Dr Phil: Dealing With Your In-Laws

Dr. Phil has tips on how to deal with in-laws that will bring peace to your life.

  • Your family is your number one priority. You need to focus on your energy on you and not divide your loyalties. 
  • Set up good boundaries with your in-laws. You have a right to say when they are and are not invited in your lives. It’s OK to tell your parents to step back.
  • If your in-laws start to drain you, you need to change the boundaries. You can put infinite energy into your in-laws because that leaves nothing for your family.
  • Your partner should handle their parents and you should handle yours. It’s not your partner’s job to manage your parents.
  • Don’t take your frustrations out on your partner. Criticizing their relationship with their parents can lead to complications in your own relationship.
