My daughter-in-law wants to send my 5 year old (5 at the end of March) granddaughter to Russia for 2 months in the summer to visit her parents. The daughter-in-law's parents do not speak any English and my granddaughter only speaks a few words of Russian. I'm concerned that it will be hard for her not to be able to communicate and be away from everything familiar for such a long period of time. They do see each other on Skype regularly.
Her mother will travel with my granddaughter and then leave her there. Mother will stay for 1 week.
I am also concerned about the time away from family. I am a main caregiver 3-4 days/nights a week.
The Skype is between mother/daughter with her grandparents in Russia.
The grandparents do not speak ANY English.
