She Grounded Her Daughter During Their Family Vacation Because The Teen Wouldn’t Stop Winning Bets Made With Her Husband, And He Was Getting Sick Of Losing

Her husband accepted most of her daughter’s challenges and lost most of the time.

“My husband was getting sick of losing, and my stepdaughters were upset that their dad was buying her stuff and not them, so I told my daughter she could [no longer] compete with her stepdad, or she had to let him win,” she recalled.

“She decided to tell her stepdad that she couldn’t compete with him anymore because he ‘couldn’t handle losing.’ [They started] to argue, so I told her that if she kept it up, she’d be grounded to [stay at] the resort for the rest of the trip, which [had] a little over a week [left]. She decided to test me, so I stuck to my word, and she was left at the resort while the rest of us went out every day.”

She felt the vacation was much more enjoyable without her daughter challenging her husband and complicating things during their outings. However, once everyone returned home, her ex told her he had heard about what she did to their daughter and was not happy.

“He’s mad at me now for leaving her there and excluding her from the vacation because my husband couldn’t act like an adult,” she said.

“I told him my daughter was warned to stop, but she decided to test me.”

Things have gotten so tense between her, her ex, and her daughter that her ex isn’t allowing her daughter to stay with her beyond the means of their custody agreement and is threatening to make her pay child support.

Should she apologize to her daughter, or was her decision to ground her on vacation reasonable?
