She Didn’t Take Her Niece to School Because She She Have a Coat and Now Her Sister Says She Was out Of Order

A young woman had a disagreement with her sister when she decided to keep her niece at home instead of sending her to school. The reason behind this decision was that the mother had not provided a coat, and considering the freezing weather, the aunt didn’t want the child to get cold at school.

Since the beginning of August, the woman had been taking her five-year-old niece to kindergarten two-three times per week due to her sister’s early work schedule. She would wake up at 5:15 AM, get ready, and drive to her sister’s house.

“It’s a hassle, but I love doing this. She’s the cutest, sweetest kid, and it’s bonding time,” she said.

However, there was a problem. While the woman took her niece to school, she was not responsible for picking her up. That was up to the child’s separated parents, who successfully co-parented.

Usually, the niece would remove her coat in the car after school, and her parents would forget to bring it inside, leaving it in one of their cars. This was a problem for the woman because she had to take her niece to school in freezing weather without a coat.

“I’ve been forced to bundle her up in 3-4 layers of sweaters in below-freezing weather,” she said. The woman has complained to her sister and her ex-husband multiple times. The school administrators even sent emails reminding parents to ensure their children wore coats in the morning.

The principal had also reminded the woman twice when she dropped her niece off without a coat. The woman felt embarrassed and thought her niece shouldn’t have to endure the cold, especially not so early in the morning.

Last month, she told her sister that either she or her niece needed to bring the coat inside, or she would stop taking her niece to school.

Then, on a freezing Friday morning, the woman realized that her niece didn’t have a coat again, so she called her sister, who admitted that all the coats were in their cars. Frustrated, the woman hung up and started looking for sweaters.

“Then I changed my mind and texted my sister that she can either take an hour off work to bring me a coat or I’m keeping my niece home with me, but I’m not taking her out in 16-degree weather without a coat,” the woman said.

Her sister was angry

Her sister didn’t see the message until 9 AM and called, furious that the woman hadn’t taken the girl to school. The woman replied that she was tired of going out of her way to take her niece to school when her sister couldn’t ensure the girl had everything she needed.

This argument has caused a rift between the sisters, and their family members are split over which one of them was in the wrong. “I’ll admit I was trying to be petty to teach her a lesson – but some people think my sister is basically innocent, and I broke her trust,” she said.

She turned to the internet for advice

One user said, “This isn’t a minor thing. Your sister and her ex need to make sure their kid has what they need to survive and thrive.”

Another user said, “I’ll tell you this – the school is documenting every time your niece shows up without proper clothing, especially after they send reminders out. There’s a better than decent chance that they would have hot-lined your sister if you showed up last Friday with no coat in 16° weather.”
