Hi Derrick & Sylvia. Awhile back you use to post e-mails from listeners looking for advice. Not sure if you are still doing that…hope so because I need some input from you, and your listeners. My mother-in-law is watching my kids now and through out the summer. We got into an argument yesterday because she is rewarding them with tons of candy. I have asked her to cut back, but she refuses saying grandparents are supposed to spoil their grandkids. She is watching the kids for free and saving me lots of money. My husband refuses to say anything to his mother because he is a mama’s boy. She says I’m uptight, overprotective and need to allow the kids to be ‘kids’. I don’t think they should be rewarded with sugar. Who’s right– me or her?
