Re: Grandparents looking after grandchildren.

Thank you. I appreciate the replies and know they make sense, but I have a hard time saying no.
I just got a call from the mother of the children saying the kids are sick and need to be seen by a doctor tomorrow and would I mind taking them after they come back so she can go back to work. How can I say no, it's so hard because the kids are sick.

I am not charging anything for looking after the kids I just wish they wouldn't take my help forgranted and expect it from me.
