My son's Donny and Jordan are below... how can I decide!!
A new study says that a large proportion of parents really do have a favorite child! Sorry older sisters DeeDee and Karen... it's youngest... and that's me!
More than one half of parents polled admitted to liking their youngest the most, while 26 per cent favored the oldest... sorry DeDe!
Also, the report says nearly a quarter of mothers and fathers admitted to preferring one of their children over the other. Grandparents are most bias... 42 per cent of grandparents said they absolutly have a favorite grandchild.
The anonymous survey saw 1,185 Mumsnet users and 1,111 Gransnet users being asked to share their honest opinions towards their children.
More than half of these respondents admitted to liking their youngest the most, while 26 per cent favoured the oldest.
AND THIS: 13 per cent said they believed their children knew about their preference.
