Daily Dilemma: My Husband’s Father Is A Bad Influence On Our Kids

By July 26, 2021 No Comments

Dear Rebecca & Burns,

We recently lived with my Father-in-law for 8 months to save money.  And it was horrible.  He was a terrible role model for our kids.  He rarely showered and was super negative about everything.  Now that we’ve moved out, I don’t want to see the man, but my husband feels obligated to let him see the kids because he is family – AND it’s the Christian thing to do. But,  I don’t want our toddler mimicking all of the negativity.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
