A 16-year-old boy recently took matters into his own hands when his mother failed him. When his little siblings showed no respect for his belongings, he had to teach them a lesson himself. Here’s what he had to say.
They struggled financially
The boy started by giving context to the situation. He came from an impoverished household under a single mother. He also had two younger siblings, 13-year-old Davion and 11-year-old Jayda.
His siblings broke everything
He explained that his younger siblings had a tendency to break whatever they touched. “Jayda and Davion are very irresponsible and destructive,” he said. To make matters worse, they never learned not to do this because their mother always excused their behavior.
They popped air mattresses
The boy said that he and his family lived in a cheap apartment not long ago. Sadly, they were so poor that they had to sleep on air mattresses. “We went through at least four air mattresses because my siblings kept putting holes in theirs,” he said, “and each time, I had to share mine, which was very aggravating and frustrating.”
They even destroyed his air mattress
Even after being forced to share with their older brother, his two younger siblings destroyed their shared air mattress. At this point, his mother’s boyfriend at the time lent him one because he had a spare. They destroyed this one, too, as well as their newly bought replacement.
He confronted his mother
It was frustrating to have to share possessions with his younger siblings when they had no respect or common sense not to destroy them. He couldn’t take their destructive tendencies anymore, so he talked to his mother about it. But she dismissed his concern, saying he was being selfish. He let the matter drop for the moment.
They didn’t learn
Thankfully, their economic situation eventually improved. However, what didn’t improve was Davion and Jayda’s destructiveness. Most recently, Davion had broken their mother’s TV, but rather than punish him, she had a different solution.
She told him to share
His mother took the TV that Davion and Jayda shared and put it in her own room to replace her broken one. Instead of punishing Davion’s bad behavior, she once again demonstrated that it had no consequence. She demanded that the original poster share his TV with Davion and Jayda whenever they wanted.
He didn’t want to share his TV with his siblings and risk it getting broken, too. When his mother said that it was her TV because she paid for it, he went out and bought his own TV. This angered his mother, who thought he was acting superior to everyone else.
He asked for advice
In the end, the boy just wanted his siblings to respect the property that they all shared. When they failed to learn, and his mother failed to teach them, he felt his only choice was to get property of his own that he couldn’t be forced to share. He asked the Internet to weigh in on his sibling dispute.
The Internet responded
The comment section fully supported the boy’s tactics in protecting his property. “Your mother was angry because she realized she could no longer control you,” said one commenter. “She says you’re selfish to make you feel guilty and manipulate you.” Another reply read, “Your own mother won’t stand up for you, so you stood up for yourself. They were destroying your things without any consequence.”
