I've read The Mother-in-Law Dance by Annie Chapman which helped me a lot. I also try to think about my own son when he grows up and how much I love him...
1. Because it's your husband's family, he has to do a lot of the dirty work. If things are going well, he can step aside, ha-ha! We have to be willing to try like Maurap said, for the kids.
2. I think MOST of the time, Mothers-in-Law are trying to be helpful (maybe because they think we're idiots) not meaning to critizise and not realizing how badly it hurts us. They too need to learn grace, how to keep their opinions to themselves, and have good boundaries.
