First and foremost, you need to get them and you out of your parents house. Stop leaving them with your parents. Contact an attorney now and find out what the grandparent rights are. How far are you moving from them? did you intend for your parents not to have contact with you or the kids after you move.

I AM MOVING A HOUR AND A HALF AWAY, THE REASON THAT THEY ARE THERE IS THAT WE LIVE THERE AND THE KIDS ARE HOME SCHOOLED. MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE GRANDPARENTS RIGHT THAT THEY HAVE TO PROVE ME AS AN UNFIT MOTHER AND ALL THEY HAVE IS THAT I WORK AND IM NOT HOME DURING THE WEEK BUT ONLY ON THE WEEKENDS. I AM NOT ABUSIVE TO THE KIDS, SHE HAS GOT MY CHILDREN SAYING THAT THEY DON'T WANT TO LIVE WITH ME, THAT THEY WANT TO STAY WITH GRANDPARENTS. I BELIEVE THAT SHE HAS BRAINWASHED MY CHILDREN. THIS IS KILLING ME THAT MY CHILDREN DON'T WANT TO LIVE WITH ME.

Your parents will do worse if you continue to stay where you are... if you intend to marry in february, then you need to see if you and him can expedite the move now. Move now, and marry then... and get your children into regular school since you are unable to provide the homeschooling yourself.

You need to make a choice. Stay there and allow your parents to continue to tell them how horrible you are for moving them from your parents and that they will never see them again, or make a stand and move now, knowing you are getting married in 5 months and get your children into regular school.

Either way... if you want to stop the issue with your parents telling the kids things while you are working... then you need to move them out of your parents influence.

Set up a video camera during the day to try to catch what your parents are doing to your kids.
