There is no day more special in any child’s life than the day of their birth! They wait the whole year for this important day when their friends and loved ones celebrate them. At that age, nothing is more exciting than to turn another year older. When it comes to children with separated parents, they might even get the opportunity to hold two celebrations! Kelsey Frederick is one such teenager with divorced parents. Her parents Schaffen and Christin appeared to have zero problems coordinating two birthday parties for their precious daughter. However, something came up on the big day. What could have possibly happened?

Two Parties For One Teenage Girl

Kelsey Frederick was about to turn a special age. She was going to be 13 on her birthday, which meant she was finally a teenager! She was looking forward to her two parties, one with each parent. This was a tradition she has gotten used to over time.

Kelsey was hoping this year would stand out from all of the rest. This birthday was special, she was growing up and thought the party should reflect that. A sleepover with a few good friends could be a fun idea, right?

Highlights

What made it even more special was that her mother was paying to put highlights in her hair for the first time! A lot of the girls at school were starting to get highlights, and Kelsey wanted to try them out as well!

Off To Dad’s House

After spending some time glamming up in the salon, she headed over to her father’s place. However, let us just say no one could have predicted what his reaction would be like…

She’s Not Alone

There are countless young people who have two families like Kelsey does. She gets to spend a lot of time with both her parents. Their divorce contract states that both mom and dad get an equal amount of time with their daughter, so that’s how it goes!

She’s Not Alone

Always Fun

Each weekend she is with a different parent, so things don’t ever really get boring for this soon-to-be-teen! Kelsey especially enjoys going to baseball games when she’s with her dad. Her two younger brothers also always join the mix, always giving Kelsey a laugh or two.

Always Fun

Mother And Daughter Duo

Many young kids only wish to have a relationship with their moms similar to the one Kelsey has with her own mother. Christin and Kelsey do not just live together – the two of them are basically the best of friends!

A Close-Knit Bond

This is the kind of relationship we can only dream of having. Kelsey feels like she can talk to her mom about everything! We bet this young lady is super glad to have such a good mother who is there for her to turn to whenever.

A Different Kind Of Relationship

Although she and her father also get along with each other well, it’s not the same. He does not seem to enjoy hearing about her stories of youth the same way as her mother does. Kelsey also spends a lot more time with her mom than her dad.

A Different Kind Of Relationship

A Family Affair

When Kelsey was young, her parents, Schaffen and Christin, split. It was very hard for Kelsey since she was so little, but it was nice to have a big family and always be surrounded by cousins and siblings. Without a great support system in place, the divorce may have affected Kelsey much more.

Sports Gal

Kelsey has been into sports since she could walk. Continuing to do something she loves helped keep her grounded through the big changes going on in her life. Her parents made sure to keep Kelsey’s life as similar as possible to how it was before the divorce.

In Agreement

Kelsey is also lucky that her parents stayed friends, maintaining a good relationship fo their daughter’s sake. They were mostly in agreement on how to raise their daughter as well. They sat down and made a set of rules and guidelines they both agreed to follow when disciplining and raising Kelsey.

A Little Fish

It may seem like something small, but the pair decided to take Kelsey to nearby Lake Erie every month, just the three of them. Their daughter so enjoyed when they all used to do this fun outing when she was just a young girl, so they decided it needed not stop.

New Love

Not long after the divorce, Kelsey’s father found love with a different woman, a colleague of his at the fire station. This was okay by Kelsey, she actually liked her dad’s new girlfriend a lot.

It’s Official

He soon proposed and the two tied the knot at the local courthouse. They still decided to dress up to celebrate the occasion but decided to forego a big, expensive ceremony. Kelsey couldn’t be happier for her father.

The Deal With Her Dad

Schaffen’s new wife was not an issue at all between Kelsey’s parents as long as she or their relationship did not interfere with the way they had to team up to raise their daughter.

Nothing Would Change

The way they agreed to parent their daughter would not change now that Kelsey had a step-mother, that was for sure. Kelsey was perfectly fine with the whole idea. As a matter of fact, she was happy that her dad was happy!

Nothing Would Change

Strong Women All Around Her

Kelsey was accustomed to being around strong women since they were constantly around her growing up. She had her Aunt Kelly, who was around often and served as a second mother to her. There was also her godmother Haylee Ann who played an important part in Kelsey’s life.

Endless Maternal Figures

Both women never failed to give her advice and new perspectives with all of their stories and experiences. With many maternal figures in her life, Kelsey was not threatened by her father’s new partner.

