Part 2. Sister Quotes That Are…
I don't want all the anger and bewilderment of my early life to return in this way. How can I get over this and move forward? And is there anything I can do to improve matters? L, Manchester.

I'm afraid some people are just not self-aware. The obvious thing to do is to sit down with your parents and have a proper dialogue with them about it. But it's the hardest thing to do, isn't it? First, there is no guarantee that they will accept what you say, least of all change. And then I fear you will be even more hurt. But part of me really wants you to do this: to stand up and be counted. Has anyone else noticed or commented on the favouritism?
Your husband? Your children beyond the comment you mentioned? How do your siblings feel about it? The comfort to be got here is that the favouritism, if it is indeed noticed by your children, won't sting nearly as much as it did and does you — they have you to buffer them.

And favourites can change, too, as the parents age. She wonders what relations are like with your in-laws. Perhaps you could concentrate on them? You don't mention your children's ages. I asked Judd if you should be honest with them if they ask direct questions or started to think it was their fault.
She suggests honesty if they are older children. All you need is love… and a sister.
