I’m 21m and my sister is 18f. The day my sister turned 18, she moved out with some friends and they all share a small apartment together just a mile away from us. I however stayed because my college was close to home and i wouldn’t waste much on living expenses.
I started giving my parents money for rent, electricity and water, and I buy my own stuff that i need like laundry detergent, groceries, etc.
Four months ago, my sister came out and told us she was two months pregnant. My parents were obviously disappointed but they hid that from her and offered to help in any way with the baby. And they’ve been doing pretty much everything. They’ve gone out and bought baby clothes, toys, a bassinet, bottles, blankets, everything.
Now because my sister lives with other roommates, she said she can’t have the baby there with her and her boyfriend and convinced my parents to let the baby live here since she’s less than a five minute drive away from us. My parents agreed with no argument even... keep reading on reddit ➡
Awhile back, my brother married a woman who had an 11 year old son named "Billy". A year later my SIL gave birth to a little girl. Two years later, she gave birth to a boy. Billy, who was 14 by this time, was treated like an outsider. My SIL and brother saw him as a burden who spoiled their picture perfect family. If you asked my SIL how many kids she had, she would say two. Billy started acting out. He got involved with a bad group of kids and started getting into trouble. He started failing all of his classes. He eventually got into drugs and was suspended from school. My brother and SIL were fed up with him.
I asked my brother if Billy could spend the summer with me and my husband. We have a hobby farm and I thought maybe getting away from his life for awhile could help him some. Well, they were more than happy to get rid of him (my SIL's words). It was kind of rough the first few weeks. He had a lot of anger issues. But my husband kept his hands and mind busy doing work on the far... keep reading on reddit ➡
If things are safe, We will get married in September. We want a small wedding. We only want 25 couples (or 50 people). And because the wedding will be at a hall with an open bar we want everyone to be over 21. We invited my step-sister(shes 16 years older than me ) and her husband, but when we received the invite her plus one was my 23 year old autistic nephew. Not her husband. “Johnny” my nephew has never spoken a word in his entire life. But he does make loud noises, constantly. He can’t sit still and if they want to calm him he plays with a very loud fire truck.
I love Johnny but my wedding is not where I want him. I remember about 8 years ago Johnny was at a wedding and yelled during the moment of silence. When his parents moved him outside you could still hear him
Also Johnny ONLY wears baggy grey sweats. I want my guests to wear certain colors and grey is not one of them
When I explained this to my stepsister she called me a terrible person. My friends support me but... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have been saving money for my niece and nephew since their birth as I thought I wouldn't be having children of my own. Since then I've saved 10K$ for each kid. It's not a lot of money but enough to pay for a few semesters of college.
My nephew is extremely bright and he managed to get a full ride scholarship to a really good school. He chose to buy a second hand car and save the rest of the money. He said he's going to use it as emergency cushion and I think that's responsible.
When my niece turned 18 I also gave her the money which she has used to fund three semesters of college. Now she is asking for more money because she thinks it's unfair that I also gave her brother the same amount when he has a scholarship.
In my view it's fair to give them both the same amount of money. Not giving her brother money feels like punishing him for getting the scholarship. I told her that I would not be funding any more of her education. It's up to her to fund the rest of her semesters. She... keep reading on reddit ➡
Context. Story happened in early 2020. I (F31) have a brother (34), we're both no longer speaking to our parents. He has been with his GF for 10 years who has no sibling but is very close to her parents. Four years ago, they told me they were having a baby. Of course, I was thrilled for them.
Few months later, BOOM baby boy! (G) For reasons stated earlier, we're pretty small family, I'm his only aunt, I don't want children.
Here's the thing. While she was pregnant, B & GF kept implying stuff like how awesome it was going to be for them that I will be there for my nephew, for babysitting etc. TBH, at that point, it felt... awkward? Not at first, but they were really pushing it. Stuff like "Don't worry babe, if we want a dinner date, we'll drop baby at auntie" so I was very clear at the time : yes, I want a relationship with that kid, no, I won't be a third parent. Ok to babysit, not to parent every time they feel like "just being a couple" in their words.
So I did that. I babysi... keep reading on reddit ➡
My nephew is almost 5 years old and he is still not reliably potty trained. This is not a cognitive issue, this is the result of my sister in law's "parenting style" which I strongly disagree with.
She's a big proponent of "child led development" which means she lets her kid do basically whatever he wants, whenever he wants. He goes to bed when he wants to go to bed, usually after lots of "gentle suggestions" from his parents. He sleeps wherever he wants, too. He still occasionally breastfeeds for comfort. He wears diapers in public because he only uses the toilet when he feels like it. He knows how to use the toilet, he just doesn't always want to. He eats whatever he wants to eat. You get the idea - there are no rules or boundaries in this kid's life.
He's a pretty well behaved kid despite this, he doesn't have tantrums etc, probably because there's never been a need since he gets whatever he wants immediately.
I recently babysat him while his mom was at a doctor's appointment a... keep reading on reddit ➡
About a month and a half ago my 21 year old nephew lost his job due to the pandemic and then was illegally evicted from his apartment (he wasn't on the lease and his friend kicked him out so there's nothing that can be done). He was planning to move in with his girlfriend who lives in another state but that is not possible until the end of this month. He called me and asked if he could stay at my place for a month because he literally had nowhere else to go. I agreed but with one rule: he has to buy his own food and cannot eat any of ours. I have three kids to feed and I can't afford it.
At first everything was fine but of course he eventually ran out of money. Our state's unemployment office is taking forever with his claim and no one will hire him since he's moving out of state. There have been a few times where I let him have some of our leftovers and I cooked for his birthday, but usually he has to find something on his own. I'm not going to lie, there are quite a few days where h... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my older sister is a narcissist. Plain and simple. We were never close since we had a pretty big age gap (she’s 36 I’m 19) but she was always evil. I remember she used to pinch me as a child and said I ruined her life because my parents had to pay attention to their only other child. She was 17 when I was born but at the time had already dropped out of high school and was in rehab. I never really saw her until I was around 5-6, and that’s when I started hating her.
She started having kids when I got to middle school. She has five. They were all born addicted to drugs. My parents adopted them and we have been basically raising them as she goes in and out of prison. My parents have always enabled her behavior, letting her take the kids to their dads house (who never saw them any other time their mom wasn’t in jail) for days on end. This causes me major anxiety since they’re so young and I don’t trust her or her baby dad.
My parents also give her money all the time which she spend... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm using a throw away account for various reasons.
I am a 21F full time university student. My nephew is a 6M who is at risk for being placed in foster care due to my sister's substance addiction. My nephew's biological father is not in the picture.
As a result, my family has the option of taking my nephew in instead of allowing him to go into the foster system. I do not want to take my nephew, so I offered to move out of my home with my partner. My mother flipped out, stating to me that she "needs me" and I'm "her emotional support." Basically, she doesn't want me moving out. Since my mother doesn't want me moving out, my family wants me to take on custody of my nephew instead since I am young OR to help my mother with raising my nephew.
I denied both options because I don't want to raise him. I do not feel emotionally mature enough or emotionally stable enough to raise a child. I have dropped everything in my life to attend school full time. I told my family that a child deserv... keep reading on reddit ➡
Few years ago I started a WhatsApp chat with one nephew because I had a question about a Star Wars themed Xmas present and wanted to try advice on which present to buy for his younger brother. It’s now evolved to a channel of me (M48), Nephew A, B, C (M19, M17, M16) from two different sisters.
98 percent of the chat is “Kobe vs MJ vs Lebron” or “Obi Wan vs Rey in a force battle” or “Why free weights over resistance bands” or “Ford eco boost vs Coyote 1/4 vs 1/8 Race”. There are lots of pics of food we had or want to eat or cars that they want to buy one day. 2 percent of the chat is life advice: “this girl likes me but I can’t stand her” or “my buddy just stole the girl I liked” or “coach is favouring this other guy and it’s not fair” or “Uncle Rumble, should I take Poly Sci 301” etc.
Ever since this group started I’ve policed and moderated (no girlie pics, no talk of drugs, no illegal activity chat) the chat and I update my sisters semi regularly when I see an issue that they sh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and if the nephew wasn’t a made-up excuse I think it was probably her son. Lots of people support nieces and nephews, but something about seeing him so many days of David’s trip made me wonder if she wasn’t just too busy taking care of her kid. Having a child would shatter David’s illusion and delusions, but a nephew wouldn’t. What do you all think?
i have three nephews (1M, 4M and 6M). i also have four dogs (4M rough collie, 4F rough collie, 7M cavalier spaniel and 10 month M borzoi). i live in my own apartment.
the collies and spaniel are ok with kids, theyre gentle but my borzoi gets nervous around kids. however, my nephews arent good with dogs. my oldest nephew last halloween kicked a 4 month old bichon puppy because it was licking him and broke his (the bichon’s) rib. i paid for the surgery and everything and took him home immediately, confiscated his candy and reprimanded him HEAVILY. because of this, he is not allowed around dogs. as for the other two, one’s a baby and doesnt know what to do with dogs so he just smacks them. the other screams a lot and makes my dogs (+ neighbours) nervous). because of this, my dogs stay in my bedroom away from the kids when the kids are over. absolutely no dogs for them.

