    Heck no, you are most certainlynot over reacting. Your primary responsibility is to keep your children safe. Anything or anyone that says you're overeating is not sane .

    Not over-reacting, just being proactive. What you do is your business and what the rest of the family does is their business.

    Innocent until proven guilty and beyond a reasonable doubt are standards the legal system uses in these cases, for good reasons. However, when it comes to your kids' safety, I would use a much different standard... along the lines of "in order to be allowed around my kids, you have to prove to my satisfaction that you are not a threat to them."

    "hypothetically" speaking, this is a very sound reaction.

    I would wait to see if the "alleged" allegations are dropped

    If the "hypothetical" in-law is convicted, I would wait till he's served his debt to society, and gotten some sort of treatment for it, before I would let him anywhere near my children. If he was convicted, I think it would become a non-issue, because he'll probably be put away for a loooong time...
