“The political family, like many bad few”
Sounds familiar phrase: “I marry him or her not with his family,” as nothing more false than this, because when we decided to get married with our partner, also decided to accept living with his family. So it is best to seek the best way to relate to it.
Among friends the topic of family policy is always present, as we used to joke or comment of how we have fared in the relationship with them; generally these comments are not very positive, work everything together if we talk about the mother or sisters.
It is known that for many of us the relationship we have had with the family of our partner, sometimes it is not the most appropriate and generally apply the phrase “the farther the better,” but what this rejection of many of us should by-laws?
Unfortunately the negative labels that have put especially the mother and the sisters have weighed heavily on our culture, often without knowing we make judgments and we get defensive at the comments or attitudes they perform; really few people who have managed to establish a cordial relationship with the political family.
However we must not forget that the couple that we choose, just came out and grew within the family and as a result many of the benefits he or she were learned within that family. The important thing is to learn to live with a family with other than yours customs, when we are with our family we feel like talking about whatever, because finally they have raised us or seen us grow, but perhaps in the house your partner is different.
Sees in them allies to encourage your children values such as respect, tolerance, generosity and prudence, and that within a family there will always be different opinions because each member is a person with ideas and feelings.
In this era where now there is a lot of only children, the opportunity to live and interact with cousins or family is important for our children to develop healthy social skills.
Recall that at some point we also integrate and are part of a political family. Give the same treatment as we would like to us from our role of mother, sisterS, cousinS, and more. Remember: “Do not do to others thinks what you do not want for you.”
For this reason we want to give you some tips to improve your relationship with your in-laws:
- Although the relationship with a member of the political family is not optimal, be attentive and act politely.
- Collaborates when you go visiting and encourages any pastime meeting or occasionally.
- Do not make comparisons of your family with your partner
- Faced with bad behavior on your part, stay calm and try to at least be polite.
Encourage your partner to also adopt these attitudes with your relatives.
- “And remember in the family is the solution.”
