and needed someone to stay with your children who would you prefer to have stay with them your sister or your mother-in-law(with whom you haven't had the best of relationship with)?  They both have stayed with my boys and my boys like them both; they are both good with children and with my boys

  • I would have to choose the most responsible one. The one the children would respect and listen too. Also someone who would not say negatives to my child about the relationship I had with them.

  • I don't know your sister or MIL I know that neither my sister nor MIL would watch my kids so I could have surgery. I'd have to see if a friend could help out or I'd have to hire someone.

  • No one can make that decision for you.

  • I'd prefer my MIL- my sis can be not-so-responsible sometimes, even though she loves my kids dearly and she is their idol. lol My MIL keeps my kids on a regular basis, too, has clothes there for them and everything.
