Meet Emma (14), a studious girl who loves her violin and language lessons. Her mother, Nancy (38), remarried three years ago and now has a stepdaughter, Kay, who's also 14. Emma's aunt (33) has been financially helping her niece since her brother's passing. This summer, she took Emma on a trip to Japan as a reward for her academic achievements. But when the family decided to skip their annual summer trip and redecorate Kay's room instead, claiming Emma already had her vacation, the aunt couldn't help but intervene. She called Nancy, accusing her of being unfair to Emma. But was she right? 🤷‍♀️🎻✈️

"Unpopular opinion, but it sounds like the mother resents what the OP is providing for her daughter and the redecoration plan of one kid's room is a spite move." 😳

"YTA. They're doing one room this summer and one room next summer. If they can't afford to do both rooms this year, that seems fair enough since Emma did get to go on a big trip even if it was with you rather than them. You need to butt out, honestly." 💁‍♀️
