Family traditions are a beautiful way of preserving family memories, be unique in a way, and have something you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
One mom got so distressed about a family heirloom that she took it to Reddit’s Am I The A-hole sub to ask if she was in the wrong or not. As it turns out, the woman is a mother of three: a cis teen daughter, a cis young adult son, and a teen trans daughter.
It’s been her family tradition to gift a beautiful diamond necklace to the oldest daughter in the family when she turns 18. However, the parents planned on giving the necklace to the cis daughter, and the dispute came between the trans daughter and the cis daughter. The mom is now puzzled about what to do, and she asked if she made an a-hole move by telling her trans daughter that she intended on giving the necklace to the cis daughter, even though the trans daughter is older.
Although we admit that it’s a difficult situation, most Redditors agreed that there are no a-holes here, and each side has it’s own right. Some Redditors offered their honest and creative advice, and we invite you to check out some of the most popular responses below.
