Pay Attention to Playing Favorites


Your natural closeness with your daughter(s) can easily lead to favoritism, which breeds sibling rivalry. All kids are sensitive to favoritism, regardless of their sex or the sex of their siblings. Even when they push your buttons, try to handle all your children with fairness and care. Don't compare your children's grades, weight, sports performance, or anything that can be measured: it can be bad for sibling relations, and can be even worse for mother/daughter relations.
