Parents of twins

We know several parents of twins and have noticed that some fathers favor one of them more than the other, does anyone else notice this?

Re: Parents of twins

i haven't personally noticed this. my twins are identical boys and their dad is very loving towards both of them.

Re: Parents of twins

Mine are fraternal twin girls and my husband loves them both very much. He does favor his son who is a year older than the girls but I know it's a guy thing. Maybe one of yours reminds him of himself and feels he needs to put that child under his wing so to speak....

Re: Parents of twins

I think most parents have a favorite child, whether it be a twin or single-birth child. However, I find not many are willing to admit it. And that's probably a good thing because I think a certain amount of guilt for feeling that way accompanies it.

I tend to see it more in Dads/daughters and Moms/sons instead of vice versa.
