13 Hilarious Videos That Proclaim, “I Don’t Have A Favorite Child” (Even When They Do).

All Parents have a favorite child. This shows three "favorite children" in three frames, doing kid things.

Whether you have one child or a dozen, every parent has that “one” they know will be trouble. In a hilarious TikTok trend, parents have begun posting outrageously cute videos showing the escapades of their “problem child.” The hashtag on the trend begins with “I Don’t Have A Favorite Child.” We know that isn’t true. My daughter was an only child, and I had a favorite β€” it was her best friend! Although we laugh about it now, it was my favorite parental joke.

When we discovered this trend, we had to explore the hashtag and could not stop laughing. Kids are always precious, but when you catch them at their best. The entire hashtag is “I Don’t Have A Favorite Child, But When The Cops Show Up I’ll Know Who They’re Looking For.” That pretty much says it all! Enjoy this harvest festival season with some of our finds.
