Delusional Mother Demands Teen Girl Shaves Head To Appease Her Sister's Self-Esteem

Teenagehood consists of difficult yet formative years. We've all made mistakes during our teen years, some of them worse than others. In this week's "Am I The A$$hole?" thread, a poor teen girl made a terrible mistake when she decided to bleach her hair on her own, causing it to fall out. Hairdressers could do nothing for her, so the only option left was for her to shave her head. As devastating as that is for a teen girl, the mom asked her sister to shave her head as well in solidarity. As expected, the sister refused, driving the sister with the buzz-cut into even more hysterics. Redditors seem to unanimously agree

Dad Makes Daughter Do Chores In Return For Menstrual Products, Internet Totally Loses It

We all judge other people; it's human nature. Everyone thinks they know best, although they rarely do. The subreddit r/AmItheA–hole is a great place to go if you're feeling judgy, because it's practically full of people questioning their culpability in various situations, looking for public approval. Look, if you have to ask the public if you're an a-hole, then the odds are that you probably are one. Like the dad who posted, asking, "AITA for expecting my daughter to do chores?"

At first glance, you might think, no, chores are an essential life skill for children to learn so that they learn responsibility, cleanliness, and how to keep their own house one day. But the father goes on to explain that she does the chores because he has to "spend extra on my daughter each month not only for her extracurriculars but for her monthly supplies, so it's my way of having her pay me back. She cleans the shared living spaces and bathrooms in our apartment and cooks four meals a week. My brother said I spend twice as much on my son's extracurriculars, and by my logic, he should have to do chores too. I explained he didn't because I feel his could help him get into college, but hers were just a hobby, in my opinion."

Yep, that's right, this madman's sexist double standards is period-shaming his daughter into doing the job of a housekeeper while her brother sits by and does nothing. All while he blatantly disregards his family's attempt to intervene when his daughter leaves home (not surprisingly). Scroll down for the comments left by other Redditors who lost it at this backward, lunatic of a man who does not deserve to be a parent. As one user put it, "The 50s called, they don't want you either."

Abusive Mother Ignores Teen Daughter's Desperate Request To See A Doctor For Years

We hate gyno appointments just as much as the next girl, but it's integral to check in on our health once in a while. As adult women, we're capable of booking necessary appointments by ourselves. However, what are you supposed to do if you're a teen girl whose mom has been refusing to book her an appointment for years? That's exactly what happened in a thread posted on Reddit's infamous "Am I The A$$hole?" subreddit this week. When the girl finally mustered up the courage to book an appointment herself, her mother was livid and insisted that she pay for the appointment by herself since she booked it without her permission. Yikes. We definitely think the mom is in the wrong here, but what do you guys think? Scroll down for more context.

Nosy Mom Tries To Get Daughter Fired From Dream Job After It Makes Her Uncomfortable

A lot of the time we seek our parent's approval on things. After all, they used to be the only two people we looked up to. But after some point, you realize your parents are just people with flaws, who sometimes have opinions that you don't agree with, and that's okay. We are many to make our own decisions and even make our own mistakes. If you're an adult, and your parents aren't financing that decision, they don't really need to be involved at all.

One nosy mom decided she didn't like her daughter's new job and legitimately tried to call her boss and get her terminated. Now, her daughter, on the 'Am I the A-hole' page on Reddit, is seeking validation in her decision to ignore her mother's wishes.

Mom Wants To Know If She's Wrong To Blame Six-Year-Old Daughter For Babysitter Quitting

The world can be a scary and daunting place for kids. Learning to navigate their way through it as they develop emotions, opinions and feelings can be challenging. As any parent can attest, kids choose to throw tantrums out of nowhere, always at the worst times. Even though it's because they're feeling scared, insecure, or out of control, it doesn't make them any easier to deal with. So what do you do when your child misbehaves? Do you comfort them, or do you criticize them for acting up and use it as a teaching opportunity to demonstrate that actions have consequences? One mother faced a difficult challenge after her six-year-old's bratty behavior caused their babysitter to quit. She posted in Reddit's Am I The A-hole, asking if she was wrong for telling her daughter that her repeated bad behavior was the reason for their babysitter quitting...

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.

Father Cuts Off Young Daughter's Hair Because She Doesn't 'Maintain It' Properly

Parenting is one of the most challenging jobs in the world, especially when you're a single parent. Parents don't always get it right; in fact, most of the time, they screw up. But the sign of a good parent is one who can admit their mistakes and apologize to their kids when they get it wrong. One dad posted on Reddit, wanting to know how badly he had f*cked up when he cut his daughter's hair. He explained that he is a single parent and struggles to maintain his seven-year-old daughter's hair, which she refuses to take any responsibility for herself. After many discussions with her, he finally cut her hair, which she found very distressing. His mother and sister told him that it was the wrong move, but he is unsure. Redditors gave mixed responses, with many telling him that his reasoning was fair, but the way he carried it out wasn't OK. Below is his account; scroll through and tell us what you think. Is this bad parenting, or were his actions justified?

Manipulative Mom Makes Conditional Offer To Buy Daughter's Wedding Dress, Gets Trolled

There is a special place in hell for manipulative, narcissistic parents, but especially for those who try to ruin their children's wedding day. Case in point is this woman, who posted on Reddit's Am I The A-hole, asking if she is wrong to only contribute towards her daughter's wedding dresses if she picked the dresses they wore. Yes, lady, you are a massive a**hole. It sounds like a whole bunch of emotionally manipulative, controlling, self-centered behavior to me, and evidently, her daughters feel the same. The overwhelming majority of people replied to her post, expressing their disgust at her attempts to make her daughters' weddings all about herself and essentially forcing her kids to buy her approval. Below, is her shocking post and some of the comments that she received in response.

Five-Year-Old Raises $150 To Convince Her Parents To Change Her Name

When we're young we are basically testing our parents to see how much we can get away with. How late can I push my bedtime? Will my parents actually check my homework every single day? If I just ask for a toy enough times will it appear out of nowhere?

Another common question is, "Can I change my name?" It's a phase that a lot of children go through as they struggle to find independence in their highly constrained world. But what if it's more than just a phase? A 5-year-old girl named 'Charlie,' showed a lot of determination when requesting to change her name to 'Charlotte.' Her mother, Bri, made a Tiktok about it, and it quickly went viral.

These memes are for any parent raising daughters, who might be wondering where to find their mind again after they've lost it.
