If your mother in law made it obvious a certain kid was her favorite, which is SIL and bil 's daughter


Would you say something? What would you say?

 Yes it would. Playing favorites is BS.

No.  I've never understood being angry or hurt if a parent/grandparent seems to like one child over another.  Humans are humans, they get along with some people they don't get along with others. They enjoy the company of some people and they do not enjoy the company of others. Some situations make it easier to spend time/money or whatever on one kids/one set of kids over another. I've never expected my son's grandparents to feel/treat him exactly like they treat other grandkids. I would be impossible in our situation really, so I've never had an issue with anything that could seem like or be taken as one kid being shown preferential treatment over another.

It's because my kids notice and they don't understand that.
