    You know, being brave isn't not being scared. Its being scared and doing it anyway.

    Yeah, what I was meaning by my post was, really, hand it back to him. State your position, but then after that, hand it over to him to establish the boundaries with her.

    You know, the more I get a handle on this, the more I say its not your place to have to say no to the daughter at all! Its the SO who has to say no. Here'a a sample:

    I'd do this in a heartbeat. The problems the OP is worrying about I would be entirely unconcerned about. I've always ridden alone, and had a horse at home alone. Boarding out, it was a large stable,...

    This is probably a good idea, because its part of standing up for yourself, but I wouldn't tell her the child told me anything. I wouldn't tell her who told me, at all! I would just say "You know,...

    Also, if you MAKE plans for yourself, such as a yoga class, or meeting a friend for lunch, then it really will be a stinking rude imposition of her to ask you babysit. It will make it easier to say...

    You'll start to say "no" when it really is more important to you to set boundaries than it is to compromise on your personal needs.

    You're choosing between your happiness and making someone else...

    You know what REALLY offends me? Men in ties. Those ties point directly to you know where. Every time a man is in a tie, he's tempting women and making us look at his private parts. I think that...
