Your parents will probably deny it, but in most families there’s a favorite.

Researchers found that when it comes to spending money, most favor the child of the same sex.

When given the choice, most moms gifted their daughters a $25 treasury bond, while dads passed it down to their sons. Other experiments showed parents favored their same sex child when it came to estate planning and raffle gifts.

While the findings were specific to families, researchers say the bias could impact the workplace, with female bosses hiring more women and men being more likely to hire male employees. (PhilladelphiaCBSLocal)
