Does Every Parent Have a Favorite Child?

Does Every Parent Have a Favorite Child?

by

I think what I object to the most is not the idea that parents might prefer a child, but the choice of the word favorite and the implication that the other child(ren) isn’t liked. In families that are not as large as mine this sets up a favorite/not favorite, a liked/unliked dynamic. In life we get along with some people better, that doesn’t mean we don’t like everyone else.