Close Proximity

Kelsey was lucky her mom lived in Fostoria, Ohio and so did her dad and his new wife. Thanks to their close proximity to one another, they could make Kelsey’s birthday one to remember. All three are going to play a huge part in the surprise that unfolded on this special girl’s birthday.

A Challenge

It is always difficult to choose a gift for such a young girl, but Kelsey was even more challenging than her peers. Her hobbies were not the typical things girls that age enjoy, making it hard to pick a practical gift.

Screenshot 142

A Challenge

No Glitz

Kelsey just had one simple request: no glitz. She wasn’t a so-called “girly-girl”, so she didn’t want her gift to be anything too pink or sparkly. Her mother enlisted the help of friends and family to pick something Kelsey would absolutely love.

No Glitz

Not Like Other Girls

Kelsey was a softball player, but she already owned everything the sport required. She also loved to fish with her cousins, but it would be hard to give fishing gear during a party, and she had all the fishing gear required anyway. Moreover, she was already a happy girl. What would she like?

Something A Bit Cheaper

Kelsey had been wanting a Mia Hamm jersey for quite a number of years now, but they were just way too expensive for both Christin and Schaffen to afford right now. They had to think of something more in their price range.

Something A Bit Cheaper

Taking Forever

Kelsey felt like her birthday was taking a lifetime to get there, which is not all that unusual at that age. Pretty much every single 12-year-old counts down the seconds until they officially become a teenager. Kelsey and her friends from school began searching cool party ideas on the Internet.

An Important Milestone

Christin could hardly believe that her lovely daughter was growing up right before her very eyes. Had it really been 13 years since she gave birth to Kelsey? Now she knew what people meant when they said, “time flies”!

This birthday was an important milestone in her life, so Christin wanted to pick a special gift. All the celebrations that came before this one always involved a surprise of some sort. However, she also wanted to give Kelsey the opportunity to choose what she wanted.

A Beauty Queen

Like most young girls, Kelsey loves to do hair and make-up with her friends. She was always excited when the family was invited to a wedding because it meant a glam day! Christin obviously knew her daughter loved makeup, she did always borrow her mothers! However, she did not expect what Kelsey asked of her.

Highlights For My Birthday

Kelsey said, “Mom, I want to get highlights for my 13th birthday”. The teenager was hoping to spice up her brown hair with some blonde highlights. How would Christin respond to such a request?

Worried

It was a normal enough request, but no mother is ever prepared for the day her child asks for a major makeover. Christin became worried that Kelsey wasn’t confident with the way she looked, so she began to worry a bit.

But, Christin couldn’t forget that she herself had been getting highlights long before Kelsey was born. Maybe her daughter was just influenced by her mother’s own actions. She decided there was no real need to worry.

Darker

Christin was a little taken aback, although she made the offer for Kelsey to pick whatever she wanted, so she knew she could not refuse. Kelsey’s hair had darkened over the years, and people got highlights all of the time. It was no big deal. Christin was a bit nervous, but luckily, she figured out exactly what needed to be done.

A Great Big Sister

Christin didn’t just comply because it was Kelsey’s birthday, she also did because of her daughter’s actions. Kelsey has 3 younger brothers and she’s a great big sister to them. She always helps out and serves as a great role model for the boys.

Mom And Daughter Bonding Session

Christin decided to go all out and let Kelsey experience the royal treatment for her birthday. The two of them did not know what to expect, so they decided to turn this exciting but nerve-wracking procedure into some mother-daughter time at the salon.

Nails Too

Good thing the local salon where Christin has been getting her hair done for years also offers manicures, pedicures, and massages. Kelsey was in for quite a big birthday treat! Since Christin was a loyal customer, they also gave her a nice discount.

Mom and daughter ended up getting matching manicures and pedicures. What could be better! Little did Kelsey know though, something else was about to happen, and she had no idea it was coming…

They waited for her transformation and hoped for the best. After spending a long yet relaxing day together, Christin showed Kelsey the mirror. At long last, she could finally see the result. They were both in for quite a surprise…

Could Not Believe Her Eyes

Kelsey took a look at herself in the mirror and could not believe what she was seeing. The highlights changed the way she looked! Even Christin could hardly recognize this girl. However, she had to say that she had never seen Kelsey look so beautiful with that smile on her face.

Christin had a surprise up her sleeves that Kelsey did not see coming. She wasn’t just getting her daughter’s hair and nails done…she was also going to get her makeup done! Thought that was exciting enough? They were going to none other than makeup superstore, Sephora!

