An 18-year-old girl found herself in a difficult situation while babysitting her two young cousins. Her aunt, a self-proclaimed hippie, enforced strict rules on her children, including a highly restrictive diet and a refusal to accept modern medicine. The teen noticed the negative impact these rules had on her cousins and decided to defy her aunt's wishes. However, when her actions were discovered, the family was thrown into chaos. Was she right to intervene or did she overstep her boundaries?
