A family in Australia is caught in a heated debate after a father rewarded his son with a car for acing his final high school exams, but left his daughter empty-handed. The father set the same expectations for both children, but when the daughter failed to meet the mark, she felt entitled to a car anyway. Now, the family is divided, and the father is left wondering if he's in the wrong. Let's dive into this family drama and see what went down. 😮🍿

Dad's Dilemma: To Buy or Not to Buy 🤔

The father is now facing backlash from his daughter, who accuses him of sexism for not rewarding her with a car despite her lower exam score. He admits to laughing at her request, which may have added fuel to the fire. 🤦‍♂️ Though he offered to get her a tutor, she refused to cooperate and didn't put in the effort to achieve a good ATAR. Now, the internet weighs in on whether the dad is in the wrong or if the daughter's entitlement is misplaced. Let's see what people have to say... 🗣️

Daughter didn't meet the conditions, NTA. Sexist card is irrelevant 😑
