Just say no. If she tries to guilt you by saying “well I guess I’ll have to take the eldest out of school” then tell her “too bad, so sad.”  They are her kids and her responsibility, and as soon as you stop picking up the slack, she will have no choice but to find a proper childcare arrangement.

It’s not your responsibility. It sounds like you’ve already been extremely generous with your time!

Exactly what the other posters said.  If you have concerns about her taking the eldest child out of school to watch the younger children you should call social services to show up at her house to investigate the next time she does it.  Taking care of her children is her responsibility, not yours.  If she didn’t want the responsibility she had many options to not have to raise those children (abstain from sex, birth control, abortion, adoption, etc…)  She needs to grow up and I would tell her exactly that.
