Teen Refuses In-Person Apology from Bully: Demands Email Instead 😲

Picture this: you've been bullied at school, and the bully's parents find out. They call your family, inviting everyone over for dinner so their son can apologize in person. Sounds like a step in the right direction, right? Well, not for one teen who felt that this approach was more about teaching the bully a lesson than actually making amends. Instead of accepting the invitation, the teen demanded an email apology sent to their school email address. 😮📧

Teen Stands Ground on Email Apology 💪📧

This teen refused to participate in a dinner planned by their bully's parents, designed for the bully to apologize in person. Instead, the teen demanded an email apology sent to their school email address, taking accountability for specific actions. Despite the bully's mom insisting on an in-person apology and the teen's own mom disapproving of the request, the teen stood their ground. Was it the right move? Let's see what the internet has to say about this bold decision...🤔💬
