My aunt. She had her son at 22, was married at the time. For the first 6 mos she took care of him, her husband got deported and then she gave up. My cousin, 13 I believe at the time took over caring for her son. She moved in with her to help.
My cousin moved and then I started coming around more. She had a roommate who informed me that she had been making his breakfast and later in the day she would have to serve him dinner too because my aunt would not wake up until the night time.
So My freshmen year of HS I decided to attend school close to my aunt, an hour bus ride for me, and I would go early, give her son breakfast, the roommate would keep the door unlocked for me, then I would leave to school, I would also set out some snacks so he could eat during the day.
I would go back after school and serve him an early dinner. Then I would finally go home. I would leave my house at 6am, and not be back til 7pm every day because of this.
So She started hitting him with a belt, he was only two, I didn't know for sure if she did but I was suspicous, I hinted to other family that someone needs to take him. My grandpa now has custody, since he saw welts from the belt at 2, and my cousin is now 8.
She never goes to visit her son. Complains that my grandpa makes parental decisions and that he is too strict. Complains that she never gets alone time with oout the grandpa present but my mom set up a time where she would be the supervisor, as she has on other occassions, on July 3rd, where we also would celebrate July 4th early with fire works and family. She didn't even show up because my mom said that she couldn't bring a friend because she should spend time with her son. She was down the street and wouldn't even come see her son.
Now I just want to call her out so bd, and I always help her, next time she wants a ride or an extra couple dollars, you know what I will do, say yeah sure, just like she told her son, and then I will just not do it. Let her know how it feels. I feel like my mom should say more and the rest of the family but sadly they wont, im the closest to her, and imnot even that close, sdo I say anything?
