A woman recently wrote to an online forum to ask for advice after her son accused her of “enabling” his pregnant sister by going to visit her instead of picking his kids up from school. Here’s her story.

The woman wrote, “I have three kids, but the problem involves my eldest, Kevin, who’s 31, and my youngest, Julie, who’s 22.”

“Kevin and Julie are very different people, and when they were growing up, Kevin found it hard to be nice to Julie, which is a pattern that I recognize even in their adulthood,” she added.

Kevin chose a more traditional path and studied, got a good job, got married, and had children. The woman is very proud of him.

Julie, on the other hand, dropped out of college to become a tattoo artist. She recently moved states with her fiancé after only a few months of them dating.

Julie was expecting a child in a few weeks. She and her partner were super excited. However, one day, Julie called her mother in tears.

Julie was worried that she was not ready to be a mother. What’s more, she and her partner had argued because he was too tired after work to help her with the nursery.

The woman did what any mother would do and offered to book a room near Julie to be with her during her hour of need. Julie was delighted.

When the woman told Kevin about her plans, he became upset. The woman typically collects his children after school, and he told her it was hard to find cover.

Kevin said that Julie had made her choices and needed to deal with the consequences. He even told the woman that going to see her was “enabling” Julie.

The woman and Kevin went back and forth. They couldn’t find a solution, so she told him that she was going and it didn’t matter what he thought.

Kevin texted the woman later. He told her that he’d found someone else to collect his kids from school from now on.

While the woman understood that Kevin was inconvenienced, she felt he should understand. She posted to an online forum and asked for a second opinion.

The internet responded

One poster said, “Despite everything, you are not obligated to look after his kids. They are his responsibility, not yours.”

While another declared, “Kevin chose to be in the situation of needing after-school care by having children. I’m assuming you were watching his kids for free. So he can suck it up to find someone else for a few days, even if he has to pay.”
