to allow your children to stay with family? What does it depend on to you? Does it really take a village to raise a child? I see alot of post about moms who don't want to let their children visit with family without them and things along those lines, i see alot of these post, so i was just wondering. I am blessed in that i trust my family. My mom had the neighbors children crying when it was time to leave our home and go home, so i don;t worry when my children are with her and I still call her for advice. I do think it takes a village to raise a child. I love being able to call my son's grandparents on both sides, or a family member he looks up to and say, he is this close ya'll better talk to him.lol..and it works. I have neighbors that know if they see my children acting in anyway that would embarass them or me they can say, hey, does your mother/father know your out here doing xyz...
Have we gotten away from that thinking? and why do you think?
