Parents routinely compare one child to another, particularly in multichild families. Even if there are not multiple children in the family, a child is often compared to a nonrelated child or another relative. Parents believe that comparing one child to another makes the former change his/her ways and to be more confident; in fact, it does quite the opposite.

That is so true. There are so many misguided parents out there. They believe that by comparing their child to other children that they are boosting their child; in fact, they are damaging their child beyond repair.
You're welcome. I , too, am about to write a hub on this very topic.
