I bring this up because I feel so bad for my mom because I
Think she is being so taken advantage of

If you are dropping your kid off to the grandparents 3-4 days a week, 12-14 hours a day, are they still expected
To do this job pro bono? I can understand if it's a random day and you can't find anyone to watch the baby while you have to run an important errand, or just have a date night and need some relief. It's bonding time. But my mom Is pretty much the baby sitter for my sisters very difficult child and they don't even gesture to pay my mother for her services.

I see how stressed out and tired she is from watching him all day. She passes out the second he leaves. Whenever anyone comes home, we have to relieve her so
She can get a rest. I have to take time away from my DD to watch her son. Especially since this was always time she intended to relax And travel but now she's stuck in a house with a baby that cries for 10 hours a day. It's not even that she needs the money but I find it so rude that my sister hasn't offered.

Do you think grandparents should have to suck it up and do this job for free ?
