I worry my kids will think I have a favorite. One is constantly in trouble, you must yell to even get him to look at you, then he does the opposite and laughs cause he thinks it is funny. I don't know how to make him behave. Then there is the other. The biggest trouble is when she leaves a puddle of drool on your leg when she falls asleep on your lap. She follows instructions easily. My wife says I have a favorite. I don't... but I bet my son thinks I do. I love him. I tell him all the time. I don't want him to feel the way I felt. To this day I know I was the unwanted family member. I love him, I just spend most of my time trying to stop him from causing a scene or breaking something or hurting someone. That necessitates yelling and punishment. I just don't take him out enough. Maybe girls are just more calm by nature?
