Father discovers disturbing behavior of overprotective wife
A father on Reddit has been left reeling after discovering the concerning behavior of his overprotective wife. The man's wife has been insisting on always supervising their daughter's playdates with a boy of a similar age and even watches them closely when they are in the same room. However, a recent incident has brought her behavior into question.
The children were left alone for a short period of time and an employee at a store accused the boy of stealing. The wife sided with the employee and demanded the boy remove his jacket, which he refused to do. The situation quickly escalated and the boy left in the cold without his jacket.
The father has since discovered other worrying incidents, such as the wife screaming at the boy for giving his daughter a gymnastics lesson and calling him a pervert, as well as criticizing his eating habits. The father is now considering family therapy, but his daughter's recent revelations about her friendship with the boy have left him feeling lost and confused.
