NBA Stal? Wrlt« Buth Mtlletf A successful mother-in-law writes to me: "So many of the women I know, have—or think they have daughter-in-law trouble that it really pu?j.les me. "I have three daughters-in-law and I get along well with all of them—and It doesn't take much effort, cither. I think, perhaps, It Is because I have consistently followed a few fundamental rules," And here they are, just as she lists them: One: "I don't burden my sons or their wives with my • problems ami troubles. Most young couples have enough troubles of their own. as I well remember from my own experience." Two: "I never, under any circumstances, criticize my daughters- in-law, facc-to-face, to their.hus- bands, or to my friends." • "Three: "I don't pry Into my married children's business, or pursue n subject they seem reluctant to discuss. If they want to talk about their problems, I'm willing to listen. But I never try to draw them ovt when I feel simcthlug !s wrong." Doesn't Offer Unwanted Advice Four: "I don't offer any advice or suggestions. After all. I didn't want my mother-in-law telling me how to run my life—and I figure young wives haven't changed much In that resnect since I was one." Five: "I try never to make my sons feel that they are neglecting their father nnd me since they have homes of their own. Naturally, they haven't as much time for us as they once had. That's only natural and Is a fact every mother of grown children must accept, or become resentful. Six: "I try to keep my own life filled with enough interests and activities so that I am not completely absorbed in my .sons' lives." Those are pretty good rules for any mother-in-law. It seems to me. and the woman who cat) abide by them ovght not to have much daughter - In - law or son - In - law trouble. 8329 11-18 Livestock By Sue Burneti A three-piece set designed t please the Junior who sews summe play clothes.
