Different Approach

It is impolite to complain and make observations about the behavior of others. Your brother has the right to invite whomever he wishes to his parties. Perhaps you might try initiating a conversation with him letting him know you and your children miss seeing his family.

You could invite them to your house first to show him your hospitality. But do not expect him to change because you wish it to be so. My overall suggestion is that you accept him the way he is and make an effort to have family gatherings yourself to which he and his family are invited.

Good luck,

Ms Practical Etiquette
