Grandmothers and Daughter-In-Laws – 5 Helpful Tips For A Healthy Relationship

By Tammy Embrich

I have a wonderful relationship with my daughter-in-law. We get along so well, especially regarding caring for my new grandson. 🙂

Some people can’t admit to this, as it can be a sticky situation. Maybe there is jealousy going on? Or you have very different opinions about child discipline. And this is fine…various opinions are OK. As long as you abide by your son and daughter-in-law’s wishes, especially if you care for your grandbabies full or part time.

You can be a great Grandmother and still get along beautifully with your son’s wife. However, there are certain things you just simply need to stay out of. There is nothing worse than an interfering Mother-In-Law or Grandmother.

Do you have issues with this? Do you feel it’s hard to stay out of your son and Daughter-In-Law’s affairs? Below are some helpful tips.


1. Communication – Staying connected with your daughter-in-law is vital to your relationship. Lack of communication can most definitely break that connection. It is important to always talk about everything that is a concern for both parties.

2. Respect – Always respect and be considerate of each other’s opinions, feelings, and thoughts.

3. Don’t be an interfering Mother-In-Law – It’s always a bad idea to put your 2 cents worth in where it doesn’t belong. It’s best to stay out of your son’s business after he has married. You need to let them make their own decisions as well as mistakes. They need to grow and find their own way. However, if your opinion or advice is asked for, then by all means, give it.

4. Be happy for your son and daughter-in-law – Your child has found his perfect spouse. Be happy for them and make it a habit to always celebrate their love for each other. This is so very important for your children’s healthy relationships.

5. Don’t show favoritism between your in law and your own child – If you do, there will sure to be problems lurking. Treat them both the same, as these are YOUR kids. Their birthdays is a perfect example for this. Don’t celebrate more for one than the other. You have a wonderful family, enjoy them and always treat them equally.

Family is so very important. You should be extremely happy that your child has found someone that makes them happy and complete. Then when your grandchildren come along, you will have a much better relationship with all of them.
