someone sent a tweet to the bully telling him he was loved no matter
what messages he tweeted. Just a thought. The father took the high road. Good
My daughter was cyber-bullied for over a year by a past friend. It came in fake
facebooks in other names and including her name. This girl made threats of
killing her, burning up our house, cutting off fingers etc. Very specifics was
indicated knowing that this girl was watching my daughter sleep. She broke in my
house. She slit my window screens. Not only did she do this to my daughter, she
tried to get 30 or more involved. Of course it back fired on her and they ended
up testifying at her trial. It was hard to get the local police to move forward.
They really did not know what to do where it was all on facebook, emails, pinger
numbers from electronic devises, etc. Don't expect Facebook to help, they
are worthless. We won in court, she is in a residential treatment center,
hopefully being treated. For my daughter she is okay, I just have to deal
sometimes with her lack of trust issue. Don't ever give up. Two
years before we got some type of justice.
Tall, beautiful, talented daughter who is lucky enough to have an insightful,
I wish someone would tell me I was tall and skinny...alas another lifetime.
Besides already being a knock out, this young lady radiates inner beauty as
well. In a few years when she is a pearl and the world is her oyster, this
anonymous twinker will still a snarky wannabe. And if past behaviour is any
indicator, this young lady will still be gracious towards her no matter how much
she is to be pitied.
Taylor is very attractive girl. Technology? Used for such good purposes like her
awsome Dad used it for, but occasionally it just sucks!
This is fantastic! Good job Dad!
I truly don't understand cyber bullying - on social media I have unfriended
or blocked a few people that I just totally disagreed with on things they wrote,
why is that so hard to do for our youth?
My favorite story in a long time. Truly inspirational on many
I got "bullied" this morning when I tried to make a lane change and some
guy sped up to prevent me from getting it done. So I decided to respond by
slowing down and letting at least 10 people make turns into or through my lane
of traffic before I got to work. Maybe I should have gone for 50 but I would
have been late for work.
Hey --"Tall and skinny" wins volleyball gold medals.
"Tall and skinny" gets modeling contracts.Obviously,
jealousy rears its ugly head!Good going, Dad!
Someone once suggested that we need 50 positives to overwhelm one negative. I
hope she's getting enough messages, and I hope the anonymous tweeters get
some counseling for their snarkiness.
Umm.. this girl is beautiful.Jealous girls once again.
Love this story. "That's My Job" Conway Twitty..."Everything I
do is because of you, to keep you safe with me..."This father
did exactly that for his daughter, keeping her safe. Equally important and from
a Divine Roll perspective, he Protected his daughters's sweet sweet
heart.Godspeed to you and your daughter. Thank you for your
