Do Your Parent(s) have a Favorite?

Mwar Mwar
Do you suspect it? I know my Mom favors my older brother, but I know it isn't intentional, so I don't feel bad about it.

What about you?

My mother favors my brother, the oldest and the only boy. It's been obvious for many years.

I'm my dad's favorite, but my mom favors my younger brother as he's the only son (same reason as bballard3's mom).

I feel like I'm favored by my parents, but I feel bad for it because it often leads my little sister to resent me quite a bit.

I think I am the favorite since my mom & step-dad do so much for more me than they do for my older sister. Even though I am married my step-dad pay for my cell phone and he switched the unlimited texting from my mom's phone to mine.

Now with my Dad & step-mom I think my older sister is the favorite. Since my dad is always around her. I honestly think that my Dad does not give a shit about me.

When the chips are down I can ALWAYS count on my step-dad I can never count on my dad. I am glad I am my mom & step-dad's favorite rather than my dad & step-mom's favorite. So it works out for the best.

my little sister was always favored by my single parent mother.she got whatever she wanted ,was the "pretty", and supposedly the one that would turn out better.from being raised like this it made me more aware that i will never do that to my kids and even though my kids are 12 years apart i try to explain to my older son that the youngest requires more attention becuz he cant do stuff and im grateful that he can!

I suspect my mom favors me, and my dad favors my brother.....I could be wrong though. They could both favor my brother.

They try not to, but I can definitely tell that they tend to favor one over the other sometimes. it all depends on the situation tho

We're going back to the 50s and 60s here - and my brother always swore that I was 'the favorite' - but truth be known I believe it was our younger sister. As the baby and only girl - she definitely got some preferential breaks.

I have 2 siblings, my mom tries her hardest to treat us all the same and love us all the same. But her and I are the closest and my siblings probably think I'm her favorite.

I don't know that my parents have a favorite, per se, but I know they are grateful for me. From a very early age, I was independent, respectful, well-behaved, quiet, ambitious, etc. and continue to be that way today. My younger sister and brother, though, are two very capable people who have ZERO respect for themselves and especially my parents; they continue to be a PITA who won't leave home. We're all in our 20s.

With this in mind, my parents freely care for them like they're still kids, dote on them, give them money, don't punish them for wrongdoing.

Brings to mind what "favorite" really entails.

I was an only child, until my parents divorced and both remarried. I got some step siblings, then.

I find it odd and a bit telling of the OP's perceived situation that she didn't include "No, they don't" as one of the answers. Hmmm.

Parents usually try very hard not to have favorites. It is impossible to treat every child in a family "exactly the same." Often more is expected from some kids, and everyone has strengths and weaknesses.

IMO, parents should strive to not have "favorites."

I also see so many people who always think someone else is the favorite, and not being parents themselves can't see the entire parenting picture. When I was a kid not a single one of anyone I knew claimed they were the favorite, but neither did any of their siblings. It was a big finger pointing exercise, "Mommy loves YOU more! You're spoiled and get everything you want!" While the sibling was saying the same thing to the speaker. I think in decent people, having true "favorites" and making it clear who that person is is rarely the case. Although, in the immaturity of youth, too many people assume it is so.

I don't think that it's really a matter of favoring, with my parents..just, it's a question of who they get along with better. In my case, my parents both get along much better with me than they do with my siblings.

I think they favor me because I'm the youngest, but my brother and I are 12 years apart so I don't have any idea how he was treated as a child. He says I always got away with more than he could.

everyone has a favorite ..... whether that is a favorite kid, or a favorite drink. its just a fact of life. I know my parents have a favorite, I just dont know or care who it is.
