A mother has caused a bit of a stir online after questioning if she's right to leave her daughter out of their upcoming family holiday.
"I have a daughter who is 17 who has a horrendous attitude, she’s incredibly rude, grumpy, snappy, inconsiderate and very very controlling." her post began.
"She is her fathers double, hence me leaving him and her having no contact."
"She has younger siblings who are also NC with him. They are completely different to her, just your average kids, occasionally naughty, rude, annoying, lazy etc, so by no means perfect."
She goes on to write that she and her new husband "are desperate for a holiday, we both work very hard and are very busy with kids etc. But we really want a relaxing holiday. If we take my daughter she will demand certain rooms, seats on plane, days out, food... If we leave her at home she’ll trash the house, so not an option, we have no one we want to lose friendship enough to leave her with them."
For the most part, the response was not positive for the mother...
"You don’t leave a child behind because they are annoying that’s not how parenting works." one person wrote.
"I can’t believe you’re thinking of taking all but one of your kids away." jibbed another.
"Of course you are being unreasonable to consider leaving her behind. Can you imagine the fall out when you return? You’d basically be giving her license to really kick-off and guilt trip you about ‘abandoning’ her and that you ‘don’t care’. Part of parenting is really having to ride out the tough storms." scolded another.
Do you think its unfair for the mum to leave her daughter at home dispite her behaviour?
