Kindly help advise on this confusing issue I am faced with. Should I allow my MIL raise my kids?
I am a Ghanaian who lives in Ghana with my husband and two girls, 3 and 5 years-old respectively. My mother-in-law lives comfortably in Nigeria with her husband who is a diplomat. She’s been more than a mum to me.
She loves me and I also love her very much. I have been married to her first son for 6 years now. I must confess she is the mother I never had. My kids are really close to her and are always with her when she visits or we visit them in Abuja for holiday.
The issue is that she wants to take my girls to the Regent school in Abuja where her three kids finished schooling before furthering to France and the UK. She says it’s a very good school the kids will be happy with.
Should I let the girls go, considering the fact that she is their Grandmum and might pamper them too much? Is the Regent School in Abuja really good? I am 7 months pregnant and wish the girls would be here when their little sister arrives.
Isn’t it a mother’s responsibility to train her kids, albeit busy? Please advise me. Should I let them go for a the better education and be raised with a Grandmum who will be there for them or I should let them stay with me? My husband thinks it’s a good opportunity for our kids but I am confused.
