Hmmm...my initial thought is no but I the more I think about it the more I am not sure....

I personally think that giving plastic surgery to that bullied child was a horrifically inappropriate way in which their parents choose to react to the bullying their child was receiving at school.  I believe alot of the bullying issues are first learned by the parents of a bully at home.  Maybe bullying would be less of a problem if all parents were they themselves more open, friendly & accepting.  My conceptual therory is that if all parents where more accepting themselves of all the numerous different groups of other children in their child's school group maybe then their children would also be more open & accepting of all the several differant types of kids they are bound to meet throughout their school years!

That's really hard.

I do not agree with surgeries unless absolutely necessary so I don't know that I would agree with it.

 No, I would not allow it.

 i read it. i don't really agree to a point.  if it was my daughter, i would have agreed to the ear pinning. but that's it. i don't know if her nose really needed fixing or not, but the chin was too much.

The money would have been better spend on an anti-bullying campaign in the school/community.

Possibly. Bullying can lead to suicide. It is coming too familiar.

 The link didn't take me anywhere. If the child had a serious deformity that for example affected her vision, etc, then I'd probably consider surgery.
