....But will it?
After those children get plastic surgery, would the bullying actually stop? Probably not. If a bully has a target, they will make fun of that person no matter what. Trust me, I was made fun of for the way I was dressed, so I went out with my mom and got trendier clothes. Yes, I was like the other kids, but the bullying didn't stop. I got made fun of for "trying to be cool" and when that person could no longer make fun of me for the clothes I wore, they went onto my hair, my braces, my glasses.... It is sad to say, that the kids who go through plastic surgery because of bullying probably will not have their problem solved. All that for possibly nothing...
It angers me that parents are relating elective plastic surgery to the necessity of plastic surgery for a child with a deformity. Really? There is no comparison. If a child has a deformity or was in an accident and needed plastic surgery to rebuild their lives, that is completely different than a perfectly normal child that is being bullied. It angers me even more that some of these parents are getting their children's surgery FREE from foundations that are for the child that has a tragic accident or is born needing surgery. I will just never understand because I would never put my daughter through that.
