Are there some daughter in laws of a different kind?Sometime ago, I had published an article on "How to treat your daughter-in-law as your daughter". The entire article was based on all true life instances. Yes, I did know the negative stories too. But I did not refer to them at all. I wanted the article to talk about positives only.
A couple of members did point out that the converse is true. There are daughter-in-laws who are not so good or have behaviours that suggest their domination. Have we come a full circle? I have indeed seen a few examples where the girl is very assertive. But am afraid those instances are somewhat rare in the urban environs where the elders themselves seem to have accepted new realities or have simply gone to the old age homes. There is a mutual give and take. About the rural environments, am not too sure.
What do members have to say on this issue? Are we seeing a role reversal and, if yes, is it very severe?
