She shows favortism with certain grandchildren. She has 7 grandchildren, 3 of which are mine. My youngest she says is her favorite and my daughter is her favorite grandaughter, she only has 2 and she has told her other grandaughter that my daughter is her favorite. My oldest, which is also her oldest grandchild is graduating from highschool. She booked a trip on his graduation day and told him that she won't be going to his graduation because she doesn't want too. I feel so angry at her for this and I also feel really bad for my son. I'm really good to her, which she says I'm her favorite daughter inlaw (out of 3). I just feel like I don't want to do anything nice for her anymore.Answer Question
If you don't make a big deal out of it then it will minimize your children's pain. If they hear you talking about how awful grandma is then they are going to either think for the first time that grandma is unfair to them or have their ideas bolstered. You can take the attitude that grandma is just the way she is and never have no reaction about what she does one way or another. So what if she comes to graduation, one way or the other.
You can't control what she does but you can control what you do. Not being nice to her isn't the right thing to do and sets a bad example for your kids. You don't have to try and be her best friend but you should be nice.
