'Elephant in the Room' is a recurring segment where co-hosts Martine and Isabelle take on topics some people may be thinking about but not talking about.


Most parents will tell you they don't have a favourite child. 

But in one study, up to 74 per cent of parents admitted to researchers that they did indeed shower one child with more preferential treatment than the other. 

In this week's "Elephant in the Room", Martine explains why she's positive she wasn't the favourite child and how she used that to her advantage. Isabelle wrestles with the question and looks to her sons for answers.
