Don't you think this is insane

My SIL is 23 weeks pregnant. She's 26! She lives at home with her parents and 2 sisters, 19 and 17. The 17 year old is autistic. My SIL has asked if she can have their master bedroom. They gave it to her and the baby too come. They will have to live in the basement on a pull out. Now she has told them, that she doesn't want her autistic sister within 60 feet of the new baby. Which means they will have to move the girls bed down to the basement with them. So basically the 19 year and 26 and newborn with have an entire 4 bedrooms to themselves upstairs. While his two 50 plus year old parents and their special needs daughter are stuff in a tiny basement.

** these people spend most of their days in their rooms as well**
His parents where happy to give the room to her....

  • I think that if she wants the special needs sister to stay away from the baby then she needs to move. That is very ignorant!!

  • I wonder if there would be anything they would say no to there has to be a limit? if its their house why not make them stay in the basement? I would say something to them it sounds like they might be being bullied. It would not hurt to ask your DH or SO to ask questions. I had a friend and her brother and his wife were bullying the parents not to add worry just check it out.
