A mother from the AITA subreddit took to the forum to ask if she was wrong for removing her son's door after she thought he was hurt. It turns out he was just watching TV with the volume up loud, but the mother was so scared she broke his door down. Now she refuses to buy a new one, and her husband agrees with her decision.

The son is not happy, but the mother is worried that if something really does happen, they won't be able to reach him. What do you think? Is the mother justified for removing the door or is she overreacting? Read more to find out!

Mom removes son's door after scary incident 😱

In this situation, a mom got scared when she heard a loud sound from her house while she was making lunch. She thought her son was in danger and tried to open his locked door. When she couldn't get a response from her son, she broke the door and found that her son was just watching a movie with the volume on full blast.

The son got angry when he found out that his mom broke his door and refused to fix it. The mom decided to remove the door entirely until her husband could fix it. The son was upset and thought it was his right to have a door and that he deserved privacy. The mom grounded him for swearing at her afterward, but now she's wondering if she overreacted.

Remove TV, replace door, and add doorknob without lock. NTA.

Privacy is important. Get him a new door without a lock. Take away the TV and have him work it off. Not getting a door would be an a-hole move. 🔑🚪📺
