These parents are living proof that having a PhD and a Master’s does not necessarily make you smart! This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit by u/JacquesBN, who shared his story about the education funds his own parents set up for his kids.
The Redditor and his wife had hoped that both their son and their daughter would get advanced degrees, so they didn’t tell either child about the money. Their daughter pursued humanities in college and scraped by on scholarship money and on her own. Meanwhile, their son pursued STEM and, when it became clear to his parents that he wasn’t going to pursue graduate school, they decided to use his education fund on a nice apartment for him during his undergraduate education. Of course, it was only a matter of time before their daughter was going to find out about this completely biased, totally unfair nonsense. And when she did, it wasn’t pretty. Keep scrolling below for an update from the original poster about the current state of their relationship.
