You May Be Surprised to Learn Just How Many Parents Have a Favorite Child

We all have favorites: favorite food, favorite color, favorite band. But a favorite child?

A new British survey of more than 1,200 parents has found that one in 12 admit to having a favorite child and that 62% confess to failing to give equal attention to their kids, which is a surprisingly high number if you’re not Octomom.

About 8% say they treated one of their kids differently because they were their favorite, while more than 25% of those who copped to having a favorite claimed it was an older child who they could do “more things” with, as opposed to their younger ones.

If parents actually can admit they play favorites, the question is why? Forty-two percent said there’s just a “stronger bond,” while 13% said their other kids do not behave as well, which should mean Lindsay Lohan is way down in the pecking order when it comes to her siblings.
