It may seem a little extreme but it is one way of confronting bullies.
Father Brad Knudson from Prior Lake Minnesota has posted a video on YouTube, to show people how his daughter was being bullied with racist messages via Snapchat.
Knudson posted a response to a video sent by the bullies to his daughter, via the video sharing platform.
He made the decision after his efforts to contact the parents of the children involved were unsuccessful.
He said: “We have a very beautiful African-American daughter that we were very fortunate enough to adopt 11 years ago.
“We’ve dealt with a little bit of racism, you know, stares, things like that when she calls us mom or dad, but she didn’t notice so we just blew it off because it was directed towards us.
“I just refuse to let her go through stuff like that, there’s no way.”
The nearly six-minute long video was posted on Monday night.
Since then it has gone viral after being viewed more than 1 million times.
Snapchats are deleted as soon as they’re watched – lasting a maximum of 10-seconds.
The app has a minimum age policy of 13, but does not require an age on signup.
It is important for parents to maintain an open dialogue and encourage children to share both good and bad online experiences.
Much like 14-year-old Dee Dee who told her dad about the bullying she was experiencing.
If you are concerned about your children using forms of social media such as WhatsApp and SnapChat then make sure you keep up to date with how the technology works.