So my sister's ten year old was visiting over at my place the other day, and he happened to bring up the subject of drugs. His mother has done quite the job instilling in him the danger of drugs, and he basically seems to have the view that all drugs are lethal / highly dangerous. As someone who's experimented quite a bit with drugs, it annoyed me a to hear some of the inaccuracies he was spouting. I know for a fact that my sister doesn't do any drugs, and I know that she has no real knowledge about them, so I don't necessarily think it's correct for her to be giving him wrong info about the subject.
I told my nephew in a very straightforward manner that not all drugs were bad, many of them can actually lead to a really good time if used safely. I emphasized the facts for him - it's all about dosing (don't take too much, know the limits of what your body can handle). Of course I also told him there were some drugs that he shouldn't take under any circumstances, but also there are othe... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my(24) nephew (13) really trusts me. We have more of a brother relationship than uncle. He texted me he needs to get stuff off his chest. Apparently, he has tried lsd, molly, and morphine( as far as he told me). He also told me he has been messing around with ladies. I told him I’ll talk to him today about it, and I won’t judge just tell him my story and give him advice.
At his age I was smoking weed and messing around but not with harder stuff until 15+. I’m not against drugs, but starting them so young also created a lot of issues for me. I want to give him the right advice, maintain his trust, and not come off as condescending or judgmental. Any advice for this conversation?
My plan is to tell him how our family, despite looking successful from the outside, has a history of drug abuse problems. I want to encourage him to hold off on experimenting so his brain can develop, but I know when I was his age I wouldn’t have listened to me.

