Internet slams dad after taking niece on vacation and not daughter

The internet is mobilizing against a man who took his niece on vacation and not his daughter.

Posted on Reddit’s popular “AmILeA**hole” forum, using account u/throwaway63618293, a man shared his story and let the “AITA” community decide if he should be considered the hole**hole in his situation. . The post has over 8,000 upvotes and 2,000 comments.

The Redditor has a 14-year-old daughter he calls “Wendy” who lives with his ex-wife, away from home and has custody of her. He only sees his daughter once a month. His 15-year-old niece, “Claire”, lives with him as he raised her since she was a child due to the death of her parents. He writes that he is closer to Claire than to Wendy since Claire lives with him. He explained that Wendy and Claire didn’t get along.

It’s not easy to lose a loved one, especially a parent. According to Healthline, a person going through a grieving process may experience a variety of emotions, including anger, guilt, shock or numbness, pain, or even confusion. Healthline recommends staying close to other family members, therapy or support groups, and discussing memories with friends and family.

“Some time ago I got a bonus at work and decided to go on a trip, but I couldn’t afford to take the two girls and the girls don’t get along (which is mostly Claire’s fault I admit) so no one would have fun if I took them both so I had to pick one and since Wendy can go with her mom if she wants I decided it was only fair if I took Claire,” he said.

When they returned from the trip, Wendy was angry with her father and claimed that he was not taking her on vacation and was “choosing his niece over her”.

“I raised Claire and consider her my daughter so I don’t think I did anything wrong. My ex calls me AH though and says I always favor Claire but that’s not true,” a he concluded.

Followers of “AITA” were quick to comment,

“YTA,” wrote u/dream_bean_94 in the main comment with 12,000 upvotes: “If they are both in your custody, you should treat them as equally as possible. You should have taken both or taken neither. Or planned a trip comparable to take your daughter separately.”

“YTA. Why did you have to take the trip? No one was forcing you. You could have taken the trip alone or used the money to do something fun with your two daughters. You really let that relationship sour “said u/Timely_Excuse2194. .

U/Unit-00 wrote in part, “YTA, your daughter feels like you replaced her, and you kind of did.”

“YTA if you can’t afford to take both, don’t go there at all. You’re obviously showing favoritism,” said u/Geeklover1030.
