She’s Resentful She Pays For Her 12-Year-old Stepson To Come on Holiday, He’s Not Perfect But Is She an A**hole?

A recent Reddit thread on the “Am I The A**hole” (AITA) subreddit saw a stepmother asking if she was wrong for not inviting her stepson on holiday with them.

This 26-year-old woman married her partner, a 26-year-old man, and they have three kids between them. The woman has two daughters, aged 9 and 7, and her husband has a 12-year-old son.

Her stepson used to stay at their house on the weekends, however, as he has to share a room with his stepsisters, he recently decided he doesn’t want to stay anymore.

She thinks this is fair enough, as he is getting older and wants his own space, plus she thinks he is getting too old to share now anyway.

The stepmother explains that she doesn’t have a problem with this and that her stepson needs to do what is best for him.

She’s not going to force him to come to their house all the time when he doesn’t want to and adds that he doesn’t want to spend any time there whatsoever anyway.

Her stepson wants to spend all his time at his grandma’s.

Last year the whole family went away, her stepson had his own room on holiday, and they all had a great time.
