Parents…Do YOU Pick Favorites With Your Kids?
You may think that you have equal love for your children but according to a recent study of 1,000 parents, 23 percent say they have a favorite child, which is often the youngest child.
A quarter of parents say their oldest child is the favorite, while the middle child came in last.
64 percent of those in the study said they have no favorite.
Dr. Barbara Howard, a developmental-behavioral pediatrician says that paying favorites can hurt siblings who feel like they are fighting for attention often resulting in sibling rivalry or acting out.
Favoritism may be a harsh term for a child that may have a medical condition which requires more attention or children whose parents related to more because they share similar interests.
