My cousin can't go to prom because her parents won't help out or watch her son :(
I asked why not and she said her parents refuse to watch her son when she's not at school and work because they give her free daycare for necessary things, not for fun. And they require her to pay them for all baby expenses and rent, which adds up to almost her whole pay check, so she can't afford a dress or tickets.
I feel so bad for her. I told my mom about it and she called my aunt, but she didn't budge and told her to mind her own business. I wish I had the money to help her to could babysit but we live far away.
What do you think? Prom is a right of passage. Them watching the baby for her isn't the end of the world.
