Parent should always treat all of their children equally to avoid sibling rivalry.There are parents who does not care about the feelings of their children ad they always show that they love and always praise their favorite child.I know some parents like that and they do not know that they are making their other children so low and that is why some of their children is having a hard feelings at their parents.As a parent, they should know how to consider the feelings of their child.They should not always say or tell to the whole world that they have a favorite son or daughter.

Exactly. My parents don't have favorite and I'm glad they love us equally. I feel sorry for the children who are not favorites of their parents as can they can have low self-esteem and self-love. They might feel like they are always not enough and could result into looking for love from someone else or from something else/

parents should treat their children equally. having favorites cannot be avoided. but it should be discreet. it would be unfair to the other child. it would affect the child psychologically. the child would develop anger towards the parents and the favored child. this would affect the whole personality of the child.

Each child is a unique individuals. Parents must be sensitive to the child’s traits and treat him/her accordingly. One child maybe outgoing while the other prefers to be a homebody. Children are special and parents must understand and should be allowed to express their individual preferences. i had three kids (one girl and two boys), and I can say that they are equally loved. But I think our daughter is treated more than the two boys. It may affect them in the future but I think by simply explaining to them that shes the princess, maybe they will not turn it into a sibling rivalry later on. I think, a parent may have a favoritism to their kids.
