    Briliant video,Fred.Saw this post yesterday on Reddit. Favorizing kids is a very dangerous thing. My question is how turn things if we already did that. We love them both equally its just that they think we don’t. Is there a way to make them all feel important..

      The absolute easiest thing to do is to hug them in groups (not just alone and one-at-a-time).

      Besides that, model that the marriage is the higher priority to the two of you…the system will get the message 🙂
