Parents never look after my boys but are happy to take my sister's kids

DEAR DEIDRE: MY sister drops her girls off with my parents any time she feels like it, but I have to book a date for them to have my kids and they often find an excuse to refuse.

I am a dad, 29, with boys aged four and two. My sister’s girls are nine and seven.

I can count on one hand the times my parents have taken the boys out or had them for a sleepover.

My partner and I argue over it. She says it’s because my parents don’t get on with her. I don’t want them to have the kids every weekend.

But surely once a month isn’t too much to ask?

DEIDRE SAYS: To look after two boys aged four and two is usually much more demanding than girls aged nine and seven.

Don’t see this as being about family rivalries. Treat it as a practical issue.

Ask your parents what would help them feel more confident. Maybe start off with an afternoon playdate.
