Does your child prefer when one parent makes the dinner or organises bed time?

Aoife Lee from Parent Support recently asked her Instagram followers if any of their children preferred one adult over the other when it came to doing things for them.

An astounding 89% said yes.

For many families this leaves one parent feeling exhausted and guilty for being the preferred parent, and the other feeling left out and rejected.

In a Mind Yourself Now special, Aoife joined Dermot and Dave to explain why children might choose between parents and what you can do about it.
