Parents/in-laws VS Helpers
Calling all employers who have helper with you and your parents/in-law staying with you under 1 roof…
Who have the same trouble with me where your parents/in-law totally cannot accept how your helper look after your child when you’re working?
Gramps are forever using those “spoil” ways to teach your child, to hoax them whenever they having meltdown but helpers will just either follow your ways or use the most efficient ways to stop their meltdown and I really feel that it’s ok… I don’t see any wrong so long they didn’t harm my kids.
Imagine after a long day of work. You came back home with all sort of complaints from your parents/in-laws about your helper.
Is it true that elderly and helpers just can’t blend in together?
Here are what netizens think:
- Yes. Changed maids 5x a year bcos of in law. Everyday cant step into the house cos at door already get complaints about helper. Only after complain fully then can walk in. Mentally exhausting. The best is to move out then maid can follow your instructions without getting scolded and confused
- Different upbringing.. remember how you were brought up by your parents. Just explain that your method may be more viable and productive in the long run…
- Maybe you just need to more parenting since you are the parent.
