A 16-year-old girl is caught in the middle of a family feud after refusing to babysit her father's wife's toddler daughter. The girl's father left her mother for his mistress, who became pregnant and gave birth to their daughter, May. The girl holds both Suzie and her father responsible for the affair and the fallout. When Suzie asked the girl to watch May for 10 minutes so she could shower, the girl refused and told Suzie to ask the child's father instead. When Suzie persisted, the girl lashed out, telling Suzie that she didn't care what happened to May and that it would be Suzie's fault if anything did happen. The argument escalated, and the girl's father was furious with her. The situation has caused a rift in the family, but an update suggests that the father has apologized for his part in the argument and that he will talk to the girl's mother about increasing her therapy sessions.

Misunderstanding cleared up between father and teenager regarding babysitting duties.

A teenage girl has become embroiled in a family dispute after refusing to babysit her father's wife's child. The girl, who harbors resentment towards her father and stepmother, explained that she was working on a school project with a friend when her stepmother asked her to watch the child for 10 minutes. The request was denied, and a heated argument ensued, with the stepmother eventually breaking down in tears. The girl's father was furious with her response and demanded that she show more respect to her stepmother. The incident has highlighted the ongoing tension between the girl and her father's new family, which began after he cheated on her mother with his current wife. Despite the difficult circumstances, the girl has been seeing a therapist to work through her feelings and has no ill will toward the children involved. The situation has since been resolved, with apologies made and plans for reconciliation. However, it remains to be seen how this will affect the long-term relationship between the girl and her father's new family.
