Here are four stories about the Redditors who was being kicked out from their house by their parents, and the efforts of their parents, asking for forgiveness years after their abusive and terrible treatment to their children.
FATHER ASKED FOR HELP AFTER YEARS OF ABUSIVE TREATMENT
A Redditor had shared his story on Reddit’s “AITA” subreddit, in 2019, about how his father had treated abusively, and begged for help years later.
“Growing up, my father used to kick me out alot. We were dirt poor, living in a townhouse in a bad end of town. I’m asian, and as the old stereotypes for asian fathers go, he used to be super strict about marks. Every time I got anything lower than a 70, he’d kick me out, if I was late to class and he found out, he’d kick me out, if I was late coming home before curfew, he’d kick me out.”
“No matter how much I begged and pleaded, he’d toss me outside and throw a sleeping bag onto the lawn- it didn’t matter what the weather was, it could be snowing or raining and he would still send me out. I used to sleep on the streets until around 16 when my friend would let me stay over at his.”
“He kicked me out at 18 and I didn’t come back home. I stayed at my friends place and worked everyday until I had enough to pay for schooling, and haven’t talked to my father since. I’m 29 now and got a lovely wife and a kid on the way.”
“A couple days ago, my mother died and my father came to visit to apologize for everything that went on when I was younger. It felt really sincere until I remembered that he lost his convenience store about 7 years ago, and his pension had gone to shit. I asked him why he was really here, and he begged me to let him stay at our place.”
“I went inside, grabbed a sleeping bag, and threw it on to the lawn and went back inside.”
WOMAN TOOK REVENGE FROM HER MOTHER, AFTER SHE WAS KICKED OUT OF THE HOUSE AT THE AGE OF 16
The Redditor, had shared her story on the Reddit’s “TrueOffMyChest” subreddit a year ago. She was kicked out from her mother’s house when she was 16. The reason for her mother kicked her out was terrible, as the Redditor wrote, “I went to live with dad at 16 because she told me she hated me and kicked me out. My older brother, the golden child, I know for a fact has a spare bedroom she could sleep in now that she’s losing the house.”
“My moms situation is entirely her own fault as well, which makes this all the more annoying. She and my stepdad bought a 7-bed room house 10 years ago, right after she left her job of 20 years to work at some stupid start-up that was out of business only 3 years later.”
“My stepdad spent the last years of his miserable life bed-bound because he ignored every doctor telling him to stop shoving his face full of food at every waking moment of the day. So, he died 500 pounds and in misery. I was more than fine with this by the way. Well, when he died early this year it pretty much drained the last of the money my moron of a mother had remaining, and now the banks taking the house back.”
After years of neglecting, the mother came back asking for a shelter from her daughter.
“I told her she could live with us, if, and only if she decided to follow the house rules.” The Redditor said, and here are the rules she put:
“All electronics were to be turned off by 6 pm. If she was caught with any after that they would be taken away and sold at the next yard sale.
> Bedtime was 7:30, if I caught her up I would take away all of her clothing for the week.
> She may only shower for 5 minutes, once every three days
> All chores must be done the moment she wakes up. If I roll out of bed and they are not she will not be getting meals for the day.
> She must make sure she is alert at all times, if I and hubby need something done, IT IS TO BE DONE AT THAT MOMENT, or else she will lose her bedding privileges for the night.
> She will be in charge of cooking one meal each day, that I choose, if it is not made to my liking she will not be allowed to join us and instead will eat the cheapest frozen meal available.
> I will be reading all her mail, text messages, and emails. I will give her the ones I deem acceptable communication under my roof.
> Her car will be my own personal travel car, she will also drive me where ever I want. She will still have to pay for gas.
And, last but not least.
> If at any point she displeases me, I will be calling my brother up to pick her up from a nearby gas station. I will get to choose what she takes to put in a torn-up backpack before dropping her off without looking back.”
