So my brother-in-law, his wife, and their 2 toddler daughters currently live with my husband, our 2 toddlers, and myself. It's been so stressful on myself...I get up every morning with all 4 children...I feed them every meal. The parents sit on their butts all day on the computer. They don't help out with housework or caring for their children (besides bathing them). It's absolutely awful for me...I am so stressed out and my anxiety has skyrocketed! We only have a 2 bedroom home to top it all off...so all 4 kids are in one bedroom. My husband works 12 hours a day...I tell him what's going on but he really doesn't do anything about it! I'm so fed up and I just want them out of my home! I hate to feel that way because I can only imagine how well the girls will be taken care of once they leave and they are on their own! Anyone have any suggestions to maybe help out this situation?

We already did that...but they aren't keeping their end of the bargain. Plus, I care for their children and they are home ALL DAY.

Yeah. Sit down with the inlaws, and work out a chore schedule, a grocery schedule, a cooking schedule, etc.

It probably should have been addressed before allowing them to move in with you, but better late than never, I guess.
