    Could step dad be trying to compensate for being absent in their lives or something like that?

    You know how kids don't want a toy till someone else is playing with it? Adults can be like that too. Give your sister loads of attention and really rub your parents nose in it in a non obvious way. Go on about how you're loving the quality family time with her. Plant the seed let it grow .

    My whole life me and my sister never really got the same as my younger half Sibling...Financially , emotionally etc he got the overseas holidays, the free rent as an adult so he could save thousands etc and we werent really included in family stuff as much etc... It was just a fact if our lives ... It makes me feel really awful when i dwell on it cos there has been some really really unfair financial advantages ie were talking hundreds of thousands if dollars in recent times...it can make you feel quite bitter if you let it....i just had to let it slide as its a complicated situation over many years but it sucked , and deep down it still hurts Because it just feels so UNJUST. but there is nothing we could do ... All i know and what i learnt is that i will never ever treat my kids differently , it something deeply ingrained in me by my experiences. So i think i sorta share similiar feelings which i just choose to bury for the most part..its not nice but unfortunately i remind myself that sadly life is not fair.

    I suspect that is the case. And these 2 girls have beeb handed everything in life by their mother, they have never really had to work for anything. So I guess its only fitting that my step dad is doing exactly the same thing to them. In a way I pity them because if things ever turn to **** for them, they have absolutely no idea how to stand on their own 2 feet.

    I love that idea about subtly rubbing their nose in it
