Man Refuses To See His Dying Father, Ends Up Getting Called Heartless And Ungrateful By A Family Member

Some parents believe that it is a necessary step to kick their kids out of the house once they turn 18 but some people find it cruel and do not support the idea.

While some parents think that it is a necessary step to make their kids independent and mature in life, others are against it. Supporters of this idea believe that it prepares the kids for the harsh realities of adult life. No doubt that gives children the skills and resilience they need to succeed in life. On the other hand, kicking a child out of the family home can be damaging to their mental health and emotional well-being. A man shared his story on Reddit that he was kicked out of his house by his father the day after his 18th birthday because his father believed that an 18-year-old is an adult and should live by themselves. OP had to live on the streets for a few weeks.

With the help of some NGOs, he managed to finish school. He worked part-time and saved for college. After ten years, he was contacted by his uncle who told him that his father is on his deathbed and his last wish is to see him. OP denied to go and see his father. Scroll down for the complete story.

OP has no contact with his parents. He doesn’t visit them and doesn’t want to see them again.
