Since my fiance and I are still young, and he's the oldest of 3. His younger sisters recently turned 13 and 15. They, being teens, have started to rebel. MIL,FIL, and DF think it would be good for all of us if they come live with us for a little while. Good practice for parenting teens for us, and maybe it will get them straightened out. I could have them attend a school near my house. We have enough room for it, but idk. I guess I just need another mom's opinion. What do you guys think? Alot is going on right now, and it's getting overwelming.

I would definitely think long and hard about it before committing to it.

Here's what I've come up with: (+ is a pro, - is a con)

+Teen Parenting practice

+Quality time with the girls

+Help during pregnancy and maybe after birth

+Help out the in-laws (Otherwise known as sucking up :D)

+Teach them about kids

+Get to know them better

"Laws are paying for anything that the girls need

+We have the room

_____________________________________________________________________

-Full house

-More stress

-Go from just having a 2 year old, to immediatley caring for 3 children, all at different stages at life

-May have to put work on hold for a bit.

-If I can't get them straightened out by next year, then This is useless

-Not sure how much they know about the birds and the bees (Especially the younger one. How ackward would it be if I had to teach my SILs about that?)

I agree, and personally, I couldn't do it long term.
