Because they lived a little way away, Jessica arranged to stay with them for the rest of the summer. She was looking forward to it, as they never got to hang out very much, so they could be able to spend time together for a change.

The woman said, “But not even one week into her stay, Jessica drove home upset.”

The problem was that on the first Saturday, her grandparents started getting ready for church, expecting Jessica to go with them. She explained her reasons for not going and said they could have some fun later.

The woman said, “I called my mother up, and she told me I was a terrible parent for raising a ‘soulless child.’”

She replied that Jessica was a grown woman who could believe what she wanted, but her mother told her they would both “burn in hell.”

“I’d rather burn for all eternity if people like you were in heaven!” she snapped back. She instantly regretted it, but her mother hasn’t spoken to her since.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to speak to her mother like that, or was it right that she stood up for her daughter and her beliefs?

One person said, “This is how parenting is done! You don’t have children just to have mindless carbon copies of yourself! Embrace them for who they are!”

Another person commented, “So glad you stood up for your daughter and her beliefs. Your parents are stuck in an old way of thinking, and that is unfortunate for everyone.”
