Babysitting Drama: The Verdict 🏛️

Our heroine stood her ground, refusing to be a third parent on her day off. She's accused of being selfish and now fears her nephew thinks she doesn't like him. Her friends suggest she should've caved, for the child's sake. But she believes her brother and his girlfriend used their son as a weapon to manipulate her. What do you think? Was she right to insist on her day off, or should she have taken one for the team? Let's dive into the world's thoughts on this prickly predicament. 🌍🤔
