What Happens to Kids When Parents Play Favorites?

The subject of parental favoritism has been trending lately, with a number of think pieces popping up over the last several months on the topic.While many parents are often quick to declare they don’t have a favorite, a number of kids — and adult siblings — may beg to differ.In fact, the effect parental favoritism can have on kids, whether real or perceived, is a topic that’s been of growing concern.

 

 

Research has found that the effect isn’t great, showing that children who perceive themselves as being the least favorite are more likely to do drugs and use alcohol and cigarettes in their teenage years.This is especially true when the family unit isn’t otherwise very close.And tension between siblings seems to increase when a favored child is in the mix.
