Do you get compared to a sybling/step sybling?

I do and it irritates me. My mom constantly tells me how wonderful my step sister and her kids are. Do you go through this w/your parents? Or Is my Mom just really special,lol?

  • I don't have either so I've always had my parents undivided attention which wasn't always a good thing lol.

  • Yup. And it stinks. All I ever hear is how talented he is, and how hard he is working, and on and on and on. Then I get how I don't do enough, I don't raise my kids right, and not to turn into a show-off for making a 4.0 in school while being a parent.

  • I was always compared to my cousin by my grandmother. I absolutely hated it.
