SHOULD I SAY SOMETHING TO MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW ABOUT HER REVEALING CLOTHES?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

My daughter-in-law dresses in such revealing outfits. It really bothers me. Should I say something?

–Concerned Mother (United States)

DEAR CONCERNED MOTHER:

First of all, let me say: No. And again, no.

But you might want to take the opportunity to think about what about your daughter-in-law’s clothes bothers you? Do you feel she’s too sexual and it makes you uncomfortable? Do you feel like she’s not contributing to a good image for your son? Or something else? Notice what her wardrobe brings up for you and just sit with it and notice what you notice and practice letting it be okay however she dresses.

There are many issues to potentially worry about, but I wouldn’t waste your energy on bringing up something like this, especially as it may cause some friction between the two of you, or between you and your son.
