Don't Focus On The Negative
Don't Focus On The Negative

I have the most amazing relationship with my daughter in law. I approached this new marriage the same way I had with my daughter and son-in-law years ago. I enjoyed her company, I kept quiet, and I supported her.

They have now been married eight years and have two precious daughters. They have lived with us twice when they were getting back on their feet. We took care of their daughter at nights while they worked. They now own two businesses and are homeowners. They have little to no child care, as they are committed to raising their daughters.

My daughter-in-law asks advice from time to time. I also ask her questions about her values and beliefs, although sometimes I do tell her how I'd handle a situation. She is a bright, intelligent, focused young woman who is a great friend and I appreciate her. I am convinced the key is to appreciate and support the other person. Focus on what you want more of and disregard the negatives.

How do you handle your relationship with your in-laws? Send us an email and tell us, by signing up for the FREE Dr. Laura Family and send an email here.
