Mother-in-Law… you either love her or hate her, right? In most cases, mother-in-law usually carries somewhat of a negative connotation, in my opinion.
Have you ever wondered just exactly what it would take to win over the #1 woman in your man’s life? If so, Sally Shields has written the perfect book for you, The Daughter-in-Law Rules: 101 Surefire Ways to Manage (and Make Friends with) Your Mother-in-Law.
Sally used to have a rocky relationship with her MIL and was able to come up with some coping strategies to make things more pleasant. “I started writing down all the bloopers that I seemed to make over and over with her and created a rule and solution to deal with each and every one,” Shields said.
The Daughter-in-Law Rules is broken into five sections:
Rule #5-Compliment your MIL’s looks—OFTEN!
On House & Home:
Rule #26-Agree with your MIL about what a disaster your home is.
Her Beloved Son:
Rule #53-Never let your husband catch you imitating your MIL’s voice.
Before & After the Baby:
Rule #60-Dress your newborn immediately with outfits from your MIL.
Most Of All:
Do Everything you can to make your MIL Proud!
In Sally’s own words, this is how she made her MIL proud:
When your MIL finds out you’re writing a book about her tell her you’re going to make a million bucks. She’ll be super-psyched and say, “I know I can be a bitch, Sally! I’m a Leo! But you’re stubborn too. We’re a lot alike, you know! Now, go write a bestseller or I’ll kick your butt!”
I would definitely recommend this book. Not only is it useful, but it is also chock full of fun. You will find yourself chuckling through many of the scenarios because you know exactly what Sally is talking about. It’s nice to know you’re not the only one dealing with a hard to handle MIL.
The Daughter-In-Law Rules has been featured in Star Magazine and on the Tyra Banks Show. Dr. Laura says that The Daughter-in-Law Rules is a book that will inspire and enlighten you. Halle Berry even has her very own copy of The Daughter-in-Law Rules!!
The Daughter-in-Law Rules is also an Amazon.com Bestseller!!
Guess who Sally dedicated the book to??
She must be doing something right!!
