It's not totally certain that he would - it really does become the mother's role with Kribs and the maternal instinct is very strong.
Could you not remove the other inhabitants? (You might even need to remove the male as sometimes they get perceived to be a danger by the mother, although sometimes he gets 'tolerated' and is even allowed a bit of 'minding' activity).
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl - year after year.
It's a long way to Tipperary.
