This is my first post, so I hope it is in the right place. My wife and I have a 22 month old son. My wife’s aunt and her “partner” live close by and are very nice and caring people. We have visited them at their home a few times, but never stayed the night. We have let them babysit our son at our home a few times, as well. Our intention was to “walk the line” somewhere between “full acceptance” of their lifestyle and rejection of them entirely. Neither seems right.
The difficulty we face now is when the occasional babysitting invitation/offer is made by them. Our position to this point has been unspoken, but I am sure it will become more obvious as our son gets older. We want to have really thought our position through before discussing it with them.
Do you think we are on the right track?
