In the world of parenting, conflict often arises when both parents have demanding careers. This is the story of a 35-year-old woman who recently switched industries and now works full time. She and her husband, a 36-year-old man working for his parents, used to alternate looking after their 1-year-old daughter. But with the career switch, our heroine suggested hiring a nanny or arranging for an extra day of childcare. Her husband dismissed the idea, promising to 'figure something out.' But what he figured out was far from what she expected. 😮👶💼

Career Woman vs Family Business: Who's Right? 🤷‍♀️

In a world where work-from-home is the new normal, our career woman finds herself in a tug-of-war with her husband over childcare duties. She insists that working from home doesn't equate to babysitting while working, a concept her husband, who works for his parents, seems to struggle with. She's standing her ground, refusing to jeopardize her new job and insisting that he find a solution to the childcare issue he dismissed earlier. Now, let's delve into what the internet thinks about this domestic stand-off. Are you team Career Woman or team Family Business? 🤔💼👪

NTA. Husband's refusal to help with childcare due to his mother's preference is disrespectful and unfair. Hold the line and insist on a fair resolution. 😲
