Articles:Reducing Jealousy Between Siblings
Name: Editor
Are your kids jealous of each other? Do they get into fights all the time? What active measures have you taken to reduce this?

Children learn what they live. Your older child will be watching as you handle the baby and learning from your actions.Whenever you see the older kid doing something commendable or playing with his sibling, you must encourage him by making a positive comment and also by praising him. Be supportive of the elder sibling. When a kid knows that you understand his feelings, then he will have less need to act up to get your attention. Increase your little demonstrations of love for your child. Avoid comparing siblings, even about seemingly innocent topics

Ever since my elder son had a sibling, he has been jealous of his small sister. He always disturbs her and makes sure that she cries. He also irritates her a lot. when I scold him, he gets angry. I do not know how to deal with this. I sometimes try to ignore him and sometimes love him more so that he does not feel less loved but still this is not helping. If i praise the younger one for something, then all the hell breaks loose. Please advice.

This type of behaviour is quite normal in young kids. The elder kid feels a bit deprived and if this issue is not taken up sooner then it may lead to a feeling of loneliness in him. Take the matter into your hands now and give him the message that you love him and need him. instead of treating him as a big boy, treat him as a child and also make him feel important. Plan your schedules in such a manner that you have some time left to spend with him to so that he understands that though you are busy, you still took time out for him cos you love him. all this will atke time so have patience and do it gradually.
