Hi All
A bit of an unusual request which I can really do your advise on.

We have been married 6 years and we have a baby boy of 2 years. The Mrs family lives locally say 10 miles away. Over the years of marriage it has come to light that her family is into a lot of mombo jambo i.e. they practise some unusual things. I have hardly every visited their house as her mother was not really supportive of us getting married.
Over the time, My FIL has informed that he summons spirits in the evening etc. Her brother has also mentioned experiencing some strange happenings.

Now I have told my mrs that she can take the baby to her parents house but she needs to be back by the evening. I have also told her the reasons behind this and that I am not supportive of my child going there.

Now she listens, and then forgets. And we end up having arguments and guess what she heads off to her parent to stay overnight.

I am very close to the edge of calling child services, however my wife's sister who also has kids live in the same parents household. Her kids are young as well.

I am trying to make peace at home, but as you can realise that anything against her parents is a NO NO and she wont listen. I am of the opinion to contact child services, and ask my child not to be taken there at all. I can see this causing more friction in our relationship however I have told her that her parents can come and see the child when ever they want.

How do I solve this? Willt he child services even entertain this or consider me a loony?

Appreciate your advise

There needs to be a clear distinction between what you class as "mombo jombo" which could be legitimate spiritual practices, and dangerous black magick practices such as demon exorcising. Is your child being made to be directly involved in any of the "unusual things"?
