Mom Instills a Valuable Empathy Lesson in Her Daughter

Ally Olsen wanted to give her daughter, Kaylee, a lesson in empathy after learning that she had been teasing another kid at school.

11-year-old Kaylee is a fashionista who had been mocking the other girls’ outfits. Ally remarked, “She said, ‘You’re ugly, you look sleazy, you’re cruel.” “She needed to know how egregious her behavior was.”

So Ally took Kaylee to a thrift store and asked her to choose the worst clothes she could find. Kaylee had no idea at the time, but her mother planned to make her wear them to school for two days. Ally was being taunted about her clothing at the time, and she came to a realization. Kaylee told ABC, “I was like, why would they do that to me?” “I’m still a regular guy.” It makes no difference what you wear.”

She eventually apologized to the girl she had mocked, and the two are now great friends.

“We truly believe that if you experienced what this little kid is experiencing, you would have some empathy for her,” Ally said. “She grasped everything we wanted her to grasp. We couldn’t be more pleased.”

What are your thoughts on Kaylee’s parents’ actions? Do you believe that was an effective way of teaching her not to judge others based on their appearance?

If you liked the lesson in this story, please tell your friends about it.
