She Said Her Stepdaughter Is Too Close to Her Nanny. Did She Go Too Far?

Wow…this sounds like a tricky situation, don’t you think?

Accusing a child of being too close to their nanny?


But did this woman go too far?

Check out her story below and see what you think.

AITA for saying my stepdaughter is too close to her nanny and suggesting that the nanny moves out?

“My boyfriend (30M) has a daughter, Hailey (11f). Haileys mother left when she was around 1 and my boyfriend is pretty uninvolved as a father.

When Hailey was 6 months old her mom was dealing with some mental health issues so my boyfriend hired a nanny, Laura, to do everything baby related. He had Laura move in within a couple months of Halley’s mom leaving and Laura is still working for my boyfriend today.

Laura is very close with my boyfriend’s family. She’s with the family every holiday and honestly I think they like her better than me. My boyfriend says she’s become a good friend over the years and he and Laura go out at least once a month. And Laura is extremely involved in Hailey’s life.

She’s room mom at her school (I didn’t know you could be room mom without being a mom), she’s at every play, concert, soccer game, etc., she even goes to Hailey’s therapy appointments. Hailey doesn’t do anything for herself because of Laura.

Laura wakes her up, packs her backpack and lunch and does her hair every morning and does homework with her every afternoon. She tucks Hailey in every night and sits with her until she falls asleep.

Hailey is very attached to Laura and Laura is to Hailey. Laura even takes Hailey out with her on her days off. Hailey has been disinterested in getting closer with me and her dad and I honestly think it’s because of Laura.

I was talking to my boyfriend and said that Hailey’s too attached to Laura and suggested that he be more involved in Hailey’s life since he’s now in a better position to be a father and we can have Laura move out.

Hailey heard us and is heartbroken and terrified. She’s refusing to speak to me or leave Laura’s side. She’s faked being sick at school so many times this week that they don’t want her to come back today. Laura says Hailey hasn’t been sleeping and is worried about her.

My boyfriend is blaming me for all of this but there’s no way I could’ve known that Hailey would be eavesdropping or that she’d get this scared. Am I the a**hole here?”

Here’s how Reddit users reacted to what happened.
