I have a friend that plays favorites SO much so among her children that even my husband (who can be clueless about those things lol) notices it. It is really disgusting. She has lots of kids, but only a couple of them get to do things that IMO all kids should be able to do. She really only seems to care very deeply about a couple. It really ain't right, but how do you tell someone that they are playing favorites? Surely she knows already! It just makes me sick but it seems like most of her kids just exist and then their are the couple of chosen.Answer Question

I have a friend who does this and sometimes it really makes me want to cry. My friend is just so mean to her oldest son and is always pawning him off on other family members and she spends the rest spoiling her son that she has with her husband. I have asked her if she thinks she treats them equal and she says of course I do. I just try to make sure I give the oldest a lot of compliments and love. He's 6 so he doesn't really like me hugging him all the time but I just want him to know that he is just as special as his brother. My friend rolls her eyes at me and sighs when I praise her oldest and it's truly disgusting. I think the key is not to criticize their parenting skills but quietly let them know that you notice the difference. If they want to change they will.

You really aren't giving details as what you think is her playing favorites. What do you mean exactly? What is she doing differently with the kids? What are the ages of these kids? Maybe some of them can't do the same things as the older kids? I don't know.
