When it comes to dealing with a passive-aggressive relative, bring your sense of humor, says Leonard Felder, Ph.D., author of When Difficult Relatives Happen to Good People: Surviving Your Family and Keeping Your Sanity (Rodale, 2005). “See if you can predict [her] sneaky and guilt-inducing comments, then silently tell yourself, ‘Wow, I called it,” says Felder. The best approach with the passive-aggressive mother-in-law is to say yes only when you mean yes and, when you want to say no, say it gently and calmly. (Easier said than done? Nah!)
