Is Dad's Unconventional Take on Rejection Justified? 🤔

In a world where entitlement and vilification are all too common, this single dad took a stand against the norm. He refused to label his youngest daughter's crush as an idiot for rejecting her, believing that everyone has the right to turn someone down without being vilified. His eldest daughter disagreed, accusing him of not being supportive. The youngest daughter also felt that her dad was defending the boy rather than comforting her. As the household remains icy, we can't help but wonder: is the father's perspective justified, or should he have taken a different approach? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐💬
