I don't think parents ever love one child more than the other child. Parents love each child in a different way than the other one. Me and my older sister are just 16 months apart and I can tell that my parents love me and her in different ways. I'm more independent and do not need as much attention and she is more dependent on them. From an outside view it does seem like my parent choose my sister as their favorite, but it's not true they just love us in a different way.
I don't think your mother loves your younger brother or sister more than they love you. I think that they need more attention than you do. And if you ever want to do something with your mother, just ask! She'd love to do something with you!
Every mother does NOT love each child equally. There are many cases of moms abusing one child and not the others. There are cases of moms neglecting one child, locking them in a cage and testing them like dogs, but not the others. There is no reason. Maybe done sort of mental thing. I personally know s couple moms that do not love one of their kids. How go I know that, you may ask. Well they are very vocal about it and not ashamed at all. Lucky for them they don't lock their children up or abuse them because I'd be all over that and the police and social services would be involved.
Let me tell you...I was the youngest of 4. By the time I was born, till I left home at 13, I was told they did not want an unwanted pregnancy, and that's who I was. and every day I was confused about what I did wrong. it pretty much affected my life for 58 years.
Yes, it's true; parents love their kids in different ways and some need more attention from others. But favoritism of kids DOES happen with some parents. It's wrong but it happens. It's very wrong cause it makes the other kids jealous not to mention hurts them emotionally, it's damaging. When I have kids, I am never going to boast about one child in front of the others constantly like my mom does. My dad has verbally said before that I am his favorite, which made me upset cause that's not fair (plus my dad annoys me). I just don't get it, kids are all different, but I don't get how you could favor one. For those of you that say it doesn't happen, it does.

Speaking from experience of a full house. Mothers love their children completely, but individually. Everyone of them has a different personality and must be cared for as individuals. It often looks like one is favored over the other, but it's not true. I had the go-getter, the self-aware, the I'm lost in the middle, and the momma's boy. I had to deal with each one according to their needs, But I loved and love them all fiercely.
