I'm sure many of us have at one time or another been involved in a dispute that's come between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in -law -- even if only because you're part of a family where such a dispute happens. (In those cases, it's often hard to know whose side to be "on," because you can see both sides of the issue.)

With the holidays looming -- Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Christmas tumbling in on us imminently -- we all know these issues will likely develop again.

I know in my experience with my first mother-in-law, I never had any idea WHAT things I said would set her off. Speaking in her presence was like a walk in a land mine.

(Nor did I know she would have such bad taste in presents. On Christmas, I always knew that she'd give me something that either didn't fit, was ugly, or was awful for some other reason.)

One year she gave me a gray cardigan sweater that probably qualified as my "Worst. Present. Ever." First of all, I hate cardigans and never wear them. Secondly, gray was not my color. And thirdly, I don't know where she found it, but it looked like a dollar store buy -- it had cables and the cabling on one sleeve was TOTALLY different than the cabling on the other sleeve. ACKKK!!

40 years later I can laugh about this. But at the time I was feeling like she saw me as an OUT-LAW rather than an "in-law."

So it is with great pleasure that I share with you this week's NABBW teleseminar.

Deanna Brann, Ph.D., author of "Reluctantly Related: Secrets to Getting Along With Your Mother-in-Law or Daughter-in-Law" will be our guest.

The call is free, lasts an hour, and is open to the public, so be sure to tell your friends about it. Plus, you can go to the link below and send in questions now, which Deanna will answer on the call...

Here's a link to all the details: Reluctantly Related: Tips for MIL-DIL Harmony

This was a fantastic -- and very timely -- call.

Plus she made an offer to receive an autographed copy of her "Reluctantly Related" book, plus receive her second book, "Mother-in-Law & Daughters-in-Law Say the Darndest Things," for just $13 TOTAL. The first book is normally selling for $16.95.

Details on how to receive this book offer are on the recording. Use the same URL I listed above to listen to the recording at your convenience: (Or PM me and I will give you the specifics.)
