“I told her not to do it as she would most likely be ruining Lily’s life and taking away any chance of her developing normally,” she explained.
“I also told her that I believed Lily would grow to resent Addie as it wouldn’t be healthy for Lily to spend the majority of her time with her mother.”
She doesn’t want Addie to be so quick to homeschool Lily because of how difficult it was for her to adjust to the real world. She doesn’t want her niece to experience the same thing.
Unfortunately, Addie took her comments very personally and misunderstood what she meant. Addie thought she was against Lily being homeschooled because she never made it past the 10th grade.
She tried pleading her case further, saying that only having Lily interact with kids in sports or clubs that meet once a week wouldn’t be anywhere equal to the social experiences she’d get in a public school. However, Addie was still upset and began to ignore her.
Although Addie hasn’t spoken to her since their argument, she’s been going around complaining to their friends and family about how she was trying to influence her parenting decisions. Therefore, she’s been getting some passive-aggressive messages online.
Did she go too far with her sister, or was it important that she shared her input on homeschooling?
