Her Niece Destroyed Expensive Toys She Bought For Her Daughter, But When Her Brother-in-Law Refused to Pay, She Was Forced to Give An Ultimatum

Her brother-in-law’s child was very destructive, and he did nothing to stop her. Recently, the child damaged her daughter’s toys and clothes; she was so upset that she told her brother-in-law to pay for the damages. Here’s how he reacted.

Her Family Situation

She had a brother-in-law named Luke, who was married to her stepsister, Ana. Luke had two daughters, 9-year-old Rue from his previous marriage and 4-year-old Lola with Ana. While she, on the other hand, had a 6-year-old daughter named Charlotte.

Luke, Ana, their kids, her parents, and her brother were staying at her house for a holiday gathering. So it was a full house, and all the children were playing and getting to know each other.

But some days ago, something happened. Rue snuck into her daughter Charlotte’s playroom and broke several of her toys and things. They caught it all on a nanny cam. This was quite sad for everyone when they found out, but it did not come as a complete surprise.

Rue had a history of being destructive, but her brother-in-law Luke hadn’t done much to address the issue or compensate for the damages. “Luke has always been less than forthcoming with paying up for the things she’s broken, though, to be fair, we have never asked him to,” she explained.

She Was Angry

Now, seeing the malicious behavior of Rue on camera made her extremely angry. She felt worse because her brother-in-law did nothing to curb his child’s behavior over the years. She told Luke that he needed to pay for the ruined items and gave him a detailed invoice. Some of the destroyed items included her daughter’s custom-made dresses.

Her brother-in-law was apologetic on his daughter’s behalf, but she wasn’t having any of it. She demanded that the only way he could make things right was to pay for the damaged properties. But he said he didn’t have the money readily available.

She said that there should be consequences for Rue’s actions and insisted that he pay or find somewhere else to stay during the holiday. He got angry and accused her of sinking him further into his financial difficulty.

Her parents thought she was being too harsh for threatening to kick him out. They also said she should have asked for an amount that Luke could comfortably afford. They suggested that she shouldn’t invite them back to their home.

Her Sister’s Dilemma

Her sister Ana was stuck in the middle of the situation. She agreed that Luke needed to do more to address Rue’s behavior, but she was worried about how this will affect everyone’s relationships and their plans for another trip in the summer. Rue, on the other hand, was upset and cried throughout the incident.

People Responded

One person said, “If he’s not going to properly parent, then he has to face the consequences. Maybe now he will actually do something about her.”

Another person wrote, “A 9-year-old knows that what she’s doing is wrong. The brother-in-law needs to enforce consequences with her.”
