A MUM has been branded as ‘manipulative’ for demanding her kids were invited on holiday with her sister – who was planning a surprise proposal.
When she told her sister about her plans, her sister insisted her kids be invited on the holiday, even though she said no.
The woman, who posted under the username u/throwingstars03r5, wrote: “As my girlfriend is obsessed with Disney it’s where I’m planning to propose to her to make it more special.
“My sister knows I’m proposing as she helped me pick out the ring and she was very supportive until she found out when I was planning to propose.
“She doesn’t approve of it as we’re not kids and has stated that as we’re not children it’s ‘weird’ and how if I wanted to go there I should take her kids who are 10 and six.
“I love my niece and nephew but this is a special trip for me and my girlfriend.”
The Reddit user went on to explain that her sister told the kids that they were invited on the holiday, only to tell them soon after that their aunt had uninvited them.
The post said: “The next time I was over seeing her kids, they were upset as she had told them about the Disney trip and they couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t take them.
“I tried to console them but I felt very put on the spot and upset by this.
“I ended up leaving not long after and my sister keeps badgering me to take the kids now as they’re so upset.”
More than 500 comments have been left on the post with Reddit users appalled at the mum’s behaviour, branding her ‘manipulative’.
One person wrote: “Your sister upset her own children, NOT you. This is pure emotional manipulation.”
Someone else commented: “Your sister is telling the kids on purpose as a way to manipulate you.
“Don’t fall for that and stay strong. It’s not your place to take her kids on vacation.”
And another wrote: “Stay strong. Your sister is trying to manipulate you and her future demands will only escalate in the future if you give in now.”
Another mum was slammed for being entitled after demanding a stranger stopped watching a film and played games with her seven-year-old son during the flight instead.
