For most parents, discovering their kid is being bullied might invoke the desire to hurt somebody's child.

It takes a special person to have compassion and see the bully through a different lens. 

Aubrey Fontenot decided to confront his son's bully, Tamarion, with the intention of getting to the root of the child's hostility. When the father asked what Tamarion had against his son, Jordan, the answer wasn't quite what he was expecting.

In an interview with KHOU 11, Fontenot revealed a phone call to Tamarion’s mother led to the discovery that the family was going through hard times and lacking stability. With this realization, Fontenot decided to step in and help where he could. 

A tattoo artist by profession, Fontenot purchased Tamarion new clothes and new shoes. In the video, an initially reserved Tamarion eventually radiates as Fontenot tells him to hold his head high.

Fontenot then decided to bring the boys together outside of school. While the initial interaction was a bit awkward, the boys eventually warmed up to each other and began playing video games. Now, Tamarion and Jordan even consider themselves friends. 

Fontenot told KHOU11 that this was a lesson in perspective and listening. 

“It taught me something," Fontenot said. "I was angry at first; then I said let me try something different."

The father also created a GoFundMe campaign to help the family get back on their feet.
