4 ways to leave a positive impression on your in- laws

19 September 2016, 15:11 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I once told someone that if they visited someone and they were served snails, would they eat? They said no. I told them if you are a guest at someone‘s house it would be disrespectful to not eat whatever they chose to serve you unless you lie it is a medical condition or something like a lifestyle choice- like you are a vegetarian.

Avoid complaining

Maybe it is the food you might not like, or how long this visit is taking compared to what you had estimated. Don’t look irritable. If the food is not palatable you will have to just swallow it with water as compared to refusing to eat or making a face while you are at it. I once slept at a friend’s house and the breakfast was not what I am used to. The mom was at the table, the aunt, the sisters and all their kids and everyone was looking at me. I have never struggled to look casual while eating as that day.

Don’t be busy on your phone

For once in your life; you will have to pay attention to conversation. Don’t keep checking your phone or go to social media if the talks become boring. Just keep your phone on silent and be interested in whatever someone is saying even though they are not interesting to listen to.

Stick to appropriate conversation and avoid being too invasive

Small talk is important here. You do not want to come off to strong and you also do not want to be mum. Let them take the lead and when it comes to awkward silences that is when you step in. But avoid talking about issues your partner may have told you in confidence and may be sensitive. Don’t inquire after something that will create an awkward silence.

If you are too nervous they will think you are trying to hide something

Or they will assume you are putting u a front for them which makes them suspicious of you. Try to relax and do not avoid eye contact while you talk.
