24. Sounds like the kid got the bullying from home.

If he had just posted it to the accounts of kids she bullied, I'd be down with that. Show them their pain was recognized and appropriately punished. I'd have put a notice at the end that if she bullied them again, please let him know.

My daughter was always kind, loyal & considerate, but hung out one year with 2 alpha girls who were bullies and who were on her cheer team. At her birthday party, these 2 started in on one of Amanda's old friends who had gained weight and had an acne attack. A lot of the other girls followed their lead. Amanda came to me sobbing about this, because she couldn't get them to stop. She really tried before coming to me. I called the girls' mothers, asked them to come get them and sat them down, apart from the other children, where they had to stay until their moms' came. At the next cheer practice, one of their dads' came to me asking what happened (he had joint custody). He thought it was just normal behavior and laughed it off. I told him it wasn't normal, Amanda never ever was mean or disloyal to anyone, so no. Parents set and enforce the expectations. He talked to her teachers, realized the problem, reset expectations, moved her to a new school for a new start and took her to counseling. She ended up being an ok person.

Edit - fixed typo
