‘AITA for telling my son he shouldn’t come out in our yard?’
The father asked, “AITA for telling my son that he shouldn’t go out in our yard anymore since he makes our neighbors’ daughters uncomfortable? The father then explained the whole scenario regarding his son and his neighbor. He wrote: “My son is 13 but looks a bit older. My wife and I are tall but he is ready to outgrow me as he is 5’10” and well built. He’s a great boy, and I never suspected him of saying or doing anything wrong. We have a big yard and a big garden, and he will go there a lot to read or just have fun.”
He added: “Now our neighbors’ yard is about 100 feet away, and there’s this little grove of trees between us, but we don’t have any fences so you can see each other’s yards. We don’t really talk to each other or really know each other, but he has two daughters who are a bit younger than my son.”
“He never even looks that way”
He added: “The other week a neighbor came by and said my son was making his daughters uncomfortable. I asked if he had done anything, and he said no not like that, it’s just that he kind of intimidates them by hanging out in the yard I spoke with my son and he confirmed that he never even looks in that direction, never talks to them or talks to them. had never heard or seen uncomfortable.”
The father then said: “So I had a conversation with my son earlier than expected. I told him that sometimes people are going to be uncomfortable with him. It’s not his fault or their fault. fault, we just have to respect other people and make sure we don’t impose ourselves on others. I get it, I’m a big guy. I have to cross the street all the time because women will speed up when they see me, which I completely understand. Hell, I’m even trying to stay longer to avoid that.”
The father then tells his son not to wander around the yard because of his neighbor’s daughters. He wrote: “So I told my son I wasn’t mad but he probably shouldn’t linger alone in the yard anymore. He was upset but understood. My wife is furious, she says that I should have talked to her first (and she’s right on that front) and that our son didn’t do anything I get it, but I still don’t think he should be in the yard if he puts the others uncomfortable.

“He did nothing wrong”
One user showed his outrage at the father’s actions and wrote, “Yta. Your son did nothing wrong and to make it look like he did is ridiculous. Your neighbors look awful and I really try not to infer too much from this story.” Another slammed the dad, saying: “They try to portray him as some kind of predator by just being in his own backyard. Who cares if they’re uncomfortable? They can either make themselves comfortable , or stay inside their own home. YTA for not supporting your son.”
A third user wrote, “I came here to say the same thing about building a fence. Good fences make good neighbors. YTA OP. It’s not your son’s job to put someone comfortable, especially when he’s in his own backyard.”
