Some parents be crazy.
I know that is a very ineloquent way of putting it. But it summarises this whole story perfectly. You see, when you’re naming your kid, you have to think about what most people would call him. After all, many people will stick with a nickname and your kid might even like it more.
So this mother should have known that with someone whose name is Andrew would be called Andy a lot. However, apparently she hates the nickname. And rather than letting it go, she decided to have a meeting with his teacher so she could stop everyone.
Can you guess how it went? Well, if you can’t then scroll on below and read the story for yourself.
This is how the craziness starts.
Why did she have to apologize? It’s not her fault this mother is crazy.
No, you do not get to decide what people call him. He is his own person.
Honestly, at the end of the day, the kid is an individual. Sure she is his mother but she is being too controlling. It is never good to strip away your kid’s personality just so you can mold him into whatever you want. And it seems Reddit agrees.
Me Me Me.
Why would anyone feel put down?
She shouldn’t have named him Samuel.
Ah yes, the very common name Andy-Roo.
At least the kids aren’t bullying him……yet.
After all, kids can be quite mean.
Even pets might not like this woman.
It is a personal choice, not someone else’s.
Only she will be good enough for her amazing kid.
If he likes it, there are no problems.
She really should but she won’t.
Just name him Richard.
I’m sure no one will use a nickname then.
And the mother does not own the kid.
Just move on.
