  • I truly believe that all normal well balanced moms love their kids equally , However there are many moms that aren't normal or well balanced And in thoses cases I don't think they see the truth because they are in their own lil world KWIM

  • I have a friend that told me once that she loved her odest daughter more than her other two because she was the first. You can tell too with her relationships with the other two they don't get along very well.
    I have three sons and I love them all three the same.

  • I have yet to find a way to quantify how much anyone is loved -- it's like 'what does purple smell like?' There isn't any 'much' involved, although we tend to talk about it as if it were a limited resource.

    I say that since no two people are alike, there is no way to love one person the way another is loved. Some people are easier to understand and even easier to get along with, but that (in my experience) has nothing to do with the quantity of love or the depth of affection felt.

    I think parents make a mistake when answering questions like that when they attempt to defend themselves against the child's observations. Generally, when a child says that, it's just that they feel left out or unloved, and has nothing to do with anyone else, even siblings. Siblings are an easy target for jealousy, not the source.

    The child is saying, 'I need love, now.' Heed that and ignore the competitiveness.
