My hubby is employed by a business of a pleasant couple. There is a teenage daughter who keeps asking to baby-sit our three kids. Abby, there exists a special needs child and an infant. Even though the girl appears to become kind and responsible, our kids will be a challenge to have an adult, not to mention a teen.
My problem is, she will not visit or spend more time with me and my loved ones without her husband. Before our mom’s dying a couple of years back, I provided to buy her an air travel ticket to fly for a couple of days to go to. Because she’s very organized, I lately asked her in the future – inside my expense – and provided to pay her that helped me to declutter the house. She declined both invitations since i wouldn’t purchase a ticket for Harry. (I did not have the cash.)
Explain your refusal being an abridged form of that which you authored in my experience. Thank the lady on her kind offer and let her know that since your older child has special needs and also the baby requires constant supervision, you want to not have anybody baby-sit until they’re older. The reason is affordable, logical and also the truth.
I believe my sister’s marriage is extremely co-dependent. Abby, what must i do?
