There is nothing unfair about what the father did

1) you cannot judge a father of favoritism by just 1 incident.
2) the older daughter asked and got the only snack. The younger daughter came later and asked for the same thing. What is a father to do?
3) Even God would not take something away from one person because of another's whining

I don't think you guys get this sketch. Just watch it again and pretend he is talking to Josephs brothers and to anyone who claims that they have been treated unjustly during their life.

We deserve a higher standard

In simply teaching children that life isn't fair we fail to teach them how to BE fair and caring persons. Our society becomes more fair as we PRACTICE fairness in our interactions. If we don't help model and teach fairness, everything else breaks down. No child will have the incentive to be sure the other person's bowl has enough if we don't teach, practice, and reward fairness in all we do. Even jungle animals do that much.

we should prepare our children for life, but we shouldn't give one child something and not the other because with siblings it's different. Even though it may not be so, it makes the child think their parents are picking favorites, since young children won't understand. Parents should treat their children equally.
