A new survey is out plastering parents who have a favorite child and showing how it is harmful to a happy family life.
The study concluded that, “when siblings in families were parented very differently, all children in those families showed more mental health problems.”
In September, I became (in)famous for publicly declaring that I had a favorite child. I fielded emails from Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper, and Good Morning America. My blog post was discussed on HuffPo, The Globe and Mail, Fox and Friends, and even publications in the UK, and Australia. Toss in the run of the mill Mommy blogging set adding their opinion to the pile, and it was a wild 10 days.
And here we go again.
ABC has dug up the Good Morning America footage of me and my family to add to their story on the study and so, once again, my decision to declare I have a favorite child will be judged.
But it’s not what you think. Let me explain.
