Quoting Mamas 1144:" It shouldn't be the 18 year olds responsibility to make sure things happen for her siblings. I was 10 ... [snip!] ... a child. She should learn responsibility but saying what she did to her husband is not the way to make things like that happen."
helping out w/your siblings once in awhile is a part of ''family life''. sorry you were forced into the situation u had to endure but the 2 cannot be compared. Children (even grown ones) need to respect their parents , exspecailly when they live at home still for ''free''. The child in question was asked b4 the plans were made and agreed to help out in this specific situation. If she doesnt want to help out and doesnt want to pay for her keep then she has no business living in that household. All she is doing is teaching her younger siblings how to be an uncaring, selfish, freeloader.....which is probably why her own mother kicked her out !
