I have alot of resentment towards some of my husbands family for how they treat my son.

Just some examples are: Did not come to his baby shower or get him anything. Did not come to his 2nd bday party or get him anything but got my stepson presents and candy on his birthday which is 17 days after my sons. They are always leaving him out. It really irritates me and I have tried to explain to them and they say well we werent getting along but that has nothing to do with my son. Specially when they do stuff and give stuff to my stepson who they see just as much as my son. I just really need to know how to get past it because my sons birthday is in a day and all I can think about is how he got nothing from his grandparents last year and his brother did. I just think of nasty remarks to say. HELP!

Sounds like you and your husband have tried they are not co operating and respecting your wishes so you just may have to take it a step further which is forbid the one child from getting the gifts tell them in a nice way im sorry but we cannot accept this gift at this time until we feel that all our children are treated fairly. Its up to them after that how they handle it. If they choose not to speak to you then so be it their loss in the end!

It is his parents and he has talked to them multiple times it has been going on for three years it only ends in a fight to where we are all not speaking. His mom does not see what she does wrong and he is to mad to talk right.. I have written letters and e-mails but it is just really hard to tell her anything.

That really sucks!! Is it possible to have a talk with your husband? Im assuming that these grandparents are his parents? Maybe he can have a talk with them sounds like he should put his foot down and say to his parents that its unacceptable and will not be tolerated if you cant provide gifts for one of my children then i dont want gifts for the other one. Your right weather you are getting along or not the kids have nothing to do with it!

Also I am 6 months pregnant with our second son and I have set it in my mind if they start treating this one the same I am cutting them out of my kids life. I wont tolerate my children to be treated differently just because they dont like me. My children are their blood and our first son looks and acts like his dad to a T.
