Being A Good Parent
KMSP Fox 9
She was really overcome by stress. She wanted to be a good parent and teach her child a lesson, which she believed had worked. Her number one priority was to educate her child, so she wouldn’t end up being a mean girl, and she was going to do whatever it took to prevent it. Now, all eyes were focusing on her. Many thought she hit the nail on the head with her actions, others were completely shocked. Was she in the right or not? Only time will show.
Amazing Little Girl
Before the incident took place, Ally Olsen never really had to ground Kaylee, her stepdaughter. The little girl was an incredible child who was pretty well behaved and well grounded. She kept getting straight As, and was an incredible soccer player. The two had a good relationship, and they shared everything with one another. But as soon as Kaylee got older, everything changed. This 11-year-old child wasn't an innocent little girl anymore.
She Loved Fashion
Kaylee started realizing just how much she was into fashion as time went by. She was now well into her pre-teen years, and was more than capable of pulling off stylish outfits, and Ally knew she was obsessed with fashion. The little 4th grader deemed herself a "true fashionista" now, and everyone in the family believed she might even start a career in fashion one day! But she didn't just focus on her own style. Kaylee liked to judge what everyone else was wearing too, including her classmates.

One unsuspecting day, Ally got an email that took her by surprise. It was from Kaylee's school, and it seemed like she had gotten into some trouble. The 11-year-old self-proclaimed fashionista had been bullying a girl in her class, teasing her about her outfits. She told her her clothes were "sleazy" and "ugly." Things got so bad for the poor little girl, that she didn't even want to go to class anymore. Ally was livid. How could her child be so mean-spirited?
She Tried To Talk To Her
Deep down, Ally knew that Kaylee was good in spirit, and that being young and naive would not let her realize just how hurtful her words could be. Maybe she was hanging out with the wrong crowd. So Ally sat her down and decided to have a little chat with her about being kind and empathetic. Kaylee was a smart little girl, and she seemed to be listening to her step-mom. But as it turns out, the message came in one ear and into the other.
