How do I do this MIL thing well? What are the “tips”? What is the secret to being a great MIL?
After a bit of searching online, I did find some advice about MILs and DILs that is worth repeating. Here it is: from http://www.grandparents.com:
“Let go of your expectations about how things should be
and work with the way things are.
This means accepting the complete cast of characters
who make up your whole crazy extended family ….”
Acceptance. Yeah. That’s a major component of a great MIL/DIL relationship.
