Do they even know that family? Have they talked with the parents about it? I'm guessing a big fat NO. I laughed aloud when I read your post. Some people are so ridiculous all you can do is laugh. Could you imagine the poop show that would ensue if those parents came home and found other kids there too?!? Kids at their house that *they* are paying for the babysitting? DD would probably be dismissed immediately. I know I wouldn't have her babysit again after a stunt like that.

I foresee this scenario: ILs drop their kids off at the other house and leave. After all, what is dd going to do? At that point, she'll HAVE to watch the kids because she's a good person with a heart. If that happens, dd should call the police immediately and report that they abandoned their children at someone else's house and they need a police escort home. (But I know she's too sweet of a girl to do that. I've become callous from several years of dealing with entitled, insensitive people.)

She is a brand new driver is my concern but the roads in our country neighborhood are not priority to be cleared.


If it isn't a far walk, then I suggest they walk. Not to impugn dd's driving skills, but even good, experienced drivers can have trouble navigating poorly maintained winter roads. It might be safer for them all to walk the little stretch to the house and then warm up once inside. If there is a threat of exposure or frostbite, then I'd say drive them, but, en balance, it's probably safer to walk. Besides, if she drives them, then the ILs will bring up the issue of her driving their kids home too, and all of the silliness begins again. Best to not open that can of worms.
