The hardworking mom had three daughters: 11-year-old twins and a 16-year-old. Their dad, her now ex-husband, used to spoil them a lot, but he was no longer around after their divorce was finalized a year ago.

The woman tried hard to find their dad, but she couldn’t. His phone number changed, and there was no way of finding out where he went. He also stopped giving her money to help take care of their daughters. She was a nurse and worked long hours to care for her kids.

When Christmas was approaching, she asked her daughters what gifts they wanted. The twins wanted a Nintendo Switch with the latest Pokémon game, and the oldest wanted an iPad Pro with a pencil.

She knew that she might not have enough money for these expensive gifts. But she wanted to be honest with her daughters. “I told my daughter that it would be extremely difficult to get an iPad Pro but I will do the best I can. At that point it seemed like we came to an understanding,” she said.

She had decided to spend a total of $500 for Christmas gifts. So, she bought a Samsung tablet for $160 for her oldest daughter. She planned to use the rest of the money to buy gifts for the twins so that each got an equal amount.

The twins were thrilled on Christmas morning when they opened their gifts and found the Nintendo Switch and Pokémon games, just like they wanted. But her oldest daughter was upset because she didn’t get the iPad Pro she asked for. She tried to explain that she couldn’t afford an $800 tablet, so she got one that was still good but less expensive.

Her Daughter Was Ungrateful

Her oldest daughter got angry. “She started yelling at me and calling me the worst mom ever and how she misses dad. I told her that if she misses her father so much, call him, knowing that at this point that phone number is disconnected,” she said. She tried to make her daughter understand that they didn’t have enough money and this was the best she could do.

The woman also threatened that if her daughter continued her ungrateful attitude, she would return the tablet. Her oldest daughter angrily went to her room. True to her promise, she returned the Samsung tablet to the store the next day.

But she felt torn inside. She started regretting her decision, thinking about how tough it must be for her daughters without their dad. She was unsure if she was too strict and if it was understandable, given the sudden loss of their dad and the new challenges in their lives.

One person posted, “She’s mad because she didn’t get an iPad Pro, period. If she had gotten it, Dad’s name would have never come up. She’s spoiled and tried to use her father as a weapon.”

Another agreed, “The kid is 16, not 6. She’s old enough to realize what her mother is going through and to understand basic economics and math. If it’s that important to her, she can get a job and buy her own luxury electronics.”
