One MUM has been branded ‘manipulative’ for asking her kids to be invited on vacation with her sister – who is planning a surprise marriage proposal.
One woman took to Reddit to explain how she was planning to propose to her Disney-loving girlfriend at Disneyland Paris.
When she told her sister about her plans, her sister insisted that her children be invited on the holiday, even though she said no.
The woman who posted under the username u / throw 03r5, wrote: “Since my girlfriend is obsessed with Disney, that’s where I planned to propose to her to make it even more special.
“My sister knew I was proposing when she helped me choose the ring and she was very supportive until she found out when I was going to propose.
“She disapproved of it because we weren’t kids and had said we weren’t kids, it was ‘weird’ and if I wanted to go there I should have brought her kids.” 10 and six years old.”
“I love my niece and nephew but this was a special trip for me and my girlfriend.”
The Reddit user went on to explain that her sister had told the kids that they were invited on holiday, only to tell them that shortly afterwards their aunt hadn’t invited them.
The post said: “The next time I saw her kids, they were upset because she told them about the Disney trip and they didn’t understand why I didn’t take them.
“I tried to comfort them but I feel very stuck and upset because of this.
“I left not long after that and my sister continued to badge I take the kids now because they’re so annoying.”
More than 500 comments were left on the post with Reddit users appalled by the mother’s behaviour, calling her a ‘manipulator’.
One person wrote: “Your sister has annoyed her own children, NOT you. This is pure emotional manipulation.”
Another commented: “Your sister is trying to tell the kids as a way to manipulate you.
“Don’t fall for it and stay strong. It’s not the place to take her kids on vacation.”
And another wrote: “Be strong. Your sister is trying to manipulate you and her demands in the future will only escalate in the future if you give in now.”
Another mother has been slammed for rights after asking a stranger to stop watching movies and instead play games with her seven-year-old son during a flight.
