I have a son and a daughter, sometime can you feel than you are loving only the son more than the daugther or maybe the daughter more than the son.

I dont think we can love one over the other. As a parent, we should always love our kids equally. Our child can notice instantly once you give special treatment to one of your daughter or son. Jealousy of kid always result to family problem, member gap and so on..

It is impossible to love our children equally, may be because of their personally, or maybe its the children or maybe mother are just being over protective with their children.

I dont love one child more then they other. I dont think i could. Each child is a different person, with different personalities and skills. I really dont think i could love one more over the other. Gender aside.

Its difficult to admit this in real live. But I have come across this a mother who love this son more than any other person in the house. He will only listened to the son wellbeing, but when come to the daughter he will just take things for granted. I don't inderstand

well i think its not about loving someone more or less.bt its about giving time....i mean it's generally seen that the younger one gets all the attention frm the mother...and we start thinking that we love only one child..bt its just the matter of time...otherwise love is for both...

I have a 11yr old daughter who moans and gives me looks that I love my 10yr old son more. This makes me wild! The truth of the matter is my son has a very outgoing personality where he constantly involves me in many of his interests. Whilst my daughter is more into reading and watching telly. Hence, I am more active in my sons life than my daughters, that is true. I don't love 1 more than the other its more about interaction. My son is sporty where I can participate and when I try to get my daughter involved in the same or anything else she claims her legs are too sore or shes busy with her latest book etc. Typically, when I buy something special just for her, she thanks me and is happy. When I buy my son something she asks why just him and gives me the look. Talk about selective memory! I have tried to talk to her about the issue, give reassurances and point out the facts of the matter but honestly, its not what she wants to hear. I believe my daughter has a self-involved and somewhat negative personality that favours feeling this way. The selective memory she practises regarding all my actions towards each of them helps to foster the notion. Whilst some parents may favour one child over another I know this is not the case for me, though the child certainly thinks so.
