What are The Daughter-In-Law Rules?

"This is the handbook everyone has been waiting for! Finally, a how-to that will insure success with even the most challenging of mothers-in-law. Follow this advice, and you will experience a lifetime of wedded bliss!"

Susan Page, author, Why Talking is Not Enough

February 20, 2008, Denver, CO and New York, New York— Outskirts Press is pleased to announce the publication of The Daughter-in-Law Rules: 101 Surefire Ways to Manage (and Make Friends with) Your Mother-in-Law! by award-winning musician, composer, and author Sally Shields.

Your mother-in-law is coming! As your husband announces that his mother is due to arrive in a couple of hours, your hands sweat and your heart begins to palpitate as you quickly try to neaten and straighten the house to perfection. Help! Can you possibly live up to her standards? Will anything you do be to her satisfaction? Why does the mother of your beloved always cause such fear and trepidation?

Sound familiar? Millions of women have strained or outright hostile relationships with their "MIL" (mother-in-law). But does it have to be that way? Absolutely not! Author Sally Shields comes to the rescue with a delightful and witty book on how to deal with the other woman in your husband's life- his mom. "Although my own relationship with my mother-in-law got off to a rocky start," says Sally, "by implementing the devices outlined in The Daughter-in-Law Rules, we now enjoy a special bond."

Sally knew she needed to take matters into her own hands and change the dynamic with her MIL for the better, or risk her relationship with her husband. So she started jotting down every bothersome incident, misunderstanding, and irritating encounter and created a rule and a solution for each and every one of them. The Daughter-in-Law Rules covers everything from everyday household matters to unwanted advice on childrearing. It is chockfull of real-life situations and scenarios and how to deal with them all with grace and humor.

"The point of The Daughter-in-Law Rules is to help you stay one step ahead of your mother-in-law," says Sally. With a little effort and patience, every new wife will be able to coexist peacefully with her mother-in-law!
