My family picks and chooses favorites with my children. I hate that! They even accuse me of picking favorites. I love each and every one of my kids the same. I do not favor one child over the other. But I have certain family members that will call and ask if one of my kids can spend the night, each one that has chosen a fav ONLY wants that one to spend the night. My mom and grandmother favors my oldest, she is the only girl. I have had to enforce a rule, If you want her to spend the night you have to give the boys a chance to. Because they notice they only want her and it hurts their feelings. Do you have a similar story? BUMP if you have a fav or if someone in your family has a fav...Answer Question

Oh yes, there are always favorites. My GPs had them, my parents have them. Many parents likely have them too.

having favorites is natural.... you will naturally gravitate towards a particular personality and feel more comfortable with that personality... but the sign of a TRUE adult is that the adult NEVER shows it. Your relatives are being rude.
One of my kids likes the same kind of music I do and I MUCH rather listen to music with that child than the others, A different child likes the kinds of movies I do I much rather watch movies with her (and the one whose music I like - I HATE his movies), the last child is much more fun to play pretend with. Naturally you gravitate to wards different aspects of their personalities... but I dont let the kids know!
I dont love one of my kids more.... I love them differently
