I'm helping my [30/f] parents [67] babysit the grandkids but I don't know if I can do any more of this...

Oh yes the I was a kid so I know what it's like to raise children argument. A classic.

I would love for you to point out where there is any indication of how these children are parented? I see none. What I see is a three and a 4-year-old who are being left with their grandparents while their parents are away for 10 days. I see a three and a 4 year old who are in an unfamiliar and to them stressful situation who are acting the way that a three and a four year old acts when they are in a stressful situation.

A three-year-old doesn't have the emotional maturity to say excuse me dear Aunt but my entire world has been thrown up in a tailspin and I'm not feeling quite myself today please forgive my rudeness. No a kid that age acts like a jerk. Does that mean they are a jerk? No it means they're a goddamn 3-year-old.

So please take your judgments and shove them up your ass.
