Wednesday: Is there a favorite child in your family?

9:00 At last week’s presidential debate college student Jeremy Epstein said: ” AIl hear from professors, neighbors and others is that when I graduate, I will have little chance to get employment. What can you say to reassure me, but more importantly my parents, that I will be able to sufficiently support myself after I graduate?”

We’ll get advice for new college grads.

10:00 Within 10 years, the number of people in the world over 60 will exceed 1 billion. But a new report from the United Nations Population Fund says that developing countries are not prepared to support so many seniors.

11:00 Do you have a favorite child? Did your parents prefer one sibling over the others? We’re going to have a discussion about favoring one child over the others. Is it inevitable?

    The segment on favorite child was troubling to me. So much that I had to turn it off. I just can’t see what good can come from a conversation like that. I just don’t understand why everything now has to be a competition. I love my kids all 9 of them, some biological most adopted. they will all at times drive me to distraction and at other times make me cry with pride and joy. I just can’t see putting them all on a graph and rating them. Do I always treat them fairly? Of course not. Just ask any one of them. Some are more sensitive some are more able and some can be down right mean sometimes…just like dad. I’m not a great dad but I’ll bet I’m in the middle of the pack so I’d hate to be rated. I don’t know if my mom or dad had a favorite and I don’t care because they gave me love and that was good enough. Both my sisters deserve that title anyway.

    I guess I think some things just don’t need to have a winner or loser.

    If I need a to see a champion I’ll watch America’s got Talent (which really got it wrong this year) or better yet Storage Wars.
