Whether we like to admit it or not, everyone plays favorites. This goes for all aspects of life – even parenthood.

According to a new British survey, one in 12 parents admit to having a favorite child.

On top of that, 62 percent said that they did not give their children equal attention.

The most common reason parents gave one child special attention was due to having a “stronger bond” with that kid. Another reason was because the other children behaved worse.
