“Something bad may have happened”: Parents Scold Woman for Taking Their Son to A Ranch on Their Day Off Together but She Was Just Trying to Do a Good Thing

A woman turned to the Reddit community to seek their opinion on whether she was in the wrong for taking her nephew to a ranch without getting permission from his parents. Here’s what she shared about the situation.

There Was a Family Emergency

The woman’s mother-in-law had a stroke, and her brother-in-law had to stay with her for some time. So, he asked the woman and her wife to look after his 5-year-old son for a few days. It was an emergency, so they had to step in to help.

“We know him quite well, and it wasn’t a problem at all,” she said.

However, her wife was down with the flu at the time and had been ill for about two weeks. Her condition had improved, but she was still a bit worn out. On the first day, she had a tough time looking after her nephew while the woman was at work.

“When I returned home, my wife told me that entertaining her nephew was hard and asked me to keep him busy the next day so she could get some rest,” she said.

So, the next day, she decided to take a day off work and informed her wife that she was taking her nephew out to a ranch. 

“The ranch is 30 minutes out of town, and I have a few horses there. I go horseback riding every other week, and he loves animals. So, I figured he would like the idea,” she said.

They both enjoyed the trip. He fed the horses and got a chance to pet them. She didn’t let him ride any horse, but they watched a few horse rides. They also engaged in other exciting activities while they were in the area.

“We ate lunch, went on a walk in nature, and went to get my wife something like I always do,” she said.

They returned home after what she thought was a fantastic, memorable day. 

She Wasn’t Prepared for What Happened Next

When she told her brother-in-law about the outing, he was quite angry. He said that she shouldn’t have taken his child to the ranch, especially since his sister couldn’t go with them. He felt that she put his son in danger.

“His reason was that something bad could have happened, and he might have gotten an infection from interacting with the horses,” she said.

Her wife tried to calm him down, but he wasn’t having it. He told them that he would ask his friend to pick up his son, which he did.

The Woman Felt Guilty

Her wife felt pretty bad about the turnout of events, and this equally made her unhappy. 

“I can’t help but blame myself because it was my idea to take him to the ranch in the first place,” she said.

Did She Do Anything Wrong?

One user said, “You watched his kid in an emergency, and you took him out for a fun, wholesome, safe day, and he’s complaining about it?? Unbelievable!”

Another user said, “Your brother-in-law is cruel. You planned a fun day with his son, and he had fun. He only fed the horses and didn’t go on any horse rides, yet he got upset. I don’t see any issue here.”
