In-Law Course

We’ve all seen the movies and heard the stories about crazy in-laws and how disastrous these relationships can be. However, for many, the reality of interacting with in-laws is not comical. Rather, these relationships can be complex, confusing, hurtful, and they can create massive amounts of conflict between partners. Then, add kids to the mix and it becomes even more challenging to know how to navigate the in-law/grandparent relationship. 

Just because there are challenges in the in-law relationship does not mean the relationship cannot be close or grow. This course can help couples: 

  • Establish how they want their relationships with their in-laws to be

  • Help couples communicate with one another about their expectations, boundaries, and challenges with their in-laws (also the things they enjoy)

  • Learn how to communicate boundaries with in-laws

  • Navigate the in-law/grandparent relationship in a manner that supports the family’s relationship with in-laws and grandparents

  • Maintain their couple connection even in the midst of conflict, differing views, and feeling pulled between family and their partnered relationship.
