Hi Ladies, Why Most of society members/ psychologists are suggesting joint family system than nuclear family system in recent days...Because it will help to kids growth and their mental ability to learn, bonding, love and sharing...etc...etc...A bunch in that list So Like in same way, for those facilities purpose, now a days , Specially recent generation DILS are adjusting forcefully with in-laws under same roof because of kids(may be some of them out of most). In that process most DILS are loosing their freedom and carrying heavy burden on their shoulders. I also had 3 reasons to stay with my In-laws before Covid. 1. We should care aged parents.( nothing i will get here) 2. We shouldn't drag their son. ( nothing i will get here) 3. Most important, they will tell stories, ethical values and will play games with toddlers.(only thing i wanted) I care about 3rd point specially because my In-laws failed totally. 1. My FIL always spending in Mobile with whatsapp, sharings, youtube, then magzines, walkings, friends. No more playing with kids, no more chatting/battering, NO more story tellings. 2. My MIL very less caring & she is illiterate. she spends time on sleeping most of time, her own chores, rangoli drawing, serials, gardening through out day. I just wanted to know , how remaining in-laws are behaving towards your kids? Are they satisfying your dreams in case of kids? I tried to encourage my kids to spend with them daily like 1-2 hr. but they are returning with Jet speed and saying that "they are not playing with us properly. its too bored and serious. so you come and play" . Even story telling is like news reading in DD channel. So kids are not showing intrest to spend with them. as usual i am getting my kids entertainment part on my shoulders along with heavy cooking, cum house maintenance works for them. Any other ideas to utilizing them for my kids because they are utilizing me from last 10 yr and for next 10-15 years with name of combined family system?
