There are many ways to show your love for someone - a gift, gifts, words of appreciation and respect, random acts of kindness, regular gestures and traditions… And one dad has one of those that he considers to be an important part of his family life. It’s safe to say that he loves his sons very much and wants to show it in the best way possible. That can be different for everyone, but this man puts his arm around their shoulders while watching a movie or before they sleep, kisses their heads as a way to show his affection or simply just greets them – whatever it may be. But as the family got bigger and now includes a woman who doesn’t like this tradition, the man is being criticized and called out for not respecting her views. The Redditor has asked people for their opinion on this matter.
