Who loves the children better? Mother or Father?

In my experience, it is the mother. Mothers love is selfless and fathers selfish. Or it is the way around, mother loves the male child more and father loves the female child more.

i think both father and mother give children as much love as they can but in different ways. that's what children need. they can benefit from their parents' different love and grow up healthily.

Hello andyvish, it may be true that in general mothers love is selfish and fathers selfish. But I do know a few fathers who love their children selflessly. And also mothers that dont show any affection to their children.

I agree with you. Mother has a biologiclly thick relation to the child. As if it is a natural obligation of the mother. The father may love his son as deep as the mother, but still mother is more intimate to the child. This suits especialy while the child was too young. This intimacy continues till the end. There could be a lot of exeptions. But this is the general trend.
