Re: Conflict between wife and mother getting out of hand
Basically I agree with the posters. However, they underestimate the mom's reaction, she could lean on the dad, other family members and may well be used to the regular conflict our poster finds distasteful. Our poster does not want 10 calls asking about the big fight with mo. I think the wife can be respectful without argument, and stand her position respectfully. Assuming the poster does not like conflict, make sure the discussion with mom does not spiral out of control and that means,
1. Read critical conversations a very good book.
2. Stay calm even if attacked. Think what points you want to make and do not go beyond them. If things seem to be spiraling out of control, end the conversation
