Parents treating children equally

Q: Do only parents have the highest position and right to be respected and kids deserve no respect? If parents don't treat every child with equality by loving one child more and not caring for the others, is it ok in shariah?

A: Shariah has commanded that parents should show equal attention and love to each child.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
