I saw a advice column letter a while back. The sister had gone into remission with her cancer and her husband was taking her on a trip. The letter was full of how inconvenient it was going to be to take care of her kids. That the sister made it clear she didn't have a choice, and how the niece cried the whole time her mother was away last time. And that the nephew had a mouth on him she didn't want her kids exposed to- and that be broke things.
My mouth dropped open.
Life isn't convenient. If the nephew is behaving like that, he's probably reacting to something and is having problems. I know people have to decide what they can handle, if they had another child that behaved like that, it would seem that they would work with it.
Maybe I'm unusual, but I can't imagine shutting the door on my nieces because it could be inconvenient or hard. You'd have to fight me off with a stick!
Tell me what you think
