I can't post this in my own journal and I know the answer to this but I am hoping someone will give me a better answer.
I have a new SIL. She is 23 and acts like she knows everything. Luckily they are years away from having kids. She has worked as a nanny on and off for several years. I am having several issues with her and I think they are starting to blur together to make me really dislike her (which is really unfortunate).
So here are my issues:
She says she is burnt out on being around kids and that she is afraid she won't want kids if she has to be around one more child. She says this to my face and in front of my son. - I do not know how to respond to this. She also makes comments about how she would never to this or that with her kids - all the while she is doing said things with my son. I have pointed out to her that she should not say things around kiddo that she does not want repeated since he is in a mimic phase.
She comes to me all the time and asks for advice. I always think a while before responding to her. And I always take everything she has told me into consideration. On most of these occasions I have been told that I do not know what I am saying and it is obviously "not my business" the moment I start giving her an answer.
I'm frustrated. I obviously know that I need to tell her to solve her own problems and leave me out of it. I hate drama and feel every conversation with this girl is pulling me in. I also feel that she is insulting me by the way she treats me.
