Dad Wants to Know If He's Wrong for Not Going With His Wife and 16-Month-Old to the ER

By

Parenting isn't easy. No matter how much you've talked through every potential issue, you and your partner will disagree about how to handle certain situations that arise. That's what happened in this story a dad posted to Reddit's "Am I the A-hole?" He and his wife disagreed about how to handle their daughter's fever and cough, and it led to a big fight. 

Dad explains that their 16-month-old daughter had been running a fever of 101-ish degrees for a little over a day. Her voice was raspy and she was coughing, "but still happy as a clam and eating and sleeping normally." They were keeping her on Tylenol for her fever, and it seemed to him to be working.
