Daughter Refuses To Babysit Her Father’s Child, Dad Calls Her Rude And Selfish

In this situation, a 17-year-old aspiring musician is facing a dilemma between honoring a professional commitment and family expectations. The teenager has been offered a gig at a friend’s mom’s salon, an opportunity to both showcase her talent and earn some money. However, her father, who has a strained relationship with her and had previously agreed not to involve her in babysitting duties, is now requesting her to babysit their new child on the same evening as the gig. The conflict arises because the gig and babysitting duties overlap, making it impossible for her to fulfill both obligations simultaneously.

OP’s refusal to cancel her gig is motivated by several factors. First, she has made a prior commitment, and it would be unprofessional and potentially damaging to her budding music career to cancel at such short notice. Second, the gig is not just about making money it’s an opportunity to gain valuable experience and footage for her portfolio, which is crucial for her college applications. Lastly, she feels that her father and his wife are not being considerate of her own life, commitments, and aspirations, especially given their earlier agreement not to involve her in babysitting responsibilities.
