Play Favorites With Your Kids? 6 Tips to Help Keep It Even!

Parents are human. It’s natural to feel drawn to different personalities – this includes our kids. Although we may feel closer to one child, it can be damaging if it’s obvious that one child is favored. Here are six tips to help!

  • Appreciate strengths of each child and tell them how special they are to you. 
  • Be consistent with rules and consequences for all kids. 
  • Try to spend one-on-one time with each child. 
  • Show the same amount of physical affection to each child. 
  • Avoid comparing kids, especially in front of them. 
  • Each child is a unique gift and a person to learn from.
