I know this is a favourite topic for many Indian ladies and they all are really curious to know how they can handle their mother-in-laws. Well, I won’t make the intro really long but before starting off I would like to say that this post is in no way a mean to demean all the wonderful mother-in-laws of our country. Each one is unique and they are a very important part of our family.
But as we have problems with our own mothers, we can have some problems with our mother-in-laws too but there is always a solution to every problem. And this post is all about that. Talking about 5 types of the mother in laws and ways to deal with them!
5 Types of Mother-in-laws and How to deal with them:
- Over jealous and protective mother-in-law:
Well, this is the most common mother-in-laws in the world and I feel this is really natural too. As you are possessive about your child, she is possessive about hers. I know this sounds a bit weird to you if you want to deal with her, just praise her. Tell her that you love the way she raised her child and you would like to raise your child like her. If you do so, she will be happy and will feel that you are a nice girl who likes her and so you are not a hindrance between she and her son! Play smart loves.
- Not happy with you kind of mother-in-law:
When your mother-in-law is not happy with you and tries to demean you in every possible way, in front of everyone then I know, it is a pathetic feeling. She will compare you with other daughter-in-laws as well as other girls of the family. But when you are dealing with her, just politely ask her why she doesn’t like you. Tell her that you are his son’s choice and she should respect you and her son’s choice.
- Bossy mother-in-law:
Well, this one is a terror when she lands on your doorstep. She will be a hindrance in everything you do. She will throw out the things you kept in your fridge and will ask you questions million times a day. Well, dealing with this mother-in-law is a tough job but be patient. Politely tell her that you are comfortable this way only and you want to do things like that. In this way, she will understand your point and won’t be offended as well. (Hope so! )
- The perfectionist mother-in-law:
Well, this can be a difficult task as she is a perfectionist in everything she does. Well, dealing with her can be pretty easy. Just tell her you can’t be a perfectionist like her. She is awesome but you need time to get that awesomeness in you. And then forget about it. Do whatever you please to do and do it your way. It is your life at the end of the day!
- The nosy mother-in-law:
A nosy mother-in-law is one who is really nosy about everything you do and wants to know about every minute detail of your daily life. Be it cooking or your weekend, she wants to be aware of every little thing going on in your life. I know it is a bit pathetic but when you have a mother-in-law like this, make sure to talk to your husband and draw a line after a discussion.Make an agreement with your hubby that we will only let her know up to this not more! In this way, you can live your own life and tell her the details that you only want to tell.
That’s all folks! Hope you got some help with this post. But always remember one thing!
Be happy and always be a happy family!
