obvious that the child has to, in - the first, to rejoice to the birth of the kid. In - the second, has to understand that it already big, and is required to the small child more than your care, than to it. But the senior - does not mean the adult. If not to prepare the child for the birth of the brother or sister and to lose with it contact for that time until you are absorbed by the kid demanding your care, for it this situation will look absolutely in a different way. The world which you created around your child failed. Just it was small, only and favourite. And suddenly, suddenly grew, and someone gets all your love to another. He begins to be jealous of younger.

that small to be very good, all love it just like that, all admire it, care for it, demand nothing from it. The child can begin to behave as small, showing that he needs your care too, can be capricious or misbehave to draw your attention. Can even try to vent the indignation on the younger child. It is very important to understand feelings of the child and not to punish him for it, not to ignore acts, and to talk.

Tell it as it is exciting - to have the brother or the sister, together it will be more interesting to it to play. Explain that you hope for its help that without it to you for anything not to cope. Ask opinion of the child as we will call the little sister what we will choose for her a bed. When the kid is born, do not forget that the senior child needs still your attention. Do not demand from it too much, do not ignore it, try to involve the senior child in process of care of younger softly. But do not charge it with too complex challenges. Also do not forget to praise.

to reduce a stress, it is possible to give to the senior child a soft and effective sedative. For example, the “children`s Tenoten“ developed especially for children. The preparation perfectly is suitable for school students - it does not cause block and day drowsiness, stimulates memory and attention. It is noticed that the child, the accepting “children`s Tenoten“, becomes more attentive and assidious.


Main, do not forget to express as often as possible approval and love that the child did not doubt that you love it still.
