Maybe dads aren’t used to their little girls wearing makeup, but that’s no excuse for this behavior.
Whether his daughter put the makeup on herself or had someone apply it for her, she didn’t deserve to be harmed for it.
It’s one thing to tell your daughter that you don’t like it when she wears makeup, or that she’s not allowed to wear it. It’s another to physically hurt her for something that can wash off with soap and water.
I don’t know what kind of makeup she had on or why her dad felt so strongly about it, but I hope for both of their sakes that they find peace in what happened.