A few years ago, my mom asked if I could give her coworker, Laura, some restaurant suggestions. Laura was coming into the city for a wedding, and brought her family (husband, and two kids ages 10 and 8) for a week long vacation. I suggested I also give them a tour of the city, considering it was their first time here. They took me up on the offer, and I had a nice time walking around with Laura and her family. While doing so, I learned that it was Laura’s sister who was getting married, and everything else that was planned for the special day.
The wedding would take place at a popular science museum near by. Laura was especially happy because apparently children were welcome, and her sons (Jake and Sean) were excited to come. Additionally, with Jake being autistic and semi-nonverbal, it would be nice for them to step away and explore the museum in case he became overwhelmed with the festivities. It was a win-win for everyone. We finished walking around the city, I wished them well, a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Using a throwaway. Short one for you guys. My sister has kids and they are lovely. I love being an aunt. I see them twice a month and try to keep up with what they do. However, my partner and I don’t personally want kids of our own. We are childfree and instead to stay so. My sister is really disappointed by this and keeps hinting I’ll change my mind. She points out how good I am with her kids, and she says that once we have kids we’ll realize how incomplete our life is without them. I keep telling her it’s not going to happen, yet she keeps trying to convince me.
Finally, last weekend, we had a Skype call with her family and after her kids got off the call, she said they asked when they would have a cousin. I tried to reiterate that we don’t want kids, but then she decided to ask her patented question of “but what if you got pregnant by accident?” She always asks this like it’s some trump card because I usually say we’ll cross that bridge if that happens.

