Sister ill with sickness diarrhea . Cant lift her head off pillow. She has 3 kids. One of school age, one 3 yrs and one 5 mnths.

I have a child 2.5 years

Got a phone call this morning asking me to go round and help with kids. With child in tow.

She has refused help from her mil who offerd to come round and help.

She also is very close to her cousin who is god mother to her kids, lives around the corner, has no children and is off work.

Aibu to tell her she will have to accept the help offerd by her mil or ask her cousin.

On the grounds that if i can help it i dont want my son catching bug.

YANBU- shes been offered help, she should accept that. It's unfair to put other peoples children at risk so close to xmas.

Just because the cousin has no children and is off work doesn’t mean you can designate her to catch an illness you don’t want
I fully agree with this! YABU to volunteer someone else without their knowledge, especially on the basis of not having children.
But if MIL has offered to helping she should taker her up on that (assuming there's no massive back story about MIL being a risk to the children or something), so YANBU to refuse.

Overall YANBU.

Why did she refuse the MIL's help?
