  • How will you have spending money if you live with him? It would be hard i think.

  • If you need a "break". Moving where you will have to take care of their kids all day isnt the way to do it. Plus, I would hope this would be temp. which they would lose their current darecare and depend on you. I wouldnt.... but thats up to you.

  • You don't have a job, and your son needs help. Give it a shot! If you feel uncomfortable, do it for a while, then explore your options and move out. What do you have to loose?

  • I am their daycare, right now the kids come here to my home and I take her to work. They have only one car and my son takes it to work.

  • You are not happy and your son can use your help and wants to help you. Explain that you will not feel comfortable without a job and work out something where you can maybe find a part time job in the meantime or maybe some of their neighbors can use a good sitter since you are watching your grandchildren. You can make some money to work toward getting on your feet.
