Daughter Gets High To Avoid Babysitting Duties, Mom Gets Angry. Says, “You Should Make Better Life Choices” Asks If She Is Wrong?

Babysitting is a rewarding job that can be a great way to earn extra money and gain experience caring for children. It is also a lot of responsibility, and it is important to be prepared before you start babysitting. A user asked the forum,  Am I a jerk for getting high so my relatives don’t try and pawn their children on me?

BACK STORY

The original poster lives in British Columbia, and her family often hosts at their home because they live on a lake. 

OP says that she always seems to get roped into watching the kids. This means she doesn’t get to enjoy her life when they have guests.

OP IS ALWAYS RESPONSIBLE FOR KIDS

OP’s husband will drink beer with his brother and dad, OP’S  MIL and SIL will go on winery visits, and OP will end up at the house responsible for her nieces and nephews.

SHE WAS HIGH

So last weekend, OP ensured she was high when guests showed up.

SHE WAS NOT IN A CONDITION

OP’s husband and brother had to watch the kids because OP was in no condition. Their mom is angry at OP because she trusts her to make better choices. 

SHE IS NOT A FREE CHILDCARE

OP told her that her free time is valuable and she wasn’t free child care.

SHE GOT ANGRY

OP’s husband had already had a few, so his brother had to stay sober. 

OP’s husband thinks she should have tried talking to them again for the fiftieth time instead of getting angry. But she thinks they now know better than not to ask her if she even wants to watch the kids.

She wants to know if she is a jerk for doing this

YOUR HUSBAND IS A JERK

“And your hubby is the biggest jerk. He was just as happy with the previous scenario because he still got to drink and socialize while You were the one being held hostage to the expectation of forced babysitting duties.

He didn’t even remain sober to help you watch his nieces and nephews. He held the exact same expectation as his family that he could drink and schmooze while you chased the kids.

And isn’t he such a great guy to bring a babysitter for the family? He got all the benefits and goodwill of doing the family a favor while you were stuck with the actual work of it.

He should have put a stop to it from day 1 (and if he was the one who was stuck with the kids from the beginning, he would have).”

THEY MUST BRING A BABYSITTER

“They should start bringing a sitter or trading off which parent stays sober during each visit.”

THEY ARE NOT RESPECTING THE BOUNDARIES

“You’re not free childcare for your husband’s family. Since they can’t respect your boundaries, they have to learn the hard way.”

YOU GO OUT

But next time, do something even better: don’t be there. Go out with friends, book a day at a SPA, or whatever else.

They have clearly shown they don’t value your company, but only the free babysitting services you provide. Not your child, not your responsibility, and absolutely not worthy to waste a day with such jerks.
