Your not being selfish, as someone who helped raise my two younger brothers and my sister since I was almost 10 I understand the sacrifices that you’ve made in your life to help your parents out. 

Not to be harsh but I think that it’s incredibly unfair for your dad to stop helping you out by watching your son. (to be honest I feel that my parents will probably do the same to me) Maybe if you explained how you felt about the situation, you all could get a better understanding of what everyone is feeling and thinking. It could also help open your dad’s eyes and help him see that this is all temporary and that he would be doing you a much needed favor. 

Good luck to you! *Hugs!*

Its a really sad feeling when we do things for people to help them and because we love them.  Then we think well if they loved me, they would do this for me.  So i know how u must be feeling.  I don’t think you being selfish and i am sure some ppl will bash you.  Its not his responsibility but you wished he care enough to look at the big picture.  * Hugs*

Ultimately it’s not your parents responsibility to care for your child and bring you back and forth to work. It was nice while it lasted but expecting an arrangement like that to continue forever seems a bit extreme. I can understand that you’re upset since you seem to have made quite a few sacrifices for them (I can’t imagine a parent asking their child to test out of high school so that they can do THEIR job by tending to THEIR children) but unfortunately, arrangements aren’t always as equal as they should be. 

At 4 years old, couldn’t your son start attending some kind of school? My friend has a 4 year old and he’s in school for most of the day.
