The Daughter-In-Law Rules

Brides are oftentimes referred to as “blushing.” But do we ever stop to think it may be because her mother-in-law-to-be just said something disparaging to her?

We’ve all heard horror stories of the infamous mother-in-law; just whispering those three small words makes it seem like the words themselves have the power to turn us to stone. Fortunately, I’ve been blessed with a terrific MIL (and I’m not just saying that ’cause she’s reading this).

However, for those of you who are embarking on the path to marriage and may be fretting about the perils of what your new life holds for you (i.e. being a good wife, a homemaker, someday a mother, and yes, a daughter-in-law), there’s now a handbook just for you.

The Daughter-In-Law Rules, written by Sally Shields, an award-winning pianist, composer, speaker, author, radio personality, and of course, daughter-in-law, has put together 101 “sure-fire ways to manage (and make friends with) your MIL.”

This book isn’t only filled with practical advice—it’s also light-hearted and just plain funny. From dealing with “The Newly Wed” and “House and Home” to “Her Beloved Son” and “Before and After the Baby,” Sally has rules for any and all circumstances.

This book would make a great addition to any bridal shower gift and, with a little imagination, could even be incorporated into a bridal shower game.

“The Daughter-In-Law Rules can be purchased on (and anywhere else online) as well as at Check out, and you can receive 101 free bonus gifts from relationship experts and success coaches worldwide just for buying one copy of the book!”

In honour of all daughters-in-law past, present, and future, Families Matter is holding a “Tell Us Your Funniest/Worst/Most Memorable MIL Moment.”

Contest is FREE to enter and runs from September 27 through October 11. Winner will receive a copy of The Daughter-in-Law Rules.

Sally Shields, author of The Daughter-in-Law Rules, is also going to be a guest judge. So come on, gals, you know you want to—get those stories in! And in case you have a truly wicked story about your MIL, we will keep your identity a secret. ;)
