Father Approaches Son’s Bully With Compassion, Discovers His Family Is Homeless


A Houston father decided to get to the root of a child’s decision to bully his son.

According to ABC13, Aubrey Fontenot was initially angry when he learned that his 8-year-old son Jordan was being taunted by a classmate named Tamarian. Instead of trying to turn two wrongs into a right, Fontenot decided to handle the situation on his own unique terms.

The tattoo artist obtained permission from Tamarion’s family to take the young boy shopping. During this time, he talked to the youngster to find out why he was mistreating his son. Fontenot then discovered that Tamarian’s family is currently battling homelessness and can’t afford to give the young student new clothes or supplies.

“I came with the energy that he was ready to receive,” Fontenot told ABC13. “Because a lot of times, just because you want to talk to me doesn’t mean I want to talk to you. But I think he just wanted; he was ready to talk to me. He knew that I cared. He saw it in my eyes.”

Not only are the two boys friends now, but Fontenot also started a GoFundMe for the boy’s family to find adequate shelter. Since the initial posting on Oct. 18, Fontenot has raised over $24,310.
