Treat each child uniquely, rather than equally. Give (time, skills, actual material goods) based on need. Don't give every child extra reassurance if only one child needs it, (for example, when a parent leaves). Giving based on need reduces jealousy, while giving uniformly can create jealously. Treating each child uniquely enhances self-esteem as well as reducing competition.
