The Favorite Child

Author says there's always one in every family

Your parents may never admit it, but every mother and father has a "favorite" child according to psychologist, Dr. Ellen Weber Libby.

Whether the favoritism lasts a moment or indefinitely, it has a long-term effect not only on the "favorite" child, but the not so favored child(ren).

In this half-hour, Dr. Weber Libby discusses her book: The Favorite Child revealing advantages and repercussions of children deemed the favorite, while using prominent public figures as examples (former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush).
