I feel like my sister doesn't treat my oldest newphew the same as the others: Advice?

I just need to rant/get advice. My sister has three kids. She treats her oldest like complete garbage. I went Christmas shopping with her today for her kids, and the entire time, she was saying how she only had so much money, and her oldest barely had any gifts at home, but her youngest 2 had so many. SHE KEPT BUYING THINGS FOR THE YOUNGEST TWO. My nephew is literally only going to have a few things whilst his siblings are opening multiple things at a time. Am I wrong for feeling this way? She has always played favorites, and he has always gotten the crappy end of the stick. What should I do?

Buy him some presents so he knows he’s loved. He probably can already tell how she feels unfortunately.

Straight up tell her she’s acting like a shitty mom. Because she is.

Wow that so sad. How about you get him an extra gift of you can. So he feels special.

Buy him gifts and the others just a couple. If she questions it say well someone has to mother this child correctly smh … poor kid :frowning:

It depends on how old they are. My older teens don’t get as many gifts because theirs are more expensive.

I usually would buy more gifts for the child that has less.

That sucks I know how that feels buy him a couple extra gifts or buy him a gift card. Because I have experienced this I count all the gifts I get my children to make sure its equal amount

I’m sorry but me being an aunt & I seen my sibling treating my nephew/niece that way, I would speak up. Right is right & wrong is wrong. On the other hand, if you’re able, buy him the things he need. I’m sure he’ll appreciate you so much.

My mom was like this. We no longer talk. Last I heard she had cancer and I have no desire to reach out to her. It was more than stuff like this. Eventually he is going to hit his limit and she is going to act like the victim. Just be there for him.

Call her out. That is wrong. Maybe she needs to hear that someone notices.
