A Woman Cared for Her Brother’s 4 Children Full-Time, but when He Turned the Heating on in Every Room Except Hers She Finally Decided Enough was Enough

A woman lived with her 35-year-old brother, his wife, and their four children, serving as a live-in nanny. She resided in the house rent-free, in exchange for the childcare.

Initially, the brother and his wife promised to pay for the woman’s childcare services when they first got pregnant. However, this payment stopped after a month due to the addition of three more children.

Financial Troubles

The family encountered some serious financial difficulties, owing an enormous amount of money. To settle the mounting debts, both parents began to take on overtime at work, leaving the woman to care for the four children alone.

Winter Weather

Winter arrived, and it had become excessively cold, yet the woman was not aware of how to work the complicated heating system. The brother had been turning on the heating in all other rooms, except the woman’s, making it the coldest area in the house.

The coldness of the woman’s room quickly became a serious problem. “I can’t sleep at night even with all the thickest blankets”, she explained. “I get pain when I am cold so I’m up all night in pain.”

Requesting Her Heater

On several occasions, the woman asked her brother to turn her heater on, and he kept replying that he’d get to it soon. However, the woman had little faith that this would actually happen, as just a week ago, he told her that he’d never turn it on to cut costs.

One Last Try

Exhausted, the woman asked her brother to turn the heating on one more time. She suggested the brother could turn off the main room heater when they sleep to compensate for the cost. 

An Unreasonable Refusal

Despite her begging for heating, the brother still refused to turn on his sister’s heater. She wrote that he said, “It’s his house, and he’ll do whatever he pleases, and I don’t get a say cause I don’t help financially.”

The Final Straw

The woman felt used after being told that she didn’t help financially despite looking after four children on a daily basis. This was the final straw, and she decided to start planning her exit.  

Moving Back in with Mom

The woman contacted her mother, asking if she could move back in with her for a while. The mother accepted, so the woman told her brother that she was getting picked up and that someone would come by soon to pick up her belongings.

The woman’s brother told her that she was being dramatic and that he would give her some time to cool off. The woman wrote, “I said I didn’t need time, and he told me to think of the kids and how they’re super attached to me. I said I’d still see them with a parent present because I don’t plan on babysitting.”

Family Conflict

The family was thrown into conflict – “My brother has been blowing up my phone”, the woman recounted. “My dad texted me asking how I could abandon them knowing they were struggling. I feel bad cause I did abandon them but I couldn’t do it anymore.”

Logging On For Advice

The woman felt guilty due to her father’s accusations of abandonment, so she turned to the internet for advice. Many readers commented on the clear abuse, with one stating “They’re abusing you, at least financially”.

Someone else responded to this comment, stating “More than financially if they left her in a freezing room.”

Modern Day Slavery

Others described the situation as slavery. “100% slavery”, one user wrote. “Turning off the heat only in her room is abuse in its purest form. Locking people in cold rooms is also a form of torture. I am SO happy to hear that you got yourself out of this terrible situation”.

The Brother Will Soon Realize

Some people commented on how the brother would soon get what was coming to him. “Your brother is about to understand how much you were helping out financially when he has to actually pay for childcare”, somebody pointed out.
