It's not your news to tell. Let him tell it when and how he wants to tell it.

If DDIL wants to go shopping, go. If she brings up the situation, and you can listen actively without giving your opinion or getting emotionally involved, listen. If you can't (I know I couldn't), then simply tell her that you know she needs to talk, but you're too close to the situation to listen.

The reach-out may have been rebuffed because DDIL wants to see ACTION, no more talk. But, you are Switzerland do you're not judging what they are doing.

You can, however, set up rules for your DS. If he's boarding there, then he should be treated like a boarder. How much is he paying for room and board?
