Entitled Mother Crashes Father-Daughter Camping Trip, Ruins It By Making It About Herself

Reddit's infamous "Am I The A$$hole?" subreddit never ceases to disappoint when it comes to providing all the fam drama. As per usual, we're so here for the tea. In short, the original poster is a teen who was excited about treating her dad on an all-expenses camping trip in honor of Father's Day. Even though her mom hates camping, she decided to come along and made the trip all about herself. According to the OP, her mom kept trying to get rid of her, even trying to get her to hang out with other teens at the campsite so that the two of them could have alone time. OP was not having it and eventually flipped out at her mom, who stormed out in tears. So, who's the jerk in the situation? Scroll down for more context.

Ungrateful Husband Angry At Wife For Leaving Him 'Stranded' When She Puts Baby To Bed

Parenting is one of the most difficult jobs a person can have. Many people amazingly manage to do it all on their own, but obviously the more help the better. Even though we don't live in 1952 anymore, many families still adhere to the nuclear family structure where all of the housework responsibility is loaded the wife. This structure is getting less and less common, but you'd be surprised how many people still find this to be the ideal...

Delusional Mom Fuming When Kids Won't Celebrate Father's Day With Jerk Step-Dad

Father's Day can be a tricky holiday when your parents are separated and you may have more than one father. And considering 50% of marriages end in divorce, this is not an uncommon issue. Luckily there are many ways to make it work. First of all, Father's Day always hits on the weekend, so you can split up the weekend and dedicate one day to eat one. Or you can split up the day, really it should all be up to the children, and who they view as father figures in their life. Blood isn't the ultimate bonder in life, there are plenty of children who very much look up to their step-fathers or non-biological fathers. But every situation is different, and you can't make your children call a random man in their lives 'Dad.' Sorry sh*tty step-dads of the world, the title can't be forced, it's something you earn.

Women Reveal The Moments They Realized They Were Turning Into Their Mom

As we get older. we assume different kinds of roles. We might go from being the intern to the boss. From the Student to the teacher. From a pedestrian to a driver. But one of the most common roles switches is going from child to parent. But your parenting habits don't come out of nowehere. We don't simply become parents, many of us completely shape-shift into our own parents. It can be difficult to realize at first, but it's kind of unavoidable so better to just accept it sooner rather than later.

Man Charges Ex-Wife For Asking Him To Watch Their Kid On Her Custody Day

Getting divorced when you have kids adds an extra layer of 'complicated' to an already difficult situation, and custody arrangements can get tricky. When you're not living with the person you're co-parenting with, figuring out your schedules in advance is crucial for ensuring adequate childcare backup if something comes up. If you have to rely last-minute on your ex-partner to look after your child on a day you were supposed to have them, it can cause stress and pressure, especially if they have to reschedule things. One dad experienced something similar to this and posted his predicament on Reddit's Am I The A—hole. He explained how his ex-wife had asked him last-minute to watch their child on her day after failing to sort out adequate backup childcare, which meant he had to miss work. He lost money as a result, and so he asked his wife for the money to cover his losses.

People Describe Their Funny Childbirth Stories

Giving birth is without a doubt one of the most beautiful miracles to occur every single second in this life. Side-note: Isn't that crazy? However, even though it is a precious thing, it is uncomfortable, painful, and gooey. I don't know about you, but my mom loves to remind me of that too. I guess childbirth/raising children are both one of those things that you never fully understand until you give it a go.

Disturbingly Creepy Pregnancy Photos From People Who Probably Shouldn't Be Parents

Parenting is a privilege that not everyone deserves — a fact which usually comes to light once these people have already had their children. But sometimes, you can tell that a couple has bizarre parenting ideas while they are still pregnant, and you can bet that things will only get worse once they've given birth. One telltale sign could be taking creepy, tacky, and cringe-worthy pregnancy pictures, like this group of soon-to-be parents below. I'm not sure who told them that it's a cute idea to dress your pregnant belly up like a basketball or to pose with a gun, but they were wildly misinformed.  Check out these horrifically awkward pregnancy photos below and cringe along with us.

Woman Accuses Her Father Of Having A 'Fragile Male Ego' After His Homophobic Comments

Living in 2021, you would think everyone would be past the whole "anti-gay" thing. Unfortunately not, and homophobia is still very much alive and well. While society still has a lot of work to do on this critical issue, the ways it plays out in family dynamics can be equally damaging in many ways. A woman posted on Reddit's Am I The A—hole, asking if she was wrong to call her father out on his 'fragile masculinity,' following a homophobic remark he made during her most recent visit. She had put The Wiggles on to keep her one-year-old entertained—her child's favorite show, but one which her father claimed was 'creepy.' His justification? 'Because, to sing and dance and smile like that as a full-grown man, you have to be gay. That's not the kind of people you want around kids.' Um, no, sir. Fully-grown homophobes like you are not the kind of people you want around kids.

Couple Blackmailed By Groom's Mother For Refusing To Invite Sleazy Uncle To Wedding

Planning a wedding is hectic enough as is. Some family members are more outspoken than others and think they have a right to say what goes on at the wedding, even though it should generally be up to the bride and groom. Introducing the family member in question on this Reddit "Am I The Asshole" thread: the groom's mother. The groom is refusing to invite the sleazy alcoholic uncle that stole money from his family and has barely been an uncle to him, but the mother won't have it. She's threatening not to come to the wedding, provide them with money for the wedding (which isn't fazing them), and not to talk to them after the wedding. To me, it's pretty clear who the a**hole is here, but what do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.

Father Demands Babysitter To Cough Up $2,200 To Replace Guitar Which His Child Broke

As a teen, babysitting is one of the best gigs you can get. Kids can be super entertaining, and you legitimately get paid to let them watch TV, or play Minecraft, or make TikToks — whatever kids are up to these days. It's always the absolute best when the kids are already asleep when you show up. From that point on it's just Netflix and snacks. (Much better than Netflix and chill)

Obviously, it's not all sunshine as daisies though. Some kids can be utter nightmares and really try to test your patience. But what's even worse than bratty kids are unreasonable parents.

Parents Admit Times They Really Thought, 'Damn, My Baby Is Ugly'

Having a child is a beautiful, magical miracle that many people feel very lucky to do. It also happens to be one of the most painful things a person could possibly go through, but hey, men are stronger than women right? I digress.

But then this alien creature comes sprawling out of your insides and you realize that thing is yours and it's pretty crazy. Obviously, it's beautiful, it's a baby! It's the purest thing ever, but damn they can be funny looking too. It's okay if you've had these thoughts too.

Father Son Pictures Sparks Debate About Toxic Masculinity

In recent years, the conversation surrounding toxic masculinity has sparked some critical debate. Society holds some pretty archaic views regarding the stigmas still attached to men who express their emotions or do things perceived as 'soft' or 'feminine.' Although awareness is increasing, there is still a lot more progress to be made. One father, Eric Owens, experienced this first-hand when he posted a photo collage on Facebook of him and his son lying in his arms over the years, including one when his son was a teenager. His post, which he captioned "18 years later and he still under my arm," went viral, with thousands of people commenting on it. Although many of the comments were positive, a good handful of them (mostly from men) was negative, stating how strange they thought it was for a father to show affection to a grown son— something only a mother should do. Someone posted it all on Tumblr, adding a rant about how this was a classic example of the toxic masculinity pervasive in society and people are agreeing. What do you think about it all?
