When my neighbor asked me to babysit her son, I didn't expect to be yelled at for feeding him my home-cooked meal. I made my favorite roti and brinjal sabzi, which the kid loved, but the mom accused me of forcing her son to eat 'ethnic food' without permission. She even claimed my food was too spicy and could make him sick! I tried to explain that it was vegan-friendly and healthy, but she didn't want to listen. Now I'm worried that I did something wrong. What do you think? Did I cross the line or was the mom overreacting? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

What do you do when you are asked to babysit for a few hours and the kid can't eat candies and is allergic to almonds? You feed him a vegetable sandwich and orange juice of course! But what happens when the kid likes the food you made for yourself instead? That's the dilemma our protagonist faced. Linda, the neighbor, accused her of force-feeding her son ethnic food and sabotaging her efforts to transition him to the vegan lifestyle. But was that really the case? Our protagonist is worried and wonders if Ben could really fall sick from eating her food. Do you think she was at fault here or was Linda overreacting? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
