Daughter furious as parents gift son college fund for house 😡

A recent story about a family has gone viral after the parents decided to gift their son's untouched college fund to him for a house, causing their daughter to be furious. The son received a full scholarship, which meant that the college fund was never used. However, the daughter, who had to take out loans to go to college, received half of her tuition from the college fund. Despite this, the parents decided to gift their son the fund for a house down payment. This has caused a rift in the family, with the daughter feeling that it is not fair that her brother is already ahead in life and is being given even more advantages. On the other hand, the son and parents feel that the daughter is being entitled. The situation has caused tension within the family, with extended family members taking sides. Is this a case of unfair treatment, or are the daughter's feelings unjustified? Let's take a look at some of the reactions to this story.

Choosing fairness or equality in college fund distribution divides siblings. NTA.
