Nightmare Step-Son Poisons Step-Dad's Plants, Doesn't Expect A Punishment

Being a step-parent can be very difficult. Depending on how old the child is, it may take them a long time to warm up to you. Also, you can't ignore the fact that your relationship with them will really play a large role in your relationship with your partner. The two of you are probably some of the most important people in their life, so it would make things a lot easier for them if you have a positive relationship, but hey, life isn't a movie, and some kids are just plain evil.

Grandpa Gets Called Creepy By ‘Karen’ Mom After Hugging His Young Granddaughter

Each person's family has a different way of showing love for each other. Some families are full of hugs and cuddles, some are full of trust funds and lengthy FaceTime calls. You work with whatever you have, and then you can choose the dynamic for your own children when you start your own family. It's hard to say if there's a superior love language, but one thing is for sure, it is not your job to judge someone else's and make people feel ashamed for showing love in the way they choose. It's time people understand what circumstances really don't involve them.

Woman Intentionally Has Baby With Deadbeat Dad, Fumes Over Brother Not Backing Baby Financially

Cheers to this week's "Am I The A$$hole?" family drama! The original poster (OP) tells all about his sister who got pregnant with a deadbeat dude on purpose, even though she's still in school and doesn't have the financial means of supporting a baby. Even though her baby daddy told her he would support the baby, he already had kids with two other women who he failed to financially support. Nonetheless, she still had a baby with him. When she saw that he couldn't pull through on his promise, she demanded that her brother help her out financially. He said that it was her choice to have the baby, and therefore she has to live with the consequences. Most Redditors decided that he wasn't in the wrong, but what do you think? Scroll down for all the details.

Controlling Mom Freaks Out After Losing Access To Adult Daughter's Constant Location

As a parent, you never stop worrying about your children. They could be at school, at a party, at the doctor's office, across the world, even chilling upstairs in their bedroom, and there will always be a little part of you that wants to make sure that they're okay. Parents are meant to protect their children after all. But at some point, you need to loosen your grip a little bit. You don't have to throw them out the window like a little bird you nursed to health, but you do have to grant them partial freedom at some point to grow on their own.

Mother Calls Son 'Misogynistic' For His Fleeting Moment Of Disappointment After His Fourth Daughter's Birth

In today's "Am I The A$$hole?" thread, the OP is a wholesome dad questioning if he is misogynistic for being momentarily disappointed after his fourth daughter was born. However, it was a moment that passed very quickly, and he was ecstatic about his newborn right after. His wife asked him why he looked slightly disappointed after, and he admitted that he was disappointed for a second, but was so grateful for their baby girl. His mom told him she was disappointed in him for this moment of 'misogyny.' I personally can't say that I agree with the mom. After three daughters, I understand why he would be hoping for a son, and he still loves his fourth daughter wholeheartedly. We're humans, and sometimes we have fleeting emotions. That's okay. What do you think? Scroll down for more context.

Woman Calls Out Delusional Sister For Failing To Properly Homeschool Her Kids

In this week's "Am I The A$$hole?" family drama, two sisters are at each other's necks due to their different parenting methods when it comes to schooling their children. In the thread, the original poster shares how her sister decided to homeschool her kids because she had a terrible time in school as someone with undiagnosed ADHD. While OP agreed that homeschooling sounds great in theory, she claimed that her sister hasn't been properly educating her children at all. Apparently, all the kids do all day is roam around, watch TV, or play on their computers and iPad. When she tried to convince OP to do the same with her kids, OP said there was no way in hell, which deeply offended her sister. In my opinion, your sister is one of the only people in the world who can be real with you, therefore OP was definitely not in the wrong here. What do you guys think? Scroll down for more details into the drama.

Introducing someone to the family is a big deal. Sometimes they don't approve of your friends, they just don't vibe with them and it's incredibly awkward when you want to have people over.

Nightmare Mother-In-Law Steals Grandsons Journal To Prove He's 'Anti-Social'

Even though you're blood-related, it's not always guaranteed that you'll be tight with your family. Sure you probably have some stuff in common, but it doesn't mean you'll all be best friends or even acquaintances for that matter. Let's be real, we all have some relatives we don't vibe with, and that just don't understand us in the slightest. Everyone has that crazy aunt, or uncle, or in-law, it's basically guaranteed. All you can do is remind yourself that they're the messed up one, and not you — unless it actually is you.

Woman Calls Sister For 'Emergency' Babysitting, Even Though Husband Was Fully Home

It's such a blessing to be able to lean on your family members from time to time. Sometimes you'll need an extra hand while moving apartments, someone to water your plants while you're on vacation, and then of course a babysitter for the times you're in a pinch and can't find anyone else. These are all totally normal requests, but they're favors, and should definitely not be taken for granted. If you expect your sister to babysit for free, maybe wait for a time when your fully capable husband isn't already at home.

Fed Up Fiance Demands Bride Choose Between Him And Her Overbearing Parents

Reddit's infamous "Am I The A$$hole?" subreddit is always rife with drama at weddings and within families. A fresh thread we recently uncovered seems to have all the ingredients necessary for one juicy story. In this one, we've got overbearing parents trying to gain full control over the entire wedding, the bride-to-be who is blindly listening to everything they say, and her beyond pissed off and fed up fiance who wants nothing to do with their shenanigans. His future mother-in-law literally had the audacity to demand he change his best man of choice because she wasn't a fan. If that's not majorly overstepping her boundaries, we don't know what is. She went on to book a venue without asking either the bride or groom for confirmation. When we said this one was full of drama, we weren't kidding. Scroll down for more juicy details, and make your call on who the a$$hole in this situation is.

Toxic Mom Tells Daughter She Can Either Pay To Live At Home Or Leave

Having a big family can definitely be a blessing and a curse. You're never bored, but you also barely have access to any form of privacy, and sometimes have limited time to work on yourself. Depending on how functional the family dynamic is, having many family members can be like having a large support system. Or it's just like having a large responsibility. It's important to teach your children the value of earning certain on their own, but at what cost? It clearly should not be framed as an ultimatum.

Rude Girlfriend Complains At Family Wedding To Bride Because There Was 'Too Much Cheese'

It can be really difficult to have food limitations.A lot of people struggle with them every day for various health reasons. People are gluten-intolerant, vegetarian, nut-free,  lactose-intolerant, etc etc. When it's something you live with, you usually develop ways to ensure that there will be a food option for you wherever you go, since you can't really expect everyone to automatically be aware of and accommodate for your individual restrictions, especially if they're not life or death. However, some people forget that they're not the main character, and expect others to constantly bend over backward for them...

Grown Man Storms Out Of Family Birthday Dinner After There Were No Chicken Nuggets

A lot of people started out as picky eaters. For whatever reason, it's harder to try new things when we're younger. We become comfortable with one kind of food and it becomes our safety net. This is part of the reason why you can basically find the same 4 items on every children's menu. We expect this behavior of children, but if these limitations linger with you into adulthood, into your thirties... Well, it can become a bit of an issue.
