So, ...When my mom died and i started caring for my little brother he became my IL's grandson. They acknowledge this and deal with it. ...But that's my problem. They (my MIL especially) don't seem to make much effort to make him FEEL like he is as equal to their bio grandson (my stepson).
I know these things take time. I don't expect them to automatically love them the same (or ever really) but it is important DS1 feels just as loved as DS2 does.
MIL says she knows this and says she tries. ...but then she'll do things like call and as to speak to DS2 ...but not DS1. ...And she'll mention on FB that she is going to visit her grandson ...not her grandsonS! It's been over a year and i think that these little changes should already be part of their lives.
And when she visits she makes it clear that she wants to snuggle with DS2 ...but doesn't make the same effort for DS1.
I've talked to her about it. (continued).
