Dear Fonseca,

My daughter is getting bullied at school because she has a knockoff Stanley Tumbler. The other girls at school all have real ones including the new pink one. They are making fun of my daughter because my husband and I got her a generic bottle from Walmart. I told my husband we should just go and buy a real one so the teasing will stop. He says we shouldn't. My husband thinks our daughter needs to grow thick skin. He says our family can't be intimidated by a bunch of 9 and 10 year old girls. I think buying my daughter a real Stanley will make things easier for her. He says she needs to learn that life is sometimes not easy. What would you do if you were us? I've seen other parents posting online who are in the same position as us.
