I have a six year old who loves to help mommy. I love him and I love that he wants to be helpful. My husband and I cannot seem to get through to him when we tell him not to pick up his five month old brother though. Any ideas out there?!

If, you think your son is too young to pick up the baby; therefore, you need to sit down and have a good talk with him about the baby, let him know that he is too young to hold the baby now, and tell him once he get older, he can help mom take care of the child then. One more thing, let your son know that he can't hold the baby, but he can help mom with other things for the baby, I wish y'all good luck.
