I recently overheard a conversation between a mother and grandmother which boiled down to this, “The kids told me you’re their favorite Grandma — so I told them not to tell their other Grandma!”
I didn’t love this answer, but I realized I have no idea what a good reaction to this kind of situation would be. I don’t expect my kids to like all of their family members the same, but I don’t want them having secret “don’t tell her I like you the most!” talks.
Does anyone have a good diplomatic response when kids say one family member is their favorite? — Nicole
