Greetings Pastor! Thank you for the opportunity to ask a question. I love you so much! My question is this; is it good to leave your kids with your mum if you know she is carnal and negative even though she is a Christian too?
You have answered the question. Remember, whether it’s your mum or mother in law or your outlaw, it’s the same thing. If the person is carnal and negative, then the kids pick up carnality and negativity. But you know sometimes you’re going to leave your kids with someone because you need some help and that’s where the problem is. Sometimes we do some things not because they are right, but because we feel that there is no other opportunity; there is no way out. You say who am I going to leave the kids with? I’ve got to do this. So, maybe for short times because this is your mum and that makes her the grand mum of the kids and so there is a relationship here and an important one too. So, you can’t be hiding the kids from their grandmother just because she is carnal or negative. Even if she wasn’t a Christian, you would not withdraw the kids from her, they are her grandkids! And one of her biggest joys would be to see her grandkids and relate with them. So, don’t deny her of that. What you would have to think of is how best to let the kids know when things go negative. It’s like taking a bath; when they come back, you wash them. Wash all the negativity from them with the scriptures, with the word and that can help so that the grandmother can enjoy her years with the grandkids. They are only kids for a short time and after that they become adults. So, think about that because one day you might become a grandmother.
