He Repeatedly Refused to Babysit His Widowed Brother’s Daughter, but When His Brother Dumped Her on His Doorstep Anyway, He Threatened to Call the Police

A man recently went online to ask if he’d been wrong after his refusal to babysit his four-year-old niece escalated into a huge argument. Here’s his story.

There were tragic circumstances

“I have a 27-year-old brother who has a four-year-old daughter,” the 29-year-old began. “His daughter’s mom passed away due to birth complications, and he’s been raising her mostly alone ever since.”

He said no

“He recently asked me if I could babysit her for the night so he could go on a date, but I refused because I’m not experienced with kids, and frankly, because I simply don’t want to.”

His brother kept asking

The man explained that his brother had kept asking, claiming that he didn’t have the money to afford a babysitter. The man had continued to refuse.

But then the story took an uncomfortable turn.

His brother left his daughter anyway

One evening, at around 7 p.m., there was a knock at the door. He answered it to find his four-year-old niece standing there. He let her in and tried calling his brother, but he wasn’t answering.

After half an hour of trying to reach his brother, the man sent his brother a message saying that if he didn’t collect his daughter within the next 15 minutes, he was calling the police for child abandonment.

The man’s brother arrived 20 minutes later, but fortunately for him, his brother hadn’t called the cops.

The man’s brother was furious with him and began cussing him out in front of his daughter.

The man eventually had enough of this and ordered his brother out of his house. His brother eventually left, taking his daughter with him.

Afterwards, the man began receiving a stream of messages from his brother, accusing him of failing as both a brother and an uncle. He also accused the man of not loving his niece and seeing her as a burden.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the man’s brother complained that he hadn’t been intimate with a woman since his daughter was born and that the man was mean to have denied him just one night of fun.

The man replied that his brother’s romantic life wasn’t his problem, but this only made his brother angrier.

Was he wrong?

The man’s boyfriend was telling him that they could have taken care of his niece for the evening and that the man was being unfair toward his brother. The man asked the internet for a second opinion.

The internet responded

The internet took a nuanced view of the situation. “Both things can be true,” observed one. Your brother needs to figure this out, and you could have done him a favor. However, leaving the kid without permission is so far over the line, the line is a dot.”

“Your brother shouldn’t have just turned up like that and dumped his kid on you,” agreed another. “That’s definitely wrong and petty; there’s no doubt about that. But I think you’re wrong for treating your brother like that in the first place. It’s your niece, dude; it’s one night for a few hours. You’re a grown man, not a 15-year-old.”
