He said the girl had a pretty successful movie review blog and that he himself blogged about life and religion.
“My wife and I insist on being very open with our children about all of our passwords,” he said, noting that they all share their passwords with family for times “just in case. “.
He also pointed out that his daughter had the password to his blog.
He shared, “I asked my daughter if I could ever have her blog password so I could log in to see her stats (I was curious) and she said she wasn’t. “comfortable” to give me his password.”
The man then “got angry” and said his daughter’s choice was “disrespectful” since he and his wife voluntarily share all their passwords with the children.
He added: “I told her that if she wasn’t ‘comfortable’ giving me her password, she didn’t need to use our computers or our WiFi.”
The girl then gave up the password after all.
Many comments on the thread agreed that the father was wrong about the situation, writing: “YTA [You’re The A–hole].”
“You are needlessly nosy, and the fact that you had to threaten her to force her to give you her password says a lot about you,” one person said.
Another person noted the lack of privacy, writing, “You are teaching your child that she has no right to privacy and that only people who have things to hide want to keep things private or just to themselves.”
Others accused the man of wanting to access his daughter’s blog out of jealousy.
“It seems obvious that you want to use his traffic to promote your own blog and sell books,” one person said.
‘Jealous of your child’s success is a terrible look,’ another added.
“Let’s be honest: it’s not about a password. It’s about control,” someone else pointed out. “Because if you REALLY cared about the stars, you could have asked her to share them and show them and show them to you. She probably would have.”
Another commenter agreed, saying, “It would be one thing if you were worried about his safety. But you’re just curious and in control here.”
