A single father has turned to Reddit after discovering that his sister-in-law made inappropriate comments to his son about his mother. The man explained that his ex-partner, who was manipulative and abusive, has not contacted their child for three and a half years, but his brother and sister-in-law have been a huge help to him during that time. However, when the man's son began asking questions about his mother, he discovered that his sister-in-law had been telling the child inappropriate things. When he confronted his brother and sister-in-law about this, they became defensive and accused him of being unreasonable. The man is now unsure whether he's overreacting and has reached out to Reddit for advice. Read on for the full story and let us know what you think.

Being a single parent is difficult, but having a supportive family can make all the difference. However, when a single dad discovered that his brother and sister-in-law were telling his son inappropriate things about his mother, he was forced to confront them. The dad, who has full custody of his son due to his ex-partner's manipulative and abusive behavior, was grateful for his brother and sister-in-law's help until he found out about their behavior. After confronting them, they became defensive and refused to acknowledge their wrongdoing. Now, the dad is left wondering if he overreacted and struggling to find new childcare arrangements for his son. The situation is complicated by the fact that the dad's ex-partner and sister-in-law are casual friends, and the ex-partner made false accusations against the dad during the custody trial. The dad is determined to protect his son and make sure he is not exposed to inappropriate behavior or lies about his mother. Read on for the comments and reactions to this difficult situation.
