Who A Child Should Love More Between The Father And The Mother

It has become a normal thing in most homes that the mother always gets the love of the children, because most of the time the mother is the person that the children can easily talk to

And it is sad that as much as the father makes most things in the house available the children always or never tend to love the father as much as they love their mother which must times gets to the father although some father do not show it to their family some others show it 

This then brings me to the question who should a child love most?

Is it the father who has gone to work to make sure the family has shelter and food at home?

Or is it the mother who takes care of the house and cater for the children's need when the father is at work trying to make ends need?

what is the reason for your answer?

  • Definitely his mother because she is the one he always see around him and she is the one who always be by his side but Even father can gain more Love from his child it depends on how he shows concern to his son

  • Your mother o, mothers are wonderful creatures, their love is indescribable, even if is thunder that strike where you are, the first she will think of you the child but not the other way round. They are always there even if you offend them. They noture you, take care of you infacts cry on your behalf, they are wondeful. Considering the facts that I am a man but I gave them kudos.

  • To me, both deserves the love of their children/kids, both are working very hard in their various departments to see to the well being of their kids, their is this ideology that runs through Africans mind that is suppose to be buried, non deserves more love, this can only come in where the other is misbehaving and have refused t take correction. My opinion though, thanks all

  • It is normal for a child to love the mother more because the mother spends time with the children than the father but I would say the love should not be one sided afterall the father tries his best in making sure the family is comfortable and we'll taken care of.

  • To me they are both to be loved equally.... They are both wonderful and amazing people.... But children tend to love mother more because they are always around to take care of them... And fathers are always busy making money for the family... But I think they should be loved equally because they deserve it

  • I think its the mother cause even if the father is providing financially for the child it is the mom that shows the child care, attention and teaches him good moral

    A child without a mom has a high tendency to engage in bad activities cause he didn't get enough love and attention which the father won't give much cause he's busy making money for the family

  • Every Child should love their parents equally. Each parent has his or her own role to play. Just that mothers are usually around the children. Also note that in most cases, the father contributes more than 80% of the family's welfare. Both should be loved equally.

  • As for me a child should love is parents equally but mothers are wonderful people who always have time for their children,wake up early to prepare food for the family,and still keeps the family together

  • This is not a question to debate on, a child should base his love for his parents equally and not one over the other. Mothers effort over a child is incomparable but the fathers effort should not be left behind even though fathers help may seems to be indirectly

  • Though the father caters for the family, but the pain, stress, concern and other difficulty passed through by the mother is more than that of the father.

    Therefore, the love for the mother should be more than that of the father

  • Please we shouldn't be encouraging this type of question. Why should a child be made to choose between the mother and father? Was it not both of them that came together to bring the child into this world? Both parents deserve to be loved equally by the children and likewise both should endeavour to love all their children equally. This matter should not even be debated. If there's no favouritism with God our Heavenly Father, then there musn't be favouritism in the home, or in society at large.

  • I think they should be loved equally because they have seperate contributions to a child's wellbeing even though the love a mother has for a child is unexplainable because she knows the pain she went through during childbirth.

  • In a family that is properly organize the children should not have to choose who to love more. Yes children tend to be close to their mothers but that is because of the setting of the household. 

    - Christian Utsu - 2019-09-25 18:36:50 Quote

  • Just as there shouldn't be favoiritism shown towards the children, there shouldn't also be favouritism shown towards parents. Both of them contribute to the development of a happy home, why then should one be loved more than the other?

  • Well I feel both the mother and father deserves the child's love,but the mother should receive more love because she bears more responsibility, the child's behavior and character depends on the mother

  • They should not choose whom they will love the most,  they are suppose to have equal love for each other,  and again that is why any time father does any thing for his kids in their absent,  the mother should tell them that there daddy did that thing for them

    Mothers should always tell the kids that there father loved them,  and he has been a caring father

    With this help I guess our kids will learn not to choose whom to love the most,  they will have equal love for there parents

  • Children learn how to love depending on the amount of time you spent with them, and 80% of children usually love their mum more than their dad because of love and care showed to them by their mum.

  • Irrespective of who stays with the child, it is often seen that the female children are closer to their fathers while the male ones to their mothers except cases of a broken home where the child is being raised by a single parent.

  • Parents are supposed to be loved equally. I know some would  say its the mother but its not so, they have their different roles to play remember God made them man and woman and His reasons are best known to Him. Now what if the wife whom the child loves more dies what would be the child's faith, I think they should be loved equally.

  • Loving both...most fathers do feel unloved whereas their effort is not much stated because its not really obvious... I really love NY father...because he is all I could ever imagine...we should let the love be equal...most fathers can't pour out their pain...they feel jealous as if they have done nothing!! Daddy I love you most

  • Both parents deserve love from their children. But in most families, the mother gets more love than the father because she is always the one with them , takes care of them and others. Most children spend most time with their mother than father, hereby showing her more love. The fathers are the one who go out to hustle so then can bring money. Most of them even travel afar for weeks or months so has to cater for the family.

