Her Son Is Smoking Weed and Her Daughter Is Being Promiscuous but She only Thinks Her Son Is in The Wrong

A 42-year-old woman recently asked if she was wrong for punishing her son for smoking weed but not her daughter who was bringing boys back to the house. Her husband disagrees. Here’s what she had to say.

The woman explained that her son, 17, is what you would call a ‘stoner’. She and her husband caught him smoking weed when he was 16, and they were extremely disappointed. They also found out that he was actually doing it quite frequently.

They had paid for half of his car, and when they found out about the weed, they made him pay it back, or else they would take away the vehicle. The woman has also considered kicking him out of the house when he turns 18.

The concerned parents grounded the son for several months at the end of the school year, and they checked all of his things daily.

The woman was very disappointed and shocked that he would do drugs, but her husband wasn’t as bothered.” [He] was a lot less disappointed and told me I was overreacting, but after some arguing, he left it and agreed with the punishment,” she said.

There’s an Issue with The Daughter

However, a new problem has now occurred. Their 18-year-old daughter has recently started bringing guys home more frequently, but since she’s being safe, the mother thinks it’s fine “because it’s her life and it’s her choice.”

Her husband, however, finds it outrageous and tells his wife that she is being too lenient and that she shouldn’t allow it. He’s even tried stopping his daughter numerous times.

The woman told her husband he was ridiculous as they could not control her life. “He told me that since I tried controlling my son’s life, this is much worse,” the woman said.

But the woman doesn’t see this way. She thinks her daughter is an adult, whereas their son is still a child, and weed is only legal for those over 21. The dad was so mad that he told her he would rather have a stoner for a kid than a daughter who sleeps around.

The couple has been fighting about it ever since but hasn’t been able to agree. The woman is now wondering if her husband is right and that she shouldn’t have punished her son. Or she should have spoken to her daughter about her choice of lifestyle.

The Woman Asked For Advice

On user said, “Discuss it with him. Screaming and grounding him for multiple months isn’t going to stop him. It’s just going to make him resent his parents and get better at hiding the weed.” 

Another said, “I think the car part is 100% reasonable. I don’t think kids should be learning to drive responsibly AND use drugs/alcohol responsibly at the same time.”
