I am the only one child in my family, so I can't see this difference very much. But it seems it's true that mom loves son much more and dad loves daughter much more.

When I was a little girl, I houe there was only one child in my home ,so I could get all mother's love. As I grow up, I find the love from my older brother is also happiness:)

Hi sprout, It is true that mom love son and dad love daughter. It is universal. I have seen this any many families. Good Luck.

In my family, both parents love the daughters more, so I'm not really sure if it's universal. My dad formally announced it in my sister's wedding the she is the apple of his eye, so that confirms the obvious. My mom argues with my brothers everyday. She never neglects them but she always gets mad at them for every petty little thing. Well, they do deserve being mad at because they are already way over the age that they could already fend for themselves, and yet still, they cling on to our parents. I guess that's why the parents like the daughters more because they are more independent, even though they are all younger than the boys.

i would say a mother loves her children more than faher ever could since they came from within her. Fahters will always identify better with sons then daughters since they are both men and will have similar experences that a father can share with his son as he grows up that he never could with his daughter.

Well even I think its universal as I have seen this almost everywhere myself. I think it has to do with opposites attract case.
