4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Live With Your In-Laws
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Great book. I only wish I had read it 15 years ago as it seemed like the author was writing about my in laws and the absolutely devastating affect they had on our lives. Although, ironically, I'm not sure I would have appreciated it as much had we not so tragically suffered as a result of their toxicity.
Family of origin issues can make a person, especially a child, vulnerable to the world's evil, regardless of their age, and "Toxic-In-Laws" are perhaps the single biggest cause of this vulnerability because they were "toxic parents" long before they became toxic-in-laws. If you even suspect this to be the case in your marriage use this book as guide to fix it immediately because, trust me, left challenged, they can have devastating consequences.
Short and reasonable advice. Excellent and helpful book. I'm a grandmother so I bought it to avoid being the toxic in-law. Good advice on dealing with difficult family members without starting a World War. Also good way to analyze your own response and whether it is helping or hurtung. Has the added benefit of being short and to the point. Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. This book has been helping my marriage it's absolutely a lifesaver.

My husband now is starting to see how toxic his parents are thank God. It's a must buy. Susan Forward's books are always well written and this one is no exception. You'll recognize some of your in-laws if there's dysfunction in the family you married into and be offered ways to disengage effectively so their impact on your life is minimized. This book was amazing. I read and then shared chapters relevant to our situation with my husband. It is life changing. Before this book he was oblivious to why he behaved the way he did with his parents and didn't see anything wrong with the unhealthy dynamic.
His parents fall under the category of Controllers. There is an entire chapter on each type of toxic inlaw. My husband was able to realize the control they were having on our family and the negative effects. Once he had this self awareness he was able to implement necessary changes without getting trapped in the feelings of guilt or being manipulated by their typical tactics which were discussed in this book.

Verified Purchase. First the Good One should never speak poorly of their husbands mother. It isn't necessary to put someone else down to convey your hurt feelings or confusion.
Its also important to make sure you are not projecting any thing onto a mother in law that comes from your own past.
The Bad The author puts an enormous sense of responsibility on a daughter in law to make sure the mother in law is included. While admirable it is poor advice to place the burden of pleasing people onto others. We control our own joy it is not someone's job to please us. The author needs to reevaluate her implied burden and instead encourage more clear communication between a daughter and mother in law and encourage them both to lay aside their pride and humble themselves and allow each other to be wives mothers and grandmothers without hurting disrespecting or encroaching on the other.
The author describes a woman named "Alice" who had to remind her husband to call and send letters to his mother her mother in law.
