👀 Is she sabotaging their own daughters? AITA?

A husband is questioning his wife's behavior towards their daughters. He has noticed that she provides them with wrong information or misses out on crucial details in instructions, which results in their failure. He also noticed that his wife brushes out their daughters' knots when their hair is dry, causing them pain, even though she knows brushing it when wet with conditioner is a better option. When one of her daughters failed to bake a cake due to a crucial step being left out, the wife seemed to gain satisfaction from watching her struggle. Additionally, when one of her daughters didn't like her meal, the wife placed her on a ready-meal diet for a month without any explanation. When the husband approached his wife about her behavior, she treated him silently. The husband now questions whether he is an a**hole for calling out his wife. Stay tuned for the comments and reactions.
