I have five kids! 2 sets of twins ,and a singleton in between the twins. my singleton who is two years old constantly is fighting and crying all day everyday.. i know she is feeling lonely, since my twin girls who are the oldest, have each other and play more together. Then i have my second set of twin boys who just turned 5 months old. so im very busy with my boys as well.. i know my two year old is demading my attention and my oldest as well. i feel so sad and like a bad mom because, i cant give them what they want.. anyone else going through something like this similar? and if yes how do you divide your attention?

Thank you for your advice. yes we have pets, but she is kinda mean to them lol. one of the dogs had puppies who she treated so well and loved the puppies. but we got rid of them, due to having two dogs indoor already. i felt bad because she loved the puppies. but yes your right maybe a puppy would work. and yes i try my best to give her attention and more if i can.. its difficult but i guess its part of being a mommy :) Im doing the one day a week for her.. one day just her and i go out you kn0w. hopefully that works too.

I'm not going through tht but I do believe the middle child syndrome is real & plus if she feels left out becuz she doesn't have a twin I think u should give her the most attention.lol I may be wrong but tht's wht I would do & definitely if she seems unhappy or!u could buy a puppy?if u don't have one already tht would cheer her up & u could let her name it?idk a couple ideas lol
