Grandma wants to take the kids overnight, BUT you don't care for her new partner.  What do you do?

There is a big question here. Are you concerned for the childs safety or do you just not like the guy.  If it is the former, then don't leave the child and tell grandma your concern.  If it is the latter let the kids go but be honest with grandma that you expect her to care for the kids, not her partner.

yeah, I agree.  It really depends on why you don't like him.  Personal or Proven?

Instead of an overnight, do a shorter few hour visit as a test run, depending on age of kids too; I told my parents and in laws the kids would have to be school age before they had overnights so not as a handful for all of them.
