Sibling fighting! I have two young boys less than two years apart who seem to do nothing but fight! The older one mimics the younger one when he's upset and is rough, the younger one (2.5yrs) purposefully does stuff to annoy his older brother etc. We have also caught the older one ganging up on his younger brother with cousins which was so disappointing! How do we encourage brotherly love and encourage them to care about and stick up for the other?
Help! My 3.5 year old has morphed into the devil child! He's always been strong willed but since having a second baby a month ago his behaviour is so bad I am afraid to take him out! He is yelling and arguing and crying and punching - I can't take him to the park for fear he will hit another child! He's very smart and very outgoing and I am just out of ideas! What can I do?
My toddler isn’t happy about the arrival of our second child. How do I prepare my child for the birth a new baby?
