I raised my granddaughter from a baby and I have a son if I leave house to both does my son have more say so than her?

I raised my granddaughter from a baby. I have a son. Upon my death, if I leave house to both of them, does my son have say so over her whether to sell or keep the house ???

ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:

If you leave it to them equally, he doesn’t legally have more of a say that your granddaughter. However, is she is a minor, he can control the asset as her guardian.
