Father stands up for daughter against body shaming grandmother 👏

A father stood up for his daughter, who was body shamed by her grandmother. The grandmother forbade the 10-year-old girl from having any treats and made comments about her body, while the 6-year-old was allowed to have whatever she wanted. After the girl snuck a donut and was caught by her grandmother, the father called her and ripped her for inappropriate behavior. The grandmother's only response was that she had to take matters into her own hands because the father, the 'stepfather,' did not care about his daughter's health. The father bought each daughter a gift to take the 10-year-old's mind off things and decided that his daughters would no longer have unsupervised overnight stays at their grandparents' house. The father's wife, however, disagreed and demanded an apology for his 'explosive' behavior. Despite the wife's objections, the father stood his ground in protecting his daughter. Read on for the comments and reactions to this family situation.
