He wanted to pre-approve all her classes, have weekly meetings to discuss grades, and expected her to maintain a minimum grade of B, plus even more stipulations.

Samantha’s father was controlling to the point of randomly searching her backpack and locker to make sure she wasn’t hiding anything.

Meanwhile, Samantha’s aunt and uncle were paying for their children’s college education without any stipulations or control. They believed in their children’s abilities and trusted them to make the right decisions.

She Turned to the Internet

Samantha wasn’t sure if she was in the wrong in this situation. She hadn’t purposely tried to embarrass her father but she didn’t see why he should take the credit for her college payments when she was the one paying. She decided to ask the internet for their opinions and so she posted on a popular Reddit forum.

The Internet Responded

One person wrote, “So what if he was embarrassed. His emotions are not yours to manage. You told the truth. Expand on it, “yeah, there were too many micro-managing strings attached to accepting the money that I didn’t want to relive my anxiety ridden high school years.” Also, your dad sound ridiculous and kinda scary. Maybe LC is the way to go.”

Another commenter posted, “It’s embarrassing to him that you hate his control so much you’d turn down college being paid. And rightly so: he should be embarrassed.”

A Final Comment

This last commenter wrote this opinion, “I’ll admit I’m curious what dad’s response to the question would’ve been if OP hadn’t said anything. Would he have lied? Said something vague? Changed the subject? Where was that conversation going to go that didn’t end up with the truth coming out?”
