I can understand this is stressful for you.
Your manager is not being very flexible, but it is her right to do that. She gets to decide when you take your holidays.
I don't think you should resign. I think you should approach you manager again. Or perhaps talk to her superior.

It is her right to refuse days but AL can be taken for anything you need it for. That is none of her business.

Looking for some advice!
I am a healthcare worker working in a nursing for from 11 May 2020 , I have partner and a 3 year old son who reside in the U.K. due to my parental responsibility I may have to travel since I started this job I travel once in August 2020 for one week which I had to take my vacation to attend to my son . My partner phoned me last week concerning my son and some family matters that we need to address next month which I would need to travel for . I am due 4 weeks vacation this year which I confirmed with my manager last week when I spoke to her about the situation at first and she was a bit aggressive that I was asking for one week leave to attend to my parental responsibility then stated I would need to take all my vacation at one so I can quarantine upon return after the week and that I respect . So I did as she said and put all my days through , today she called me into her office and said that she is not approving my vacation , her reason was that am not travelling for a death or a funeral which I find disrespectful and it came across to me as the only way I will fulfil my parental duties is if my son or a family member of mine is dead . And at the moment the only option I can think of is giving in my resignation.