  • The father's duty of providing for the family is something that is expected and not a big thing to the kids. But the love and care they get from the mother is deeply cherished by kids and so they would want to be closer to mommy

  • A child should love the mother and the father no matter what because the both cater and shower her with love. But in most home fathers are really rigid and strict like my home and when this happens the children tends to love their mother much more than their dad.

  • To my own view,  we should give the mother kudos .. She's the one that bear the pain of the baby from day one to its success. . Tho there are some father that are responsible than some mother.. But it's rear you see such cases.. But I will say we should give the mother 100% love...

  • I will suggest that the child should love the father and mother unconditionally. Just that the effects of mothers can not be over emphasised on children's. Loving them both will earn a child more blessings from the parent.

  • Life is not always equal, as for me I believe it depends on the character of each parent to their kids and how they show care and cater for the child needs is what makes the child love one than the other...

    There are some home where the children loves their father than the mother, all because the father show real love and full support to the children and also listen to the children always more than the mother do and vice versa, but no matter what they are both to be loved by the children because they both have their way of usefulness in the children life which can only be appreciated and reward with deep love and respect...

  • I am not an expert on this matter but I believe the child loves both parental units but not equally. The child is drawn to the parent that is more understanding, patient and who connects better with him or her in most cases is the Mom.

  • A child should love both his parents, even though his or her mother takes care of him or her, or his or her father does same, they both should be loved equally.

  • Is the mother because she is the one that the child starts up his social life with. The mother is always there to see the comfortability of the child. She always sacrificed even the little she has just to see the child through tough situations.

  • Most people that do not want to be stereotypical will say it should be the father, buy people tend to love the person that show them care not necessarily in monetary terms, but actual care which is unargueably the mother.

  • A child tends to love more his or her mother over his or her father because of the kind of time/space dedicated by an average mother than the father who is always out to look after the means of getting funds to finance his family as the breadwinner of such home.

  • A child should not love one more and the other less, but it obvious that most people choose who to love most among their parents.. Except for some obvious reasons, a child should love his/her parents equally

  • A child should not have to choose to love one person more than the other. Though It's common for a child to be more fond of one parent more than the other but it shouldn't be encouraged. That could lead to rivalry between the parents which would bounce back on the child.

  • The love is not a matter of who's bringing and not bringing money for the family. What should be considered is, who's closer, in the case of interaction, love and listening, that's what the children looks up to.

  • Haha it is written  on the wall it should definitely  be the mum, because she carried  them in her womb for 9 months, breast feed them up to a year, always with them in  hard or joyful times, in rainy or sunshine times, she is always with them. and that is why they always make her their friend. So it has to be the mother.

  • Both deserve to be loved, but as for me I can say it loudly that it should be mother, am not saying this because am a woman but for all that mother has gone through just for her children to be successful, they can sacrifice anything for their children even with the prensece of father, all mothers are just the best

  • A child should love the mother and father equally, even  though it is impossible because it is in human nature to like one person more than the other but the child should not make it obvious that he likes one more

  • Lemme say something, children are not like adults o, leave the fact that they are young. The don't worship material things like adults, as the father if you like buy heaven and earth, if you can't express your love for them they just see you like every other person in their lives.

  • Children should learn to love both parents equally. Honor your father and mother so your days may be long says the Holy Bible. Both father and mother play significant roles in the development of a child. So both of them should be loved equally

  • The mom spends most of her time taking care and catering for her kids needs whole the father is at work. That still doesn't mean the child can't love the father who works a lot, kids are mostly attracted to  the opposite gender parent, perfect example are no who care about about thier moms more than their dad and girls who enjoy spending time with their dad more than their moms. Doesn't matter if he is out making money, it's your contribution to the child's life that matters

  • It is an abnormal thing to love either parents more than the other because the value of each of them cannot be underrated. A mother is equally as important as a father. In as much as some fathers do not show it when a child loves his or her mother more than the father doesn't mean that it is normal. But because the child stays with the mother at home mostly when the father is out makes this happen in most homes. For me I think none should be loved more than the other.

    - Emmanuel Jacob - 2019-09-25 22:50:24 Quote

  • Who a child loves more shouldn't matter because both parent have important roles to play in the life of a child. Both provide emotional support to a child but the mother does it more so hence the child tends to love the mother more

  •  They are to love both but as humans their are always preferences and such a child now loves one over the other because of the benefits they can directly see. In most cases of the world, female children are often closer to their fathers because that's with whom they feel secure especially when they are at puberty while they male children are closer to their mother. Hence this is Simple  fact for most families but it changes with situations, so the children should love both.

  • There shouldn't be a specific amount of love a child should give his father or mother. I feel both should be appreciated equally. I mean they both worked you into life, lol. The love should be indefinite and equal to both.

  • Personally I'll say the child should love both the parents equally because it was a combin work before he or she was brought to this world forget about who is always around the child or not but as far as both the parents love the child then the child should also love both the parents equally

    - Ekerete John - 2019-09-26 03:42:59 Quote

  • It all depend, is true the is always home with the children but that is not the reason why children tend to love more but because of the mild way the mother always speah the children. The father always correct with rod and trying to instill discipline into the children which the children always seem as being hash.
