When a father noticed his 9-year-old daughter, M, was starting to put on weight, he decided to take matters into his own hands. After discussing the issue with his ex, the child's mother, and not getting the response he hoped for, he chose to monitor M's eating habits and exercise during the weeks she stayed with him. However, his well-intentioned efforts have led to accusations of 'emotionally damaging' his daughter. 😟 Let's dive into this rollercoaster of a story.
