Yes, totally. DH treats his daughter differently than he does our son and my daughter. His logic isn't biology though, it's because she doesn't "live" with us, therefore, she doesn't need to abide by the same rules.
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

This was a very huge fear of mine when I was pregnant. Sometimes my husband will do something, or say something... that brings this fear back. Whether it's me reading into something he's saying, or I'm misinterpreting it, or if there really is implication in what he is saying... Though, there's no obvious difference.
There is one thing that screams this to me... but it's not something I'll get into here.
My husband has never done this. He has always made the kids all abide by the same rules.
If anything it's me who treats my stepson differently (more lenient) because he doesn't live here and we only see him 3 or 4 times a year. I hate to say I'm a "Disneyland" stepparent, but I kinda am a little bit. What he wants to do, watch, eat, etc... is taken more into consideration cause he's visiting.
This is not an issue for us. I think I'm guilty of it more than he is. I think I show Daniel preference over his brothers, but it's not like just because they live here, they suddenly become children of my loins, kwim?
My BF does seem to treat Olivia and Meyson differently, but I'm not sure if it's because Meyson is a boy and older or if it's because his parents don't live in the same household and he's trying to make up for that. Like he will make time to do something with just Meyson and him, but doesn't do that as much with Olivia.
