My daughter was 2 months old when me and my husband got together. He has been there with her from the beginning. She has never met her real dad. The problem lies with my husband's mother and sister. We have 2 boys together and they will call to see if my middle son can stay with them, go out to dinner ect but never asks my daughter or my youngest son. It doesn't phase my son because he is too little to understand but my daughter is heartbroken every time. I don't want to stop my son from seeing them but at the same time I don't want to see my daughter go through this anymore. What should I do?

I am truly sorry that you had to deal with this. It can be devastating for the child. Thank you for your advice it was very helpful and not something I would have thought of.

This Common Sad Scenario. I don't GET it. There is almost nothing you can do about it because if the in-Law's don't get it, you cant talk to them and feel like they will be genuine afterwards. Next time just tell them sure your son can go to dinner, ask them where, and then comment how you will meet them there because the other children would love to go too. I really feel for you having to go through this. I grew up being the Grandaughter of a Grandmother of the such. Its weird, awkward, confusing, and flat out a waste of time. Sweet blessings to you and your family as a whole.
