Choosing between two parents is a hard task. Especially if you will be asked in front of them! The kids were asked who they love more between their their moms and dads and they had no choice but to tell the truth.
In a survey conducted by the team behind Jimmy Kimmel’s TV show, it revealed that most kids choose their mothers over their fathers. Are you surprised? No?
As mentioned above, most of the kids chose to be with their mothers than their fathers and some were actually quick to answer “mom” when asked “Who do you love more?” But there’s a boy who had second thoughts on who to pick too. He initially chose her mom but when asked again, he chose his dad!
Some children found it hard to pick any as well because of course, they love both their parents. But when one girl was questioned who to save in case there’s a zombie attack, the kid still chose her mother. There were those who picked their fathers too but the number is very small.
So, why do you think these kids chose their mothers more than their fathers? Is it because mom is always there while daddy is at work? Is it because mommy is always the sweet one while dad is the one more strict? I think this would be an interesting topic of research.
However, picking their moms doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t love their fathers. Though there was a kid who would trade his father for Spiderman, he doesn’t understand what that means given his young age. Overall, the survey still does not reflect that kids love their mothers more than their fathers.
Parents are the most important people in our lives as we were growing and it’s really difficult to choose one side. And why bother pick one when you can have both, right? The kids were definitely not prepared for that question, don’t you think?
