It's nice to help your family with childcare if you can. But what if they don't want to repay the favor later on?
One mom is asking whether she's in the wrong for expecting free baby-sitting from the sister whose child she helped raise. She posted on Reddit's "Am I the a-hole?" forum about the conundrum.
My(32F) sister(37F) gave birth to my nephew Luke when she was 20 years old. It was an unexpected pregnancy and the father was married, so he didn't want any involvement his child. My parents and sister had to go to work so I was responsible to babysit Luke. It was never a burden, I have always loved kids and love my nephew dearly. So, for years i babysat every week, to the point that Luke calls me his second mother nowadays. Only when he was 12 my sister decided he was old enough to take care of himself so I stopped the babysitting.
