Well, I have two cats- which as far as I'm concerned, is exactly the same as having two children- and I hate them both equally. So, if I'm any kind of example, then no, I don't believe parents have favourites.
Which parents? Where? Some parents will, and do, undoubtedly. But not all parents do so. Should have had a conditional option.

Is it still technically secret if you go around advertising it to the public?
It depends on the parents.
when a parent choses a favorite it is because that child is either the most like them or, if their like my dad, they always wanted a son or daughter. my dad's favorite is my brother because he always wanted a son, and my mom's fav is my sister. but what about Grandparents, Aunt's, Uncle's, Godparents, Guardians. they have favs too.
Its obvious with my dad ....my dad like my bro better then me, and he's not to good at hiding it.
My father openly prefers my twin Nikolai and my other brothers Alexei and Vasily, because they are boys (: He never really wanted a girl. Parents simply cannot help but choose a favorite among their children :)
My mom's favorite child is my sister's kid.
Parents don't have favourites. They just prefer one child from another, but they love each one the same!
