Re: so worried about my daughter in law
Please let me tell you what I do in cases such as the one you mentioned.I treat every one who bothers me,as if they were five years old.I would never treat any
one, that age, in a disrespectful manner. I would smile and say back to them, something innocent ,that would not disturb them. Something like "thank you",or even a nice smile.Isn't that how you would treat a child,who spoke "out of turn"? One other way, is to never pay attention to other people's words,(if words are nasty).
People's words are nothing but people's thoughts,and cannot be controlled by you.
These words are not their feelings,which are something that you may have some influence over.Worry about their feelings later.Now, you are dealing with their words/
thoughts which are out of your control. The 5 year old caper is my thought; the rest is from a former negotiater in the middle-east. This stuff is good for any and all, who are bullied in any way.It sure worked on my lovely first born,after many long years
of combat. Good luck,Bill