Me and my nephew have also been very close, to the point where he is more like my son then anything else. I've never spoiled him to a huge extent. He turned 18 recently and he informed me he had been given a place in a university, and a good one at that.
At this point I should say what i do for a living, I'm an investor and in my early 20's I made a fortune so much so that If i wanted i could just stop working as a whole. I'm not saying £30,000 is nothing but I can afford it.
This is where the problem arises I informed my sister that I was planning this and she flipped saying I'm taking away experience in his life and what not but I personally think me paying him this money will relieve him of anxiety and allow him to focus more on studying. But my sister fully disagrees and said I'm ruining his "childhood".
I dont see the problem with what I've done so I thought I'd get reddit's opinion.

This week’s controversial pod is another example of a bigger problem than Kyle forgetting to fix errors in the audio.
I like Kyle for rolling with Bill’s jokes but is he really the guy who is going to listen to the raw conversation between Bill and Russillo, and jump in and flag trouble spots? Or tell Bill while he’s editing that, hey man, this episode could be a problem for political reasons, racial risks or something else and we should pull parts of it?
This week won’t be the last sensitive spot unless Bill totally ignores 2020 politics. Even that might make people mad.
I worked on a radio show a long time ago and one lesson was a good producer is looking out for listeners but also the host. Someone who is there in real-time and spotting problems before they happen. And pushing the host to be smarter and get better.
Some of that comes with getting reps that Kyle just doesn’t have. I’m sure there’s a junior cable news person or radio veteran who’d love to work for Bill and alread... keep reading on reddit ➡

My parents asked me to get my nephew's name tattooed on me as well, but I declined.

I was mates with a guy back high school until he got involved with my sister. I will admit he wasn't the greatest of guys at all and was deep into drugs (much better now and is working) but yet again he was the one she chose to sleep with and fell pregnant. She dropped out of college and left to stay with our aunt out of the county during the pregnancy. I was just told she left to the UK for a job.
That was 5 years ago and she's married to another guy who I believed was the father (and is acting like it) but after my aunt kind of made it slip to me that she was pregnant when she left I started connecting the dots and realized it was my old mate's son. I messaged her to confirm and she just sent me a message saying I should mind my business. Well he should know so I called him and told him that he has a son and hung up.

I’m just going to put this out there, I’m not the biggest fan of kids, but I’m very nice to them. My nephew is 8 and his mom (my sister) hasn’t taught him certain manners yet. My sister sometimes comes over to tan, and she gives no warning for when she’s coming.
So today was really hard emotionally for me, and I wanted to make cinnamon rolls to make myself feel better. Right as they were coming from the oven, the door busts open and in comes my sister and nephew. Before I could say hello, my nephew runs in the kitchen and immediately just grabs half of my cinnamon rolls (there were 4) without asking.
I tell him (as nicely as possible) that those aren’t for him, and asked if he’d like something else to eat. My sister gets a “tone” with me asking why he can’t have a cinnamon roll. I told her these were for me, and that I’d be happy to make give something else. Well he immediately starts throwing a tantrum and shouting how he wants a cinnamon roll and how I’m mean.

