hi Garima! I completely understand your concerns .most of the women who have two children have been sailing in the same boat. Garima it's not your child's fault rather he needs your help. he is seeking your attention through all these behaviors . consider this : One fine day out of the blues , his Mom disappeared and when she came back she had another baby in her lap whom she called her own and his sibling and from now on he is expected to share everything with this "so called" sibling . the child doesn't seem to understand the logic why is he there and from where did he appear? what his presence would do to him? what all he is expected to share? has his parents been snatched away by this sibling? is he no longer that "special" as he used to be ? will his life ever be back to normal? all these questions and confusions make him behave differently to seek answers to these questions. sometimes he might misbehave only to realize that his parents have changed (according to him) as their behavior towards him has changed . this further add to his woes and he continues to misbehave. it becomes a vicious circle . it's advisable please break it and come out of it by making your child realize that he still holds that important position in his parents lives. they are still proud of him. their love has not been divided between two kids and his share is intact and rather has multiplied. now all this can be done by hugging him, praising him, kissing him, taking him in your lap, spending exclusive moments with him and making him feel special. Garima he is just 3 years old and the burden of being an elder sibling is weighing him down. please help him out by giving him what he needs the most at this difficult phase of his life: his parents unconditional LOVE. hope this helps!!
