Being a parent is tough, but the teenage years are particularly brutal. The arguing, eye-rolling, lying, sneaking around, and general angsting are enough to drive any parent mad. When raising a teen boundaries are key, but how strict is too strict?
Reddit user u/WholeFly463 turned to the internet to find out if he was too over the top in punishing his teen daughter. She thinks he's the worst dad in the world. Listen to his story, and see if you agree.
I (49M) have a daughter(15F) and a son(14M). Both live with me permanently as their mother lives in another state. My daughter has been struggling keeping her grades up and hanging out with the wrong crowd.
I have hired a few tutors to help with some subjects and she is seeing a therapist. She will lash out sometimes at home and I will have to punish her.
