“My daughter explained that she’s not a fan of seeing animals contained in a tiny space? But if you want it, that’s up to you. My daughter has always loved animals, especially sea life. I so was not surprised, I know she watched documentaries about the marine world,” he said.

Many people think the animals on display at SeaWorld don’t deserve to be there. Actor Eric Balfour has teamed up with PETA to explain how dolphins and whales are “trapped” at SeaWorld.

Editors were quick to defend the OP’s decision not to force his daughter on the family outing.

“Your daughter is uncomfortable with a planned outing, 15, she’s old enough to stay alone in a hotel room if you think she’s responsible enough (do the check-in). That’s weird to think she should apologize for this. The implication that your daughter is not your real family is beyond appalling,” u/rak1882 received top comment with over 18,000 upvotes.

U/Zeshui0 commented, “Your daughter is old enough to be in a room alone and old enough to have her own opinions. It sounds like your wife is trying to unnecessarily control some issues. so I don’t know why your wife insists, unless she’s accused of having her authority challenged.

U/mm172 wrote: “NTA. Your daughter politely takes a principled stance based on her own research and careful thought. This is something you should encourage, and your wife needs to realize that demanding people are grateful for things they have valid reasons not to do. wanting will never end well.”

“NTA! ‘Your REAL family?!’ What a horrible thing to think, let alone say. When people tell you who they are, believe them. Forced apologies are worthless and your daughter has done nothing to apologize,” exclaimed u/ flaky_burnt.
