How many of you think that your mother could be a better mother-in-law and try to bring positive changes in her role by letting her know through your own experiences .. .. I am posting this because my sil , husband's sisiter is always complaining many things about her mil while she is also aware that similar things happen in my house too ... when it happens in my house she is giving me advice as to how I can improve my relationship with my mil , i.e her mother.. I have a very nice person as mil ... but she is dominating in many aspects and quite possessive of her son of which I dont complain. I am ok , so what ? many people of that age are so .. but when my sil is complaining about her mil for the same reasons I feel funny.
