A Christmas Conundrum: Empowerment or Theft? 🎄💸

In a whirlwind of holiday drama, a dad finds himself at odds with his ex over their daughter's Christmas gift. After converting her Amazon gift card into cash, he's accused of 'stealing' the ex's money. But he stands firm, arguing that it's their daughter's money to spend as she pleases. He believes in teaching her financial autonomy, but his ex-partner vehemently disagrees. As the dust settles, one question remains: Was he right to let his daughter use her gift as she wanted, or did he overstep a boundary? Let's see what the internet thinks of this festive fiasco... 🎁💔
