A 15-year-old girl faced a dilemma when her stepmother threatened to take 20% of the money she earned from selling handcrafted items as punishment for breaking curfew. In response, she moved the money to a different account to prevent her stepmother from accessing it. However, her actions have caused a rift in her family, with her father, upset that she did not trust him enough to protect her money. Meanwhile, her stepmother has banned her from seeing her brother. The girl is now asking Reddit users whether she was in the wrong for moving the money. What do you think? Should she have trusted her father to protect her money, or was she right to take matters into her own hands?
