Do You Have a Favorite Parent? More Than Half of People Say Yes, They Do

Brad Garrett and Ray Romano Host Gala Fundraiser - Arrivals

When you ask someone if they have a favorite kid, the classic line is, "Oh, I love all of them the same." But here's a new one . . .

A new poll in the U.K. asked people if they have a favorite PARENT. And apparently more than half of us DO favor one parent over the other.

Around 40% said they like their mom more than their dad. Only 14% said Dad's their favorite.

This part's also interesting: The survey found a lot of us switch allegiances. And not just once, but TWICE in our life.

We start out liking Mom more. Then a third of us go over to Dad's side by age 13. But that only lasts a few years, and a third switch back to Mom by age 20.

Also, 21% of men in the poll described themselves as a "mama's boy" . . . 22% of women said they're a "daddy's girl."

And 13% of parents admit they're jealous, because they know they're not the favorite.
