Wanted to know if other moms out there have been through this type of thing. My parents are the only active grandparents. I have three children, the oldest is my son who is 9 and from a previous relationship. I also have two girls with my husband of 7 years. This month was the kids birthdays and money was tight so everyone got a cake and a small gift from me. My parents bought only my son a gift and it was a tablet. They insist on only having him spend the night because they say "my girls have a father". My sister and her boyfriend can drop their two children off whenever they want and its never an issue. When my girls are there at their house they make comments about my 6 year old not being cute or pretty. My mom has actually in a heated argument with me said in front of my daughter that she doesn't love her. My 6 year old is also chubby she weighs 69lbs, to which my mom says "I can't look at her because of how she looks". I know its because they don't like my husband. As a result the kids are against one another. My son loves his grandparents but my daughter is hurt by them. If I keep the kids away I get accused of doing it because I'm being mean. Not sure what to do. This has been ongoing for the last two years and only getting worse. They only ever do for my son and it bothers me but they don't care.
