Does anyone have a "favorite" child? One that you cater to more than the other?

  • No...I love and cater to mine equally, but differently.

    My mom played favorites and it was really upsetting. Always said I wouldn't do that and haven't so far. It's tough sometimes when one is being especially challenging (my 5yo daughter these days), but I don't.

  • No. I have one that I feel 'closer' to, like there is some invisible bond there and we understand each other better, but I don't feel like I love him more than my other children.

  • With 5 kids it depends on the day and who is getting on my nerves and who does what they can to help. I love Reba's line from her show. Have I told you you're my favorite? She has said this to each of her kids at different times.

  • I love my boys equally just differently. I also cater to them equally but in different ways. I don't favor one more or give one any more time or material things than I do the other.

  • I don't have a favorite... but i can tell that some of their grandparents do, which is really bothersome at times.

  • Nope. I have 5. I love them equally, but in different ways because they are different people.
