Should My Parents Want To Watch My Kids More? – Daily Dilemma

Here is Today’s Daily Dilemma:

Whenever my wife and I ask either of our parents to watch the kids so we can go out on a date, they kind of make us feel like we’re a huge inconvenience. My parents do it, and so do the in-laws – although they do it in different ways. Like my parents are always saying they’re busy and have other plans and my in-laws just kind of sigh like we’ve just asked the most difficult favor in the world instead of asking if they could watch their grand kids for a few hours so we can go out to dinner. Sometimes my in-laws will invent illnesses in ADVANCE – one time my mother in law said she couldn’t tell us if she could babysit next Friday or not because she might have a headache! I thought grandparents were supposed to want to have the grand kids over! I don’t know how to approach either my parents or the in-laws without making it all awkward and uncomfortable, but my wife and I feel like we should be able to ask them to babysit once in a while without being made to feel like it’s a huge ordeal. Does anyone else have this problem?

The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
