I am glad to join the group of Circle of moms. Actually i have an elder son who is 9 yrs old and a daughter who is 3. So far, I never faced much problem in handling both of them. But, as my li'l one is growing up, i am facing troubles in handling both of them. The reason being that my li'l one is too small to follow various instructions. however i understand that she is too small for behaving like a grown up kid. but my 9 yr old son is arguing in most of the situations, saying , " why don't you tell her to behave", why do you give her the preference, "mom you love her more than me", mom, why do you scold me in such a situation, whereas when she does the same you dont say anything to her", etc etc, etc.
In spite of my making him explain several times, that she is too small to understand what mumma is telling. she will take some time to listen to me or you. but he doesn't understand any of that. further, he is turning into a arguing child.
I am having a tough time, where on one hand I have the challenge of handling a toddler and on the other my 9yr old son is showing behavioral problems as well.
