Cameras Capture Strangers Helping Teen Girl Play Ball After Dad Storms Off

After an angry dad storms off, hidden cameras capture complete strangers helping a teen girl play ball. That video of the act of kindness from strangers has gone viral.


Girls can do anything boys can do, right? In fact, no one believes in girl power more than the Lord! But what if you witnessed an earthly father telling his daughter that playing ball is a man’s sport and she should be doing girly things? Would you say something to this dad?

Hidden cameras caught a family helping a teen girl learn how to play ball after her dad storms off for the hidden camera TV show, ‘What Would You Do?’ The show, hosted by John Quiñones, puts strangers in difficult circumstances and records how they react.

This scenario played out at a batting cage where a young teenage daughter is asking her dad why she can’t play softball. She begs him to help her learn how to hit the ball when the father says she should be doing girly things like dance. Several bystanders are shocked by his words and even more shocked when he walks away from her daughter, leaving her there to crumble under the weight of his words. Some strangers are compelled to act on God’s compassion and grace to tell the young teenage girl she can do anything she sets her mind to.

At one point in the show, the cameras catch a group of young teen boys telling the father that his daughter can do anything she wants. It’s heartwarming to know strangers will step up and defend the weak against bullies in difficult circumstances.

This is definitely a hotly debated topic and it’s really interesting to see it play out on screen. What would you do if you saw a father belittle his daughter in public? Would you step in to encourage her or would you help the father try to see it from a different perspective?
