It's not always easy to get on with our mothers in law - their reputation precedes them and we've all heard stories about domineering, critical, jealous women who try their best to ruin their child's relationship. Which is a bit unfair, as a lot of mothers in law are lovely people who only want the best for their family and are always on hand to help with the kids.
