  • It is unfair. But I know mom's who do this. One in particular outright told me she loves her daughter just a tiny bit more. She said there's just something special about her. I was floored!!

  • that is a horrible thing to say about your children. But I guess it is how some ppl are about their kids.

  • So unfair. I have friends who had 2 girls and one boy. The girls were made a huge deal of and the boy was not. The girls went to college and the boy did not. Parents didn't care if he did or not. Very sad.

  • I don't think so. Things should be celebrated equally.
