do you think a mother-in-law should live with her daugther and son-in-law and grandbaby.

It depends on the situations. As for me, my mother has come over to live with us and help take care of my 4 month baby. There are other circumstances where the mother goes over to live with her daughter when she has nowhere else to go. I dont think there's anything wrong in this. She is your mother, the one who brought you to this world. For me, my mother is the utmost priority in my life. Its a pity that children tend to ignore or take their parents for granted, once they get settled in their life. Its so sad to see the number of oldage homes and refuge homes rising all over the world, thanks to selfish children.

First of all, Thanks for grading this as the best answer. As for people thinking that inlaws presence deprives them of their privacy, I think they should recollect their childhood days, when their parents were by their side. What would have happened to them if their parents had thought that the children are a hindrance to their privacy. This world would be a paradise if people stop being selfish. How easily we forget the help we get from others. On the other hand, how difficult it is for us to forgive or forget someone who cheated us.:-((((

I think it depend on situation. I lived with my mother in law for little while. That because me and my hubby were tring to save up money for the baby. It wasnt happy time but she helped us a lot. Once baby was born, it was just me, my hubby and baby. I hope I dont have to live with her in the future. I like her but we dont get along living together. If she get sick, I might help out with taking care of her but I dont want to live with her to help her out.
