Dad: It's okay to have a favorite child!

NEED TO KNOW
  • Buzz Bishop says he loves his boys the same but likes his older son better
  • Is it okay for a parent to admit they have a favorite?

You might secretly have a favorite child, but would you be willing to admit it? Or even blast it all over the internet?

Daddy blogger Buzz Bishop is catching a lot of heat for doing just that! He has two boys -- a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old -- and he says his 5-year-old is way more fun.

In a post for the parenting website Babble.com, he wrote: "If I were to be absolutely honest, my older son is my favorite of the two. He and I are adventurous partners in crime and I can't imagine life without him."