Let me (21F) start off with: I don’t like kids. I can’t stand them, but I do keep that view to myself. I don’t care if people have children, but I won’t and I never will. I don’t know why I have this strong dislike towards them, but I do.
My sister (27F) started her temp work at a different country before lockdown so she’s stuck over there, but BIL (22M) is a stay at home dad with my nephew (1M). Since my sister can’t work now due to the quarantine, she’s been having trouble sending money back to him.
BIL can work, but he doesn’t want to and thinks online work is stupid (his words). I work as a freelance artist and live off commissions, so I took offense to that. I’m not confrontational, so whenever he says things that he doesn’t think is offensive, I just usually ignore him.
We don’t interact unless it’s at a family event or he texts me for my sister’s location.

This happened three days ago, on Saturday. Now that everyone has sort of calmed down and I don't think Chris Hanson is coming after me, I can share.
My wife and our two kids were spending the weekend at her sister's place. After a day of running around outside and playing in the pool, my kids were napping and I decided to grab a shower.
Their guest bathroom has a recessed door with a broken-ish handle. It does lock, but the lock isn't obvious and it's hard to lock/unlock. If I was pooping, I probably would have locked it, but everyone can hear the shower and I didn't really think about it or think it was a big deal.
So, I'm showering, and I hear the door knock a bit as it opens. I say "Hello?" like anyone would. No response, but I see my six-year-old nephew's head pop around the curtain and then pop back out. Whatever.
Maybe thirty seconds later, I turn off the water, open the shower to grab the towel and towel off. My nephew Stewie is laying across the commode, naked, pointing... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ok, I've posted on here before but just to catch on my backstory. Currently living with the in-laws for a few months whike my house is being built.
SIL and her partner had IVF, successfully got pregnant, had the kid and all through this I told her several times that I'm happy for them, I really am, but I'm just not a kid person... so please don't be offended or annoyed if I don't get all enthusiastic about wanting to hold him or make cringey baby noises to entertain him... it's just not my bag, she seemed to be understanding early on.
In my previous post I was having dinner with the In laws and the extended family, when the MILs cousin was making a fuss over baby and said I should have a hold... to which I politely say "no thanks, not really my thing" to which SIL gets vocal about and says something to the effect of "he's never had a hold, he never says hello... he wants nothing to do with him!" Which put a heap of awkward silence at the dinner table. This was one of a few times I'd... keep reading on reddit ➡
My nephew is named after both his grandads, unfortunately for him he has a pronounced lisp and his full name heavily uses the letter 'S'. So the poor sod can't even say his own name.
He's spoken to both my sister and BIL about this and they both refuse to let him change his name, they always say something about how it doesn't matter what others think about him and he should be happy with who he is. Which I don't agree with.
My sister told me to swing by the house because she needed help with something and she told me that he's been getting into 'altercations' at school (when they were opened), acting out at home and just generally being a bit of a knob to his mum and younger siblings, so to have a word with him.
Well apparently he's been getting bullied for a while now and just wants to change his name so he doesn't have to go through this for the rest of his life.
At this point it's a given he's going to change his name so I basically told him he can just wait few years or if he d... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister has been working overtime lately , and since my parents are elderly I have been watching my nephew (11). Because she works long shifts, she has been dropping him off for two days at a time.
My sister is a really Type A personality, I’m not saying that to insult her or anything, it’s just how she is. She has my nephew’s days planned to a T, and even brings him with all of his breakfast, lunch, diners and snacks for the time he will be with me. I have told her that this isn’t necessary, but she does it anyway.
I want to be clear that I’m not trying to insult her, but the meals that she packs are pretty boring. Frozen sausage biscuits for breakfast, a turkey sandwich for lunch and a pasta dish for dinner. My nephew is actually a very adventurous eater, and I love to cook, so he always asks me for some of what I’m eating instead of his own meal.
We have used this as an activity that we can do together. We have cooked all sorts of things from sushi to curry to tacos.

