  • Personally, I would say no, that's just me though.

  • How old are your boys? Between 3-4? Unless this is a place that they frequent often and know the family well, I would say no. 15 hours away is a long way for you and for your boys.

  • I wouldn't let my three year old/s stay over at a relatives house for two weeks if those people weren't my parents. I just wouldn't feel comfortable letting them stay somewhere else for that long. I trust my parents with everything, so they're the only exception.

  • Personally - no. That is too far away if things are not working out.

  • I would wait until they could decide for themselves whether they wanted to, personally.

  • we asked they said they wanted to go. they are 3. and she has twin boys who are a little older. I have mixed feeling about them going. i trust her a lot. but then again its 15 hours away. its not like i can just go get them. they never been more then a hour away for more than a day. *mom lives a hour away*
