Father steals daughter's savings for grandson's birthday and Christmas 🎁

A young mother is left heartbroken after discovering her father had stolen her cash savings for her son's upcoming birthday and Christmas. The 22-year-old has shared her story online, explaining that she was low-income and had been saving for the celebrations throughout the year. However, her father, who had previously taken most of her paycheck when she began working at 16 to support his addiction, stole the money from her home. Despite having CCTV footage, the police were unable to recover the stolen funds. The mother's decision to call the police before speaking to her mother has caused a rift in the family, with her mother calling her an a**hole for potentially putting her father's career at risk. The incident has sparked a debate online, with many supporting the mother for taking action while others feel she should have spoken to her mother first. What do you think?
