Both my & dh's family treat our oldest (7) better than our other kids. She was the 1st & only grandchild/niece on both sides for several yrs, so I think they all feel a special bond with her. A lot of them spend significantly more on her gifts vs our other 2 kids. They occasionally take her to do fun things, and not once have they even mentioned taking one of the younger two. The younger ones are only 1 1/2 & 2 1/2, but our 2 1/2 yo is starting to notice that she's constantly being left out and I feel so bad for her.
I doubt any of the family is doing it intentionally, but how do I gently bring it up?
