A word of encouragement for parents of two kids
Do your children seem to fight nonstop and constantly accuse you of favoring their sibling? Well, congratulations. That means you are doing a fantastic job! My theory is that if both kids have the same complaint about the other, that means they’re both getting the same treatment, right? You’re welcome. Now, have a beer or a glass of wine and relax with your favorite Netflix series. You got this.
The same goes for families of three or more children. That is, if they are each pointing to a different sibling. Now, if you’re the parent of two or more children and all fingers are pointing toward the same child as being the favorite, golden child–well…you’re screwed. I don’t know how to help you feel better about that. I tried. No beer or wine for you. [I’m kidding, of course.]
