Mom Scolds Husband During Live Stream for Neglecting Baby
A mom scolds and embarrassed her husband after interrupting his live stream. Before the incident, she reminded her husband to take care of their 7-month-old daughter while she went out to buy groceries.
After 4 hours, she was filled with anger upon learning that her daughter remained the same since she left. Enraged, the woman called out the dad for failing to watch over their daughter.
The woman’s 35-year-old husband has a YouTube channel with over 14k followers. According to her, the husband has frequently been doing live streaming despite all their parental duties and responsibilities.
She told her husband that there are a lot of things that they must prioritize besides him live streaming. Concerning this, he has always been like that, even before their 7-year-old child was born.
He likes spending his time live streaming and enjoys his time with his follower. The 35-year-old man loves answering questions and engaging in conversations.
“He keeps saying that his followers are good for his mental health,” said his wife. “Engaging with them weekly makes him become better at socializing and communicating.”
Days before the incident, the man expressed his desire to start live streams to boost his channel’s fanbase. However, this led him to neglect his duties at home.
Concerning this, the woman tried to find a common ground with him by planning a schedule for his streams. Unfortunately, her suggestion lead to nothing as her husband continued to focus on his channel.
After he started initiating spontaneous live streams, the husband left his wife to care for their daughter by herself.
Husband Says His Wife Ruined His Channel
While on her grocery run, the woman kept checking up on her husband. She didn’t expect much from him because of his recent actions. Concerning this, her husband always tells her that everything is fine and their child is sleeping.
“I started getting this weird feeling something was wrong because,” she said. “She must’ve been hungry or needed a diaper change.”
The father kept insisting that everything was fine. The woman’s mother instinct started to kick on, and she decided to get home immediately. She then discovered that her husband was not with their child and failed to take care of her.
“I went into the bedroom and saw that my daughter was awake, and her diaper wasn’t changed,” she said. “Worse was that her bottle was even touched.”
She then looked for her husband all over their house only to find him in his office live streaming.

“I was beyond seething. I barged into the office and saw him sitting,” she said. “He was trying to turn his mic off and telling me to stop, but I didn’t stop.”
She also added that she struggled to contain her anger while calling him out. She didn’t stop scolding her husband while he panicked to turn off the stream.
“He freaked out on me, saying I just ended his entire channel and destroyed his fan base for interrupting his live stream and embarrassing and scandalized him like that.”
The whole ordeal led to a huge fight and the woman ended up staying at her mom’s house.
