When this man feels guilty about a comment he made, he asks Reddit:

"AITA for telling someone their Autistic son should go to a group home?"

I(25m) live in a triplex alongside my girlfriend with our neighbors being my parents and my Cousin's family. This arrangement was fine at first however recently it has become an issue for me.

The issue itself lies with Jason(18) who is my cousin's severely autistic son and his need to be constantly looked after. This is because aside from being autistic he has Prader-Willi syndrome.

At first, I would only watch him for 1-2 hours at most while his mother ran errands or went to appointments. This however changed this past month when the visits kept longer and she began to force him on us unannounced. This led to both my girlfriend and I deciding to put an end to it.

On one of my days off last week, I went to her place to have a word with her. When I showed up she said she wanted to talk about something. This something was her asking if I could do overnight "babysitting" for Jason.
