It makes it very hard when you don't get along with your husband's family...or I should say they don't get along with you...I'd suggest you and your husband sitting down to dinner at a nuetral spot unless you feel they would make a scene and talkin to them about their issues with your other children and you and if that doesn't resolve things then I would limit the contact they have until they get the picture that your a packaged deal!

You really have to sit down and discuss the issue with your husband. He should be the one to talk to his parents about the problem. If he dosen't or wont then maybe you need to confront them on the issue, sometimes just talking to then about how they make you feel helps. Its important that the kids all be loved equally even by their grandparents.

Tell your husband how you feel. How awful such bad behaviour. My mother-in-law is a pain in the butt and drives me up the wall but she loves both my children very much.
I agree very much with Adjoa your husband needs to speak with them, it does not need to be an arguement but he needs to explain that they have to respect his choice of partner and that he loves you and your children equally and they must to, otherwise they will end up with limited contact which in the long run means they loose out.

O wow. Thats shocking. They only like the child that looks like your husband! The best thing you can honestly do is try your best to ignore them. Its unfair on both you and your children. I also have issues with in laws and it can be very angering at times. Talk to your husband about it. Is he aware of what is happening? If so then he needs to be a man, sit them down, and make it known to them that they cant treat his family like this. Good luck
