A young mom-to-be wants her parents to help out once the baby arrives, but not under her roof. She prefers alone time with her fiancé to adjust to parenthood. However, her parents are unhappy with her request and think she is being unreasonable. They had an agreement that they could stay with her whenever they wanted, but she wants them to find accommodation elsewhere. The situation has caused tension, as her fiancé and parents disagree with her. Do you think she's being a**hole or is she justified in her request? Read on to find out.

New mom doesn't want parents staying with her after giving birth 😔

Expecting a baby in December, a woman's request for her retired parents to be in town to help out after the birth turned sour when she asked them to stay in a hotel instead of with her and her fiancé. The woman's parents had previously sold her their home for a reduced price and in exchange, she agreed to host them whenever they wanted to visit. However, now that she's about to become a mother, she wants some alone time with her partner to adjust to parenthood. Her father was upset about the cost of accommodation around the time of the birth and the mother was offended that her daughter didn't want her staying in the house. The situation has caused tension, with the woman questioning whether she was in the wrong. Read on for some reactions from commenters.
