Not purposely excluded so much as selectively offered...at least, that's how I think of it!

I have three dcfamilies and I have been doing a LOT to help two of them for awhile. These two have never taken advantage of me, talked down to me, left their kids late without calling/asking, etc. They both have different circumstances that make me feel really good about helping out, plus they appreciate me and tell me that frequently.

The third gets a lot less from me. They still leave their kids late and talk down to me sometimes, and put pressure on me for things that I don't appreciate being pressured (potty training their not ready daughter for one...). This one does NOT get the same amount of special from me.

And only one family have I ever offered to keep dcb overnight when they were in a bind!
