Mother-in-law as nanny: Can it really work?

 

Motherhood is charged with primal feelings. It is possible, when bringing in extended family to help care for your child, that you will feel by their actions that they are criticizing the job you do with your child. You may also be vulnerable to hurt feelings if your extended family member does not support and show respect for your point of view. Just stay aware of this possibility and remember to keep the lines of communication open!
