"You have to deal With a subversive mother- in-law In ways she doesn't understand: "First. If she lives with you and thinks your job is a snap, let her have it. Get out Ruth Hlllett and get a Job yourself and let her try coping with the housework. "Second. Study her tactics and stop sticking your neck out. Make your husband share the responsibility of family decisions and she won't dare criticize them. "Third. Have a talk with your husband on the subject of loyalty and sticking by each other whether right or wrong. Don't mention your mother-in-law In this talk. "Fourth. Qive your husband credit for a little sense and th» ability to discount his mother'* talk even though he doesn't discus* It. He must be loyal to his mother, too. " Don't jump to the conclusion that you've been reading the advice of a hard-hearted daughter- in-law. You haven't. That letter was written by a man. Actually they are pretty practical suggestions with the exception of number one. But even that one might work for some women. However, the average woman probably doesn't want to turn her home over to another woman. Besides, that isn't really solving a problem but running away from It to escapa from her own home to an office. Anyway, those are a man's suggestions for handling a trouble- making mother-in-law. If you decide to try them don't ignore th« importance of number four.
