Hi, our daughter expects too much from us we think (her dad and me). She is currently expecting her 5th child with a partner who gives her extremely little help himself.
She has started several arguments because she says we should drop everything whenever she needs it or goes into labour.
Today it was because she wanted us to be on call for the other 4 children, even though we both work and it would take us a couple of hours to get to her home. We talked about it before and it was decided her mil would be better placed being 5 mins away and she could come and stay with us after to rest with the baby.
She says we are selfish and she is embarrassed in front of her friends whose parents apparently drop everything whenever they need it including flying in from Paris.
Are we being unreasonable, btw we cannot afford to miss work my husband is self employed and I cannot have time off in term time.
