Man Throws His Own Mother out Of His House After She Disrespects His Stepsons but His Family Thinks He’s Wrong

A man recently asked if he was wrong for kicking his mom out of his house after she wouldn’t stop mistreating his wife’s sons. His family thinks he should apologize – but was he right to do so?

The man’s wife has two sons, who are 13 and 17. The man also has two kids, two daughters, with his ex-wife. They are 10 and 12.

The couple also has a two-year-old son together; all of their kids get along great, and each parent has a great relationship with their partner’s children.

The man’s parents love his biological children but have not come to accept his stepsons into the family. 

They treat them differently

“There have been lots of little things over the years that have shown how little they care for them. They have never once bought them a birthday present (my wife’s parents get my daughter’s gifts), and at Christmas, they are always given the most pathetic/cheap gift,” the man said.

It’s not always been bad, though. The man’s father has tried engaging with the boys and even attended a football game with them last year. They all got along great, went out for lunch, and had a brilliant time.

Recently, the man’s mother stayed at his house as it was his daughter’s 10th birthday.

“She stayed in the 17-year-old’s room, and he slept on an air mattress in his brother’s room. Not only did she never think to thank him, but she also tried banning him from going in the room at all when he occasionally needed to,” the man said.

One morning, the boy knocked on the door and asked the man’s mother if he could quickly grab his sneakers, and she angrily said no. “[She] wouldn’t even pass them to him,” the man said.

The man had to go in and get them to avoid any further awkwardness.

Despite this, the boy was still very polite to the man’s mother, but she would continue being passive-aggressive towards him during her stay.

A few days later, the 13-year-old boy and their toddler were playing outside with a basketball. At one point, the man’s stepson accidentally threw the ball a bit too hard and knocked his little brother over.

His mother got angry

“My mom had been outside and saw what happened and started to berate him and grab him hard by the arm. When his mom came outside to see why the baby was crying, my mom continued to say foul things about my stepson and called him an awful brother and dangerous to her grandson,” the man explained.

The mom wouldn’t let it go

When the stepson told his mother it was an accident, the man’s mom intervened and said he had done it on purpose.

The son was upset

When the man returned from work, he found his stepson sulking in his room. He went to speak to him and eventually admitted that the man’s mom had made him feel terrible the entire week. 

“[He[ asked me why she hated him and his brother,” the man said.

The man was furious

“This made me angry, and after talking with my wife, I asked my mom to leave and told her she wouldn’t be welcome back until she corrected her attitude towards my stepsons.”

The man’s mother got very angry and argued for over an hour before she finally left.

A few days later, the man got a call from his dad, who told him to apologize, but the man just hung up the phone.

His siblings also think he is wrong

“I feel I did the right thing to protect my stepsons, but my siblings are also upset with me. They think I’m wrong for treating our mom badly and overreacting. Even my wife thinks we shouldn’t have kicked her out but instead talked to her and given her a chance to change her behavior.”

He asked for advice

The man, therefore, asked the Reddit community for advice. Did he do the right thing?

Reddit responded

“100% NTA. Well done on defending all the children in your home. I am happy that your stepsons have a great step-parent in their corner. As for your mother, please make sure that she is banned from your house until she apologizes for her awful behavior,” one user said.

“NTA – Sure, having a conversation with her and giving her a chance to change her behavior would be a reasonable option, but you also have every right to ask people to leave your home, family or not.”