Christin snapped a photo of the apple of her eyes after all of the treatments and posted it on Facebook for all of their friends and family to see. The two of them did not know how a certain someone reacted to it, but they remained blissfully ignorant at that time.

Next Stop Is Dad’s Place

Kelsey was eager to go out and show off her new hairstyle to her friends, but she had to go to her dad’s place first. He was also ready to shower his lovely daughter with love and gifts but knew he had to wait for his turn with her.

His Turn

Christin was happy enough to send their darling over to her ex-husband, so they hopped into the car and drove over to Schaffen’s place. The plan was that Kelsey was going to stay at his home for the entire weekend. It was only fair she split her time with both parents.

Screenshot 17

His Turn

Something Smells

Whenever Kelsey spent some time with her father, she typically stopped using her phone. Since she split time between her mom and dad, she always made sure to make the most of her time with each parent. Christin had no reason to hear from the teenager. But she woke up that morning with the feeling that something wasn’t quite right.

Something Smells

Mother’s Instinct

Christin tried to convince herself not to worry, but a mother’s instinct is always best, right? The minutes slowly ticked, but today was finally the day Kelsey would be coming back to her mom’s house. She wondered how her daughter was enjoying her new do!

Screenshot 51

Mother’s Instinct

Who Was She?

When Kelsey finally rang the doorbell several days later, something odd had happened. Christin did not even realize the girl ringing the doorbell was actually her daughter! Kelsey’s face was not only swollen and puffy from crying, but something else was off. What could it be?

Screenshot 52

Who Was She?

What Was It?

A million things raced through Christin’s mind. Was Kelsey hurt? Had she gotten into an argument with her new step-mom? Did something happen to her dad? Maybe she spent some time at the firehouse because Schaffen had to work over the weekend? Christin knew it wasn’t her daughter’s favorite place but was that a reason for all of the tears?

Screenshot 121

What Was It?

Completely Different

Then Christin did a double take and saw that something was up with Kelsey’s hair. It looked completely different than it did when Schaffen had picked her up just a few days earlier. What had happened to their daughter?

Completely Different

Horrible Haircut

Not only were the expensive highlights gone, but Kelsey’s beautiful long locks disappeared as well! Had Kelsey had second thoughts about her new look, and decided to get rid of it all? Christin was shocked, she couldn’t even move or breathe.

A “Chop Off”

Her locks were clearly butchered away sometime during the weekend. A professional hairstylist commented saying, “what they did to that poor child, it’s a “chop off”, it’s a boyish cut with no styling whatsoever”.

A “Chop Off”

From Extreme High To Extreme Low

It did not make things easier that Kelsey was cupping her face in her hands and refusing to show her face. Clearly, the young girl was humiliated by what happened. Christin couldn’t believe it and didn’t know what had happened or where to go from here…

Self-Esteem Plummeted

In just a couple of moments, she went from feeling like the most beautiful and confident she had ever been to getting her hair chopped off on her birthday. Kelsey could not stand to look in the mirror. Her self-esteem clearly took a beating after the ordeal she went through. Christin knew she had to get to the bottom of this.

Screenshot 112

Fuming

Since Christin could not get her daughter to talk about it, she got in the car and drove to Schaffen’s place. Christin was fuming the entire car ride. She couldn’t believe the man she once loved would treat their sweet daughter in such a manner. On her birthday no less!

Screenshot 152

Fuming

How Could You

When she arrived at their house, she sprinted up to the door and screamed at her ex and his fiancé Sarah, asking why they let that happen to her daughter. Moreover, why didn’t they get in touch with her? Christin was so mad she couldn’t even think clearly.

How Could You

Apparently, they could not stand her new hairstyle and punished her for it. They thought the highlights were too precarious for her age. According to them, “actions have consequences”.

Against Her Wishes

Little did Schaffen and Sarah know, Christin was about to show them how true this was. Christin went to the police. The chief commented saying, “the mother was upset at how her child was being cared for. The haircut was done against the child’s wishes under the direction of the girl’s father and stepmother”.

Smile No More

Her smiling little girl was smiling no more. She couldn’t stand to see her sweet daughter in such a state. She also couldn’t believe her ex didn’t like it. It was simple blonde highlights, not blue hair!

Taking Her Frustrations To Facebook

She was beyond her wit’s end, so she decided to take out her frustration by shaming her ex-husband online. That was why she went on social media to give him a taste of the humiliation.

Christin wanted him to feel the pain he decided to inflict on a young and sensitive person on her birthday no less. She hoped by posting it online, Schaffen and Sarah would see how much pain their actions caused Kelsey.

