There is a Husband and wife and 2 children 1 boy age 3 and 1 girl age 5. The husband entered the marriage with his daughter age 5 (from a different relationship). The 3 year old little boy belongs to both the husband and wife who have been married for 4 1/2 years.
Now here is the issue:
The Paternal grandmother often plays favorite between the kids. She treats the 5 year old so much better and is more of a grandmother to the 5 year old than the 3 year old and both children are her biological grandchildren from her one and only child.
The father had a emtional argument with his mother once before in the past because of the same situation were it lead to the kids not seeing there grandmother for a few months.
The father have had private talks with his mother to discuss the issues.
The paternal grandmother has stated once before that the 5 year old needs more love and attention because the little girl doesnt have both her mother and father in the same household raising her like the 3 year old does.
The parents of the little girl both share 50/50 and the little girls spends time with each parent every 2 1/2 days. Both of the Bio parents get along for the most part and parent together even though they are not together. She loved all over from her parents and both her stepparents all 4 adults are pretty cool may have issues here and there but nothing to damage any relationships between the familes. The little girl is doing well no unusally issues that she is having. She's a typical 5 year old happy, playful, healthy, smart, loving etc.
The last incident happend with playing favorite that the little boy didnt even want to stay with his grandma and both the husband and wife saw what had happened. Grandma gave long hugs and kisses to the little girl as if she havnt seen her in years and gave the little boy a basic simple hug. So the father asked his mother "arent you glad to see both the kids" and grandma pretended as if she didnt see or understand anything wrong so the father got really upset and told his mother that if she cant treat his kids the same and show both them love that she would not be allowed to be a grandparent to either of his kids and he told his daughter to get her jacket because they were leaving. Grandma yelled back telling him to go and that he cant tell her how to be a grandparent to her grandkids...
Was dad wrong for standing up to his mom regarding playing favorites to his kids?
How can grandma just pick which grandchild she wants to be grandma to and leave the other one out right in front of the child face
Have anyone of you ladies experience this between your children from grandparents or different family members?
