Do you think it is okay for a MIL...

to always tell her DIL to "Be Sweet!" when they say their goodbyes. (Lives 3 hours away)

I could either be the DIL or MIL in this situation, I will not say which one so I can get unbiased answers.

No, it sounds like discipline.

I don't see a problem with her telling anyone to be sweet when they leave.

It just sounds like a harmless sort of condolence. Sorta like Be Good.

Either she thinks the other needs some attitude improvement, ar it could be a regional or family kind of saying.

In the south it's a fairly common way of saying goodbye.

I never had a problem with it. My MIL said it to me quite often.

But some people have sticks up their asses and take offense over the stupidest things and I am guessing this would be one of them.

I don't see a problem with it. Sounds kinda nice. Just like a little reminder, and we could all use that now and then.
