Published in 1937, this work was one of the first self-help guides. It is intended for future mothers-in-law, so that they avoid the mistakes that make their status so prone to clichés and jokes. They are advised in particular not to automatically denigrate their son-in-law or their daughter-in-law, to avoid gratuitous remarks on the keeping of the house or the education of children or even not to drape themselves too much in their dignity. From the first meeting to home visits through the wedding, no subject is left to chance. While some advice will still resonate today for anyone with a somewhat intrusive mother-in-law, others are hilarious in their quaint charm. They make you reflect with humor on the evolution of mores. "If you're not asked for your opinion, don't give it. “Naturally, it is very unpleasant to have your son or daughter 'stolen'. But mothers-in-law have no reason to complain. They did the same thing to their own mother in their time. “Obviously, a mother-in-law once raised children herself, otherwise she would not have risen to that venerable status. But she must be aware that it was a long time ago and that things have changed. She has changed. The children have changed. And his principles of education are probably outdated. »