I honestly wanna cry, I hurt his feelings and now my brother is mad at me.
My sister in law passed away about 3 months ago, leaving my brother and his only child (13m) alone. Since then, my nephew has been really affectionate towards his dad. He’ll snuggle with him a lot and often holds his hand.
We had a family gathering thing since q-word, )it’s not allowed in most subs) is over in our town. It ended up lasting till really late and some of us stayed to watch a movie, them included.
He sat partially in his dad’s lap, with his head on his chest. Me, being stupid and not thinking, jokingly called him a baby. Everyone shot me the death glare and I realized what I’d said, I apologized so much. I feel really bad because I knew he was holding back tears.
I ended up leaving before they started the movie, just to avoid awkwardness. I effed up so bad, I literally can’t even express how bad I feel.
TL;DR: I made fun of my 13 year old nephew’s coping mechanisms.
I’ve posted many times about this MIL and I pray one of these days the stories will end.
Small back story. So MIL lives in section 8 housing, hasn’t worked since my husband was in middle school, borrows money all the time, and takes care of two kids 4 and 11 that she often tries to pawn on us. I’m pregnant and have a 3 year old. Since work is currently shut down I’ve been making money babysitting my friends toddler while she works from home.
So today DH gets a text from MIL inviting us to go get ice cream with her since her stimulus check finally hit. She can treat us for once. He said sure, but they never settled on when. Well around 8pm we’re relaxing after dinner and hadn’t heard anything from her, so we agree to just drop it and enjoy a lazy night.
8:15 we get a knock on the door. It’s the 4yo. We look out the window and see MIL still at the car looking through the back seat, so we let him in and wait for her. 10 minutes go by and she calls us from the car.

My sister has a 9 year old son ,who I will call J. He has a terrible attitude, and my sister has a very bad habit of dropping J off at my doorstep for me to babysit him without any notice whatsoever.
She did this again this weekend, probably because she was going out with her friends. I heard the doorbell ring, and by the time I got to the door, J was standing there and my sister drove away. So I let him in.
After a while, I noticed that the wallet that was sitting by the bedside table was missing. I asked J if he knew where it went, to which he smugly replied "You can't prove that I stole the wallet!", which means he obviously stole it. I told him that he needs to hand it over immediately, and he continued to be smug about it. So I called my sister and told her to come pick him up. She refused, and said that I need to deal with him myself.
I have had many prior incidents with J, so this was my last straw. I told him that if he doesn't hand it over, I will call the police. He though... keep reading on reddit ➡

Thanks to Covid19 I got some freetime for myself and offered to look at my nephew (4 years) when their working schedules don't match. No biggy did it all the time before and we always have a good time so everything good. My nephew wanted to play in the garden. It's a fenced garden with a fence where you can look through to a not so busy street. We played some soccer and after that we wanted to buy some groceries so I told him to just play in the garden and I get a quick shower and after that we get some shopping done.

So, I'll start by saying that I'm considerably wealthier then the rest of my family and am childfree. This means I've got cash to treat my nieces and nephews, and well as contributing towards a fund for them once they turn 18.
I'm particularly close with the oldest out of them, my 14 year old nephew "John" because we have a lot in common. We're both nerds with high-functioning autism.
John is the son of my brother and my SIL. They're basically the Dursley's from Harry Potter; anything which doesn't fit into their world view of being British, proper, middle-class is weird. They don't have a great relationship with John which they blame it on his autism rather then the fact that they constantly make fun of his hobbies and his friends.
John is also a furry. I am not, it's not something I really understand on a personal level, but I have a surprisingly amount of friends who are. Now, furries are often misunderstood as being a fetish but that's not always the case. For people like Joh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am 45 and only started fifa this year. Started in div 10 and now float between 6 and 7. Usually finish rivals g3 or occasional g2. So on the whole, not great.
My nephew is 18 and has been playing religiously since he was 12. He is in div 2 and gets elite or gold 1 in champs.
I decided last week, as I was feeling confident in my improved performance, to have a match against him.
Oh my fucking god, how embarrassing. He smashed me all over the place. Not even sure I touched the ball more than 5 times.
It really knocked my confidence and the rest of my weekend league was a disaster.
Still confident that I can improve over the next couple of years though, maybe.
