Canadian radio host Buzz Bishop created a stir when he admitted to having a favorite child on his blog.
"If I were to be absolutely honest, my older son is my favorite of the two," he wrote in a post about his girlfriend's pregnancy. "He and I are adventurous partners in crime, and I can't imagine life without him. He was an accident waiting to happen, and I'm so glad it did."
Should he be criticized for voicing his favoritism? Is it possible for any parent to be completely impartial? And what's the science behind favoritism?
Jeffrey Kluger, senior editor at Time magazine and author "The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds Among Brothers and Sisters Reveal About Us," will join The Daily Circuit Wednesday.
"There aren't a lot of ironclad rules of family life, but here's one: No matter how much your parents deny it -- and here's betting they deny it a lot -- they have a favorite child," Kluger wrote. "And if you're a parent, so do you."
Ellen Weber Libby, licensed psychologist based in Washington, DC and author of the 'The Favorite Child,' will also join the discussion.
