Responsibility of looking after one's own children

Q: My mother asked me to send my son to live with her. He is 1.5 years old. My wife says that she can't live without him. When I told my mother that my wife will look after him, my mother said that I dont trust her... What should I?

A: Taking care of the children is the parents responsibility, not the grandparents responsibility.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
