He Told His Six-Year-Old Daughter that He Hated Her ‘Grandma’ Name and She Burst Into Tears, Now His Wife Is Furious, but He Doesn’t See a Problem at All

A man tried to comfort his daughter after she was bullied at school for having a name like a ‘grandma.’ But when he said she could change it when she was older, she burst into tears and told his wife. Now he’s in trouble.

The man said, ‘Mildred. That’s my 6-year-old daughter’s name.’

It Wasn’t His Fault

He had always hated his young daughter’s name, but his wife loved it. He felt like Mildred was the name of an elderly lady or someone from the 19th century. Plus, he knew what kids were like and was sure they would bully a young girl called Mildred. And he was right…

She Was Being Bullied

One day, the man was picking his daughter up from school when he noticed something was off. Usually, she was extremely excited when she saw her dad at the end of the school day, but on this occasion, she was quiet. He had to badger her to find out what was wrong, and when they were almost home, she confessed that a kid in her class had made fun of her name.

The kid had told his daughter that the name Mildred “sounded like a grandma.”. It was devastating for her. She told her dad she no longer liked her name, and the man sympathized. He told his daughter that he never liked the name either, but she could change it when she got older.

He told his daughter that he had fought hard against the name Mildred, but everyone in the family shot him down. At this point, he’d pulled into the garage, and his daughter looked at him in horror. She couldn’t believe her dad hated her name! The man’s daughter burst into tears and ran inside to tell her mother.

His Wife Was Outraged

The man had tried to stop his daughter from running off, but he couldn’t catch her in time. His daughter told his wife that he had said her name was stupid and, to the man’s annoyance, left out the story about the kid at school. His wife was outraged and demanded he apologize.

She’d Forget It Tomorrow

But he didn’t want to apologize. After all, he’d only spoken the truth. He didn’t like his child’s name, and neither did his daughter. That’s when he started getting mad and walked away. Why was he being made to look like the villain for something his daughter would forget the next morning?

Later that evening, the man spoke to his daughter and asked why she had run away crying. He didn’t understand why she had been so hurt by his comment. But all his daughter could say was that she wasn’t ‘happy’ with her dad and didn’t want to talk to him at that time.

It Wasn’t Fair

The man said, ‘I’m not too worried about my daughter because she’s 6, so she’ll probably forget it by tomorrow’.

Was He In The Wrong?

His wife was mad at him, but he felt she was projecting. He thought that she felt guilty that she named their daughter Mildred. But she wanted him to apologize to his daughter! He was confused; why should he apologize to her? He only told her the truth. Frustrated, he asked the internet for advice.

The Internet Responded

One person said, ‘You better work on your emotional maturity, emotional intelligence, ability to read the room, and empathy.’

Others Chimed In

Another person commented, ‘You made a six-year-old cry, and you weren’t sorry.’

A Third Commenter Said:

“Uh, yeah… your daughter is going to remember this even if she’s 6. Jeez you really are a huge jerk.”

A 56-year-old father was happy to pay for his daughter’s wedding until she refused to invite two out of four siblings. His daughter said her soon-to-be in-laws were from a traditional country and would feel uncomfortable around anyone in a gay/ queer marriage. So she excluded her siblings, Alex and Tom, because they were both married to men, and one identified as non-binary.
