A mother recently asked her son to share his room with his grandmother for a few nights, but the son refused. The mother and father had earlier told their children that the bedrooms in their house were theirs to choose from, but they might have to share with visiting family members. The son, who chose the larger bedroom, was asked to give it up for Grandma and was offered sleeping arrangements in other rooms, but refused. The father suggested that the grandmother stays in a hotel, but the mother pointed out that the family couldn't afford it. The conflict has caused tension in the family, with the father calling the mother an a**hole for forcing their son to give up his room. What should the mother do? Read on to find out.

When a family member comes to visit, it's a common courtesy to offer them a place to stay. But what happens when your child refuses to give up their room for a few nights? In this case, a mother is faced with a dilemma when her son throws a fit about having to share a room with his grandma. Despite the original agreement that the larger room may be used for visiting family members, the son is unwilling to compromise. The mother is left with no choice but to put her foot down and remind her son of the deal. However, her husband suggests that they encourage the grandmother to stay in a hotel instead. With no one willing to foot the bill, tensions rise. Who is in the wrong here? Is it fair to force a child to give up their room for visiting family members? Or should the grandmother find alternative accommodations? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
