Were you so close to your mother or father?

I used to be close to my father when I was a kid but got even close to my mother when I was a teen. I noticed that many children tend to love their mom more because the father is always busy working. I have grown up to love my parents equally and appreciate their presence in my life. Which one of your parents were you so close to as a kid and why?

I guess I am closer to my mother since she is the one who takes me to school daily. I also see her more often compared to my father.

Good question. I'm very close to my mother since I am a kid until now. I don't feel comfortable with my father we are not that close. He doesn't talk to me a lot. He is just quiet. Can't remember happy memories with my father. I feel a gap with my father

@averygirl72 have you tried discussing the topic with your parents? It is not late since you can also start creating happy memories with your father. Father's often do not know how to express love to their kids but he loves you more than anything.

I am closer to my mom and my sister is closer to our dad. I love my parents, but yes there is always a favorite person in our lives.

When I was a kid, I`m more closer to my father even if he was busy with work but I can`t say that my mother is not. My mother may be busy too with work but she finds time to talk with me and helped me with my schooling, I`m a slow learner, I had a hard time with understanding school lessons and needed some attention at home, and my mother helped me a lot in coping with it.So, I guess, I`m close with both my parents in different ways but I`m more open to my mother when it comes to SECRETS
