My daughter won't help out me, her sister and her soon to be born niece :(
My oldest lives on her own, and we're trying to figure out childcare for when the baby gets here. With our schedules, my 15yo and I/my husband can watch the baby 4 days a week. We need my oldest to watch her one day a week.
Today I talked to her about it and she flat out refuses. I kept trying to ask her why, etc, and she finally just exploded "I'm not wasting my time off watching her kid because she's an irresponsible idiot, and I'm annoyed you're paying for her college because she got knocked up when you didn't help at all with mine".
There's no reliable or affordable childcare in our area, and her community college classes go to much better use than pouring money into daycare. We didn't pay for her college because she got a well paying degree at an expensive school, and we wouldn't have been able to afford it.
I was texting her about this and said she wasn't being a good sister. Her response? "Go to hell, mom" and she's not answering texts or her phone now.
Does anyone have any advice? I'm so stressed and overwhelmed and angry at this whole situation.
