You’ve probably felt like your parents like your younger brother or sister more than they like you, even though they always SWEAR they love you both equally. Well, they’re lying. So congrats on being right, I guess?
According to a new study out of Brigham Young University in Utah, parents DO like their youngest child more. But the reason why is kind of strange.
It turns out the youngest kid BELIEVES their parents like them more, so they feel a stronger bond with their parents, which actually DOES make their parents like them more. So it’s a feedback loop that leaves the older kids screwed. Happy Holidays!
