Paying attention towards one’s children

Q: I would like my husband to pay more attention to his kids than his nieces. He treats them better than his own kids and I feel as if we cannot do anything as a family as they are with us every where. Sometimes I would like to do things as a family but this hardly ever happens.
Their parents hardly bother with our kids so it upsets me when my husband treats their daughters as our own, but he does not see this and wants them including in every aspect of our life. Many times he has left our kids at home and taken their daughters instead which really annoys me. Please is there any dua I can read which will make him pay attention to his kids and distance himself from nieces. I do not mean this in a horrible way but I would like us to do things as a family for once.


A: Recite the attached dua after your five daily Salaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
