A father had punished his son after he pulled a prank on a girl

A father had shared on Reddit that he punished his son, as his son pranked an innocent girl from his school.

The father had stated that he has three children, and they believe that raised well in their family. “I have three kids, oldest is at university so it’s just me, my wife and them (16M and 11F). All my kids are children who have been raised well and they’ve grown to be people I’m proud to call my own. My son recently had some friends over and things were going fine, I went upstairs at one point to bring them the pizza they had ordered when I overheard my son talking about how his friends owed him something for asking a girl in their class out as a prank, from what I gathered the girl was someone his friends didn’t deem attractive enough and a load of other bullshit.”

Then he talked with his son about the problem. “I decided to talk to my son about it after his friends left to save him from embarrassment. I did raise my voice a little but that was due to how maddening the whole situation was, the same thing had happened to my cousin when we were younger and I saw how the whole thing affected her as she took on new relationships.”
His son stated that they just made a prank on someone, it is not a big deal, and it is not a mature thing to listen his conversations behind the doors. “My son argued back that it was just a prank that wouldn’t hurt anyone and that I was going against him by listening to his friends’ private conversations and said that while he felt sorry for my cousin he was “mature enough” to understand to not pull the prank any further.”


The father had grounded his son in regards of his prank. “I didn’t listen to any other excuse he gave and decided to ground him for two weeks, he said that I shouldn’t have any say in this when the whole thing had nothing to do with me.”
His wife had stated that her son didn’t do anything wron. “My wife claims that “boys will be boys” and that it’s something harmless, when I asked her how she’d feel if this was played on our daughter she simply said, “That won’t happen because she has good genes”. MIL and FIL are blowing up the family group chat about how I’m hurting their baby for normal teenage boy behaviour.”

Here are some of the advices and comments that Redditors had written.

“NTA. Your son is a bully. Your wife sounds like a piece of work.”

“My “best” friend pulled a prank like that on me in 4th grade. Fifty plus years later I still hate her guts for it. It ruined my dating years because my self confidence was destroyed at 9 years old.”

“This happened to me in 5th grade and I found out in high school it was a whole joke at the other middle school that a geek like me thought someone as cool as Matt would date me. I used it as a teaching tool when I taught middle school but I still think about how horrible that was to do to someone.”
