Growing up with siblings, you may or may not have
speculated whether your parents were secretly
comparing and ranking you against the others.
Parents are “not supposed to” have
favorites, but in a 2005 study, 74 percent
of mothers and 70 percent of fathers
admitted to having a favorite.
One TikTok dad is breaking this unspoken parent
code and explaining to the world how and why he’s
chosen his favorite and least favorite child.
“People go ‘Zach, you don’t have favorites
in your kids!’” the dad, who goes by @forrealb
on the platform, says at the beginning
of the video. “The f*** I don’t”.
Zach’s favorite child is his oldest because
she’s sensitive and responsible.
“She breaks an $8 lamp from Walmart, you would
have thought she shot me at point-blank range.
She’s shaking and crying and I’m like ‘Honey it’s
okay, you were chasing the dog. S*** happens”.
“My youngest, that little psychopath,
comes up to me butt-ass naked and goes,
‘Dad I pooped behind the couch,'” Zach
explains in the TikTok. “She’s a f***ing animal”.
“She’s your least favorite because she’s
the most like you,” one commenter replied.
for the most part, people thought the
clip was pretty funny and a reminder of
how overwhelming parenting can be.
“TikTok parents are the best birth
control,” someone else commented.
“Why is this so relatable,” another person wrote. “I
have favorite, I just don’t tell them that. Every parent
has a favorite and if you say you don’t, you’re lying”
