I left my kid for 13 months so yeah, I would.
My ds is 10 and I can barely make it a week.
I let my MIL keep my 2.5 year old for a month. DH and I greatly benefited from the time, as we were struggling with some issues.
I wouldn't do it again. MIL completely ignored my wishes. He came back a spoiled brat who threw a 45 minute fit because he didn't have to drink water at MIL's, but I wouldn't give him chocolate milk every time he was thirsty.
its not a bad idea but a month is a long time not to see ur baby! i honestly dont think i could do it. i know every mama needs a break at sum point but i just love my baby way to much to let him go away from me for a month! just my opinon. there is no right or wrong answer. just what u think is right for u and ur child. if u think its a good idea then go for it. i just dont think i would like to be away from my son that long. ..
Well lets see, my son is going to be 7 in April. The longest I have ever left him was 2 days......I could not imagine him being gone for a month. I personally would NOT let my 2 year old go.
my children are not allowed to spend that kind of time away from home until they know how to use the phone, have memorized their home address/phone number, can memorize the address/phone number they'll be staying at and understand that they are many hours away from home and can't just be picked up on a whim.
