How can one convince a family member that one is not discriminating against them, based on their adoption?

    Unless you make a habit of discriminating against family members who don't share your DNA (all of your in-laws), there isn't a reason for someone to think having been adopted into the family would be any different - do you have a family member who believes this?

    Try to treat them equally. Try things like a chore wheel for a week(They sell them at the dollar store, but you can make them with construction paper, cardboard, and arrows, and craft studs and markers.), or make a rewards/punishment program in your house , based on behavior, so on the weekends or when you want to dote on them you can. So they can see it is not based on them being adoptive.

    Treat them the same. Spend the same on holiday gifts for them as for others in the family. Send cards for their birthday. Don't reference their adoption.

    Treat them exactly the same way you treat every other family member.  You don't convince someone they're equal with words.
