A pregnant woman is putting her foot down with family members who don’t like her, saying they simply won't be allowed to see her kids.
Tayler Arrington posted a video on TikTok to ask for other people’s opinion on the matter, saying: “I think it’s quite obvious and apparent how everyone is gonna feel about this topic.”
While Tayler – who is in her third trimester – used family members as an example, she said that the debate applied to anybody.
“This goes for complete strangers walking down the street, this goes for co-workers, this goes for customers at my work, this goes for my mom, dad, sister, brother, auntie, uncle, in-laws, boyfriend, girlfriend – it could be anybody,” she said, adding: “I’m not talking about anybody specific.
The US-based TikToker went on: “Let’s say any of those people do not like me… and they make it very known that they don’t like me, to many different people, in many different ways, on the internet.
“[…] You do not like me, and you call me names and you put me down. You don’t support me. You want nothing to do with me.
“[…] You just don’t like me, and you let me know you don’t like me. You let other people know.
“And at the end of the day, you still feel as though, regardless of how you treat me – which is sh***ty – regardless of the relationship, or no relationship, that we have, you still think you should go around that nasty relationship you’ve developed with me, and still be able to have access to my children.
“It quite literally does not make sense to me.”
And her post clearly struck a chord with other, with one commenting: “Your title to my child doesn’t make you entitled to my child. Preach it sis.”
Another agreed: “Newwp. Never. I will never allow my children around anyone who openly speaks poorly about me or my bf.”
A third added: “My in-laws to a T.”
WARNING: CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
Another mum even posted her own TikTok video in response, detailing her own difficult relationships with certain family members – saying she wasn’t liked by her husband’s relatives.
“If you think that someone [who] doesn’t like you, that they’re going to treat your children the same as somebody they do like, you couldn’t be farther from the truth,” she said, saying her children weren’t directly affected by the issue but had statred to notice they were being treated slightly differently to other family members.
“We started setting up boundaries that protect our family and the emotional health of our children,” she explained.
The mum added: “It means we have completely stepped away. We stopped playing the game and we just quit going.
“And I will say that the best thing we ever did for our family was to stop, to put up those boundaries, and just stop.
“If you don’t want us, you don’t like us, it is so much better to just stop.”
