Woman Accused of ‘Child Abuse’ and ‘Free Labour’ for Making Kids Do Chores

Woman Accused of ‘Child Abuse’ By Her Sister and Brother In Law for Making Kids Do Chores


“They said their kids aren’t my maids and that I can’t expect free labour. So I told them I won’t be babysitting anymore and to get out of my house.”

Do you agree with her decision?

Sharing her story to Reddit, the 22 year old woman says she was more than happy to babysit her five-year-old niece and four-year-old nephew for free but says she found herself in hot water after asking them to pack up the mess they made.

“I know they are kids and they will be messy. I deal with it, but I do expect them to clean up after themselves. Put away toys, throw out any leftover food, put clothes in the hamper, basically put stuff back where they found them,” she said in her Reddit post.

“Today I told the younger one to put his sweaty shirt in the hamper and he screamed at me ‘no’,” she said. “I admit I got annoyed but I told him again to put it away and he started throwing a fit saying ‘mummy and daddy said not to do anything you say. I was furious and asked the older one what he meant and she told me that her parents said they don’t do anything at home so why should they do anything here.”


Filled with anger the woman called her sister to confirm what she had just heard. “My brother-in-law then said they are not my maids and this is child abuse and I don’t deserve ‘free child labour’,” she said.

“I then told him that he doesn’t deserve free babysitting either and to ‘get the f*** out of my house’.”

BRAVO! What an ungrateful couple! Reddit commenters agreed and took to the comments section to voice their opinions.

“They’re raising disrespectful little kids. They will regret this in a few years,” one said.

“The parents act like she asked the kids to go plow the back forty and erect a barn. Ladies and gentlemen, this is one reason why so many entitled people are running around. They are taught they don’t have to do anything,” said another.

“Teaching kids to pick up after themselves isn’t free child labor, it’s teaching a basic life skill,” wrote a third.
