She Didn’t Like Her Nephew Even After Spending Time With Him, but Her Sister Accused Her of Ageism and Said She Was No Better Than a Racist

A woman recently asked for some advice because her sister got mad when she said she didn’t like kids—including her own nephew. Here’s what happened.

They didn’t get along

A 26-year-old woman didn’t get along with her 35-year-old sister. They had little in common; the woman thought her sister was judgmental, and anyway, they lived on opposite sides of the world.

She had a son

Amy had a two-year-old son, Tom. Because of the pandemic and where she lived, the woman hadn’t really seen Amy and her family for a while.

They met occasionally

When travel became possible again, the family only met up once a year, so the woman still didn’t know her sister’s husband and son particularly well.

They tried their best

They did try, though. The woman said, “They take these opportunities to deepen our relationship by getting to know each other better during their visits.”

During the visits, the woman was also constantly asked to bathe, feed him, or entertain her nephew. She didn’t want to do any of that for one reason.

She only liked older kids

The woman said, “In the past, I’ve gotten along well with kids over a certain age because I’m fairly playful. The issue comes with really young kids.”

The only time the woman had had any real contact with younger kids was at work. She worked in a restaurant, and she knew that little kids were messy, badly behaved, and loud.

She told them the truth

The woman was honest with her sister. She said she didn’t want to spend time with Tom because she didn’t like kids.

Mike didn’t believe her

When Mike heard her, he said he’d felt the same, but when it was your family, you felt differently. The woman said, “Mike also chased me around the house while holding Tom, trying to get Tom to grab my hair or hug my face with his spit-covered hands.”

Amy was more understanding

Amy seemed to understand and said she wouldn’t force the relationship. She did want the woman to try to stay in contact with Tom, though. The woman agreed.

She asked if she’d changed her mind

A year later, Amy asked if the woman had changed her mind about disliking kids now she’d bonded a little more with Tom.

The woman had to be honest and tell her sister that nothing had changed.

She was called ageist

This really annoyed Amy. The woman said, “She claimed I was an ageist for disliking a whole group of people for something they can’t change and said I’m no better than a racist.”

She told the family

Amy then told the rest of the family that the woman was pushing her away. The woman said, “At this point, the only one in their family I care to build a relationship with is Tom, precisely because he hasn’t done anything wrong.”

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong not to lie and say she liked kids to keep the peace, or should she have kept telling the truth?

The internet responded

One person said, “It’s normal for some people to dislike children regardless of some people’s hurt feelings.”

Another person said, “You haven’t done anything wrong, and her not being able to understand that some people just don’t like kids is dumb.”
