The In-Law Survival Manual: A Guide to Cultivating Healthy In-Law Relationships
"An excellent resource for understanding the dynamics of the in-law relationship and how to make yours a positive experience."--Cele G. Lalli, Editor-in-Chief, Modern Bride magazine.
Adding new family members to the mix can be tough. Not all mothers-in-law are controlling, and not all brothers-in-law are lazy. But even if you have problem in-laws, you can learn to change your relationship with them. In fact, once you clear the natural hurdles, you may even learn to like your in-laws!
In this wise and witty guide, family therapist Gloria Call Horsley offers practical advice on how to prevent, identify, and solve in-law problems. You'll learn how to negotiate common trouble spots--like power, money, and family holidays. This survival manual is packed with helpful exercises to improve your in-law relationships, and you can also use the handy quiz in this book to find out what kind of in-law you are.
Whether you're about to get married, or you've been struggling with your in-laws for decades, it's never too late to build healthy (and even loving!) in-law relationships. Let The In-Law Survival Manual show you how.
