I Keep My Mouth Shut

Dr. Laura,

I remember your advice to a past listener, you said the daughter-in-law was the lioness at the gate. If the mother-in-law wanted to see her grandchildren, she would have to comply with her daughter-in-law's wishes.

We rarely get to see our grandchildren because their parents keep them so busy that we only get the occasional babysitting. Once in a while we get to share a birthday party or the occasional holiday. 

In order for our grandchildren to know who we are, I keep my mouth shut! This ensures that we can see them once in a while. You were so right! Thank you for always looking out for children and helping show us an easy way to keep the peace. 

Do you have a special way you handle your in-laws? Send us an email and tell us, by signing up for the FREE Dr. Laura Family and send an email here.
