DEAR ABBY: I’m a mom of 4 (quickly to be 5) younger kids. It’s exhausting. My husband helps as a lot as he can, however typically we each want a break. My mother and father provide to look at the youngsters. The issue is, my mother and father and I’ve reverse political and world views. Typically they’re going to say issues to my kids like, “You are such a ditzy woman, you higher discover a good husband!” Or name a former president “the satan.” My husband and I’ve VERY completely different opinions than they do, and we fear about their affect on our youngsters. However, actually, typically we’d like their assist. I do not assume they will hold their opinions to themselves, however I do not need them wherever close to my youngsters, both. Is it hypocritical to just accept their assist? — DIFFERENT VIEWS IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR DIFFERENT: Since you want their assist and they’re prepared to babysit “the grands,” I do not think about accepting it in the slightest degree hypocritical. Your kids are too younger to know who Barack Obama is, and will not be prone to place any significance on what your mother and father say about him.
