Is it fair the older kid gets the bigger room? Ages 13&15
Answered 1 year ago
We are looking to move into a 3 bedroom trying to find a place with same size room for the young teens but older kid always wants to pick his room
Leaving the you get feeling like he doesn’t have a say. I feel age dif is not by much so to keep it fair best find a place it’s pretty equal. Wife feels her older kid should get Priority in choosing regardless since he is older. Yes my kid is the young one, we each have our kid from previous relationships. I hate my kid cries about feeling like he hardly ever has a say in a lot of things because we are always catering to older kids request.
Have an answer?
If you can't sort this out, mate, how will you cope with the tough stuff as a couple???
I think the issue here isn't the room, but the bigger picture of your wife always putting her own child first, to the detriment of your child. You need to advocate for your child. Find a fairer way of doing things. Your child mustn't be left to feel bottom of the importance ladder. I know what that feels like, to have parents who put you behind siblings because they're older or to 'keep the peace' with others. I still resent them for it.
Either way it’s such a petty situation especially when parents start playing tug of war in defense of their own kids, it’s ugly and not healthy! Good luck OP
