My daughter is 2.5 and my son is 7.5 months.
My daughter is amazing with her brother. She shares, is caring, and sweet to her brother. She'll have her jealous moments, but it is often short lived. She almost never hits, and will ofter her brother a different toy in place of the one she is playing with.
Now my son on the other hand, he can share toys, but not me. He has gone so far as to push his sister with all of his strength (which isn't much for his size), when ever she is on my lap. He with climb up on me if I'm playing with her and demand my attention right then, sharing it is not an option.
He does adore his sister, he misses her terribly when she is spending time with family away from us, or even during nap time. He just can't stand the idea that he has to share me.
It never even dawned on me that I'd have to deal with this so soon. I thought I'd at least have until he was 1. I really have no idea how to approach it. He's too little for conventional discipline. But something needs to be done, my daughter needs me just as much.
