Do you have a favorite child?

I have two daughters and had pupils by the thousands. I liked many of my students, sort of admired them for their cunning and resourcefulness. Many are gifted academically, many still are blessed with that intelligence called common sense. Amongst my colleagues, almost all confessed to having a favorite. I don't have one though. I like each child the way he or she is. One child may give me a difficult time but that child is still the true person that he is to me. My daughter told me though that she tends to have a favorite child. She feels that she is more affectionate to one of her littlest cousins than the others. I was surprised of course. Have you a favorite child?

I have 8 favorite children, i love them all the same, and i love the fact that they are all different, and they are all my favorites for different reasons.

Among niece and nephews, yep i have favourites, but i try to treat them equally, but must admit , i have some favourites.. But i have my 2 kids(boys) and among them, both are equal to me, atleast till now... .But i believe its quite normal, to have one more near than the other, as all kids are not same, some are more affectinate, obeys us, and we may at some point of time favour one over other... Isin't it??? Atleast from the generations above; i have always seen this to happen...

You are absolutely correct on that point. I tend to sympathize though with the more difficult child.

I'm nut married yet. but my two older sisters are already married and has children. Two of my older sister's children are my most favorite among my niece and nephews. why? Because my sister and I are much closer than our older sister and also the kids are so sweet and respect me.=p I miss them badly. I wish I could cuddle them just like before....

Children are blessings in all types. Each have that special light that brings us a smile, compassion, laughter, and joy just being around them. I do not have a favorite child, they all are special each. I have three wonderful daughters, they all are different in the way they are and I love each of them for that. Gives mom a different way of looking at life through three different younger eyes.
