SD confided in me and now I dont know what to do
My SD is 9 and she lives with us full time. She has in the last 2 weeks asked to stop going to church with my MIL and asked not to go over to MILs house on the weekend at all. Iwas very confused as to why because that's not normal behavior for her.
Anyways today we were alone in the car and she said mom can I tell you something? I said of course and she proceeded to tell me that the reason she doesn't want to stay with MIL anymore is because she is constantly nagging the kids about what is going on here, how we buy things like groceries, (she is trying to find out if I have assistance which I don't) and how much money do we really make because she just doesn't see how we pay all our bills and live like we do. SD goes on to tell me she doesnt think that is any of her grandmothers business and doesnt want to talk to her about it anymore.
I told SD she was right and it wasnt MILs business because she doesnt pay our bills and that she can tell grandma its not her business if she wants. FDH and I both work full time and make good money but that is not her concern. We don't owe her any money or any explanation of how we spend our money. I really have no idea why she would talk to an 8 year old and 9 year old about our finances since they have no information on the subject anyways. Did I handle this correctly? Should I say something to FDH or MIL about it since SD was telling me "a secret"?
