For me, the answer is yes it is wrong to favor one child over another but hasn’t this been an age-old thing for some, remember the story of Cain and Abel? Let’s not lose sight though that children are different and we love them in different ways. Won’t you always have a special bond with your firstborn? You don’t respond to a teenager the same way that you do to a toddler. You love each child for who they are. They are individuals with different needs and those needs are hopefully met by us as parents. Don’t get too paranoid though that you don’t show your children your feelings. Kids are good at making us feel guilty about favorites. I still tell my Mum that my brother is the blue-eyed boy and can do no wrong and I am 45. You need to reassure your kids that they are loved especially for who they are. You should spend one on one time with all your kids as much as you can.
Maybe there are “too many” rules. First of all, decide what the rules are and stick to them, then it will easier to pick your battles. Hearing “no” all day can be rather overwhelming. If your son is getting into things that are dangerous, then say Stop, danger, instead of no. If he constantly heads for the off-limit objects then remove him from the situation and put him in another place for a minute, like time –out. Explain why you did this, as always consistency is key. Regarding the meltdowns over the sippy cup, ignore him, he is getting your attention so he keeps doing it. You and your husband should be a united front and using the same techniques with your son.
