Strict dad fuming as wife replaces 14-year-olds door after he took it away

Every couple will have their own method of parenting to keep their kids in check.

Some might confiscate phones until homework is complete, while others will have a chore chart at home.

Now one dad had a strict "no doors" policy but his wife simply disagreed and replaced her 14-year-old son's door.

The teenage lad was left with just an empty frame despite the fact that his mum wasn't keen on the idea.

Meanwhile the husband thought while the boy was under their care, they should be able to keep an eye on him.

However, the mum decided to reinstall the door for her son's birthday while her husband was away and he was not happy.

Taking to Reddit, the woman said: "My husband believes that until he is 18, our son shouldn't conceal his room as he's under our care.

"This has been one of the things straining our relationship lately, as I think that a teen should have some freedom, but a door at least.

"But my husband keeps insisting on him having almost no freedom at all.

"Whenever I bring up the door thing, he just shuts me down with 'this is what it'll take him to be a man' and 'this is how I was raised'."

She added: "Both my son's birthday and Christmas are coming up, and I decided that he should finally have a door to his room.

"So, I went behind my husband's back and bought a new door and hurried it to be installed while they were both away.

"When my son came from school he was incredibly delighted, but my husband didn't receive the news so well.

"He told me that this is not the kind of decision that I should be making by myself. Now he's refusing to sleep in the same bed as me."
