Around 2, maybe 3 hours.
For some parents it is better to visit them. I've lived in my house for 13 years, I think my father in law has been in it twice. The place before was for 7 years, he was never there. So that has worked out perfectly.
My dad won't stay anywhere for more than a few hours before he has to get home.
Not to mention, not everyone has the best relationship with their parents.
I love mine, and they are rock star grandparents. But our relationship is complicated, especially with my mom. She is incredibly overbearing. Some hard boundaries need to be put in place and constantly enforced. It gets tiresome and creates a lot of needless stress in the house.
I prefer short, more frequent visits so I don't feel bad if I have to pull the plug on a moment's notice. We live close enough that we can do this.
