1. Do Working Dads share these concerns?
2. Why is this expectation of care-giving from grandparents – (more from paternal grand parents I think), so common? Is it because the paternal grand parents are seen as having more rights on the grand children? Can this be also compared to the higher expectations from sons (from the Shravan Kumars via their wives) than from the Paraya Dhan (daughters)?
I am in a dilemma. Pls read my story. I am a working mother of two kids. We live in a joint family (My In laws, husband, myself and two kids). My inlaws take good care of my kids while I go to work.
My kids are very fond of their grand parents.
I have 2 SILs who are married and well settled.
We are generally a happy family and contented with what we have.
Now here comes the life changing decision everyone has made.
My MIL is having a very bad time according to her horoscope and she has to live separately from her son as told by the astrologer.
So it is decided by everyone that we move out of house and settle in a different part of the city !!! I am greatly confused and shocked hearing this. My kids are sooo affectionate toeards their GPs….I donno how they will cope without them….
I am also worried how I am going to manage two toddlers, work, home, chores etc etc without any physical / moral support….
Ladies out there…Kindly advice….
