Everyone has a right to make decisions about what they want to do and what they don’t want to do. There’s no point blaming them for not meeting your expectations.
The Original Poster (OP) took it to the forum, and asked “Am I wrong for not taking my niece to watch the Barbie movie?”. We want to know from you.
OP is 19 years old, and she has two nieces, Kalya and Violet. Kayla is 11 and she’s the daughter of OP’s brother. Violet is 5 and she’s the daughter of OP’s sister, Emma.
The last day OP took Kayla to watch the Barbie movie as a treat for her 11th birthday. OP planned it along with her brother.
EMMA FOUND OUT
A few days ago, Emma found out about these plans and asked OP if she would take Violet as well. OP told her that Violet is obviously welcome if Emma comes along with her. Emma said no.
Emma said she wouldn’t be able to come but insisted OP take Violet to the movie. OP gently said “no” because she wanted to enjoy her day off and watch the movie.
OP DIDN’T FEEL LIKE WATCHING OVER VIOLET
Violet is young and dependent. She’s also autistic and can be quite handful at times. OP didn’t feel like watching over her. She wanted a relaxing movie day.
EMMA GOT ANNOYED
Emma got annoyed and told OP that she just had to watch over Violet during the movie and that it was a small task.
OP WAS PLAYING FAVORITES?
Emma told OP that she was unnecessarily excluding Violet and that she was playing favorites.
She also mentioned that OP never offered to babysit Violet, whereas she never had a problem with taking Kayla to activities.
OP WAS BEING SELFISH?
Emma told OP that she didn’t have to deal with Kayla being sad over this situation because she doesn’t care and is selfish. OP told her to drop it, but Emma didn’t.
Eventually, OP’s brother got involved and told Emma that if she wanted Violet to watch the movie so badly then she could come along and pay for her tickets. That escalated the situation even more.
Now OP wants to know if what he did is wrong.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
OP eventually ended up taking on Kayla to the movie, and Kayla had a blast. But this entire situation left OP feeling really bad about herself.
Even her parents told her that what she did was wrong, and now she is just confused if what she did was really right or was it wrong!
WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK?
“Mostly because it’s rude to assume someone will take a kid for what is essentially free babysitting, but also because Barbie is not a kids movie. It’s rated PG-13, and the overall theme will go way over a 5 year old head.”, said one user.
“It’s also completely unfair to the many adults in the theater to have a child far too young who is known to be difficult to manage and is likely to be disruptive in the theater.”, said another user.
