GF Gloats Over BF's Kids More Than Her Own

Is it strange for the live in GF to gloat over and post pictures on social media of her BF kids (never of her own)? Her conversations and plans are always about the BF's kids. She has 2 of her own, he has 4. Her children are there 24/7, his 1/2 the week. It's wonderful for children from split families to have to have bonus moms and dads that love them. The idea of children being used to win the attention of another doesn't seem healthy.

Well, it is one possibility... Tell mom, that if it bothers her she does need to address it.
Personally, I do not allow anyone (including myself and husband, my kids dad) to post pictures of my underage kids. Once they're 18, its different, but that was always my policy. My friends weren't always happy, because we have kids of the same ages, and they wouldn't be able to post pics of their kids if mine were in therm, but they did respect my requests.
Good luck!

I'm the grandmother and thank you for the insight. Never crossed mind of that as a possibility.

Are you the children's mother?
Perhaps the woman has an agreement not to post pictures/activities of her children, but her partner doesn't mind her posting his.
Unless you are in the middle of that relationship, you do not know.
If you are BM to the children in question, and you are bothered by it, address it with your attorney and have orders drawn that NO ONE, including yourself, is allowed to post photos/activities of your children online.
