Ask Aunty S


Dear Aunty S

My daughter is addicted to Facebook and it is ruining her life and refuses to holiday with us this year as she will have no coverage for her smart phone. She wants her grandparents to babysit her in our home so she has access to both her phone and computer.
She is only thirteen so we can’t leave her home alone so I think the grandparents is a good compromise.

What do you think?


Aunty S responds

She is thirteen and dictating to you!!!

Oh give me a break.

Stop and listen to how this sounds.

Is she mentally unwell or is she just a self-indulged little madam.

If she is mentally unwell, talk to her Doctor about her behaviour and engage a psychologist quickly.

If she is the latter, tell her she is either coming with you or staying with her grandparents in their own home minus her smart phone.

Time to stop indulging this child.

Over and out.
