“My husband is 53, and we have been together for 10 years,” the 35-year-old began.

She had a son and a stepdaughter

“I have always cherished my 23-year-old stepdaughter as my own, but she doesn’t see it that way. However, my 17-year-old son completely looks up to her.”

Her stepdaughter had never accepted her

The woman explained that her stepdaughter had never warmed to her, despite her being a part of her life for a decade.

The woman also said that she’d repeatedly tried to help her stepdaughter stay on the right path in life, but her stepdaughter just wasn’t listening to her anymore.

Her stepdaughter had just graduated

Her stepdaughter recently moved back home after finishing her degree. She said it was temporary, as she was “finalizing a lease,” but three weeks had passed, and she was still there.

She didn’t like her choices

Her stepdaughter’s life choices were also beginning to bug the woman. She wasn’t happy that her stepdaughter would only eat processed food when there were healthy leftovers in the fridge.

The woman said that her stepdaughter worked night shifts, which was fine in itself, but she would constantly wake her and her husband up by showering as soon as she got in from work.

One of the biggest issues for the woman was her stepdaughter’s smoking habit. The woman had first caught her smoking at 15 and tried to warn her of the dangers, but now she’d sit puffing away on the porch. Even the woman’s husband was going out and joining his daughter for a cigarette.

But the final straw had come when she’d caught her stepdaughter telling her son that if he wanted to smoke, then he’d have to live with the consequences, but ultimately, it was his choice.

The woman got mad at her stepdaughter for influencing her son in such a way, but her stepdaughter argued that she’d been teaching about “decisions and consequences.”

She asked the internet

The woman revealed that her stepdaughter had stormed off to her room, her son was refusing to speak to her, and her husband was angry with her for shouting at both of them. She asked the internet if she’d handled the situation badly.

Few people took the woman’s side. “You sound puritanical, judgmental, and controlling,” said one. “Your stepdaughter is an adult. And she probably sees you as the woman who is barely 10 years older than her and who married her dad. I wouldn’t respect you as a parent either. You’re closer to a peer. Mind your own business.”

“She’s not 15,” pointed out another. “She’s almost as old as you were when you married her father.”
