Mother Calls Daughter ‘Selfish Brat’

When people go through grief, having family and friends around who try to be there for them makes a lot of difference. It might be what helps them get through the hard times. But what happens when the family makes it worse?

What happens when they ruin the one day in your life engineered to make you feel like the center of the universe? For this story, we’ll call the poster Hannah. Hannah is a mum of four (23, 20, 16, and 13). This story is about her oldest daughter, Zara.

Daughter Wanting to Blow Out Her Own Birthday Candles – And That Wasn’t the Worst Part

Hannah had a rule at home that once a kid clocked ten, the birthday parties stopped. But Zara was going through a tough time, so Hannah bent the law this time.

The Birthday Party

The family threw a huge surprise party for Zara to cheer her up. A bunch of people were in attendance, Zara’s aunts, uncles, and their kids. It was going well, and everyone was having fun, including Zara. 

Finally, it was time for Zara to blow out her candles. Her young nieces and nephews wanted to stand with Zara while she did that, to which she agreed.  However, it didn’t go according to plan. Blowing out the candles on your birthday cake is an integral part of the event, and trust me, you don’t want that ruined.

The Birthday Cake

Zara was upset about this, and her mom told her to suck it up and blow out the remaining candles on the cake. It’s not easy, as she must have been looking forward to making that wish, as anyone would. Yet, no one thought it was anything serious.

Who’s The Selfish Brat? Hannah’s sister felt embarrassed at Zara’s outburst. She said her daughter was a child who didn’t mean to do what she did. Her daughter is five, so it is understandable; they could have reprimanded the little girl or let Zara know they were remorseful about it.
