  • Your mother-in-law takes control of your party planning.

    Dealing with your husband's mother can be a very tricky situation, so start with the positive by showering her with compliments, and then return the focus to you. Burton says this strategy will make her feel good while also giving the impression that you want to take over for your own pleasure—not because she is being overbearing. Try saying, "You throw amazing parties, and I know this probably is a snap for you, but I've got lots of ideas and have been looking forward to this for a long time." She should step back and respect your enthusiasm, but if she replies with, "Can't I help with anything?" then tell her you just want her to relax and enjoy the party, and then invite her to a post-party coffee recap a few days later.
