Paralyzed teen refuses to be a free babysitter for family
An 18-year-old paralyzed teen refused to babysit her sister's children, leaving her without a sitter during her husband's work Christmas party. Her mother expects her to be available as a free babysitter whenever her siblings need it, without even consulting her. The teen has plans with her friends, which her mother approved of, but her sister arrived with her three boys, and her mother expected her to babysit. When she refused, her mother called her an immature a**hole, and her sister was left without a sitter. Her mother thinks she should be grateful for having something to do, as she has no real social life due to being paralyzed. The teen is now questioning if she was in the wrong. However, after her mother berated her again, she decided to move in with a friend and her family. Plans are being put into motion, and she will no longer be available for babysitting. Let's discuss this story and share our thoughts on the matter.
