Publisher's Description

Learn how to become a supportive and caring mother-in law instead of a “monster-in-law” who only gets in the way of her child’s marital happiness.

Just about everyone has heard a terrible joke or a horror story about someone else’s mother-in-law. Blending two families together often creates new and uncomfortable dynamics that will take some time to get used to, and sometimes mother-in-laws behave badly during these transitions. But these don’t need to be wildly uncomfortable transitions, and you don’t need to become the butt of everyone’s jokes. With What’s a Mother (in-Law) to Do?, author Jane Angelich (a mother-in-law herself) teaches readers how to become the mother-in-law they’ve always wished they had. Welcoming your child’s spouse into your life doesn’t have to be difficult, as long as you’re excited about building and nurturing respectful family relationships.

Rich with sidebars, practical suggestions, and stories of love and encouragement, this is the perfect book for anyone facing this new role or for those seasoned mother-in-laws who are simply seeking tips for improvement. Among the many pieces of valuable advice Angelich offers include:

• resist the urge to offer unsolicited advice

• allow the new couple to build their own home

• and respect the couple’s privacy

What’s a Mother (in-Law) to Do?
is so engaging and relatable, and it’s sure to help readers celebrate the special new relationships that marriage brings into their lives.
