I don’t know why any parent (or anyone at all) would react this way to a girl having her period for the first time, but we all know that people are strange.

So I’m not going to give anything else away…

Check out this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page and we’ll see what you think in the comments.

AITA for continuing to resent my dad for how he reacted when I got my first period?

“I am 16F and my dad is 45M.

I got my first period in the fall of 2019 when I was 13 and in 8th grade. Neither of my parents had ever taught me about periods so I had a bit of a “Carrie” moment.

Telling my mom was hard enough. She was upset because I’m an only child and she didn’t want me to grow up. I told my dad a few weeks later and he said, “great, my daughter is a b**ch now!” in a tone like he was mad at me.

Yesterday my dad asked me about the most annoying thing he ever said to me was, and I said the period reaction incident. He kept trying to justify it and said that I should stop purposely holding a grudge.
