how do i deal with a mil who time and time again alienates my almost 4 year old son among 5 grandkids. she makes more than ample time for all the kids including my son's brother, my step son who lives with us. she schedules her week around our schedule with my step son. she flies up north to visit 2 other grandkids and flies them here at least once a month and babysits for another 1 1/2 year old grandson 2 days a week. ever since my son was young we would ask for babysitting help and there was always a reason why she couldn't help out yet she goes above and beyond for all the other grandkids. she most recently fly 2 of the other grandkids into town and is expecting us to change our plans to go to her house (30 mins away-not too far) and is now blaming us for not "wanting" our son to go to her house. i try to just avoid her and go about our lives as she always trys to corner me with questions about my husband. help how to deal with this irritating mil!!!!Answer Question

I'm sorry she is doing this to your son- i would have a nice little chat with her & tell her if she can not treat your son the exact same way she treats the rest of the grandchildren then she is not welcome in your family's life! There is No Way i would deal with that!
