Dad was reprimanded for asking to spend the week at his mother’s house to get away from the child.

A new father who requested to live with his mother from Monday through Friday so he could “get a proper night’s sleep” received criticism online.

On the forum Mumsnet, his horrified mother sought advice on how to react.

The response from other Mumsnet users was almost entirely negative; one called the son a “silly, selfish boy,” and another cautioned that it might cause his relationship to fall apart.

Under the pen name “HippPiggy,” the mother wrote, “Adult son wants to move back Monday through Friday to ‘get a night’s sleep’.”

“DS [Dearest Son] is 27 and his gf [girlfriend]just had a baby,” she wrote.

They are being awakened during the night, as you might anticipate.

“DS has asked to move back in from Monday through Friday so he can get a good night’s sleep and focus on going to work and performing his job well.

I’m not sure why DH [Dearest Husband] is even asking; he thinks the idea is ridiculous and that he should just “get on with it.”

They must not do this with other new parents, right?

“I recognize that sleep deprivation is challenging, but I’m not overly taken with this notion.

How would you react, though? I don’t want to be unhelpful either.

Other Mumsnet users were astounded by the post. One of them commented: “Wow.

What if he takes into consideration that his wife also needs to sleep and makes the time to complete his share of the nighttime care?

A different person commented, “I think I’d be giving him a very sharp talking to about being a parent and not thinking it was acceptable to leave it all to his girlfriend.

Boy, you’re being a dummy.

A third warned that moving back in with his mother might lead to the breakup of his relationship with his girlfriend, writing: “I’d respond that if he abandons his partner with a newborn, it’s likely to end his relationship.

A third person warned that moving back in with his mother might cause him to break up with his girlfriend, writing on Reddit: “I’d respond that if he leaves his partner with a newborn, it’s likely to end his relationship.

As a result of doing “everything” for the baby in addition to working, the mother’s son, she argued, should be allowed to move.

“Yeah I agree – he should be splitting the work load, but his argument is when he gets home from work he does ‘everything’ for the baby- feeding, bathing, cleaning all,” she wrote.

This serves as an overview.
