Is refusing to babysit my sister-in-law's kids justified? 🤔

A misunderstanding with my sister-in-law led to her calling the police on me, causing me to have to explain myself and avoid getting child abandonment on my record. Now, she wants to go back to our old childcare arrangement, but I've refused. Her overreaction was a *massive* one, and I work with kids, so I can't afford to have something like this on my record. Despite her apologizing, I don't think it's fair for me to risk my career and reputation by babysitting for her again. However, my refusal to babysit has caused her to potentially lose her job, and my family is pressuring me to forgive her and move on. But is it really my responsibility to babysit for her, especially after what happened? Let's take a look at some of the comments and reactions to see what others have to say.

Sister-in-law calls police on OP for a misunderstanding, now wants free babysitting again. NTA, SIL caused all consequences.
