Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Susan Forward's practical and powerful book will help couples cope with terrible and toxic in-laws.

Toxic in-laws are in-laws who create genuine chaos through various assaults--aggressive or subtle--on you and your marriage. Toxic-in laws come in a wide variety of guises, " The Critics.; ", who tell you what you're doing wrong, "The Controllers.;", who try to run you and your partner's life, " The Engulfers.;", who make incessant demands on your time, " The Masters of Chaos.;", who drain you and your partner with their problems, and, " The Rejecters.;", who let you know they don't want you as part of their family.

Susan Forward draws on real-life voices and stories of both women and men struggling to free themselves from the frustrating, hurtful and infuriating relationships with their toxic in-laws. Dr. Forward offers you highly effective communication and behavioral techniques for getting through to partners who won't or can't stand up to their parents. Next, she lays out accessible and practical ways to reclaim you marriage from your in-laws. She shows you what to say, what to do and what limits to set. If you follow these strategies, you may not turn toxic in-laws into the in-laws of your dreams, but you will find some peace in your relationship with them.

Synopsis:

Problems with in-laws are difficult to deal with because they carry a unique set of issues of authority, control, power, and the time-honored feeling that they "know better."<P>Dr. Forward identifies the different types of in-laws, as well as their behavior tactics and motivations, from the most benign to the most toxic. She explains what they do, why they do it, and the traps couples fall into. Including a helpful survival guide Toxic In-Laws will help readers find their own voice, reconnect with the one they love, and reconnect with themselves.
