I've spent a lot of time looking after my little cousins whilst their parents went out to get drunk or went work. I'd make them breakfast, lunch, dinner, wash and dress them and tucked them into bed like they were my own, whenever they needed a hug in the middle of the night after a scary nightmare I'd be there for them but I also wasn't afraid to tell them to go back bed and discipline them when they misbehaved.I'm pretty humble about it but seeing how they've grown up makes me proud knowing I had a big part in that and I know they see as a big sister more than a baby sitter. I'm not one to judge but most the children I looked after were from broken homes and I think having me be their for them especially my female little cousin growing up really helped her, she knows she can come to me for anything and I'm always trying to help out were I can.
When I was a teenager, my mom was sick with cancer. For 3 years from 16-18 o took care of my younger brothers and sister , along with taking care of my mom , house chores, grocery shopping and my siblings school functions. My dad was a truck driver. So I paid all the bills and dealt with all that stuff too. I am now a mother of 4 of my own and 2 step sons. I love them all the same.
I've always been the main support for my immature mom, including home hospice up to the day of her death. Really fucked me up. Made me feel like I had to be everyone's mom, so I took care of my cousin and his kids for 4-5 years? I've been an on and off babysitter for my friend for about 10 years and her kids love me but more like an aunt.
Not really, but I've acted like an older brother to my little cousins and my sister. I'm the eldest grandchild, which means I acted as a babysitter to my family as they were all growing up. Now that task falls back to the parents as I am off at college.
I don't think I have ever been that type of figure in someone's life. Usually it's the role of big brother or something. It's almost always looking out and protecting somebody younger than me.
Yes. I kept two boys to keep them from going into foster care. I was friend of their mother. Kept them for a year it was a struggle, but I made a big difference in their lives. Makes me feel good
Never. Last girlfriend was a single mom but none of us saw me as her father figure.
I had to take care of my nephew for a week so about 3 years ago.
