Follow these rules to keep the waters cool and calm between you and mom.

Tell her what a great job she did as a mother. This is a proactive strategy that works like a charm. It will most likely bring her to tears-- and that is great! Just remember that someday you too will perhaps raise a son and can you think of a more wonderful compliment that that? Surely not! So, speaking of compliments ...

5. Compliment her looks.

Remember, your MIL can be just as self-conscious as you are. So take the time to notice how pretty, thin, healthy and young she looks, occasionally asking her if you can borrow a certain item of clothing, such as a scarf or a purse. She'll feel just great that you like her style! Do Looks Matter?
