A Redditor had shared a story on Reddit’s “AITA” subreddit. The woman had explained that she has a disabled brother, and she caught her daughter talking terribly about her uncle, so she punished her and she wanted to know that if she was too harsh on the punishment, because she ended up with kicking her daughter out.
OP had called her disabled 31-year-old brother as L. Her brother was born without a jaw. And she explained that he is her best friend.
After their mother passed away, before a month ago when OP shared her post, L was the one who got effected the most. Her mother was the primary carer of her brother. After her mother passed away, OP took her brother to live with her own family.
The Redditor explained that her own family were always close with L, as her chilren would play with him, and her husband would enjoy spending time with him. When their daughter, B, turned 20, she wanted to be more independent. Few days ago before OP shared the story, her daughter came home at a late hour.
As OP heard her daughter, she was going downstairs, and she heard her daughter say, “we need to be quiet so we don’t wake my r slur uncle up,” to her friend.
When the Redditor heard her daughter, she couldn’t believe her ears, as with her husband, they were trying to raise their children with good values.
As OP remembered the moments where she needed to protect her brother back in their childhood, she confronted her daughter immediately and said to her daughter to repeat what she had said about her uncle.
OP wrote, “I asked how she could say something so cruel about her own uncle. That this is not how she was raised and at 20 she should know how awful that is, and if she thought saying that to her friend made her look cool she was wrong, that she made herself look like an insecure bully.”
As her daughter refused to apologize, and said that it was not a big deal, OP asked her daughter’s friend that if her daughter could stay in her house, and that friend said yes.
OP shared, “B said I’m meant to take her side, that I’m her mother, I told her I have been L’s sister longer than I’ve been a mother. B didn’t think I was serious, I’ve always been a calm parent and I have never told her to leave the house before. I had every intention of having B back home, but she needed to learn a lesson that I meant that behaviour would not be tolerated. I apologised to B’s friend for being in the middle and I gave her cash to cover the cab to her house.”
And the story concluded as, “I called B yesterday, hoping she understood how out of line she was, she didn’t. She was unhappy that I took L’s side over hers. I told her to come home so we could discuss this properly but she refused. I have been in touch with her friend and B is still staying with her, so at least she’s safe. My husband said I was too harsh, but there’s still that protective big sister rage in me.”
