i am a mother of three. the eldest is a girl and the other two boys. they have 8 and 7 years interval. i noticed with my kids that jealousy arises with the sibling next to them. probably it's because they received full attention for a long time and seemed to them that it all gone when the next one arrived. Although they get along well with each other but most of the time my middle child would bully the youngest brother by talking nonsense while the young speaks everytime, he would throw away his toys and troubles with the play. it was so annoying that my middle child could not get away with the feeling of being snatched with his position as the youngest. I would just explained to them that i treat them the same way i do now with the youngest..it's just that the younger ones requires more attention and care than him because he can already stand alone unlike his younger brother..can u please explain and relate your experience..i could probably get some hint on how to deal with the elder ones in relation to the younger ones...
