  • It's their home, It will be up to them to set boundries. If your living there you are just stuck with them.

  • *if you have need to make sure they know to listen to you and you only. the inlaws might think they can get away with parenting themselves.

    *even though you prolly wont think you will use thier stuff...most likely you will somehow someway. like toilet paper, paper plates, borrowing food and whatnot, make sure you invest in helping them out as well with the small things like toilet paper.

    *make a time for each day to help out by doing dishes or whatever else you contribute to the messy housework.

    *if your paranoid and have sex toys and whatnot, make sure you have a lock on your room lol

  • It is their house. What they say goes. Even them telling your kids what to do.( As in disciplining). It is their house, their rules.  JMO

  • DON'T DO IT!!!!! We moved into my inlaws house for 19 months...that was the worst 19 months of my life! Even if you all get along now it changes living with each other. Now my husband and I are having marital problems (more then likely we will get decision) and my oldest child is suffering from emotional damage. I know it does not happen to everyone but I can honestly say that inlaws help ruin our marriage (they probably happy about it anyway since I am too tan for them).

  • I swear this Louis chick is crazy. Your opinions are so off the wall. Not a chane in hell they have the say in what happens with your children. Your the parent and you need to make sure that is established before you move in. That is the biggest problem I have
