Who doesn't want a calm, loving family life? Prevention is better than cure and parents can do a lot to help prepare older children for the arrival of a new sibling and start as you mean to go on.
A new addition to the family is a very exciting and happy occasion. When there is an older child at home, however, this excitement might be combined with concerns about how they’ll react to the new arrival.
Sibling rivalry happens at some point in most families after all. Being aware of these common mistakes can help reduce the likelihood of conflict although it’s not a guarantee that there won’t be any!!
