My Stepson Flushed My Daughter’s Formula Down the Toilet — Am I Right for What I Did Next?

A woman took it to Reddit after her stepson tried to hurt her through her 6-month-old daughter. He wanted to take revenge because she didn’t allow him to invite his friends to their house.

A woman’s 16-year-old stepson wanted to invite sixteen people to their house, but she refused because she felt it wasn’t safe for her infant daughter.

She consulted her husband, Aaron, before deciding, and he also agreed not to invite their son’s friends. However, the teenager blamed his stepmother for it and tried to hurt her.The 37-year-old woman posted her story on Reddit under the username Some-Issues3765. She shared that she was a stay-at-home mother while her husband often traveled to other cities because of his work.

Her stepson, Thomas, threw a tantrum when she told him that he couldn’t invite his friends over. He insisted she should allow them to come because he had already sent out the invites, but she told him he should have consulted his parents before sending the invites. She explained what happened next:

“He stayed upset and stopped eating for 2 days.”

“He’s 16 not 6 that isn’t acceptable behavior.”

Aperscapers shared that her stepchildren used to live with their biological mother when her husband used to travel because their mother enjoyed spending more time with them.

Another user named ranchojasper replied, saying she never minds keeping her stepkids with her when her husband travels during custody days. She added, “This idea that stepparents aren’t actually parents is bizarre to me.”

Most users agreed that OP wasn’t at fault.
