What is the Solution?

by Varx1

My sister (who married a wealthy man) and does not work as she decided to be a stay-home wife; took my parents to live with her a few months ago, I didn't agree but parents were thrilled as her house is giant and more comfortable than the rental place (I paid for) as they were always very poor.


I live away in Canada and I'm still single, I pay for my parents' maid back home and send money for their support and health care every month BUT my life is hell since they moved in with her... there is not one day my sister doesn't comment how she is making sacrifices and not having a life because I do not take care of my parents and quite frankly I don't know what to do, feel guilty and very sad and can't bring my parents from South America to Canada as they do not speak the language, it's cold for them, and I live in a one bedroom apartment... I need advice

Give your sister time off
by: Anonymous

It is great that you are asking and caring.

I wish my siblings asked me what kind of help I need.

What I need after caring for my mother for 4 years, is time off!!

Can you go stay with your parents while your sister gets away and gets a complete break from them?

Good luck to your family.
