My husband has a son from a girl he never dated, he pays child support and we see him often. The issue I have is my mother in law doesn't like my daughter and she spoils my step son. I'm glad he gets love but it eats away at me that see treats my daughter like crap. She has a very good relationship with the other girl, she even watches a child she had from another man. Why would she do this? I ignore it until I hear from other family members how much she does for them. She bought him a Wii and my daughter got oversized dresses that she wouldn't even put on her other grandchildren. She constantly calls me names to everyone but me. She doesn't show my daughter any affection, my daughter knitted that is her grandma, but I don't think she feels it. she came to pick up money cause my husband and her are on the same insurance, and he took my daughter out there and my daughter came back mad saying why was she laughing at me, my daughter is 3 and very smart. I am just curious as to why she treats us so bad is this common for a mother in law.btw to add she used to talk bad about my husbands sons mother but I wouldn't join in.

You need to sit that witch down and tell her that her behavior could be damaging your daughters self esteem in the long run, and if she wants to participate with you guys she needs to stop with the preferential behavior. Address the issue calmly and in a way that she can understand that you are concerned not jealous or petty.
Hope this helps!
Good luck with the mean grandma!

Sad thing is we have she told my husband I talk to her referring to his sons Mom more then you... her own son. I try to be strong but going by this past weekend seeing the girls daughter from the man after my husband there was a slap to my face. Like how could she watch her and not care to see my daughter. Do you think legally they are over stepping boundaries because the girl will call my mil instead of us.
