Parenting is hard. It’s even more exhausting when you have to do this job alone. Some single moms indicate that they seemingly have superpowers because they are twice as strong, twice as resilient, and twice as caring compared to those who have partners. Moreover, sometimes, their daily life can become tasteless as they don’t have anyone to be friends or with whom they can share their feelings and difficulties.
In modern life, many of us accept our parents have their new partners after their relationship is broken or something like that, because we hope that our parents will be happier and that person can help, feel, and share our parents’ problems in daily life. However, not everyone likes that new partner. There are many different reasons for that. And the guy in this story below also doesn’t like his mom’s boyfriend. He shared his story on the r/AmItheAsshole subreddit to ask the online community whether or not he was wrong when he asked his mom’s boyfriend to stop trying to parent him.
