Having grandchildren is a dream for all grandparents but wait for a second, we just may have spoken up too soon.
This next story is about a grandmother who says taking care of grandkids is not an easy task. Therefore, she is asking for her share of the money for the effort.
The granny has gone online to speak her mind about how her children find it alright to just dump their kids at her home, not realizing what impact it has on her own life.
“I just think there’s a lot of things involved here.You need to realize that life can be hard sometimes at this age but people seem to be taking me for granted”- she continued.
The decision is definitely unpopular and even her kids refuse to agree. But according to her, nothing is free in life and her kids need to realize that sooner than later.
She says that there is no guilty or remorse feeling attached to the move and she feels it actually needs to become a norm.
“It’s not an easy task handling kids these days. They’re nagging, crying, and more energetic than before. Did I mention how they’re so much smarter and tech-savvy? It’s hard work and if my kids can pay for a babysitter then they sure can pay for me”- she further explained.
But some people feel that there are some bonds and relationships in this world that can’t be attached to money. And this just might be one of them.
Therefore, this granny is being labeled as someone that’s money hungry all of the time. But she says that she couldn’t be bothered about what people think anymore.
According to her, doing what’s best for her is the best way forward and this is just one of them. Do you agree with the decision or not?
I disagree grandmas should not ask for money.
I love looking after my grandchildren, we learn so much from each other, I have weekly play dates with mine, no money required
