Insight from an expert

Kevin Mimms, LMFT, said Newsweek that u/throwaway2948928 did the right thing when speaking with Stephanie.

“If she added anything, it would be to clearly state the reasons for the request – expectations of respect and kindness – and the consequences – you can’t live here if you don’t meet those expectations,” he said. he declares.

Mimms added that if the family reaches a point where u/throwaway2948928 wants to work things out with others, they need to remember why Stephanie was kicked out, to begin with — to protect her daughter.

“If she wants to smooth things over, maybe say something about her still being an important member of her family and loving her,” he said.

If Stephanie pushes back, u/throwaway2948928 should maintain that boundary of asking for kindness to her daughter and her family.

“At this point, the responsibility for reconciliation falls on the niece,” Mimms said. “Humility and contrition lead to forgiveness, while callousness prevents it.”


In his post, u/throwaway2948928 said his sister asked if it was possible for Stephanie to move in with her. Because it is difficult to find accommodation, u/throwaway2948928 accepted.

“I immediately noticed that Stephanie was weird about Amelia being a teenage mother,” said u/throwaway2948928. “She was making jokes in bad taste and I immediately pulled her aside and told her [her] that I would not tolerate any kind of teasing. »

She added that when she hired a tutor for Amelia and Raymond, Stephanie said they wouldn’t need one if they were “in charge”.

u/throwaway2948928 said he noticed Stephanie also taking clothes from Amelia without asking.

“When she moved in, I told her that at home, we asked permission before [taking] other people’s stuff so I was pretty annoyed by that,” u/throwaway2948928 said.

Although Amelia asked for the shirt to be returned, u/throwaway2948928 said Stephanie refused, saying she didn’t need it because she didn’t fit in it. u/throwaway2948928 said the shirt was meant to serve as motivation to lose the weight she gained during her pregnancy.

Reddit reacts

Although she faced backlash from her family, Reddit users came to her defense.

“I know you care about helping your family, but make sure they don’t mistake your kindness for weakness,” one Reddit user wrote. “If the roles had been reversed, would they have opened their doors for you or your daughter?”
