A Wrench in the Works: A Family's Fight for Respect 🛠️🚗

In a house divided by a rusty Mustang and a young woman's fiery passion for cars, a father finds himself at odds with his daughter's confrontational attitude. Despite his two decades of experience, he struggles to bridge the gap between his knowledge and her enthusiasm. As the pandemic provides more time for car repairs, it also fuels the tension between them. The father, unable to bear his daughter's disrespect, recruits his son to help, leaving the daughter out of the loop. While the mother supports her husband, she suggests ignoring the daughter's rudeness. As the garage becomes a battleground, the internet weighs in on this family drama. Let's see what they have to say...🔧🚗

Soft YTA. Hear me out. She's trying to prove herself to you, by showing you she knows her stuff. But she's a kid, so she's not good at it. You as her parent need to talk to her about it, not call her names online because she's pushy. She's a product of what you've nurtured, and she clearly feels like she's got something to prove. You need to explain it's okay to be new, but gently remind her you've been doing this 30x as long. She obviously feels stupid and unwelcome in that space and she's overcompensating. 🤔💭

"YTA. Your daughter is a 'know-it-all' because she cares about the subject and has done her own research about it. Sure she might not be right, but then make it a teaching moment for her. It is normal for a teen with a big interest in a subject to have strong opinions on it. You should capitalise on that, and bond with her through debating what should be done, and also use it as a teaching experience for her. Your son doesnt argue because he doesnt really care. He just wants the job to be done, he doesnt sound like he is interested at all in the specifics of it." 🤓🔧
