I've been divorced for about five years and remarried for about three years. I have two children from my current marriage and two children from my previous marriage. My ex remarried last year and her family is rich and loves to give gobs and gobs of presents to my two oldest girls. My husband's family gives gifts to all of my children, not just the ones that are biologically his. I don't expect my ex's inlaws to give my children from my new marriage gifts, but I am concerned that my children will see my oldest two daughters getting a lot more presents than them and wonder why. I have thought about giving my oldest daughters their presents from my ex in a seperate room, where my youngest won't see. I've also thought about dividing the gifts up so that everyone gets the same amount. I'm not sure how to handle this. Does anyone have some advice on this issue?
