Some young kids just need to be put in their places and told NO from time to time, you know what I’m saying?
And that’s why this teenage girl asked the fine folks on Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page if she was wrong for not letting her younger step brother open her presents.
Let’s dig in!
“Before I start I’ll give some context
My (16F) parents got divorced pretty recently and my dad already has a new girlfriend (Sofia). Im sure they were a thing before my parents divorced so I strongly dislike Sofia. Sofia has two kids, Ainsley (7M) and Sierra (4F). Ainsley is one of the most spoiled brats you will ever meet while Sierra is way more toned down.
Now that the backstories mainly over here’s why I’m posting this
Yesterday was my birthday and while I didn’t have a giant sweet 16 I had a bigger than average party with my friends and family. When the party started It was super fun, but Ainsley quickly started his complaints.
I blinked for a second and he was on the floor crying and having a tantrum because he noticed the gifts I was receiving over the day. Sofia tried calming him down but he was too far gone. For some reason Sofia decided I should let him open my gifts and most likely just have them knowing her.
Sofia: “could he just open your gifts?”
Sofia: “it’ll calm him down!”
Me: “he’ll just beg for the gifts and cry when he realizes he can’t keep them.”
Sofia: “do you really need all those gifts anyway?”
At this point I was pretty p**sed because people bought these for me not a bratty 7 year old. I stood by my choice and the night went on as you could hear Ainsley sobbing like his entire family was just found d**d.
Sofia quickly told her whole family about what happened and most of them are saying I’m TA, including my dad, but I don’t think I am.
Here’s what Reddit users had to say about this.
This reader said she’s NTA and her stepbrother might be headed down a bad path.
And this Reddit user said this kid is old enough to realize that this is wrong.
Another individual said this is all on the girl’s mom.