As the woman said that these conditions were inhuman, and stormed out. The Redditor explained that she lived in these conditions for years, and when the person who made her live in these conditions faced with the consequences, she left, and the Redditor had no idea where she left.
THE PARENTS KICKED HIM OUT OF THE HOUSE, AND YEARS LATER THEY WANTED TO MOVE IN WITH HIM AFTER THEY LEARNED THAT THE REDDITOR HAD A SUCCESSFUL LIFE
The Redditor had shared his story on Reddit’s “AITA” subreddit, two years ago. The man explained that he was 17 when he was kicked from the house, where for his parents the only acceptable career was having a medical career.
“I turned 17 and told my family I was NOT going to be a doctor but to build an acting career / social media career (youtube wasn’t huge then) and supplement my income with small business endeavours. When I told my family this they kicked me out and we subsequently lost contact for 17 years.” The Redditor said.
“During time they moved to the UK and my sister became a doctor and my older brother got into a very competitive stream for surgery (neurosurgery specialising in spinal tumour diagnosis and removal), which he has now finished. We reconnected when COVID hit and they told me they were moving back to Sydney for lifestyle reasons and because my brother has found a $750k a year job.”
In the last years, they never asked what the Redditor did with his life, and they were just thinking that OP was struggling with his life in poor conditions.
“To their credit they were correct in that I didn’t “make it big” in acting (maybe the world wasn’t ready for a main stream leading role Indian…), or make it at all. I did however “make it big” as an investment banker and recently made partner at the bank I work.”
“This came to head on Friday when I met them for house shopping (I walked to meet them, and when they asked about my car, I just said I preferred to walk), and they realised the areas they wanted to live; despite being highly paid medical professionals, simply wasn’t going to be happening, as the houses cost north of $20m. When we decided to call it a day and regroup they suggested going to my place before going out to dinner.”
“When we arrived at my house they thought I was renting a room and enquired how much rent was, I informed them that I wasn’t renting and that this was my house. They lost it, accusing me of lying to them for years and only meeting up to rub their face in my “probably illegally gained” wealth, and capped it off by informing me that they’ll be living with me now instead of with my oldest brother, since they can’t be seen living in a worse house then their son.”
“I laughed at them and reminded them that they bet on my brother and sister not me, and that they have a better chance of living with my neighbours than me. At that point they threatened to “cut me out of their will”, to which I reminded them of the fact that they can’t even afford to buy it my area, so their will and assets don’t really matter to me.”
A REDDITOR WAS KICKED OUT OF HIS FAMILY HOUSE BY HIS MOTHER AND HER BOYFRIEND, LATER THEY NEEDED HIS HELP
In the last story, the Redditor who shared the story had posted his story on Reddit’s “AITA” subreddit, on the 24th of January, 2024. The Redditor explained that after her mother had let her new boyfriend move in with them, she drastically changed in their relationship with the Redditor.
“I tried to make a good impression because I wanted her to be happy but the guy just seemed to have an issue with me. He convinced my mom to start charging me rent because I had a part time job while still in school even though he was jobless and living off my mom.”
The boyfriend would go into OP’s room, and go through his belongings without asking for a permission. He even broke the laptop of the Redditor, and his mother did nothing, despite she was aware of what happened.
“She would yell at me whenever I complained about how I didn’t like him invading my privacy. He seemed very pleased with himself when my mom kicked me out.”
“I didn’t have enough to get a place so I survived by sleeping on friends couches as much as I could until they got tired of me and I had to sleep outside at times. Thankfully I was able to get a second job through someone I knew and I was able to save up and I just moved into a new place at the beginning of this month after months of not having anywhere to call home.”
“A few days ago my mom’s boyfriend reached out to me. Apparently my mom had a stroke and he tried guilting me into moving back to help her out because he got a job opportunity and has to move. I declined and told him that unfortunately I’m too busy trying to be an adult, it doesn’t look like I can take time off that schedule to do that then hung up.”
