Parent favoring one child could impact whole family, study says
February 12, 2013 (WLS) -- The number of babies born to teen mothers in the United States dropped to record lows in 2011.
A University of Toronto study reveals a parent's preference for one child, especially when it's obvious, can negatively affect the entire family.
Children who are in a place of disadvantage can become more aggressive, disobedient and emotionally unstable over time.
However, the more drastic the parenting styles between siblings, the more it negatively affects the mental health of all the children.
