I don't think my in laws should visit because of COVID: Advice?

I am sorry you feel this way. What if it’s the last time you have a chance to see them?
You have a higher chance of dying in a car accident. But to each their own I guess. I find it heartbreaking.

Not sure your opinion on them coming matters if they’re no longer staying with you.

This sounds like more of a jealousy thing that you won’t be seeing your family as they’ve said its best. Maybe just throw the rules out and try and mske it as normal as possible for the kids (seeing family) and you’ll have to catch up with your family when they feel ready to do that. Although if they also work in health care then they should be having regular swabs too. Im a RN, heavily pregnant and still working in the hospitals, I for one will be having a normal festive season

It’s inconsiderate of your in laws not to respect your feelings. On a side note. I couldn’t agree more with you. Play it safe. I haven’t seen my son snd his family since last Christmas , we won’t be seeing each other this Christmas either. His wife , my DIL is a nurse.

After reading the comments I can see why the virus is spreading at rapid rates and deaths are happening more often. People think they know how this virus works after only 8 months of it being around. There are medical professionals who say there isn’t enough research yet to know the long lasting effects of covid on the body. Do people really think because they read a few articles they know everything about covid?! Omg what is the world coming to…

I know the virus is bad but don’t forget to I can still get it with out them visiting. U can do of something no matter what in a car crash or outside kids that they hang with or grocery store any where u go regardless ots a challenge of u get it or not. Still be safe n do what u feel is best with both sides of the family for the children
Do want u want which makes u happy but life is never guaranteed from one day till the next. Here today gone tomorrow believe me.

Put your foot down and keep your kids safe thats your job as a mother if she doesn’t understand that well…what kind of mother was she!?

They can knock on your door, just don’t answer it. You have to do what you feel is best for your family. Suggest a video chat instead.

Hire a patio heater and sit outside for a bit if they will stay with your parents. They are dying to see family after so long apart if you keep distance and the wear masks anti back etc you cant do much more. If you’re happy to go to the supermarket when you have no idea if someone has sanitised and half the folk dont wear a mask you cant really argue about family that are trying to be careful

Is it because u arent seeing ur family who possibly arent tested as often as ur inlaws have been and u dont think its right they see u if ur family aren’t… Thats wot it sounds like

Your husband could step up and tell them no they are his parents , they need to be told that their grand childrens lives are at stake .

Just spray them down with Lysol! And make them wear their mask and use hand sanitizer before seeing or touching kids. Something will work out! It could be your last time together?! Think about that!

You’re being dramatic and making a fear based decision. I mean if you want to live ur life in fear go ahead. But there’s nothing wrong with visiting family as long as no one is sick and no one is severely immune compromised.
I can see why they would be frustrated with you but you have no right to be upset with them not letting a cold rule their lives. Sound like a great solution thst they stay with someone else and you could just see them the same way you’ve been seeing your family.

This Momma is overreacting. Just make arrangements to meet the in-laws at Costco, Target, or any grocery stores since COVID19 doesn’t seem to affect those places :sweat_smile::joy::roll_eyes:.
