Forced Babysitting or Paying Rent: What's Fair? 🤷

Tina's dad is standing his ground, insisting she either helps with childcare or pays rent. With her monthly expenses already totaling over $1200, Tina begrudgingly agrees to babysit three days a week. Despite the family's financial struggles and the challenges of adopting their niece, Tina's dad believes he's made the right decision. But, is it fair to force Tina to babysit when she's so adamantly childfree? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🧐
