Do You Have A Favorite Parent
When you ask someone if they have a favorite kid, the response usually is, "Oh, I love all of them the same." But what if you were asked if you have a favorite PARENT?
That might depend on what parent is with you at the time...
A new poll asked people just that and apparently more than half of us DO favor one parent over the other.
Around 4 in 10 said they like their mom more than their dad. Only 14% said Dad's their favorite.
But even more interesting is a lot of us switch allegiances. And not just once in our life.
We start out liking Mom more. Then a third of us go over to Dad's side by age 13. But that only lasts a few years, and a third switch back to Mom by age 20.
Also, 2 in 10 of men in the poll described themselves as a "mama's boy" . . . nearly the same ratio of women said they're a "daddy's girl."
And 13% of parents admit they're jealous, because they know they're not the favorite.
