In families of 2 or more children, favoritism is rampant. In such families, parents oftentimes favor a child or some children over other children. Even though parents deny that favoritism occur, children SEE it. In multichild households, favoritism is normative. What is your solution for eradicating favoritism in families? Is the idea of eradicating favoritism unrealistic at best & fantastical at worst? Your thoughts? Is favoritism a normal part of multichild family life?
No. It is not a normal part of mutichild family life. My parents never practiced it, and neither did I. Yes, some children are more challenging than others, but they don't have to feel less loved or favored.
But when a child does experience this in his/her family, it is real and it hurts. I'd recommend a book, "The Gift of the Blessing." It's about how you deal with this situation when you don't receive the blessings God intended you to receive from your family and how you make sure you bless your own children in spite of what you suffered.
You are one of the LUCKY ONES. In typical multichild families, children experience favoritism. It is a natural occurrence in multichildl families. The only families who don't experience favoritism are 1-child families. In families of 2 & more children, favoritism abounds.
