    Question for you: If you are a working mum and agreed to leave your son with your sister while you worked in the mornings before school, and holidays and one day you dropped him off and she said something along the lines of "I will mother him" would that offend you?

    Yes that would. I'm lucky my sister would never think to say that.

    Depends on the tone in which she said it but I don't think it would bother me. I'd be more happy that she is willing to look after my child so that I can actually work.

    No I would just think she means she will treat him as if he was her own.

    No. To 'mother' does not mean they will 'be' the mother. There's a difference.

    I dont get it, but I apparently said this to my sister when she dropped him off. she still has an issue with it, but first I heard of it..

    I cant remember it.. this was about 12 months or more ago.. and I really dont get why it would upset her.

    IF i did say it - it would certainly have been in the context of I will treat him as one of my own...

    I explained that to her.. doesnt seem to make a difference

    I find it very weird.
