Favorite Child – Do You Have One?
Do you have a favorite child? If my daughter was writing this post she would swear I do – and it wouldn’t be her. Is it the truth? Absolutely not.
I love both of my children. A lot. I would do anything for them. Do I treat them differently. Absolutely. I have a 9 year old son and a 13 year old girl. They are different sexes and are in different phases of their life. One of them is in their teen years and becoming more and more independent by the second, while the other one is still in elementary school and wants me to stand outside the bathroom when he is in the shower.
One of them is easier than the other one (I will not mention which child is easier – in order to keep the peace). Does that mean I favor her or him, no. It means I have to take each situation and handle it according to the situation and the child. This often leads to why do you treat him/her differently? You like him/her more?
I love both of my children the same. I do treat them differently at times but again, not because I favor them but because they are different ages and one is a boy and one is a girl.
Do you treat your children differently depending on the circumstances??