When You Go Viral

However, it was not Christin’s intention to make a viral post. She just wanted her family and friends to validate that Schaffen behaved unreasonably…in all likelihood, it was her way to blow off some steam as well. However, the photos ended up doing more than that…

People Were Outraged

Can you believe that people shared it 24,000 times and it received 33,000 reactions in only a week? The online users did not hold back at all from talking about how they felt about the incident. Here is one response in particular.

For Kelsey, the replies to her mother’s post and the questions at school were overwhelming.The attention all became a little too much. This is only understandable, in the end, she is only 13 years old.

Outrage From Strangers

Well, Christin definitely received all the support she initially wanted and then some. This was more than she bargained for. People she did not know started calling what Schaffen and his partner did “ridiculous” and “disgusting”.

She was also not ready to show her face in the hallways at school. The haircut was bad enough, but now all of this attention since the Facebook post? No way. How is a middle schooler supposed to deal with all of that?

While her younger brothers were enjoying school, and her dad and step-mom went about their daily routines, Kelsey was hurting inside. She felt betrayed, humiliated and angry at what they did. They acted as if nothing had happened.

Theories And Speculations Abound

It was not at all unexpected that the people who heard about the story would feel critical about what Schaffen did. However, some of these strangers thought there was a bigger issue than an impulsive and controlling father. What was the problem?

She also said, “Another person, aside from the father, is at fault. The one holding the scissors. But, back to the father, why would they want to humiliate their daughter that way? That was crossing a fine line”.

The Highlight Problem

People who have children of their own had mixed feelings about Kelsey’s highlights after hearing what happened. It was fairly easy to see that others thought they would also be upset if their daughter got a makeover without telling them. Of course, this did not mean they excused the way the father reacted.

Unsettling

Many people said 13 was too young to start putting dyes on her hair. They thought Halloween was the time for this but by using wigs and wash-out hairspray. On the other hand, others said it was not a problem because it was only temporary. However, the chopped hair raised other concerns. This was the thing that made people feel unsettled.

Sympathy From Strangers

It was a good thing that these internet people knew how the young girl must have felt. Although Christin was receiving comments that talked badly about Schaffen, some of the strangers started to address Kristin since they felt sympathy for her. Some complimented her, others suggested different things she could do with her hair and shared other heartwarming sentiments. She took comfort in their kindness. Kelsey could not understand how these people could possibly understand her better than her father did.

Making Up For It

When the story got too much attention online, Christin realized she could use the clout to make things easier for the family. Since there were so many individuals reading and then sharing it, she thought it would be a great idea to launch a fundraiser that will help pay for her daughter’s new hair treatment. She created an account on GoFundMe to put more attention on the situation and asked readers to donate money to help make things right for the birthday girl. At that time, they did not know if this would work.

Some of the people who got wind of the story apparently thought there was parental abuse involved! Now that authorities were in the mix, Fox8 interviewed Police Chief Colby Carroll. What would he say?

Administrative Leave

It did not a long time before the authorities knocked on Schaffen’s door. They received suspensions from their firefighting duties at the Middletown Township fire department. During this time, they were placed on “administrative leave”. They did not want people like that working for them.

Consequences For Their Actions

There was an investigation, which ended in the local judges determining that the couple needed to pay a price as well. People argued some more if the punishment was too much for what they did. Others argued that it was definitely a criminal offense.

Aunt Kelly Helps Kelsey Out

Kelsey did not have the chance to get her belongings from Schaffen’s house before she was legally removed from the place. In all honesty, she did not feel eager to come to get her things because that meant she would have to see her father and his wife. However, it still meant that she had no choice but to surrender many things dear to her. To make up for this situation, Aunt Kelly created an account on GoFundMe to raise money so that Kelsey could live a normal life once more.

It took a pretty short time before the audience decided to show their support for the young girl by donating their hard-earned money. Aunt Kelly only had a target of a thousand bucks, but they go to nearly double that amount without any problems! No one could have predicted what happened next – an anonymous person made a contribution of $2,000 in one go, effectively bringing the total to $3,543! Now, the next question is this: what should they do with these donations from generous strangers?

Christin was aware that she could not have pulled this off without Haylee Ann. There was no way the salon could have known what to do if her friend were not there. She was the one who ensured that the fundraiser would go well and never failed to show her support for the mother and daughter, especially when things were going badly with Schaffen. After posing for photos on Salon Day #2 with all these lovely women, no one could have predicted there were more surprises in store for them.
